What Should I do in a Dental Emergency?

First of all, stay calm. Second, call Luck Dental Care in Cypress, TX at (281) 304-1777 or visit us at 17990 Huffmeister Rd, Cypress, TX 77429 and we will help in any way we can. Other immediate actions you can when you find yourself in a dental emergency include: 

  1. For toothaches, a cracked or broken tooth: 

Rinse your mouth with warm water mixed with a little salt. Apply an ice pack to the area to help reduce discomfort.

  1. For a knocked-out tooth/teeth: 

Do not touch the root. If you can, secure the tooth in the socket or put it in a cup of milk to keep the tooth from drying out.

  1. For objects stuck between your teeth:

Gently try to floss it out to dislodge it. Avoid sharp instruments as they may hurt your teeth or gums.

  1. For bleeding inside the mouth from an injury:

Apply pressure and a cool compress to the affected area if possible. For severe head/facial injury or blood loss, call 911 or go to the nearest emergency department for evaluation.

Tooth pain that is accompanied by swelling, fever, or discharge could be signs of a serious infection such as a dental abscess. While these may not necessarily be an after-hours emergency, they do need to be addressed as soon as possible, either the next day or by an urgent care facility if we are closed and the pain is unbearable.

Emergency Dental Services for Children

Often, children experience more dental injuries than adults. Without knowing better young children put toys and other destructive items in their mouths which can damage their teeth. Children who are very active and/or play sports are also more likely to sustain an injury to the mouth, causing alarm for all involved.

Whether your child is a toddler or a teenager, it is our goal to make everyone feel comfortable and safe. We serve children as well as adults in the event of an emergency, and Dr. David Luck has a vast experience with emergency dental care for all ages.
