  • Tooth pain

Frequently Asked Questions

What should I do if a tooth is knocked out?

If the tooth is clean, put it back into the socket. When you pick it up, your fingers should touch only the upper part of the tooth—try to stay away from the root of it. If the tooth has been dirtied, wash it in milk or saliva before putting it in the socket.

If you are unable to place the tooth in the socket, put it in a cup of milk or place it in plastic wrap until your appointment time.

What should I do if I have a severe toothache or dental pain?

If you experience severe toothache or dental pain, it could be a sign of an underlying dental issue or infection. First, rinse your mouth with warm water to clean the area. Gently floss around the affected tooth to remove any food particles that may be causing the pain. Avoid placing aspirin or any painkiller directly on the gum tissues as it can cause burns. Contact your dentist immediately to schedule an emergency appointment and discuss your symptoms for proper diagnosis and treatment.

What costs are involved in emergency visits?

The fees vary depending on which services you’ll require to address your dental emergency. We’ll go over all costs of treatment with you before proceeding.

How can I prevent a dental emergency?

Some simple precautions can help you avoid trauma to your mouth. For example, you should always wear a mouthguard during sports. Avoid chewing hard substances, such as ice, popcorn kernels or lollies, which may lead to a cracked tooth. Furthermore, you should never use your teeth to open packaging.
