Common dental emergencies include:

Toothache – this can be a sign of an abscess, so you’ll need to get it checked out as soon as possible.

Knocked-out tooth – teeth that have the highest chance of being saved are those that are replaced within an hour of being knocked out. Pick your tooth up by the white part and gently try and re-insert it. If this is not possible, submerge it in milk and bring it with you to the dentist.

Broken braces – you can temporarily reattach a broken bracket using orthodontic wax, but it’s best to see your dentist as soon as possible to rectify the situation.

Rinse your mouth well with warm water. If you can’t replace the broken tooth in your mouth, store it in milk until you can get to your dentist.

Apply pressure with a piece of gauze on any bleeding areas for about 10 minutes or until the bleeding stops. If this doesn’t work, use a tea bag with pressure on the area to stop the bleeding.

Apply a cold compress to the cheek or lips over the broken tooth, to reduce swelling and pain, and take paracetamol or ibuprofen for the pain.

If you’re a dental plan member, call the 24-hour hotline for emergency advice, wherever you are.

If you experience any of the following, you will need to get treatment at a hospital:

Significant bleeding that won’t stop
