A dental emergency is usually caused by a blow to the teeth, a bad fall or an accident. It can also occur when someone has neglected to seek treatment for a tooth with severe caries, which ends up breaking.

Knocked-out tooth

  • Locate the tooth.
  • If the tooth is dirty, rinse it under running water. Do not scrub.
  • Put the tooth in a glass of cold water or milk, or keep it in the mouth.
  • Contact us immediately

  • If we are not available, contact the closest hospital or dial 15 for the Emergency Merdical Care Services (SAMU - Service d'Aide Medicale d'Urgence)
  • The fastest the tooth is put back in place, the better the healing will be. Act as promptly as possible

Broken tooth

  • Gently clean the affected area with lukewarm water.
  • Apply an ice pack to the affected area.
  • Contact us immediately

Bitten tongue or lip

  • Using a clean cloth, apply direct pressure to the wound to stop the bleeding.
  • If there is swelling, apply cold compresses to the wound.
  • If bleeding persists, contact us

Swelling or gum abscess

  • Rinse the mouth with lukewarm salt water four times a day.
  • Take an analgesic.
  • Apply lukewarm compresses to the face.
  • Contact us as soon as possible.

Particle lodged between the teeth

  • Try to remove the particle with dental floss. Do not use a pointed or sharp instrument.
  • If the particle cannot be dislodged, contact us.

Injury from an orthodontic appliance

  • If an orthodontic appliance or component (e.g. a wire) is causing injury to the soft tissues of the mouth, place a piece of wax on the part that is causing the irritation. Contact us if required.
