Emergency Dentist Appointments In Toronto
Tooth pain can be excruciating and can interfere with every other aspect of your life. Sleeping, working, or concentrating on everyday tasks can seem to be impossible when dental problems are causing constant pain.
At North Shores Dental, our general dentists specialize in providing solutions to our dental patients and can often provide you with same-day emergency dentist appointment times to help you manage pain and ensure your return to oral health!
Teeth can be incredibly strong, but they can still chip, break or crack (fracture). Remember, treating a broken tooth at home is not an option; you need to see one of our Toronto dentists soon as possible!
Broken Dental Filling
As advanced as modern dentistry is, broken fillings can still happen. The most important thing to remember is not to delay seeing one of our skilled Toronto dentists to get treatment for a broken filling. Many teeth can start out with a small break and would only need a filling, but the longer treatment is delayed, the bigger the problem becomes.
Knocked Out Tooth
A knocked out tooth is a common dental problem. At North Shores Dental, we try to immediately take care of our patients who are experiencing this painful dental emergency. With a knocked out tooth, time is of the essence to save it and successfully re-implant it.
For adults and older children who are at no risk of accidentally swallowing the tooth, try to place the tooth back in its socket, or at least keep in the inside cheek to keep it moist with saliva. If your child is younger, place the knocked out tooth in a glass of saliva or milk until we can see you and attempt to re-implant it.
Badly infected teeth can jeopardize the health of their neighbors, including healthy teeth and gums. Fortunately, we can help! If treated immediately, these infections are often easy to recover from and can be prevented from causing lasting damage to your mouth. After treatment, our Toronto emergency dentists will likely prescribe an antibiotic to treat the dental infection and prevent complications.
Are you experiencing tooth pain? Does it hurt to chew or when air touches your tooth? The first step to take if you are suffering with persistent toothache (for longer than a day or two) is to call North Shores Dental to schedule an exam.
During your appointment, Drs. Reyes, Corrigan, Pham or Pahota will likely x-ray your tooth to help determine if a cavity, crack, abscess or other problem is causing your pain before discussing treatment options with you.
The first few moments after an oral accident are vital in determining if your recovery will go smoothly. Dental trauma due to an accident is common and can happen due to motor vehicle accidents, falls, sports injuries or physical altercations.
If you have experienced an oral accident resulting in a tooth being knocked loose, a filling being damaged or a tooth being fractured, call North Shores Dental immediately to schedule an emergency dentist appointment at our Toronto dental office.
