How To Deal With Dental Emergencies

Dental emergencies often appear without warning and may catch you unprepared, but there are steps you can take to minimise the damage until you see a dentist.

Key takeaways:

  • Keep bleeding under control by putting pressure on the wound with a gauze or compress.
  • Chipped or lost fillings can be replaced with temporary fillings sold in pharmacies.

Always do your best to get a dental appointment as soon as possible if you experience any of these emergency situations.
