It is a Saturday afternoon and your child is hit in the face during sports practice, this causes damage to the teeth and bleeding. Do you know which dentist in Whitby Ontario to see if you have a dental emergency?
Which office has emergency hours?
Emergency dental covers traumas from injuries, abscesses, and a crown or filling falling out. Especially if there is bleeding that will not stop, these types of dental issues are emergencies and should be taken care of as soon as possible.
The first thing is to remain calm. Make yourself an emergency dental kit; it should contain emergency contact number for the dentist or clinic, gauze, a vial with a lid, and some filtered water.
If a tooth has been knocked out, pick it up by the crown area, rinse it, and put it in a container that is sealable with some cool milk. Take it to the dentist with you where he or she may be able to put it back in the socket. You can also try to put it back in the socket after you have rinsed your mouth thoroughly and then go to the dentist right away. With children the tooth most often re-attaches in the socket, adults do not have as good of a result doing this but sometimes it will also work for adults.
If there is bleeding, use a cool damp gauze and gently put pressure on it until you see the emergency dentist in Whitby. Dr. Yao- Brooklin Dental Care does emergency dentistry. You should always care the emergency contact number with you in your car or purse and also keep it at home by the telephone so that when you need emergency dental care it is only a phone call away.
