Pain, problems or sensitivity
If it is a widespread pain, which does not wake up at night, we advise you to take 500 mg of Tylenol every 4 to 6 hours.
If it is a pain that prevents you from sleeping, we advise you to call us at the clinic, leave us a message and your dentist will tell you what to do or take by evaluating your situation with various questions.
For a broken tooth that causes irritation to the tongue or cheek, you can use a clean fingernail file that has been cleaned with rubbing alcohol. File the portion of the tooth that is irritating. If you are unable to do so, call us.
We then advise you to eat on the other side to avoid the tooth that hurts and to opt for softer food until we are able to assess your tooth.
If the pain becomes very severe or if it wakes you up at night, call us.
We suggest that you limit your intake of food or cold liquids and brush with a sensitive tooth paste such as Sensodyne Fast Action or Colgate Pro Relief and apply it on the sensitive tooth root.
It is very important not to spit, rinse, eat or drink for 30 minutes after the procedure.
We also advise you to limit acidic fruits like citrus fruits and vinegar-based dressings like balsamic vinegar.
We recommend that you put it back in place using poligrip or fixodent type denture adhesive found in pharmacies. You just have to put a good quantity of it inside the crown with a Qtip.
However, we advise you to remove it at bedtime to avoid the risk of swallowing it.
If the tooth does not hurt, we advise you to avoid chewing on this tooth while eating on the other side. It is important to keep the hole clean by cleaning the tooth and the hole with your toothbrush. You can dislodge the food that has accumulated in the hole with a toothpick, going gently.
If your tongue still tends to go into the hole, you can always place a SUGAR-FREE chewing gum in the hole to plug the cavity.
