Dental Emergencies

We understand that you can't schedule a dental emergency! If an emergency occurs, we urge you to contact us at 912.764.5625 immediately. We will schedule you to meet with Dr. Lane as soon as possible. There are a few steps you can take in the meantime to reduce pain and discomfort and to prepare for your dental visit.

Begin by cleaning around the sore tooth meticulously. Using warm salt water, rinse the mouth to displace 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. For temporary pain relief, acetaminophen is recommended. Please contact us for an appointment if the pain persists more than a day.

Ice can be applied to any bruised areas. 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.

Rinse the area with warm water. Put a cold compress over the facial area of the injury. Recover any broken tooth fragments. Seek immediate dental attention.

Recover the tooth, making sure to hold it by the crown (top) and not the root. Rinse, but do not clean or handle the tooth more than necessary. Re-insert the tooth in the socket, and hold it in place using a clean piece of gauze or cloth. If the tooth cannot be reinserted, carry it in a cup containing milk or water. As time is essential, see a dentist immediately.

In the event of jaw injury, tie the mouth closed with a towel, tie, or handkerchief. Go to an emergency room immediately.

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.

Over-the-counter medications will usually provide temporary relief. If sores persist, visit your dentist.
