How to Stay Prepared
While you can’t always prepare for the unexpected, you can do a few things to make an emergency dental situation easier to handle if the time comes. Here are some helpful tips for you and your family:
- Always carry your insurance card just in case you have to make an emergency visit to the dentist.
- Make an emergency kit with some items that may be useful, including gauze (for bleeding), sterile gloves (to handle a knocked-out tooth), salt (to create a saltwater solution to sterilize your mouth), and ibuprofen (for pain management and swelling).
- Program our phone number in your phone’s contacts and keep a copy on the fridge for easy access.
- Research common dental emergencies and what to do in the moment if something happens.
- Remember to stay calm. Dental emergencies can be scary and stressful. Staying calm can help you make the right decisions.
