Alliston, ON practitioner explains dental emergencies
It can be difficult, in the midst of a stressful situation, to understand what truly constitutes a dental emergency. Here is a general guide:
- Medical emergency – If bones appear to be broken, the individual is having difficulty breathing, or there is uncontrolled blood loss, please call an ambulance or get to the nearest hospital emergency department as quickly as possible.
- Dental emergency – These are cases where a delay in treatment could result in unnecessary discomfort, cause loss of a tooth, or contribute to a serious health issue. Most commonly, this is from a dislodged tooth, one that is completely knocked out, or an abscess accompanied by acute pain and inflammation. Please call Dominion Street Dental at 705-435-4124. We do our best to see you promptly during business hours. Meanwhile, Dr. Vozna provides soothing advice and first-aid guidance.
- Urgent situation – If you have a severe toothache or break a tooth off below the gumline you are given the next available appointment. Dr. Vozna gets you out of discomfort and can often perform necessary procedures the same day.
- Speedy care – Please do not hesitate to schedule a regular appointment for a mild or recurring toothache, chipped or cracked tooth, dental restoration that breaks or comes off, dislodged orthodontic hardware, minor soft tissue injury, or mouth sore.
