Emergency Dentistry FAQs
What should I do if I lose a tooth?
If a tooth is knocked out or lost, try to locate the tooth. If you can find the tooth, only handle it by the crown of the tooth. Gently rinse any debris off the tooth but do not scrub or remove any attached root structure. Place the tooth in a cup of the patient’s saliva or in milk. Contact our Rockville, MD dentist office immediately. Be sure to bring the tooth with you to your scheduled appointment. You may rinse your mouth with warm water and apply a clean compress to stop any bleeding.
Can I reattach my own dental crown?
Never attempt to reattach a broken or lost dental filling, crown, or any other type of dental restoration. If a filling or crown is lost or broken, contact Congressional Dental Care to have a new restoration fit.
Why am I experiencing extreme tooth pain?
Tooth pain or swelling is typically a result of advanced tooth decay or infection. Contact our Rockville, MD dentist office as soon as possible to schedule a dental health exam. In rare cases, tooth pain may be a result of an abscess and should be addressed right away.
