Dr. Isaacson Can Give the Emergency Care You Need to Preserve Your Oral Health in Trying Times

November 8, 2013

We all knows that accidents happen – often when we least expect it. Your oral health isn’t immune to this principle, either. Even for people who diligently brush and floss, a shocking injury or spot of hidden decay can have sudden, devastating effects if not cared for swiftly. That’s why Dr. Joe Isaacson is sure to provide emergency dental care at his Oklahoma City office. Our dedicated team will always try our best to see your emergency case the same day you call in, whether you’ve completely knocked out a tooth or are experiencing sudden pain in your mouth. Here are some steps for what you should do before you reach us when faced with common dental emergencies:

Knocked-Out Tooth

First, rinse the tooth gently with water; be sure not to pull off any pieces of tissue! If you can, place it back in its socket until you can reach our office. If this simply isn’t possible, placing it in a cup or plastic bag of milk is a viable alternative. Be sure to bring it with you! Once you’re here, we can determine whether reattachment is a viable option.

Broken Tooth

Rinse your tooth with warm water and then hold a cold compress against it. This should help reduce the swelling while you travel to our office.

Bad Toothache

Rinse your mouth as exhaustively as possible and floss all around the tooth that’s in pain; this could help dislodge any debris that may be causing the problem. If the feeling isn’t relieved, call our office.

Losing a Temporary Crown

Did you lose it? If not, dry your tooth, apply a small amount of toothpaste to the crown, and place it back in its original spot. Then, call our office so that we can schedule a time for you to come in; then, we can reattach it more effectively.
