Your health and safety is a top priority for Dr. Christakos and his downtown Toronto dental staff. We offer emergency dental care for patients suffering from the following conditions:
- Sudden tooth pain
- Loose or cracked tooth
- Chipped front teeth
- Acute sensitivity
- Broken fillings
- Local swelling
- Facial swelling
- Pain at night
- Painful wisdom teeth
What You Can Do
Broken or knocked out teeth can sometimes be replaced if the patient arrives within 30 minutes of the incident. Try to place the tooth back in the socket or place it in a glass of milk before rushing to our office. Sometimes if a patient is suffering from sudden pain in their mouth, it can be because of a cracked tooth as a result of teeth grinding, wear and tear, and uneven chewing pressure. Alleviating pain is our priority but other procedures such as dental bonding, dental crowns, dental bridges, or dental implants can be expected to follow afterwards.
Before visiting Museum Dental, there are some home remedies for toothache relief:
- Rinse your mouth with warm salt water
- Apply a cold pack to the side of mouth where you feel the pain
- Take anti-inflammatory pills such as Ibuprofen
