Emergency Dentistry in Ajax, Ontario

A dental emergency can be scary and tough to deal with, which is why we strive to make it as easy as possible. We’ll arrange to see you in our offices as soon as we can and do our best to accommodate you on the same day you call us. Whether you require urgent care for yourself or someone in your family, please call our offices as soon as it’s safe to do so to set up an emergency dental appointment.

What Is Considered a Dental Emergency?

Dental emergencies usually come on suddenly, without warnings, such as a dislodged tooth, impact to the jaw, or other trauma resulting in injury to the mouth. In other cases, the emergency may evolve slowly, such as an untreated cavity that progresses into unbearable tooth pain. In any scenario, if you are suffering from severe tooth pain or an injury involving your teeth, call our offices to set up an emergency appointment.

What Do I Do in a Dental Emergency?

As in any emergency scenario, try to stay calm. If you’ve injured your teeth or jaw, attend to any bleeding or swelling first, then call our offices to set up an emergency appointment. If you have a tooth that is partially dislodged, keep it in place as best you can, and clean the area gently with warm water.

If your tooth has been completely dislodged or knocked out, try to recover it. If possible, tuck the loose tooth inside your cheek until your appointment (if on the same day) or store it submerged in saliva or milk to maintain moisture. In some cases, a tooth can be attached to the nerves if attended to quickly and the damage is not extensive.
