Urgent, Weekend and After- work Dental Emergency Treatment
While we all try to be careful with our pearly whites, accidents do happen. Sometimes, these accidents occur when we’re off work and after business hours. If a dental emergency occurs after work on a weekday, you should try to address the issue as soon as possible. However, if an accident happens on the weekend or after work, here are a few things you should do to maintain oral health and avoid pain and further damage:
Stop the bleeding: If you suffer a cut in your mouth, you may not even realize it. The blood can coagulate in your mouth and may not be visible. If you bite down on something and feel pain, there may be a bleeding lesion that needs attention.
Rinse your mouth with warm salt water: This home remedy has been used for centuries to heal wounds and cuts in the mouth. All you need is a cup of salt water and a few minutes.
Contact your local emergency dentist: Contact us as soon as you can so we can assess you and get your treatment started.
