Step 3: Manage Toothache or Dental Pain

Toothaches are often a symptom of underlying issues. To temporarily manage the pain, rinse your mouth with warm salt water and gently floss to remove any trapped food particles. Over-the-counter pain relievers can also help, but avoid placing them directly on the gums.

If a tooth has been knocked out, time is of the essence:

  • Pick up the tooth by the crown (not the root).
  • Gently rinse the tooth without scrubbing.
  • If possible, attempt to place it back in the socket or hold it within your cheek to keep it moist.
  • Alternatively, keep it in a glass of milk or saline solution.

Save any broken pieces, rinse your mouth, and apply a cold compress to reduce swelling. Avoid chewing on the affected side to prevent further damage and cover sharp edges with sugarless gum.

For fillings, stick a piece of sugarless gum into the cavity. If a crown has fallen out, attempt to slip it back over the tooth after coating the inner surface with dental cement (if available), or toothpaste.

For injuries to the lips, cheeks, gums, or tongue, clean the area with water and apply pressure with gauze or a tea bag. If the bleeding persists, seek immediate medical attention.

Step 4: Prepare for your Emergency Dental Appointment

Gather any fragments of teeth, fillings, or crowns to bring with you. Write down the details of the incident and any actions you have taken.
