What to do in a dental emergency

You may wonder what constitutes a dental emergency. By definition, a dental emergency may include:

  • Lacerations of the soft tissue
  • Tooth loss
  • A cracked, fractured, or broken tooth
  • A damaged dental restoration or filling
  • Tooth pain

When pain or injury occur, first remember to stay calm. Do not hesitate to contact the dentist. The sooner your emergency situation is addressed, the better the chance of a positive outcome. The dental team may give you instructions on how to care for your pain or problem until you get to the office.

Fixing the problem

Emergency dentists are regular dentists. They are qualified to treat your dental issues. If there is an emergency, your dental team strives to address the pain and dental problem. In the process, they work to stabilize the teeth and gums and to prevent additional damage from occurring. Once the patient is comfortable, the dental issue, function, and appearance can be addressed.

 Every patient and emergency situation is unique. With each problem, your emergency dentist assesses the teeth and gums to determine the best treatment or procedure. For example, patients suffering from tooth pain may have an infection or an abscessed tooth. Depending on the severity, the patient may need antibiotics to treat the infection, tooth extraction, or a root canal. For broken or lost teeth, dental restorations correct the function and appearance of the smile. No matter what the problem is, the goal is to ease your pain and maintain the health of your mouth. The dental team works with you to find a suitable solution.

If you experience a dental emergency, contact Dr. Rina Kotecha and the team at Dentistry on 10 in Mississauga, ON to schedule an appointment. Call 905-848-8440.
