This is easily one of the most painful emergencies. You’re going to want to call the dentist as soon as possible. Meanwhile, rinse out your mouth with warm water, and try to keep the tooth if possible. Also, try to put an ice-pack on it in transit to the dental office.
Toothaches can be the symptom of a lot of different issues. There is no way to correctly self-identify what the cause is by yourself. The best thing to do is start with rinsing out your mouth with some warm water. Then try to gently floss around the tooth to make sure no food is hanging out around there. If it persists, you’re going to need to take a trip to the dentist. An x-ray should help identify the underlying cause.
Oh boy, this is not fun. Hopefully, you didn’t swallow it on accident. If you did, don’t worry you’re not going to die. Try to keep the crown or filling if you still have it and bring it with you to the dentist.
Your tooth is going to be very sensitive to almost any sensation of things going into your mouth. That includes air. You can use clove oil to try to soothe the sensitivity as well as get some dental cement from a local drug store.

People in the U.S. have died within days of neglecting an abscess. DO NOT procrastinate on this. here’s really nothing you can do other than getting to the dentist as soon as possible.
While seeing your gums bleed after you floss isn’t ‘normal’ per say, it can indicate signs of early gum disease or gingivitis. However, if the bleeding of your gums is excessive, recurring, and even leaves your gums aching – you’ve got some warning bells to pay attention to. These are some of the most common signs of gum disease. Especially with gum disease, untreated symptoms can reach the point of no return. Because gum disease occurs in stages, some stages will leave patients with the inability to restore their teeth back to their healthy state.
