What is a Dental Emergency?

Unsure if you are experiencing a dental emergency? These are common dental emergencies that our dentists should treat right away. Call our dental clinic so we can schedule an appointment as soon as possible, or contact Dental Emergency Services, a 24-hour emergency dental clinic, at (416) 485-7121

Lost Fillings or Crowns

Try to identify and find any broken or lost fillings or crowns. Rinse and attempt to place it back on your tooth. Call our office as soon as possible to arrange an appointment to have it fixed. 

Knocked-Out Teeth

If you can find your knocked-out tooth, rinse, hold it by the crown - not the roots - and re-insert it into your tooth socket by gently biting down once it is in its place. Try to keep it moist by putting it in a glass of milk or holding it in your mouth until you arrive at our office. 

Your dentist may advise you to take over-the-counter pain medication. If you are bleeding, do not take aspirin. Apply a cold compress against your cheek where your tooth has been fractured. This will help reduce your pain and swelling.

Ensure you come to the office as soon as possible. Call ahead if you are able. The sooner you can be treated after a tooth has been knocked out, the better the chance your dentist will have of saving it. 

Chipped or Broken Teeth

Have a broken or chipped tooth? Try to find the missing tooth, put it in a clean container and bring it to your appointment. Your dentist can potentially reattach it. Whether the piece is found or not, ensure you phone our office right away to try and have it repaired.

Severe Swelling, Pain or Discomfort

Do you notice your face, mouth or neck areas have suddenly moderate to severe swelling or are you experiencing severe pain or discomfort in or around your mouth?

Call us as soon as possible and follow these steps to alleviate pain in the meantime:

  1. Apply a cold compress to your cheek, on the area where you are feeling pain. 
  2. Take an over-the-counter pain medication.
  3. Use salt water to flush the area that is in pain. This will help remove any debris that could be causing the toothache.

Our dentists should see the swelling or condition to diagnose the cause and plan treatment.
