Some dental issues like a broken tooth, lost crown and bad toothache require immediate attention. At Triton Dental, you will find one of the best dental emergency services in Surrey, BC. We can address a number of emergencies in Surrey during regular business hours. You can contact us to request an appointment. We will do our best to respond to you promptly.
Before you decide that it is time to visit us, here are a few things that you can do on your own:
If there’s swelling, use a cold compress on the outside of the cheek. It will reduce pain and swelling.
If you have knocked a tooth, clean the infected area and try to put it back into the socket. Take a painkiller as well.
If you have chipped a tooth, put the chipped part in milk to keep it moist. Use a cold compress or take a painkiller if needed.
If you have lost the crown, use a sugar-free gum to cover the area. This will prevent your tooth from bacterial attack. Visit the dentist immediately.
In case of toothache, rinse with warm water and floss. A cold compress would also help with the pain.
