Emergency Dental Treatment

Urgent Dental Care in Leamington and Windsor-Essex County

Do you have a toothache or a dental injury? Dental problems are never convenient or timely; however, they are highly time sensitive and need urgent dental care. Beachstone Dental is committed to our patients’ dental health no matter what time of day or night. If your tooth is hurting or you need dental treatment urgently, get in touch with us immediately! We will make every effort to see you as promptly as possible.

There are many reasons to seek emergency dental care such as severe oral pain, chipped or fractured teeth, a dental abscess, impacted teeth, loose or broken fillings, and more. They can even be traumatic, especially for children, if there is bleeding and/or debilitating pain. These dental issues should be treated as soon as possible.

We also treat emergencies that are not necessarily painful or urgent but are a concern nonetheless, such as crowns that have been dislodged or broken dentures that leave embarrassing gaps in one’s smile.

We know dental emergencies can come about unexpectedly and in a number of ways so we are prepared to give you the care you need and when you need it.

What is a dental emergency?

A dental emergency is a potentially life-threatening condition that requires immediate treatment.

There are several cases where you should contact our office as soon as possible to avoid long-term damage to your teeth. These cases can include:

  • Trauma to the mouth and face
  • Teeth being knocked out of the gums
  • Broken teeth caused by an accident or injury
  • Cracked teeth causing severe pain
  • Unexplained and severe dental pain that can’t be managed
    by over-the-counter medications such as Tylenol or Advil
  • Severe infection, such as an abscess and inflammation
  • Bleeding or pus present in the gums

Please don’t delay in contacting our office if you experience any of these symptoms. We want to provide our patients with the best possible chance of saving their teeth if they have been in an accident or have damaged their teeth due to an accident or injury.

Please remember that emergency dental care is generally focused on pain alleviation at your first appointment. Thereafter, follow-up appointments are usually needed to treat the root issue.

The root cause of a toothache or dental injury helps determine the appropriate treatment. To get a better idea, our dentist, Dr. Prasad, will do an examination of your mouth, teeth, gums, jaw and tongue. Digital X-rays may need to be taken at your appointment. Based on his findings, possible treatment options may include extraction and antibiotics. If an infected nerve is the problem, a root canal may be necessary.

Pus and swelling can be a sign of a serious infection. This abscess can lead to tooth decay and even the loss of your tooth. Taking over-the-counter pain medication is not enough to treat pain and eliminate an infection – you may need an antibiotic, which can be prescribed by our dentist.

The longer you wait, the harder it will be to treat the potential infection or restore the tooth that is damaged. If you are not sure if your concerns are considered a dental emergency, please get in touch with us and we will be happy to assist you.
