Many patients in Pickering, ON think about visiting the dentist every six months for their cleaning and evaluation. However, there are times between these routine appointments when patients may need dental solutions. Emergency dental services is just one of many services provided by our team of professionals at Esquire Dental Centres.
What is a dental emergency?
Drs. Ashraf, Mark, and Amir Awadalla are dentists at Esquire Dental Centres who have been faced with many dental situations over the years. Every dental visit is different. When patients are experiencing a condition or problem with the smile that needs immediate attention, they need to work with a dentist who offers emergency dental services. Dental emergencies are times when patients need to see a dentist as soon as possible to bring the smile back to health or address an injury. Here are a few examples of dental emergencies that may be addressed in our practice:
- A knocked-out tooth
- A tooth that has been chipped or broken
- A severe toothache that cannot be controlled with over-the-counter pain medications
- A growth or cyst on the soft tissues of the mouth
- A lost or broken restoration such as a bridge, dental crown, or veneer
- A restoration that needs adjustments for comfort such as a full or partial denture
- A cut or laceration of the soft tissues of the mouth including the cheeks, gums, or tongue
Who do I call for help?
As soon as a dental emergency arises, patients can contact Esquire Dental Centres for assistance. Our team of professionals can be reached at 905 250-1605, and our on-call staff during the day and after hours can provide solutions. Sometimes, we are able to get patients into our practice the same day for an emergency appointment, while other times we can provide assistance on the phone such as the prescription of medications to control pain. We walk our patient through what to do before they even arrive at the office, and give them an idea as to what they can expect when they arrive.
What is done for emergencies?
Each situation is different, but there are common procedures that our patients may experience when they visit for care. This includes reattachment of lost teeth, composite resin bonding for broken or chipped teeth, and sometimes, even root canal therapy for infection and inflammation of the teeth. During the initial evaluation, our team will decide on the appropriate treatment for the patient’s specific problem.
