Before You Call
There are some ways to treat your pain and assist in your own recovery before seeing our oral and maxillofacial surgeons for a dental emergency in Carbondale, IL. If you have a toothache or are experiencing oral pain, you can take an over-the-counter pain reliever as directed on the packaging. If you have a tooth knocked out and still have the tooth in one piece, clean it with water but be careful not to remove any attached tissue. Then put the tooth back into the socket if possible and hold it there. Otherwise, place it in a small container of milk to preserve it. We may be able to put the tooth back into place if we’re able to treat it soon enough.
