Emergency Dental Care Stuart FL

Dental emergencies can happen to anyone! Contact us immediately for help. At Riggs Family Dentistry we are an emergency dentist Stuart option to help with all varieties of dental services.


Here Are Common Tips To Help With Emergency Dental Issues:




  • If your tooth has been knocked out, keep it moist! Attempt to place the tooth back into its socket. Try not to touch the root. If that is not possible, hold it between your cheek and gums. Contact our office immediately. Time is of the essence and you need dental care right away!


  • If your tooth has cracked or you may have a chipped tooth, rinse your mouth with warm water and try to clean the area as best you can. Cold compress your face to help keep any swelling down.


  • If you severely bite your tongue or lip, try and clean the area as best you can and apply a cold compress. Depending on the severity call an emergency dentist like Dr. Riggs if it’s a dental emergency, or for more severe cases go to a hospital.


  • For severe toothaches or tooth pain, immediately rinse your mouth with warm water. Look for food caught between teeth and floss if possible. Sometimes it could simply be food trapped under the gums. If you have an object stuck in between your teeth, try to remove gently with floss. Do not, under any circumstances, use a sharp object. If it’s still bothering you, you may want to look into emergency dental care.
