Floss between each of your teeth to make sure nothing’s lodged between them and causing you discomfort. If the pain continues, rinse with saltwater and take an over-the-counter pain medication like ibuprofen to help you feel more comfortable until you receive treatment.

Chipped/Broken Tooth

Retrieve the broken-off piece of tooth from the floor and gently rinse it off and store it in a sealable container to bring to your appointment. If a sharp edge has been created by the damage, you can place a piece of orthodontic wax over the area to keep it from irritating your oral tissues.

Time is of the essence, so try to get to our dental office within an hour of the incident. Retrieve your tooth off the ground, being sure to only handle it by the biting surface and rinse it under cool water. Store it in a sealable container of milk or saltwater, and don’t forget to bring it to your appointment.

It’s important to visit our dental office in a timely manner so we can repair or replace your crown or filling and keep additional damage from occurring.
