That’s why he provides urgent dental care. If you feel you need a dentist immediately, call David Spilkia Family and Cosmetic Dentistry, located in Philadelphia, PA.
Common dental emergencies:
- Knocked out permanent tooth: If you experience an accident in which one or more teeth are knocked out, keep the tooth moist. Often, if you can make it to a dentist in time, the tooth can be placed back in the socket.
- Cracked tooth: Rinse immediately with warm water to clean the area. Use a cold compress on the outside of the mouth to help keep swelling down.
- Infected tooth: If your tooth is sensitive and painful to touch or to heat, it is probably infected. Rinse your mouth with lukewarm water and call us so we can advise further action needed.
- Objects stuck in between teeth or in the gums: Attempt to gently remove the object using floss. Do not use any type of sharp object to attempt removal as this can seriously injure the mouth.
