Emergency Dentistry in Brampton at Simrat Dentistry
Contact Us Immediately if You are Experiencing a Dental Emergency In Brampton
Dental emergencies often require immediate care. The team at Simrat Dentistry encourages you to visit our office for emergency dental services in Brampton as soon as possible.
The following are considered dental emergencies, and our advice as how to handle them:
Get in touch with your dentist as soon as possible and explain your symptoms. A toothache could be an indication of a more serious affliction such as an infection within the tooth or multiple teeth.
It may be necessary to take an over-the-counter medication for the pain. You can also hold a cold compress to your face covering the origin of the soreness. Refrain from applying heat as it may worsen the situation and possibly increase the intensity of the pain.
Chipped or Broken Tooth
Very often a chipped or fractured tooth can be salvaged. Contact your dentist as soon as possible following the damage and ask to be seen as soon as possible.
Bonding a simple composite resin filling to the tooth may be all that is required to restore it to its near original state. If your tooth has suffered more serious damage, a root canal and/or crown may be the appropriate treatment to save the tooth.
Knocked Out Tooth
Should you tooth be knocked out for whatever reason, call your dentist immediately – it’s vital to act as quickly as possible.
If you have recovered the tooth after it has been knocked out and it looks clean, try to place the tooth back in its socket and get to your dentist’s office as soon as possible. If you are unable to place the tooth back in the socket, or there is a chance the tooth may be swallowed, place it in a container of cold milk or water immediately and bring it with you to your dentist.
If a tooth is put back in its original position within ten minutes of being knocked out, there is a chance the tooth will take root again. The odds that the tooth will re-root are significantly diminished after two or more hours, which is why it’s imperative to see a dentist as soon as possible following the occurrence of the damage.
Badly Bitten Lip or Tongue
Should you cause bleeding from having harshly bitten down on your lip or tongue, use a clean cloth to apply pressure to the area that is bleeding. If swelling results, place a cold compress on the afflicted area.
Should the bleeding or swelling worsen over a long period of time, it may be wise to visit the Emergency Room at the nearest hospital to ensure your mouth hasn’t incurred more serious injury.
Something Stuck Between Teeth
Should an object become lodged between any of your teeth, try to gently remove the object using dental floss. Refrain from poking between teeth with a knife, a pin or any sharp object so as to avoid potentially cutting your gums or marring the enamel of your teeth.
In the event you are unable to dislodge the object, see your dentist.
If you a filling falls out, contact your dentist and ask to be seen as soon as possible. You want to avoid possibly damaging the tooth further and avoid leaving the exposed tooth and tissues susceptible to infection for longer than necessary.
