Experiencing dental emergencies is no fun, of course. Today we’re sharing a video by the ADA that talks about ways you can prevent dental emergencies at home. 

However, since it’s hard to plan for a dental emergency, it’s good to know what to do if one happens. If you’ve lost a tooth, save the tooth in a glass of milk or place it back into the tooth socket right away. If you have chipped a tooth, rinse out your mouth with salt water, apply pressure to stop any bleeding, and hold a cold compress to the area to reduce swelling.

These are just a couple of the emergencies we handle on a regular basis. If you are facing dental emergencies in Cumming, GA, call Inspiring Smiles right away at 770-738-4103 for an appointment. You can also schedule online for any non-emergency appointments.
