Emergency Dental Care From Your Dentists in Toronto
Dental emergencies can happen to anyone, and when they do, it’s necessary to treat them as soon as possible. Our team is highly skilled in a vast array of dental disciplines, and we’d be happy to care for your needs.
What should I do if my tooth is broken, or I have a filling/crown that’s chipped or cracked?
Your first step should be to ensure that there aren’t pieces of the tooth or restoration materials in your mouth since they can become a choking hazard. Next, call us to arrange a time to be seen, and if you’re experiencing pain, take an over-the-counter medication to help control it.
What should I do if a tooth has come out of its socket?
Try to stay calm while you pick up the tooth by its crown (the part that sits above the gumline) and avoid touching the root. Briefly rinse it with cold running water if it’s dirty and try to replant it. Once in place, bite on a piece of fabric to hold it in position. If you’re unable to do this, put the tooth in a glass of milk or saline solution (avoid water!) until you see us. Adults can also put it in their mouth, keeping it between their molars and the inside of the cheek.
What should I do if my tooth is fractured?
If you can find the tooth fragment, bring it with you to our office as there’s potential for it to be bonded to your tooth. If you can’t locate the fragment, we’ll do our best to restore the area with composite resin, depending on the location of the fracture and how severe it is.
