While waiting to see a dentist in Montréal for your emergency…
Here are a few tips that may help you. These tips are not a diagnosis and do not replace the advice of your dentist.
Do you have a toothache?
Call us and make an appointment so that together we can find the root of your pain. Get the over-the-counter pain medication that works best for you, but above all, don’t apply the tablets directly to the painful tooth. Hold an ice pack to your face on the painful area.
What to do when you have a broken or chipped tooth?
There is almost always a way to save a broken tooth. Call us and explain what happened. If the tooth is only slightly broken, we can restore it to its natural colour without anything showing. If the tooth is more severely compromised, you can rest assured that we will find a solution to restore your smile. The possibilities of modern dentistry sometimes allow us to perform small miracles!
What to do if you lose a tooth accidentally?
If you lose a permanent tooth due to an accident, we may be able to put it back in place, but it must be done quickly. If the tooth is re-implanted within 10 minutes, chances are it will take root again. After 2 hours, chances grow slim.
If the tooth appears clean, put it back into its socket. If there is a chance of the tooth being swallowed, place it in a container of cold milk.
What to do after seriously biting your tongue or lip?
Press a clean cloth on the bite to stop the bleeding. If there is swelling, apply a cold compress. If the bleeding continues, go to a hospital emergency room.
What to do if something gets stuck in your teeth?
Try to remove the object by flossing gently and carefully. If you are unable to dislodge the object, call us and we will see to it that you are free of this discomfort.
What to do after losing a filling (composite, amalgam, inlay, etc.)?
Temporarily protect the tooth by filling the recess with sugar-free gum (sweet gum will likely cause pain). The idea is to protect the sensitive part of your tooth from contact with food or temperature changes. The layer underneath the enamel of the tooth is called “dentin” and contains the nerve endings of the tooth. This is why we feel pain when something comes in contact with the dentin. Be sure to come in and see us as soon as possible. Keeping the tooth in this condition could lead to more severe problems.
