Emergency Dental Care

 24 hours dental clinic near me

A dental emergency could be:

  • swelling of the face
  • trauma to the dentition
  • severe toothache that keeps you awake
  • tooth fracture, exposing the nerve
  • Knocked-out tooth due to trauma

If you do have a dental emergency please call us and we will try our best to accommodate you as soon as possible during working hours. The purpose of emergency dental treatment is to stop the pain or bleeding as soon as possible. It is quite likely you will need to return to have the root cause of your problem examined and resolved during business hours.

What Should I Do During A Dental Emergency?

We suggest you remain calm, contact us immediately, and consider the following recommendations to address immediate pain and discomfort:

  • If bleeding, place clean linen over the affected site and apply pressure
  • Take an over-the-counter analgesic to relieve pain or swelling
  • Gently hold an ice pack to your face over a swollen or uncomfortable area
  • For a broken tooth, collect the pieces, place them in a container, and bring them to the visit
  • For a dislodged tooth, rinse the tooth gently under lukewarm water (paying attention to preserve attached tissue) and carefully attempt to place the tooth in its original location in your mouth

For a dislodged tooth that will not slip back into its socket, protect the tooth in a sealed container filled with salt water or milk, and bring the contained tooth to your visit.

Should You Go To The Hospital?

Hospitals can manage a dental emergency until such time as your dentist is available to see you. The clinic or hospital would manage the bleeding, swelling or pain until such time as you can get an emergency dental appointment.
