Fractured Tooth Treatment for Emergencies
In the event you have a dental emergency and don’t have a local dentist, you can look in the Yellow Pages under fractured tooth treatment. It’s not that easy to find the directory these days however.
The first thing you should do when you have a fractured or broken tooth is make an appointment with your dentist. Of course s/he may not be able to see you right away, so you need to do some preventive measures. Depending on how badly damaged it is there are various ways to approach fractured teeth.
If you find it to be a serious problem you might be able to find dentist’s temporary cement at the pharmacy or drug store. When you search for ‘what to do if you have a broken tooth’, you will find several articles under such search terms. It’s not so difficult to find as it once was. There is a great deal of information under those keywords.
But for the best advice on how to treat a chipped tooth, you can call the emergency help line at the local hospital. They usually have a registered nurse on duty at all times. Sometimes retired doctors and nurses volunteer and will give advice as well.
Another possibility, is to look for retired social groups that live in your community and have local ‘help lines’. If you are in a great deal of pain, they will have remedial work arounds too. They can tell you what to do if you have a broken tooth. Ice packs are always good for just about every injury there is. You can apply them to the affected area.
