man suffering from tooth pain emergency

Dental emergencies are not an uncommon occurrence.

While not every after-hours toothache is urgent, time is of the essence when dealing with a dental injury or accident that has knocked out a tooth (or teeth!) or otherwise caused damage to the teeth, gums, jaw, etc. 

If you have suffered a dental injury or severe pain in your teeth or gums, please call us at 613-236-5202 to book an appointment as soon as possible to prevent further damage

Here are some of the most common dental emergencies our downtown Ottawa emergency dentist can help you with.

Knocked-Out Tooth

A knocked-out tooth requires an emergency dentist to intervene in as short a period of time as possible to be able to save the natural tooth.

The longer you wait, the harder it will be to place the tooth back into its original position.

If you ever lose one of your teeth, call the downtown Ottawa emergency dentists at Pretoria Bridge Dental ASAP. Stay calm, get in touch and we will set up an emergency dental appointment for the earliest possible opportunity.

If you are already a patient of Pretoria Bridge Dental in Ottawa but cannot get here or can’t be seen in time, we’d be happy to refer you to an emergency dentist who’s close to where your dental injury has occurred.

Broken, Chipped or Cracked Tooth

You can simply crack your teeth on hard foods or candies, or even more slowly as tooth strength deteriorates over time. 

Most of these problems can be readily fixed with a simple tooth filling, but if a large part of a tooth breaks away, other, more complicated procedures could be needed.

A broken tooth isn’t always painful at first, but things can get far more complicated if the problem isn’t fixed as soon as possibleThat’s why you must contact your downtown Ottawa emergency dentist to prevent further complications regarding the hygiene and health of your teeth.

Abscessed Tooth

An abscess occurs when a tooth is infected, and this can be very painful

If you feel that one of your teeth is sensitive to hot and cold, followed by swelling and a bump on your gums, please call us at 613-236-5202 to see an emergency dentist in Ottawa right away.

Otherwise, the infection can spread to your jaw, damage the surrounding tissues, and even find its way to other parts of your body

If you’re experiencing an abscessed tooth, use salt water to rinse out your mouth to reduce pain and draw the pus out to the surface of your gums.
