Emergency Dental

Emergency Dentist Scarborough

Dental emergencies can be extremely time-sensitive and often require a dentist rather than a doctor to correct; Hillsborough Dental proudly offers emergency dental services to GTA residents. Our location is conveniently located just off of the 401 and east of McCowan.

Types of dental emergencies we can help with:

Dental emergencies range in severity from a chipped tooth to split gums and completely missing teeth. No matter the severity, Hillsborough Dental clinic is committed to providing a level of care to each and every patient. We do our best to fit in emergency dental cases and correct the issue as early as we can.

Broken teeth

Regardless of how the tooth was chipped, it can be an absolute pain to deal with. It will interfere with chewing, smiling, and even your confidence. Broken teeth can be fixed with just one session or require multiple visits.

Abscess tooth

Abscess teeth can be life-threatening if not treated quickly. Abscess teeth are caused by bacteria and need to be corrected as soon as they are noticed. Pain can be felt in the mouth as well as other areas of the body. To correct an abscessed tooth, your dentist may be able to save the tooth with a root canal or suggest extraction.

Missing teeth

Teeth can take a lot of force to be knocked out, and it will be very painful. Visiting the dentist expeditiously is key to saving a lost tooth. While the nerves and blood vessels cannot be repaired, the bone may be able to reattach to the tooth.

Orthodontic emergency

Orthodontic emergencies vary quite greatly in severity. A broken bracket is a little different than a completely loose wire floating around the mouth. Orthodontic emergencies can come with pain, swelling, and irritation. Our dentists will do whatever they can to correct and minimize further mouth damage.

Broken dental bridges or dentures

Unfortunately, broken dentures and dental bridges do happen. When these instances occur, getting replacements as quickly as possible can save you from issues eating or problems smiling.

Our dentists are experienced and more than capable of fixing minor and major emergencies. Here are a few things to keep in mind when you are having a dental emergency:

  1. Call the clinic, call our team and let them know the situation, we can then give you an accurate assessment over the phone of if, when, and how we can help you.
  2. Get here as safely and as fast as you can.
  3. Bring any teeth-related debris with you; including lost teeth, chipped parts, broken wires or brackets and broken dental fixtures.
