Adult Dental Emergencies at Dr Smile Southport

Dental emergencies in adults require prompt and skilled care to prevent further complications and alleviate pain. Here’s how we handle various adult dental emergencies:

Lost Fillings or Crowns

Keep the filling or crown safe, avoid chewing on that side, and visit your dentist soon.

Dislodged Teeth

Try to reposition the tooth gently, bite down to keep it in place, and see a dentist right away.

Severe Toothache

Rinse the mouth with warm water and use dental floss to remove trapped food. See a dentist immediately if pain persists.

Chipped, Broken, or Fractured Teeth

Rinse your mouth, apply a cold compress, and see a dentist as soon as possible.


These are serious infections needing immediate attention. Contact us if you notice a painful, pimple-like swelling on your gums.

Tailored Care for Children in Dental Emergencies

Children’s dental emergencies need special attention. Here’s how to manage some common situations:

Injuries to the Tongue, Lip, or Cheek

For bruising, apply ice. If there’s bleeding, use a gauze or cloth to apply gentle pressure. If bleeding is severe or doesn’t stop with pressure, head to the emergency room.


Gently clean around the sore tooth. Rinse with warm water and use dental floss to remove any trapped food. Avoid placing aspirin on the tooth or gums. If there’s facial swelling, apply a cold compress and see a dentist promptly.

Knocked-Out Permanent Tooth

Find the tooth and handle it by the crown, not the root. Rinse it gently without scrubbing. If possible, reinsert it into the socket and bite down on gauze to hold it in place. If you can’t reinsert it, keep the tooth in a container of milk or the patient’s saliva and seek immediate dental care. Time is crucial in saving the tooth.

For baby teeth, do not attempt to reinsert them. Instead, seek immediate dental advice.
