An untreated loose tooth can quickly get infected and start affecting the healthy tissues surrounding it. If an injury has knocked your tooth off, keep the tooth in a cup of saline water, and visit our emergency dentist within an hour of tooth loss for best results. We will replant the displaced tooth and prescribe antibiotics to prevent infection.
Impacted wisdom teeth need extraction to prevent tooth decay and gum disease. Although painful wisdom teeth are not a dental emergency, it is best to visit our dentist at the earliest to avoid infection and complications. Wisdom tooth removal is performed under local anesthesia and takes under 20 minutes in a majority of cases.
A fall, weak cavity or biting down on a hard substance can cause a small or a large piece of tooth enamel to chip off. Depending on the severity of the problem, our dentist will reattach the piece that has broken off, bond the chipped tooth, apply a dental onlay on the surface of the molar, or attach a veneer. If you can salvage the broken off fragment, place it in a glass of saline water.
While not a dental emergency, losing a crown or filling can make the exposed area more sensitive to temperature, pressure and sweets. Rinse the area with warm salt water and use sugar free gum as a sealant as a temporary protection. You have the choice to wait until the morning after to have our dental specialist replace your filling or crown.
Brush your teeth gently with dental floss to remove food particles stuck between your teeth or in your gum. If you can see the particle in the mirror, use a tooth pick carefully to dislodge it (but avoid using a sharp object to probe your teeth or gum line). If the particle doesn’t come loose, visit our clinic for immediate professional dental treatment.
Tooth pain can point to decay, abscess, fracture, infected gums, a damaged filling, or underlying issues. Rinse with warm water or ice the sore area. If the pain is continual or severe, don’t wait to have it checked out by our emergency dentist in North York.

It is not unusual for a sudden onset of toothache or gum discomfort to signal a hidden medical condition. A quick diagnosis will help you get started on a treatment plan involving our dentist, your family physician and perhaps another medical specialist – which we may recommend, depending on the nature of the problem. While some dental issues can be resolved at home, others will require professional dentistry solutions. We offer highly specialized dental equipment and services to carry out complex dental work in the event of dental emergencies.
When a contact sport, illness or trauma causes teeth to break or chip, the goal of emergency dentistry is to preserve the aesthetics and function of the original teeth as much as possible. The sooner you seek treatment, the better the outcome. If you have reason to suspect that your mild tooth pain or swollen gums may be more serious than they appear, please don’t hesitate to call us during after hours for immediate assistance.
Other than a loose or broken tooth, or severe toothache, you may want to schedule a quick or emergency dental appointment if your:
Our emergency dentists in North York order X-rays or 3D imaging to correctly identify the root of your dental problems.

An urgent care centre may or may not have an emergency dentist on call. When this is the case, you may be prescribed painkillers or antibiotics, and asked to visit a dentist as soon as possible. Also, if you go to the ER or hospital the wait times are usually much longer than at emergency dental clinics. Ideally, you should request for emergency dental service by simply walking in to a clinic that explicitly states that they accept new patients with urgent dental needs like our clinic.
