In the event of a dental emergency, we will make every effort to attend to you within the same day. Contact us immediately for assistance in case of emergency.
What do I do if I have a toothache?
A toothache is a common dental emergency. In the event of this problem, rinse the mouth out with warm water to clean it out. Gently use dental floss or an interdental cleaner to ensure that there is no food or other debris caught between the teeth.
Never put aspirin or any other painkiller against the gums near the aching tooth because it may burn the gum tissue. If the pain persists, call our office immediately.
What do I do if a crown comes off?
Crowns are required to rebuild teeth that have been worn down, broken, have had root canal therapy, or have had multiple dental repairs over many years. Crowns are precision made and cemented on top of the tooth. If a crown is loose, call our office immediately. It may indicate that caries is present under it. If not attended right away, tooth might start hurting. You may even lose the tooth.
Occasionally, the crown comes off. This leaves the tooth unprotected, and often sensitive. You can temporarily remedy this problem by using temporary dental cement found at the drug store, and carefully re-cementing the crown. Never wait more than a few days to get a crown re-cemented. Teeth move and shift very quickly without the crown in place. Sometimes it is not possible to reuse the crown if the teeth have shifted significantly, requiring the dentist to have to make a new crown.
What do I do if I have a broken tooth?
Rinse your mouth with warm water to clean the area. Use cold compresses on the area to keep any swelling down. Call Dr. Cabi immediately. This is a dental emergency that is best dealt with by a dental professional.
What do I do if an object gets caught between my teeth?
Try to gently remove the object with dental floss; avoid cutting the gums. Never use a sharp instrument to remove any object that is stuck between your teeth. If you can't dislodge the object using dental floss, contact Dr Cabi to set up an appointment.
