EMERGENCIES

Avulsed Teeth (Tooth Knocked Out)


  • If a tooth has come out of its socket, it is essential to visit us as soon as possible.
  • Call: 416 925–0154 to book an appointment immediately.
  • When a tooth exits the mouth, tissues, nerves, and blood vessels become damaged.
  • Typically, if the tooth can be placed back into its socket within an hour, there is a chance the tissues will grow to support the tooth once again.




Here Are Some Steps To Take


  • Call us at 416 925–0154
  • Pick up the tooth by the crown and rinse it under warm water.
  • DO NOT touch the root.
  • If possible, place it back into its socket. If not, tuck it into the cheek pouch.
  • If the tooth cannot be placed in the mouth, put the tooth into a cup of milk, saliva, or water as a last resort.
  • It is important to keep the tooth from drying out.
  • If possible, visit our dental office immediately at 474 College Street, Suite 103 Toronto, Ontario M6G 1A4
  • Our goal is to replace the tooth in its natural socket.
  • In some cases, the tooth will reattach, but if the inner mechanisms of the teeth are seriously damaged root canal therapy or tooth replacement may be necessary.




Swelling


  • Typically swelling in the mouth is caused by an infection.
  • Home Care: If the swelling is isolated to a small area within your mouth, we recommend that you try a salt water rinse first (1 teaspoon of salt per cup of water).
  • If you are experiencing an abnormal amount of facial swelling, we recommend that you call us immediately for treatment.




Loose Teeth (Due To An Accident)


  • If you have an accident and your tooth is mobile, please call us immediately at 416 925–0154.
  • While speaking with you our team will provide symptom management.




Cracked & Broken Teeth


  • The teeth are strong, but they are still prone to fractures.
  • Sometimes fractures are painless, but if the crack extends down into the root, it is likely that you will experience some discomfort.
  • If a tooth has been fractured or cracked, there is no alternative but to see us as quickly as possible.
