What is Emergency Dental Care?
Our Sedation Dental Group understands that the very nature of an emergency is inconvenience. As Ottawa’s dedicated family dental healthcare providers, we’re here for you in these stressful times. Please call our Ottawa emergency dental office immediately to request an emergency care visit if you experience a severe toothache, knock out a tooth, badly damage your teeth, or find yourself in another precarious dental situation. We do our very best to see emergency cases immediately. If you experience intense bleeding or your emergency extends beyond dental care, please go to the nearest emergency room for assistance.
Some situations can be remedied or improved by following a few simple tips. While these suggestions do not solve all problems, they offer first-aid care until you can come to our Ottawa emergency dental clinic or your local emergency room.
Temporary Crown Falls Out
If your temporary falls out and you still have it, dry your natural tooth, apply a small dab of toothpaste to the temporary and place it back. You may also use dental wax or temporary adhesive, available at most pharmacies. Please call our office in Ottawa so that we can address the issue as soon as possible.
Knocked Out Tooth
Rinse the tooth gently under water to remove debris. Place the tooth into the socket it fell from and hold it in place until you get to our office. Otherwise, put the tooth into a baggie of mild milk solution and bring it to us so that we can determine whether reattachment is possible.
