Pain and Bleeding After Tooth Removal

Place a gauze pad on the wound where the tooth was removed and bite down on the gauze to stop the bleeding.

Broken Orthodontics

Push the broken metallic wire into a safe position that cannot injure your gums. If that is not possible, cover the end of the metallic wire with a piece of gauze or a small cotton ball.


Place an ice pack on the side of the cheek where there is an infection to reduce swelling.

Lost Tooth Crown  or Filling

Place a sugarless chewing gum in place of the tooth crown to act as a temporary crown.

Knocked-out Tooth

If you find the knocked-out tooth, pick it up by the crown and rinse off the tooth’s roots if dirty. Next, dip the tooth in a glass of milk and take it to the emergency dentist.
