Emergency Dental

Our team is available 7 days a week for when you need it most. We are aware that dental emergencies can, unfortunately, happen at any time, day or night, and often occur when you least expect it.

If you require an appointment due to a dental emergency, call our friendly reception staff so that one of our experienced dentists can provide you with the urgent assistance that you need.

Many of our patients who have required emergency dental care have done so because they were experiencing:

Dislodged tooth

Toothache/Pain

Broken tooth, filling, crown, dentures or bridge

Swelling that extended into the face, jaw or neck

Facial trauma that has resulted in damage to the teeth or jaw

 

What to do in an emergency?

When people think of emergencies, they often associate them with the medical field. Unlike medical emergencies, a dental emergency typically does not pose an immediate threat to the overall health of a person or their life. Even so, there is still a need for some urgency in getting dental emergencies seen within a reasonable timeframe to prevent complications and more extensive treatment being required.

Please go to the hospital immediately if you experience the following:
  • You have suffered trauma to your head, face, or neck that resulted in the loss of consciousness, memory loss, or bleeding from your ears or nose.
  • You have suffered from dizziness, severe head or earaches, or your teeth don’t fit together following a trauma.
  • You are experiencing mouth or facial swelling that extends down the neck, around the eye, or into the throat.

 

When should I call?

If you are experiencing a toothache, you need to see a dentist relatively quickly. Tooth pain might be the result of gum recession, a broken tooth, or it might be something more severe like a dental abscess or infection. Dental infections can have complications that arise, so it is vital to get this attended to as soon as you can.

Many of our patients wonder where they can find information on what to do if they encounter a dental emergency and are unable to get to a dental clinic right away. We’ve listed a few of the more common emergencies below. Still, if you do encounter an emergency appointment, our friendly reception staff will be able to walk you through what to do before your appointment.

Dislodged or Knocked Out Tooth

A relatively common mistake that most people make when a tooth is knocked out or becomes dislodged is the delayed placement of it back into the socket. If the tooth is clean and free of any debris, it can be immediately placed back into its socket.

To do this, you will need to:

  1. Handle the tooth only by the crown, where possible, avoid touching the root.
  2. Gently place the tooth back into the socket it came from. Please do not push it with force.

NOTE: If the tooth is clean, but you are unsure of how to place the tooth back, or you are unable to reposition it, you can place the tooth on the inside of your cheek until you can get to the dentist. This will keep the tooth hydrated with saliva and clean.

If the tooth is not clean, you can:

  • Place the tooth in a small clean container with some milk.
  • If you do not have any milk handy, place the tooth in a small clean container with some saliva.
  • Avoid touching the socket with your tongue to help prevent germs and bacteria from entering the site.

 Do not attempt to wash the tooth with water.

Toothache or Acute Pain

The pain from a toothache can be quite disruptive and hard to manage for a lot of people. Some aren’t able to get to the dental clinic right away, whether it be the middle of a workday, the middle of the night, or just life getting in the way.

We do recommend that any dental associated pain, be attended to as soon as possible, however here are a few handy tips to make the pain more manageable in the interim:

  • If you are able and not allergic to NSAIDs (e.g ibuprofen), you can take as directed in the packaging.
    Do not exceed the dosage. Follow ALL instructions and precautions labelled on the box! Do not take if you have an allergy to ibuprofen or other NSAID medications. 
  • You can try a cold compress to the outside of the face. Make sure you add a barrier, such as a towel, between your skin and the ice pack if you are applying an ice pack.

NOTE: Avoid applying heat to the area as this will encourage more blood flow to the area, which can further exacerbate any potential inflammation.
