Dental Emergencies in Toronto
If you or someone you know is experiencing a dental emergency, don’t hesitate to call us now so that we can accommodate you as soon as possible.
If you notice a break in your tooth or feel a jagged edge with your tongue, immediately stop using that side of your mouth to chew. If there is a tooth fragment, try to save it inside a small bag with milk or contact solution. Brush the broken area clean to prevent further damage from food or plaque debris.
Knocked Out Tooth
If your tooth has been knocked out, attempt to rinse it and immediately place it back in the socket. If it won’t stay in the socket, store it in a small bag with milk or contact lens solution without touching the root area of the tooth. Immediately call our office to get in as soon as possible. The tooth must be replaced within the hour for the best chance of it taking root again.
If your filling has popped out, give us a call to see a dentist as soon as you can. In the meantime you can use a piece of sugar free gum over the missing filling as a temporary protective cover.
Crown Coming Off
If your crown comes off, make sure to keep it in a small bag and call our office to get it reattached. The longer you wait to get a crown fixed, the harder it will be to reattach and the greater the risk of damaging your tooth further. If the crown can’t be simply reattached, our team will discuss your options with you.
If you’re experiencing pain or swelling, use a cold pack against the hurting side of your face until you can see a dentist. Give us a call as soon as you can, as your pain could be a symptom of something more serious.
Don’t hesitate - call as right away if you’re experiencing a dental emergency.
