Dental Emergency Treatment in Port Credit
Serving Port Credit For Over 40 Years – Call Us 905-274-4151!
Dental pain from a toothache or a sudden trauma to the tooth can be very upsetting, but we are here to help as soon as possible. Some dental emergencies include a knocked-out tooth or infection and facial swelling. Other urgent treatment include a lost filling or crown, cracked or broken teeth.
Knocked-Out Tooth / Chipped Tooth
You need to see your dentist immediately if you ever knock out a tooth. The first hour is critical for saving the tooth. Once the knocked out tooth has been retrieved and there is no other head trauma to cause concern, you can rinse off the tooth without touching the root and place it back in the socket or tuck it into your cheek. Alternatively, milk is a good medium to place the tooth in on your way to Port Credit Smiles.
Toothache Or Infection
Call immediately if you have a painful toothache or an intra-oral or facial swelling from a tooth. Your Port Credit dentist is able to call in a prescription for an antibiotic and/or painkiller to your local pharmacy if you are unable to come in to the office for treatment.
Lost Filling Or Crown
A lost crown or filling can expose the tooth to pain from temperature changes or eating. Make an appointment at Port Credit Smiles as soon as possible to alleviate pain, prevent further decay or fracture, and reduce discomfort to the surrounding oral tissues such as the cheek or tongue.
Broken Or Cracked Tooth
A broken tooth can be very painful especially if it extends into the root. You should book an appointment with your Mississauga dentist as soon as possible if you have a broken tooth. The dentist will then determine the extent of the damage and recommend a course of treatment to alleviate pain from the tooth and preserve function.
