Don't Put Off Care

You might be tempted to ignore that first twinge of dental pain in hopes that it will go away on its own. However, pain is frequently your body warning you that something is wrong and needs to be addressed. Ignoring that warning may end up costing you more in the long run, both financially and in terms of your oral health.

A simple and easily treated dental problem can become more complex and costly if not treated promptly. If left untreated, a small cavity can develop into an abscess.

Frequently Asked Questions About Emergency Dentistry

1. I have a chipped or broken tooth. What should I do?

If your tooth is broken, make sure you don’t brush it, and make an appointment to see your dentist as soon as possible. Your dentist will explain the best method for repairing the break, which could be one or a combination of fillings, crowns, or root canal treatments.

2. An object is caught between my teeth; how do I remove it?

If there’s something caught between your teeth, you can use the following ways to remove it.

  • Rinse your mouth.
  • Gently floss the debris away.
  • Carefully try a wooden toothpick.

3. If I have a toothache; what are my options for relief?

If you have mild to severe toothache, you can try the following to get rid of the pain.

  • Saltwater rinse
  • Hydrogen peroxide rinse
  • Peppermint tea bags
  • Cold compress or ice bags
  • Use a hot pack

4. What should you do for a knocked-out tooth?

If an adult tooth is knocked out, try to see a dentist right away. Do not attempt to re-insert a baby tooth; instead, take your child to the dentist right away. If you are unable to reposition an adult tooth, place it in milk and contact your regular dental practice.

5. What happens if I lose a filling?

If a filling is not replaced within a few days, the unprotected tooth may suffer damage. Bacteria and food particles can adhere to the empty space and cause decay. Furthermore, a missing filling can expose dentin, the second layer of the tooth beneath the hard outer enamel.

6. I have anxiety when dealing with dentists, can I be put to sleep?

Your dentist can sedate you during treatments. However, your dentist will first consider conscious sedation options. Conscious sedation is the use of medications to help you relax during a dental procedure. It is ideal for patients who are anxious, nervous or have difficulty sitting still during dental visits.

7. What is the best way to deal with noticeable swelling?

The best way to deal with swelling is to rinse your mouth with saltwater. Warm compresses are also used to relieve gum pain. Cold compresses are used to reduce gum swelling.

8. Will there be a dentist's open on Sunday near me?

Yes, Didsbury Smiles Dental will be open on Sundays for emergency dentistry.
