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.

General Dentistry Testimonial

Hi, before I come to see Doctor Rina and her amazing staff, I was actually someone that had not gone to the dentist for a while because I was so stressed and very worried and anxious about it.
I had been recommended about her from other people and kept in the back of my mind. I finally made the call and from the first call the reception was absolutely amazing and made me feel at home. I let them know right away, I was really anxious. This is when I came in to see the doctor, Doctor Rena was amazing. She went through everything with me. I wouldn’t even smile when I walked in, she noticed I wouldn’t smile. I had had temporary caps on my front teeth for a really, really long time, so she took me through what her options were and it wasn’t good enough that it was just like here’s ABC. She wanted to make sure that we had gone too. A specialist to make sure mines a little bit more, more, issues. Having had root canal treatments on my front teeth and I went ahead, came back and again she sat down with me and gave me all of my options. What’s best for me? What can we do? What can we expect long term? Everyone here is so nice and warm they from the time I walked in for all my appointments they were all. How are you, Paula? How’s everything going? And you just feel like you’re part of a family and made me really feel at ease within a month and a half, She had me smiling like I am now. It was great, my friends, my family, my work people. They all notice exactly just how much more confident I am that I can smile. And honestly, it’s with her and because of the team here. And I found a place I can come back to and now really put my dental health as a priority. So, I definitely recommend her if there’s anything that you’ve left or you just need help on or you’re just looking for a place that you can come and feel comfortable. I definitely say, come to see Doctor Rina.
