Dental emergency tips

For a knocked-out or dislodged adult tooth, try to keep it moist at all times. Try to keep it between your cheek and gums or in milk.

For a cracked tooth, rinse the mouth with warm water and put an ice pack on the face to keep the swelling down.

For objects stuck in the mouth, use floss to gently remove it but do not use any pointed or sharp instruments.

If you bite your tongue or lip, gently clean the area with water and apply a cold compress.
