Causes for an Emergency Dentist visit
Some of the standard dental emergencies we see in Kelowna include:
A Knocked Out or Broken Tooth
Call Dr. Malfair for emergency dental care if you knock out a whole adult tooth. Keep the tooth in the mouth or in liquid like salt water or milk until you can get to the doctor. If you act quickly, there is a good possibility that we can re-implant and restore your natural tooth.
Chipped or Broken Tooth
If you have recently chipped or broken a tooth and it hurts or is a front tooth that makes you not want to smile, then please call us and we will see you to help fix it quickly. Broken or chipped teeth can cause pain and discomfort and should be treated quickly by a dental professional.
Toothache or Tooth Pain
A severe toothache may be an indicator of a deep cavity, infection in the tooth nerve or in the bone around a tooth. Schedule your toothache appointment with Dr. Malfair immediately. In the meantime, you can try to reduce your toothache with over-the-counter pain relievers. You can also try a cold compress placed on the outer cheek.
Abscess or Infection
A dental abscess or tooth infection is a common dental issue that can be treated easily at our Kelowna practice. If you think you have a tooth infection or a abscessed tooth, schedule an appointment today to get our expert’s opinion on what treatment is right for you.
Swelling or Bleeding
If you have uncontrolled bleeding or swelling in your mouth or gums for any reason, please let us know as soon as possible so that we can get you in quickly and figure out what is going on.
At Choose Your Smile we understand that your concern is critical and your time is valuable. We strive to offer same-day emergency dental care evaluations for both new patients as well our existing patients.
