S _ _ _ Happens.

Sometimes no matter how cautious we are, accidents happen.   Here are a few helpful hits in case something happens to your mouth.

  1. Get help (professional if you can) and get it as quickly as possible.
  2. Stop bleeding by applying pressure.
  3. Ice the traumatized area;10 minutes on and 10 minutes off for 2 hours.
  4. Keep any lost fillings, caps, teeth or pieces of teeth, keeping them moist in milk or water.
  5. If you can, take an anti-inflammatory such as aspirin, ibuprofen (Advil) or naproxen (Aleve).
  6. Don’t go it alone or wait….call your dentist as soon as you can.
