Before you go, rinse your mouth with warm water to keep the area clean and apply a cold compress on your cheek to minimize any swelling while you head to the emergency dentist.
  2. A toothache is often a sign of a larger dental concern, so you should seek emergency dental services Peoria to quickly reduce both the pain and the problem. But first, gently rinse your mouth with warm water to soothe any soreness and then immediately get to an emergency dentist Peoria.
  3. When you injure your jaw, you must immediately seek emergency dental services Peoria. On your way to the clinic, you can reduce any swelling by placing a cold compress on your cheek.
  4. When an accident or injury leads to a knocked out tooth, you need immediate emergency care. First, try to find the tooth and only hold it by the crown to avoid touching the root.
