Dental Emergencies in South Ontario, CAWhile preventing damage through regular dental visits and practicing regular oral hygiene are key to protecting your smile, accidents can still happen. At Ontario River Arch Dental, Dr. Lan Dinh offers comprehensive emergency care 24 hours a day. By providing access to the care you need, precisely when you need it, our team is able to help you avoid potential health complications and maintain your long-term oral health.
Prioritizing Pain Relief
Often, dental emergencies are accompanied by some degree of discomfort or pain. At our Ontario family dental practice, our first priority is to provide patients with some form of pain relief. When you call our practice to schedule your emergency appointment, Dr. Dinh may provide some recommendations for at-home care until you can make it into our office. Some suggestions for at-home pain relief include:
- Over the counter pain medication (Tylenol, Advil)
- Cold Compress over the affected area
- Rinsing with salt water mixture
- Placing gauze over any bleeding areas
During the exam, our emergency dentist will determine the cause of discomfort and create a more comprehensive treatment plan for relieving the pain until the emergency has been addressed.
Identifying the Cause of Dental Emergencies
Not all dental emergencies are obvious. Many dental emergencies are symptoms of a larger, more serious oral health problem. At Ontario River Arch Dental, emergency exams are designed to comprehensively evaluate all parts of your smile. By using advanced technology like digital X-Rays and intraoral imaging, our team is able to identify the cause of your dental emergency, its impact on the rest of your smile, and create a multi-faceted treatment solution that ensure improved dental function and health.
Restoring Your Smile after a Dental Emergency
Treating the cause of your dental emergency is just one part of restoring your smile to its former health, function, and aesthetics. Once we’ve addressed your oral health problem, our team begins creating a long-term strategy for restoring damaged teeth and preventing recurrent issues from occurring. Depending on your needs, your unique restorative treatment plan may include a combination of composite fillings, crowns, bridges, and/or dental implants. During this process of care, we are always considering the aesthetic impact of your treatment and strive to ensure your smile looks, feels, and functions as naturally as possible.
