For urgent or emergency care, we are prepared to see you for a variety of issues including a loose tooth, injury to the jaw, lost crown, abscess, soft tissue injury and even for broken or bent brace wires.
If you require immediate dental treatment to stop bleeding, alleviate pain, or prevent tooth loss, this is generally considered an emergency. Dental situations that are not considered dental emergencies might include a chipped tooth or a lost crown or filling – unless you’re experiencing severe pain.
Having a toothache is the most common dental emergency. It can be caused from a possible cavity or even teeth grinding. If you happen to have a toothache, rinse your mouth out with warm water and floss the area to see if any food or anything else might be stuck that’s causing irritation.
At East City Dental, we try to get you in for your emergency visit on the same day. Just call our office, and if we are unavailable, we will have instructions on our phone message of your next step.
Our office participates in the Peterborough City Dental on call system, which provides extended service until 8:oo pm seven days a week through co-operating local Dentists.
