I Broke My Tooth; What Do I Do?
Teeth are strong, but they’re not invincible. Fractures, cracks, or breaks can happen at unexpected times. If you’ve cracked or broken your tooth, call our dental professionals to set up an emergency dental appointment as soon as possible. In the meantime, if you have a tooth fragment, you should rinse it off and save it. Our emergency dentists in Mississauga may be able to reattach the fragment to your tooth when you arrive. Next, rinse your mouth with lukewarm water and apply gauze afterward for ten minutes if bleeding occurs. Once your mouth is rinsed, place a cold, damp cloth on your cheek to minimize swelling or pain. You can also take over-the-counter pain relievers to minimize pain.

My Tooth was Knocked Out; Now What?
If a tooth has been knocked out of your mouth, call your emergency dentist in Mississauga immediately and pick up the lost tooth by the crown (don’t touch the root!). Rinse the tooth under warm water, and, if possible, place the tooth back in its socket or tucked inside your cheek. If you can’t keep the tooth safely in your mouth, then store it in a glass of milk or saliva to keep it moist until you get to the dentist (only use water as a last resort). It’s possible for a tooth to reattach itself if it can be placed back into its socket properly within an hour after losing it, so urgent attention is crucial.
If you have any additional questions or concerns about emergency dental services, please contact us directly.
