In an emergency, its best to be prepared, so make sure your first aid kit at home also contains items for Dental Emergencies. In the event you can’t reach your dentist, check if there’s any hospitals that offer emergency dental care so you can have your issue taken care of right away.
If it’s the gum or tissues (cheeks, lips or tongue) around the teeth that are a controversy, then treat it right away with a warm saline solution. If there’s bleeding, press a gauze or tea bag to the injured area for about twenty minutes. To relieve pain, use a chilled compress outside of the mouth over the affected area. If the bleeding continues, see your dentist or go to the emergency room right away.
