You can prevent accidents with good habits


Dental emergencies such as tooth loss, broken teeth, and cuts to the mouth are unfortunately common accidents that occur when people exercise. It would, therefore, be a good habit to wear a mouthguard or a helmet when playing contact sports. In addition, when driving makes sure that everyone in your vehicle wears a seat belt.

Take some time to make sure your home is safe for your children and that all your dangerous closets have locks. All these small measures and precautions will help you prevent possible injuries.

Dental Emergency FAQ

Q.1. What Is Considered A Dental Emergency?

Severe pain, swelling, excessive bleeding, broken or displaced teeth, lost fillings, and trauma to facial bones and soft tissues are all dental emergencies. A dental emergency can cause significant pain and major discomfort, including difficulty eating and swallowing. Swelling in the mouth can also block the airway and compromise breathing. See a dentist immediately. If that’s not possible, call the emergency number of a nearby dentist.

Q.2. How To Manage Dental Pain?

A topical painkiller like Anbesol gel can sometimes help alleviate pain. Apply it to the gums around the tooth. Swelling can be addressed with an ice pack. You can also gargle with salt water. Add half a teaspoon of salt to warm water and gargle for 5-10 seconds. Do not swallow the water. Over-the-counter painkillers can provide temporary relief if the pain is unbearable.

Q.3. How To Deal With A Dental Emergency?

If you broke or cracked a tooth, find the pieces of the tooth and put them in milk or your saliva. If you can reach an emergency dentist within 30 minutes, chances are your tooth can be saved. Never handle a  tooth by its root. Always hold its crown. Address any swelling with an ice pack. If your filling is broken, brush the area and don’t put pressure on the tooth. Don’t attempt to reattach the broken filling or crown by yourself.

Q.4. How To Book An Emergency Dental Appointment In Ottawa?

If you do a quick Google search, you can find all the nearby dentists. Most dentists provide an emergency contact number on their website. You can also check the services tab of the dentist’s website to determine whether they provide emergency dental services or not. Parliament Hill Dental provides 24-hour dental emergency services. Our team of dentists can handle any kind of dental emergency quickly and efficiently, using advanced techniques and equipment. Call our Downtown Ottawa number to book an appointment or get help as to how to best manage your dental emergency.

Q.5. Should I Go To An ER In Case Of A Dental Emergency?

If you have a broken jaw, severe swelling, a breathing problem, or a head or neck injury, go to the ER immediately. But if the emergency is tooth-related, it is better to see a dentist. If you have no other option than to visit an ER in case of a dental emergency, then go ahead, but you may not find a dentist on staff in the emergency room. In this case, you’ll be provided with an antibiotic or a painkiller. Visiting an emergency dental service in Ottawa is a better choice.

Q.6. How To Avoid Dental Emergencies?

Dental emergencies can happen to anyone at any time. However, there are a few things that everyone can do to prevent them, to some extent at least. Wear a helmet and a mouth-guard if you participate in sports. Tell your children not to bite or hew on ice, hard candy, or other hard edibles that aren’t meant to be chewed. Many dental emergencies are the result of a longstanding dental condition (problem). If you are experiencing ongoing pain, don’t ignore it, even if it’s tolerable. Practice good dental hygiene. Go for regular check-ups, especially if you wear braces, dentures, or other kinds of appliances or restorations. Your dentist and hygienist will be able to notice signs of any problem and will help you address it before it becomes a dental emergency.
