Begin by cleaning around the sore tooth meticulously. Using warm salt water, rinse the mouth or floss to displace any food trapped between teeth. UNDER NO CIRCUMSTANCES should you use aspirin on the aching tooth or on the gum. Contact our office as soon as possible at 201-796-4111.



Cut or Bitten Tongue, Lip, or Cheek

Ice can be applied to any bruised areas. For bleeding, apply firm pressure with sterile gauze or a clean cloth. If the bleeding does not stop with pressure, or continues after 15 minutes, go to an emergency room.



Broken Braces and Wires

Remove a broken appliance only if it comes out easily. If it is lodged or painful to remove, cover any protruding edges with wax, cotton balls, gauze, or chewing gum. DO NOT REMOVE any wire caught in the gums, cheek, or tongue - call the office soon as possible 201-796-4111.



Broken Tooth

Rinse the area with warm water. Put a cold compress over the facial area of the injury. Recover any broken tooth fragments. Take a picture of the tooth.

Call our office 201-796-4111.



Knocked Out Permanent Tooth

Recover the tooth, making sure to hold it by the crown (top) and not the root end. Rinse, but do not clean or handle the tooth more than necessary. Reinsert the tooth in the socket and hold it in cup with saliva, milk or water. Call our office 201-796-4111.
