Dental Emergencies in Orangeville
Common Dental Emergencies
The following conditions are dental emergencies, and should be treated as soon as possible.
- Lost Fillings or Crowns
If you have a lost or broken crown or filling, try to locate it, and if possible, rinse it off and place it back on the tooth.
Call our office right away to let us know you need an appointment.
- Broken or Chipped Teeth
If you have a broken or chipped tooth, try to locate the missing piece if you can, because your dentist may be able to reattach it. Apply a cold compress on the outside of your face to reduce swelling.
Whether you can find it or not, call our office as soon as possible to get it fixed.
- Knocked Out Teeth
If you have a knocked out tooth, try to find the tooth if you can. Pick up the tooth by the crown or top taking care to not touch the root and carefully rinse it. Re-insert it in the socket (be sure it is free of debris first). Bite down on the tooth gently but firmly.
If you are unable to replace the tooth in the socket, keep it moist by holding it in your mouth, or placing it in a glass of milk, until you can get to our office.
Call our office as soon as possible. The sooner you get here after knocking out your tooth, the more likely it is that your dentist will be able to save it.
- Severe Swelling
If you are experiencing severe swelling in your mouth, face or neck, and if the swelling causes difficulty swallowing or breathing, call our office as soon as possible.
We will help determine what is causing the swelling and the best way to treat it.
