Emergency Dental Care

Artis Dental Centre Is Prepared for Dental Emergencies

Your mouth is very sensitive, and in some ways, delicate. Sudden injuries or infections could have a serious impact, not only on your oral health but on your overall health as well. Artis Dental Centre prioritizes your dental health, which is why we accommodate emergency appointments whenever possible.

If you encounter a dental emergency, contact us immediately. We will discuss your concern and help you determine what steps to take from there.

Symptoms of an Emergency

It’s important to recognize the potential symptoms of a dental emergency. If you experience any of the following symptoms or symptoms similar to the ones listed, you should seek immediate dental care.

  • Toothache
  • Missing tooth
  • Lost filling
  • Lost crown
  • Chipped or broken tooth

What to Do When…

You Lose a Tooth

If one of your permanent teeth falls out, there is a possibility that the tooth can be reinserted and salvaged. First, you’ll need to find the tooth and clean it off. Run it under clean water, very gently brushing away any dirt. Do not scrub. There may be delicate tissue stuck to the tooth, and it’s important that the tissue is not damaged.

Try to replace the tooth in its socket. If the tooth goes in and stays there, proceed to the dentist’s office. They will ensure the tooth is properly situated and look for any potential signs of infection. If you cannot slide the tooth back into its socket, place the tooth in a container of milk, or water if there is no milk available. Bring the tooth with you to the dentist, as they may be able to reinsert it.

You Break a Tooth

It’s possible that a chipped or broken tooth can be saved. Call your dentist immediately and explain the situation. If it is a smaller chip, they may choose to fill the tooth. Large chips or breakages may require a root canal or a crown to repair the tooth.

If the tooth breaks in half, try to find the broken portion of the tooth. Wash it off, and bring it with you to the dentist office. There’s a chance the dentist may be able to reattach it.
