What to Do if I’m Having a Dental Emergency?
Remember, during a dental emergency, the best thing you can do is stay calm. This is especially true when dealing with child patients. Parents can become anxious and make the situation worse, especially if they know their child is in pain and they don’t know how to help them. In the case of a lost tooth, recover the tooth, rinse it, and place it in a cup of milk until you get to the dentist’s office or ER. Seek help immediately.
