1. Pain and Bleeding After Tooth Removal
Place a gauze pad on the wound where the tooth was removed and bite down on the gauze to stop the bleeding.
2. Broken Orthodontics
Push the broken metallic wire into a safe position that cannot injure your gums. If that is not possible, cover the end of the metallic wire with a piece of gauze or a small cotton ball.
3. Lost Tooth Crown or Filling
Place a sugarless chewing gum in place of the tooth crown to act as a temporary crown.
4. Knocked-out Tooth
If you find the knocked-out tooth, pick it up by the crown and rinse off the tooth’s roots if dirty. Next, dip the tooth in a glass of milk and take it to the emergency dentist.
Avoid painkillers as they’ll mask the pain temporarily. Instead, apply a cold compress on the aching side.
