Have a Dental Emergency
Do you have a painful toothache, broken tooth, or dental abscess? Sleek Dental in Kyle, TX offers same-day emergency care for new and existing patients of all ages.
The best thing to do if you’re in pain because of a dental emergency is to take an over-the-counter anti-inflammatory such as Motrin (ibuprofen) as directed. You can also rinse with warm salt water to alleviate swelling or apply a cold compress to that side of your face.
If there is localized swelling around a tooth, you may want to brush and floss that area to check for any food that may be lodged just under the gumlines. For minor bleeding, apply firm pressure to the area until the bleeding subsides.
