Common Dental Emergencies & How to Handle Them

While we always strive to provide the most prompt emergency dentistry services, taking fast action in the event of an oral injury can save your tooth and prevent any long-term damage.

Depending on the situation, here are several things you can do prior to visiting a dentist to protect your teeth in the case of a dental emergency.

Sudden Swelling

If you are experiencing sudden swelling in your gums or cheeks, this is most likely the result of an infection.

Any sudden swelling requires IMMEDIATE attention from a dentist.

What you can do: Use a cold compress against the affected area to minimize swelling.

Loose Tooth

If you are suffering from a loose tooth, it’s important to seek emergency dentistry services straight away.

What you can do: Often, biting down GENTLY can help keep your tooth in place until you visit the dentist.
Gum/Mouth Injuries

Gum or mouth injuries can include a cut, laceration or tear to your lips, gum, mouth, cheeks or tongue.

If the injury is severe, it’s crucial to seek emergency dentistry services immediately to protect the health of your mouth.

What you can do: While waiting to see the dentist, clean out your mouth with warm water or swish with salt water, if possible, to prevent infection. Apply pressure to the area with gauze or a moist teabag to help stop bleeding.

Lost Fillings/Crown

If you have a lost filling or crown, it’s important to contact your emergency dentist as soon as possible.

What you can do: With a lost filling, placing sugarless gum into the cavity can protect it until you receive treatment.

With a dental crown, use a gentle adhesive (such as toothpaste) to keep it in place until you seek emergency dentistry services.

Knocked Out Tooth

If your tooth, or a series of teeth, become knocked out, seeing an emergency dentist as soon as possible will increase the chances of saving that tooth.

What you can do: Hold the tooth by the crown, gently rinse it off and either place it back in the socket or in a container until you see the dentist.

 

Why It’s Important To Seek Emergency Dentistry Services ASAP

With emergency dental care, prompt treatment is very important. Waiting too long to see the dentist or neglecting your condition can lead to unsuccessful treatment and even more serious oral and health problems.

Some of the benefits of prompt emergency dental care include:

  • Quick resolution of pain
  • Improved appearance
  • Prevention of dental infection
  • If you have a damaged tooth, seeking immediate emergency dentistry services can greatly improve your chances of saving that tooth

Dr. Korol is very personable and the quality of her work is exceptional. I was the recipient of a number of composite veneers and was very pleased with the efficiency of the procedure and the end result.

Generous with her time, even on short term notice. I woke up with pain one morning and she was more than willing to give me her immediate professional advice. Would recommend to anyone in the greater Calgary area!

My Mouth Feels Fantastic!

I have been seeing Dr. Korol for the removal of my amalgam fillings. She is a wonderful dentist - very personable and professional, and I would highly recommend her. Having been terrified of dentists in the past, she is very calm and walks me through every step as she goes.
