Get the urgent dental services you need from Burlington emergency dentist
If you or a member of your family is having a dental emergency, do you know who to call? At Dentistry at La Salle, we are here to help! Our Burlington, ON dentists understand how stressful a dental emergency can be – it can truly stop your life in its tracks. We offer a wide array of emergency dental services and strive to see you on the same day so you can get back to your normal life again, pain-free and smiling.
Common types of dental emergencies
Dental issues can span a broad spectrum, from minor issues that are less urgent to major problems that cause intense pain or immediately threaten the health of one or more natural teeth. Common types of dental emergencies that we see at Dentistry at La Salle include:
- Teeth that have been knocked out
- Suddenly loose teeth
- Broken or fractured teeth
- Lost or loose dental restorations, such as a crown or bridge
- Intense tooth pain
- Facial swelling
- Traumatic injuries to the mouth
If you are unsure about whether your dental issue constitutes an emergency, don’t hesitate to call and we can help you determine when you need to come in. We will also provide you guidance on how to take care of your issue until we are able to see you. Once you arrive, we will first take care of your immediate dental crisis to get you out of pain. After your immediate oral health issue has become stable, we will take the time to discuss long-term solutions as needed to help fully restore the health and function of your smile, such as dental restorations or tooth replacement options.
It is important to seek emergency medical care rather than your dentist if you think you have broken a bone, have a large wound, or are experiencing uncontrolled bleeding.
