Emergency Care

WHAT TO DO IN CASE OF A DENTAL EMERGENCY?

The best thing to do is to schedule an appointment with your dentist. Most cases are not that urgent and you can wait for a scheduled appointment. Always let your dentist know what the problem is so they know when to book you in. Take the following precautions:

  • If your face swells up it could be a sign of an infection and it’s important to schedule an appointment right away. Stay upright and don’t lie flat, even during sleep. Drink fluids.
  • If you knock out a tooth pick it up by the crown, not the root, to prevent damaging  the tissue that helps with reimplantation.
  • If you chip a tooth take a picture of it and email it to your dentist to know what kind of procedure you will need. Sensitivity is common and it goes away within a few days.
  • If a tooth hurts avoid chewing with it and make an appointment within the week.

OTHER  SIGNS OF A DENTAL EMERGENCY:

  • Non stop bleeding
  • Severe damage to a tooth
  • Intense, persistent tooth pain
  • Painful swelling that doesn’t get better
  • Loose or knocked out tooth
  • Injured jaw
