What is not considered a dental emergency?

The following are not considered emergencies:

  • Chronic headaches
  • Metallic taste in the mouth
  • Lesions that won't heal

What should I do in a dental emergency?

After contacting our office, our staff will arrange an emergency appointment as soon as possible. In the meantime, there are ways you can alleviate your symptoms and prevent further damage.

  • Toothache: If you are experiencing severe tooth pain, avoid taking medications such as aspirin and stay away from varying temperatures, as this will only enhance your tooth sensitivity.
  • Loose tooth: Try to keep the tooth submerged in milk until your appointment.
  • Chipped or cracked tooth: Apply desensitising toothpaste and keep the tooth clean.
