Dental injuries such as a broken tooth can be very frightening. We’re here to help with emergency dental care. If you are a current patient located in Chatham-Kent, we can usually see you on the same day that you call about your emergency. If you suffer an emergency call us right away.
There are some things you can do at home to alleviate pain while you are waiting to come see us. If you lose or break a tooth you can increase the chances of the tooth being successfully re-implanted in your mouth by placing the tooth back in its socket. If this isn’t possible wrap the tooth in cool, wet paper towels or put it in a glass of milk and bring it with you.
If you break a crown, bridge, or filling, remove all the broken pieces from your mouth so they don’t become a choking hazard. The injured area may be very sensitive to hot or cold so be careful eating and drinking.
If you suffer a dental emergency, contact us right away to make an emergency appointment.
