What can I do until I get an appointment with an emergency dentist near me in Watertown, Wisconsin?
Dental emergencies can happen at the worst times---when you are on vacation, at a sports game, on the playground, at a birthday party. If you have a chipped or cracked tooth, a tooth falls out, a sudden toothache, lose a filling or crown or have an impacted wisdom tooth, don’t hesitate to call your dentist office. Area Dental Clinic has two experienced dentists near Watertown, Wisconsin, Dr. Gibson and Dr. Thomas, who can treat you and get you on your way, without pain.
Chipped or cracked tooth
The first step if you have a chipped or cracked tooth is to call (920) 261-0495 (don’t email!) immediately for an emergency dentist appointment. Rinse your mouth with warm water, and apply a cold compress to alleviate pain and swelling.
Tooth falls out
A tooth falling out is a true dental emergency, and treatment is the same whether the tooth is a permanent or baby tooth. Time is of the essence if you have any hope of saving the tooth. Call (920) 261-0495 (don’t email!) immediately for an emergency dentist appointment. Pick the tooth up, and try not to touch the tooth root. If you can, put the tooth back in your mouth and push the tooth down by closing your mouth. If putting the tooth in your mouth isn’t possible, or you’re worried about swallowing the tooth, keep it moist until you have your emergency dentist appointment.
Toothache
Treat a toothache by gently cleaning the tooth and removing any food stuck in your teeth with dental floss. Do not apply any pain relievers, such as aspirin, to the affected area because it may burn the gums. If you have any swelling, apply a cold pack. Do not use heat. Avoid any hot or cold foods that may cause more pain. If your toothache persists for more than 24 hours, is extremely painful or may be caused by an infection or injury, schedule an emergency dentist appointment near Watertown .
Lost filling or crown
A lost filling or crown can happen at the worst time, and at any time. If you’ve lost a filling or crown, the most important thing you can do is call (920) 261-0495 (don’t email!) immediately for an emergency dentist appointment with a dentist near you in Watertown, Wisconsin. Tell the office staff exactly what your dental emergency is, and ask for any emergency dentist appointment (dentists typically keep these appointments open for dental emergencies such as yours). Sometimes, depending on the circumstances surrounding your lost filling or crown, you can wait a few days to see your dentist (no longer!). While you’re waiting for your emergency dentist appointment, follow these steps for a lost filling:

• Take the filling out. Do not try to reattach the filling on your own.

• Keep the area clean in your mouth so food doesn’t get stuck.

• If you have any sensitivity or pain, ask your dentist office what they recommend for pain relief.

• Go in as soon as possible for your emergency dentist appointment.
A lost crown is a different kind of dental emergency, and requires different steps:

• Wash and dry the crown or cap.

• Ask your dentist if you should try to temporarily cement the crown back in your mouth. If they say yes, use a bit of dental cement or adhesive (such as Fixodent) to try to reattach the crown or cap.

• Go in as soon as possible for your emergency dentist appointment.

If you have any questions about what to do about your dental emergency in Watertown, please contact your dentist.
