Tooth Loss First Aid

If your tooth has fallen out, handle your tooth by the crown and avoid touching the roots. Check for fractures or any missing parts, and gently rinse the tooth if there is any dirt. Don’t rub the tooth or scrape it to remove debris. If possible, try to reposition your tooth in its socket. Book an emergency dentist appointment and hold the tooth in place until you arrive. If you are unable to reposition your tooth in its socket, place it between your cheek and gum, in cold milk, or in your own saliva.

Where to go for a dental emergency?

If you live in Ottawa, you can call Sekhon Dentistry at (613) 722-8507 to book a dental emergency appointment. We offer emergency dental services no matter what your dental issue might be.

What do I do if my tooth falls out?

If a permanent or “adult” tooth falls out in Ottawa, call Sekhon Dentistry at (613) 722-8507 to book an emergency dental appointment. We are located in Westboro.

In the meantime, make sure your tooth is cleaned by gently rinsing it with water. Only hold the tooth by the part you chew food with, not the root. After, if you can, reposition the tooth back into your socket extremely gently without forcing it back in (make sure it’s placed facing the right direction). If you’re unable to place your tooth back in your mouth, put it in a clean plastic bag or container.

How do dentists fix a cracked tooth?

Depending on the severity of the crack in your tooth, your dentist could approach the repair in a few different ways. For minimal to moderate cracks, your dentist can give you a tooth crown or perform a dental bonding procedure to fill the crack in. For more severe cracked tooth scenarios, a root canal or tooth extraction may be necessary. It can be very difficult to know at home how extreme the crack is, so it’s always best to contact your dentist for an emergency dental appointment. At Sekhon Dentistry, we can help solve your emergency dental problem immediately. Call us at (613) 722-8507 today to live pain-free once again.

What is the best painkiller for a severe toothache?

The first thing you should do when experiencing extreme tooth pain is to contact dental professionals at a dental office like Sekhon Dentistry. In the meantime, there are a few different remedies you can try to help alleviate the pain you are experiencing:

  • Take over-the-counter pain relief medications like Ibuprofen (Advil), Aspirin, or Acetaminophen (Tylenol).
  • Apply a cold compress to your jaw. Do not ever put a warm or hot compress. If your toothache is caused by an infection, the heat may draw out the infection and cause more swelling.
  • Rinse your mouth with a saltwater solution. You can make this at home with one cup of water and 1 teaspoon of salt.
  • A hydrogen peroxide rinse can also be done to help with tooth pain. For this remedy, you can mix equal parts of hydrogen peroxide and water.
