HOW TO HANDLE A DENTAL EMERGENCY

 

If blood is gushing out and your mouth fills with blood or if you have difficulty with breathing, this may be a medical emergency. Please call 9-1-1 or go the nearest hospital.

If you have one or more of the following:

  • Toothache;

  • A chipped, cracked or broken tooth;

  • A knocked-out adult tooth or a knocked-out baby tooth;

  • A loose tooth;

  • Badly bitten cheek, lip or tongue;

  • Broken jaw;

  • Lost filling;

  • Tooth abscess;

  • Something stuck between teeth; and/or

  • Swollen gums or face;

you have a dental emergency.

 

Please call (905) 828-1120 immediately. If your call is outside our regular business hours, please call (647) 205-9365.

 

If we are unable to answer the phone, please leave a message including your name, phone number, reason for your call AND send an email to info@dunwindental.con or submit the web form on our website. One of our team members will get back to you as quickly as possible.

Knowing how to handle a dental emergency can make the difference between losing and saving your tooth or prevent further damage.

It's never a good time for a dental emergency. The good news is that you can prevent many dental emergencies by not using your teeth tools, not biting on hard items such as ice, not eating hard foods (hard candy, pop corn, shelled nuts etc.) very fast and wearing a mouthguard when playing sports.
