Common Dental Emergency Treatments

 Knocked Out or Dislodged Tooth

If your tooth has been totally or partially knocked out, seek an emergency dentist or medical attention immediately, either from our office or from the nearest emergency room. Whether the tooth has been totally or partially removed from its socket, it may be possible to save the natural tooth with quick action.

If possible, recover the missing tooth and replace it in the socket, biting down softly on a bit of gauze to hold it in place on your way to seek treatment. If that is impossible, it’s imperative to keep the tooth moist, either in the pocket of your cheek or in a glass of milk or water.

 Cracked or Broken Tooth

Depending on the level of damage a cracked or broken tooth may cause significant discomfort, including sharp pain when biting, sensitivity to temperature and air, and general aching. However, it does not require a trip to the nearest emergency dentist. Call our office as soon as possible to schedule an appointment. In the meantime, a cold compress and a dose of over-the-counter pain medication will help ease any pain from the damaged tooth.

 

 Tooth Pain

If you’re experiencing any type of tooth pain, it’s important for us to know about it. Mild pain, such as very dull aching or sensitivity to certain foods and temperatures, can generally wait for your next regularly scheduled appointment. If your pain is very sharp or intense, it may indicate a more severe problem. If this is the case, call our office to schedule an urgent dental emergency appointment.

What Is Your Emergency Dentist Looking For During a Dental Exam

  • Damaged, missing or decayed teeth
  • Early signs of cavities
  • Condition of your gums, such as periodontal pockets, inflammation or other signs of gum disease (which can lead to tooth and bone loss) to see how previous dental work such as root canals, fillings and crowns are holding up
  • Early signs of mouth or throat cancer, such as white lesions or blocked salivary glands
  • Other suspicious growths or cysts
  • Position of your teeth (e.g., spacing, bite)
  • Signs that you clench or grind your teeth (a treatable problem that can cause headache or sore jaw and can, if serious, lead to hearing loss and tooth loss)
  • Signs of bleeding or inflammation on your tongue and on the roof or floor of your mouth
  • The overall health and function of your temporomandibular joint (which joins the jaw to skull), checking for signs of disorders that can cause pain or tenderness
  • The general condition of the bones in your face, jaw and around your mouth

The dental exam can catch problems early—before you see or feel them—when they are much easier and less expensive to treat.

Your Surrey emergency dentist may explain what’s happening during the exam and give you a summary of the findings. If not, be sure to ask. As patient, you are a full partner in your oral health care.

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

Can I have a cleaning done at my first appointment?

Dr Kooner and Dr Cancar like to allow an hour for the first appointment. Each patient’s needs vary greatly and as such the time needed to create a treatment plan varies as well. For some patient’s it may not be ideal to start with a cleaning, so we prefer to book your cleaning after the exam is done.

How do I know if my problem is an emergency?

If in doubt, call our office and we can help you determine what would be the best course of treatment.  Generally, we allow for emergency patients to come in right away during office hours.  Although there may be a bit of a wait, this ensures that you will be seen as soon as possible.

How often should I get x-rays done?

X-rays are prescribed on a case-by-case basis. Dr Kooner and Dr Cancar prefer to review a patient’s dental history, and examine their mouth before deciding when and which x-rays are needed. Usually x-rays are prescribed once a year.

How often should I come in for a cleaning?

We recommend a dental exam and cleaning every 6 months. Some patients require more frequent cleanings. Improving your oral hygiene routine at home will aide in improving your oral health, and will require less time at your hygiene visits.

How do I get hold of a dentist after hours, in case of a dental emergency?

If you call our office after hours the voicemail will provide Dr Kooner’s and Dr Cancar’s personal phone numbers.  Please leave a message and the dentist will call you back as soon as possible.

Do you claim insurance directly or do I have to pay upfront?

We will claim insurance directly when we can.

Do you do treatment under general anesthetic?

We do not offer treatment under general anesthetic; however we do offer conscious oral sedation to help you feel more relaxed during your dental treatment.

  • I appreciate how understanding, accommodating, and patient each Staff member is when tending to my elderly mother, who suffers from Alzheimer's. She is now getting the dental care she needs after years of refusing to go to a dentist.

  • I had just moved and as always happens I had a dental emergency. I went online late in the evening requesting to be seen by a Dr. on Saturday.  I received a prompt email the very next morning followed by a phone call.  Gurvinder was awesome and answered all my questions.  1 day later a doctor was taking care of my dental emergency.  Late hours + weekend hours are perfect for me.  I will continue coming here!
