What first aid actions can I take for a toothache?
For a toothache, gently clean the area around the tooth and rinse out your mouth with warm saltwater. Use a cold compress on your cheek to reduce swelling.
What about broken braces?
Remove any broken pieces if you can do so without causing any discomfort. If pieces of the brace protrude, but you can’t remove them, cover the protruding section with cotton or gauze to protect your cheeks and other soft parts inside your mouth.
What about a chipped or cracked tooth?
We try to see patients with a chipped or cracked tooth within 48 hours.
