When someone you care about is having a dental emergency, you don’t want to find yourself wondering what to do. You want to know where to go and how to respond.

1. Address the Issue

This will vary depending on the emergency, but it may mean rinsing your mouth if you are bleeding because of a dental injury. You may need to apply gauze as well. For a knocked-out tooth, you should rinse it and put it in a container of milk if you can find it.

2. Reduce Pain

An over-the-counter pain reliever can be helpful in many situations. You also may consider applying a cold pack to reduce swelling for potential dental injuries.
