What do we consider a dental emergency?
When you think of a dental emergency, you may think of cosmetic things like a chipped tooth, missing tooth, or painful situations like cracked molar preventing you from eating. At Regent Avenue Dental Centre our main goal is to relieve the pain associated with your dental emergency. Then, we work to restore the tooth or teeth to their original function and appearance.
Not sure if your oral health condition counts as a dental emergency, and requires immediate dental care? Here are a few of the most common dental emergencies you can have treated by the dentists at Regent Avenue Dental Centre in Winnipeg.
Fractured/damaged teeth or restorations
A tooth that is fractured, cracked, damaged or broken, doesn’t constitute an emergency. Restorations left untreated can lead to further complications. If swelling is associated with the broken filling or tooth, this may need immediate care.
Serious oral trauma to the teeth or the surrounding bone
If you have experienced major oral trauma, such as from a serious slip and fall, a car accident, or a hard hit in a contact sport, especially if you are in pain, emergency dental care is required. Contact your dentist as soon as possible to arrange a time for them to check for any potential hidden damage to your teeth or the surrounding bone.
Bacterial, fungal, viral infections
A serious viral infection, fungal infection or bacterial infection of the mouth can cause pain and discomfort and harm your teeth and your gums. See our team as soon as you can to get treatment.
Sudden and extended oral pain or discomfort
This could indicate an issue like a cavity, an infected tooth, or even gum disease. Whatever the case may be, it’s a good idea to get help to prevent further pain, discomfort and health complications.
