Dental emergencies can happen at any time. But, if you handle the situation immediately trauma to the mouth and teeth can be significantly reduced. The infographic provided below shows you how to deal with commonly occurring dental emergencies:

Special Tip – Keep a dental emergency kit on stand-by at all times. A dental aid kit must include a handkerchief, cotton balls, small container with a lid, saline solution, solution for sensitive teeth or an alternative such as clove oil water and your dentist’s phone number. This way you can ensure you have help whenever necessary and reduce the chances of any long-term damage to your mouth.

Lastly, remember to stay calm while administering help in such situations. Visit the dentist as soon as possible in order to prevent the chances of further damage.
