Urgent dental conditions

In any urgent situation, it’s essential to stay calm but react as quickly as possible! The quicker the reaction, the greater the chances of saving the tooth or resolving any arising issue. Our doctors are available for this type of intervention.

We work from 12 PM to 8 PM from Monday to Friday. If there is an injury that requires urgent intervention, please call us, and we will do everything in our power to assist you as soon as possible!

We will provide you with a few suggestions and recommendations to increase the chances of a successful intervention.

If you have knocked out a tooth:

  • If possible, find the knocked-out tooth. Avoid touching the root of the tooth; hold it by the crown (the part that is normally visible in the mouth). Touching the root reduces the chances of successfully replanting the tooth.
  • Rinse the tooth in saliva or milk. Do not use water!
  • Keep the tooth moist at all times. If you can, try to place it back into the socket it came from. If this isn’t possible, place the tooth between your cheek and gum or in a cup of milk. DO NOT USE WATER!
  • You can apply a cold compress to the outside of the area where the tooth came out.
  • Call us and come in as soon as possible.

If you have broken or chipped a tooth:

Depending on the nature of the tooth injury, you may not be able to see the fracture, and there may not be constant pain. You may only feel pain when chewing, eating, or drinking something cold. In other cases, the tooth may be visibly damaged, and there may be constant pain due to nerve injury. In any case, it is necessary to visit us as soon as possible. But before you arrive at our clinic, you should:

  • Rinse your mouth with warm water.
  • Apply gauze to any area where there is bleeding.
  • To reduce pain, you can apply a cold compress. DO NOT use ASPIRIN under any circumstances!

If your tooth suddenly hurts:

Never ignore tooth pain, even if it worsens and then suddenly stops! This means the nerve is damaged, but the infection that caused it is still present.

  • Pay attention to the toothache, remember how long it lasts, and if there is any swelling.
  • Take your usual pain medication (avoid aspirin and ibuprofen).
  • Rinse your mouth with warm salt water once every hour.
  • Contact us as soon as possible.

Remember: In case of any emergency situation – react calmly, but quickly and efficiently!
