Emergency Dentistry

What is Emergency Dentistry?

An emergency dentist is an oral healthcare professional that treats patients that need immediate care. Some emergency dentists will see their patients within 24 hours to ensure their ongoing oral health, and to protect their teeth, jaw and gums.

List of Common Dental Emergencies

Knocked out tooth?

Make an emergency appointment to see your dentist. The sooner a knocked out tooth is re-implanted the more likely it is to fix itself back into the gum.

In the meantime:
1: Rinse the tooth in milk, holding it by the crown (avoiding the roots).
2: If possible, put the tooth back into the socket.
3: If you cannot re-implant the tooth, store it in a clean container in milk or your saliva.

Toothache?

In the meantime:
1: Get to your dentist as soon as possible.
2: Rinse the mouth regularly with water
3: Try to clean any debris from any obvious cavities
4: Use dental floss to remove any trapped particles of food.
5: If swelling is present, place a cold compress to the outside of the cheek.

Broken Tooth?

Any obvious damage to a tooth should be treated as soon as possible. Chips or fractures can affect the living tissue inside the tooth, causing problems in the future. Your dentist can prevent the damage from getting worse.
In the meantime:
1: Get to your dentist as soon as possible.
2: Apply a cold pack to the cheek or lips over the broken tooth.
3: Rinse your mouth well with warm water.

Root Canal Therapy

Root canal treatment is designed to eliminate bacteria from the infected root canal, prevent reinfection of the tooth and save the natural tooth. When one
undergoes a root canal, the inflamed or infected pulp is removed and the
inside of the tooth is carefully cleaned and disinfected, then filled and sealed.
