First Aid for Broken and Lost Teeth

Emergency Dentistry Livermore Patient Photo Emergency Dentistry Livermore Patient

Quick action is vital with missing and broken teeth. Here’s what you need to do:

Bleeding After a Baby Tooth Falls Out - Fold a piece of gauze and place it (tightly) over the bleeding area. Bite down on the gauze for 15 minutes. If bleeding continues, see a dentist.

Cold or Canker Sores - Over-the-counter medications will usually provide temporary relief. If sores persist, visit your Livermore dentist.

General Dental First Aid

Broken Tooth

  • Rinse the area with warm water.
  • Place a cold compress over the facial area of the injury (Not more than 15-20 minutes at a time. Do not put uncovered ice/compress directly on skin).
  • Recover any broken tooth fragments.
  • Contact us for immediate dental care.

Knocked Out Permanent Tooth

  • Recover the tooth, making sure to hold it by the crown (top) and not the root end.
  • Rinse the tooth, but do not clean or handle it for more than necessary.
  • Place the tooth under your tongue or, if you cannot keep it under your tongue, place it in a cup containing milk or water.
  • Time is crucial when reattaching a tooth. Don’t hesitate. Contact our office immediately.

Tooth Ache

  • Meticulously clean around the sore tooth.
  • Using warm saltwater, rinse the mouth to dislodge any food trapped between teeth.
  • Under no circumstances should you use aspirin on the aching tooth or on the gum.
  • In the event of facial swelling, apply a cold compress to the area. (Not more than 15-20 minutes at a time. Do not put uncovered ice/compress directly on skin).
  • For temporary pain relief, Ibuprofen is recommended. See a dentist as soon as possible.

Cut or Bitten Tongue, Lip or Cheek

  • Ice can be applied to any bruised areas. (Not more than 15-20 minutes at a time. Do not put uncovered ice/compress directly on skin).
  • For bleeding, apply firm but gentle pressure with sterile gauze or a clean cloth.
  • If the bleeding does not stop with pressure or continues after 15 minutes, go to an emergency room.

Broken Braces and Wires

  • Remove a broken appliance only if it comes out easily. If it is lodged or painful to remove, cover any protruding edges with wax, cotton balls, gauze or chewing gum.
  • Do not remove any wire caught in the gums, cheek or tongue. See a dentist immediately.
  • Emergency attention is usually not required for loose or broken appliances that cause no discomfort.
