Dental emergencies

Dental emergencies

As with all health emergencies, it is important to treat dental emergencies as quickly as
possible. A number of dental problems can occur suddenly: breaking or losing a tooth,
severe pain, swelling, bleeding and so on. It’s a mistake to think these problems can
wait. As with any health issue, dental emergencies need to be resolved quickly. Otherwise,
an infection can worsen or the pain can become unbearable.
When to seek emergency dental care

You should contact us immediately if you experience any of the following: acute pain, a
deep cavity, bleeding, swelling or an accident. We will try to see you as quickly as
possible so we can find the source of the problem and above all, give you relief.

What to do after trauma or an accident

If a tooth has broken, fallen out or become loose from a severe impact, it’s crucial to act
fast. Call us immediately, and clean any wounds and apply a cold compress to the
sensitive area. If the tooth has broken or fallen out, put it in saliva without rinsing it.
Bring the tooth to your emergency appointment. If the tooth is loose, put it back in the
proper position. If you’ve lost a tooth, don’t wait before seeking care. Otherwise,
complications can arise: for instance, adjacent teeth may shift toward the empty space.

What to do if you have a toothache

Toothaches are no fun for anyone. Aside from the obvious pain, they indicate the
presence of a serious problem. That’s why it’s important to come see us quickly if you
feel a sharp pain. The most common causes of toothache include deep decay, tooth
abscess, gum disease and erupting wisdom teeth. If you’re experiencing intense pain,
make an appointment right away so that we can determine the exact cause. This can
help avoid complications and permanent damage.

What to do if my child’s baby tooth breaks

First, rinse your child’s mouth with lukewarm water and place the broken tooth in
saltwater (half a teaspoon of salt in a cup of water). Next, call us for an appointment to
assess the situation and check whether there are internal injuries.

What to do if a filling falls out

First, rinse your mouth with lukewarm water. Next, apply orthodontic wax or sugar-free
gum to the tooth if it is sensitive or painful. It’s important to contact us quickly to repair
the tooth and prevent bacterial infiltration.

If you have any questions or dental emergencies, please call us at 514-367-0300 to make an
appointment. If it’s an emergency, we will do our best to see you the same day or the
following day.
