Emergency Dentistry

As a full-service team of dentists that provide a broad suite of treatments, including emergency dentistry, our dentists at Finch East Dental Care are here to provide the care you need when you need it. Rather than wonder whether you’re experiencing a dental emergency and need immediate treatment from our emergency dentist in Scarborough, ON, we invite you to call us now. We can triage your concern during your call and possibly provide phone instructions to minimize fall-out from your dental emergency.

Call Us for Your Dental Emergency

Every patient will indeed have a different perception of their dental emergency. For example, if you’ve lost a dental veneer and can wait until our next available appointment to have it treated, that’s not an emergency. However, if you’ve lost a dental veneer and have an important event coming up very soon, you may consider that more of an emergency.

Another example might be a painful or loose tooth versus a tooth that’s been knocked out from an impact-related event. It’s for these differences that we ask you to call us for triage instruction as the first line of your urgent dental care from Finch East Dental Care.

Please call us now to speak to a member of our dental care team at Finch East Dental Care for instruction or guidance on your emergency dentistry in Scarborough, ON.

FAQs- Emergency Dentistry

What Will A Dentist Do In An Emergency?

When you visit Finch East Dental Care during a dental emergency, our emergency dentists prioritize relieving the pain and addressing the underlying condition. They may perform tooth extractions, root canal treatments, or temporary restorations to alleviate discomfort or prevent further damage. We can handle dental emergencies like severe toothaches, abscesses, knocked-out teeth, and broken dental restorations. Contacting our dental clinic in Scarborough can prevent the issue from getting out of hand.

What Is Emergency Dental Treatment?

Emergency dental treatment at Finch East Dental Care involves addressing severe dental pain, trauma, or damage that requires immediate attention. Examples of emergency treatment include treating toothaches, managing dental abscesses, performing emergency tooth extractions, reattaching knocked-out teeth, repairing broken dental restorations, and addressing severe oral injuries. Emergency dental treatment aims to relieve pain, prevent further damage, and restore oral health in urgent situations that cannot wait for regular dental appointments.

Is Severe Toothache A Dental Emergency?

It is a dental emergency if you have a severe and persistent toothache that increases in intensity with time. If you have swelling, bleeding, or other accompanying symptoms, you must seek immediate dental care at Finch East Dental Care. It is crucial to seek prompt care to diagnose the underlying issue, alleviate pain, and prevent further complications. Rather than waiting for the situation to get over, our dentists highly recommend getting immediate help.

How Much Tooth Pain Is An Emergency?

Pain is highly subjective; excruciating pain for some might not be that intense for others. That said, if the tooth pain is severe and significantly impacts your daily activities, it should be considered an emergency. You should also consider accompanying symptoms like swelling, fever, or oral bleeding as an emergency. Our dentists advise contacting Finch East Dental Care so we can evaluate the severity and provide appropriate guidance or emergency treatment.

What Are The Most Common Dental Emergencies?

The most common emergency dental situations involve severe toothaches, dental abscesses or infections, and knocked-out, broken, or chipped teeth. Lost dental fillings or crowns, broken dentures, jaw fractures, and mouth soft tissue injuries can also result in dental emergencies. It is essential to seek prompt dental care in these situations to alleviate pain, prevent further damage, and ensure the best possible outcome for oral health.

I Have A Dental Emergency. What Should I Do?

At Finch East Dental Care, we advise you to take the following steps if you have a dental emergency:

  • Remain calm and assess the situation.
  • Call our dental office in Scarborough immediately if you are in severe pain or experiencing excessive bleeding.
  • If you knock your tooth out, gently rinse it with water and try to place it back into the socket. If that's impossible, keep it moist in milk or saliva until you reach us.
