Emergency Dental Care in Ottawa
Some common dental emergency situations could include:
If left untreated, severe toothaches can cause intense pain, swelling, and discharge. For severe toothaches, there are a few things you can try to help remedy things on your own. Rinsing your mouth with warm water or flossing to remove any lodged food particles that may be the cause of your toothache could help resolve the issue. If you’ve tried home remedies and the pain persists or worsens, call on our emergency dental care services right away. Over-the-counter pain relief medications can alleviate pain in the meantime while you wait for your emergency dental appointment in Ottawa with Skyline Dental.
Loose or Lost Crowns & Fillings
If your dental filling or crown is loose or falls out, make sure to call us for a same-day emergency appointment. Consult with our dentists for a temporary solution before coming in for your treatment. Please bring the crown with you to your emergency dental appointment in Ottawa at Skyline Dental.
Infected or Abscessed Teeth
If left untreated or unnoticed, cavities can fester and can eventually become infected. If you’re experiencing intense pain, bad breath, swelling, and abnormal sensitivity, meet with your dentist ASAP. Until your emergency dental appointment, rinse with a mild salt water solution and take over-the-counter pain medications if you need help with the pain.
Knocked Out Tooth
If your tooth is ever knocked out, try retrieving the tooth immediately. Rinse the root of the tooth with water if it’s dirty by holding it by the crown. Be gentle with the root and do not scrub off any tissue fragments. If possible, try and put the tooth back in place (without forcing it) making sure it’s facing the right direction. If it’s not possible, store the tooth in milk until you book an emergency dental appointment in Ottawa with Skyline Dental.
