Soreness and minor hot and cold sensitivity are common symptoms following dental treatment. This normally resolves within a few days. Spontaneous tooth pain is more concerning and should be addressed as soon as possible. If you are in pain or have any concerns, please call our office to arrange an appointment. Tylenol and saltwater rinse may help as a short–term solution.
If an adult tooth has completely come out (usually due to trauma) immediate treatment is required. Make sure to hold the tooth by the crown (top) and not the root. If possible gently rinse off debris (do not clean or scrub) and reinsert the tooth in the socket. Hold the tooth in place and come to the office. If the tooth cannot be reinserted, place it in a cup of milk and come directly to the office.
Broken teeth should be treated as soon as possible to prevent further damage and unnecessary pain. If you have any swelling in the area, cold ice packs can help. Call us as soon as possible to book an appointment.
If you experience abnormal bleeding or swelling beyond what was described by your dentist, please call us immediately. For after hours care, please go to the emergency hospital.
