Emergency Dental Care

If you have experienced a dental injury or have a dental emergency, you should seek help as soon as possible. Call (905) 832-5000 for immediate assistance.

Whether it’s a minor broken tooth, chipping of the enamel or a deeper fracture involving both the enamel and the dentin of a tooth, it’s important to seek dental help promptly. A serious fracture can lead to tooth infection and abscess not to mention chronic and severe discomfort.

Another important fact to make note of is that the success of recovering a tooth that has been knocked out, is directly related to the amount of time the tooth has been out of its socket.

If you are concerned about a recent dental injury or wish to prevent injury to your teeth, consult with a dentist and/or consider the following:

  • Being fitted with dental braces to align protruding front teeth
  • Wearing a mouthguard while participating in sport or other activity where dental injury may occur
  • Using a face mask (if appropriate for the sport or activity)
Loose or Lost Fillings

Loose or Lost Fillings?

Try this:
Place a small wad of sugar-free gum in the open cavity until you get to the dentist. Do not chew the gum. Also, it's important that the gum you use is sugar-free; as any other kind could cause more pain.

broken or disloged teeth

Broken or Partially Dislodged Teeth?

Recover as much of the broken tooth and gently rinse the injured area. Hold clean gauze over the injured tooth to stop any bleeding. For swelling or discomfort, apply a cold compress outside of your mouth. Seek dental treatment immediately.

Dislodged Crown

Dislodged Crown?

Seek immediate dental treatment. Place the dislodged crown in a small plastic bag and bring it with you to your dentist. Try dabbing a little clove oil on the tooth to ease any pain or discomfort. Clove oil is available in the dental isle of most pharmacies.
