Severe Toothache

If your tooth is causing you so much pain that it’s unbearable, it’s usually a sign of exposed nerves or a bacterial infection. Placing an ice pack on the affected area can help reduce the pain until we can perform an emergency root canal or - in the worst cases - a tooth extraction.

Badly Chipped or Cracked Tooth

Minor chips or cracks don’t require immediate care, but if there are sharp fragments or parts of the tooth which could cut your mouth, you should call us right away. Usually dental bonding or a veneer can restore the tooth, but more serious cases may call for a crown or implant.

Knocked Out Permanent Tooth

If you’ve had a tooth knocked out, it’s tremendously important to get it re-seated in its socket as quickly as possible. The sooner the tooth is put back in, the more likely it is that it’ll take root again. If your missing tooth can’t be naturally restored, a dental implant is the next best option.

Problems with Crowns or Fillings

Even if it doesn’t cause a lot of pain, losing a crown or filling has a major and immediate effect on daily activities like eating and speaking. Lost or damaged fillings are typically replaced with a new filling, but a crown that’s fallen off can usually be cleaned and reattached.

Heavy Bleeding

Any time there’s heavy and persistent blood flow in your mouth, it’s a sign that you need emergency treatment. Gauze inside your mouth and an ice pack on the outside can slow the bleeding and keep it manageable while you’re making your way to the clinic for treatment.
