Frequently Asked Questions

Our experienced team is always ready to handle emergencies, and relieve our patients of any pain or sudden problems they may be experiencing. If you are experiencing a dental emergency, please give us a call and we will be glad to be of assistance.

How do I know if I have a dental emergency?

If you’re experiencing sudden pain, swelling, bleeding or pus excreting from your gums and teeth, then please call us to book an emergency appointment. Any loose, cracked or knocked out teeth also consist of a dental emergency.

What do I do if I have a dental emergency but the Des Cèdres Dental Center is closed?

In the event that our clinic is closed, and you have an emergency, be sure to leave us a message on our answering machine, so that we are aware of your situation and we can reach you as soon as possible. We recommend calling the Fairview Dental Center for any weekend emergencies at: (514) 694-8150.

What can I do to relieve pain or swelling?

Take pain medication, like Tylenol or Ibuprofen. Ibuprofen has additional anti-inflammatory properties to also reduce swelling. Avoid Aspirin because it contains ingredients that will thin your blood and thus exacerbate the situation. You can also use ice or heat to reduce pain and stimulate healing.

What can I do about a broken tooth?

Should you crack or break one of your teeth, try to keep as many of the pieces as you can in a clean, moist cloth. Call the Des Cèdres Dental Center to book an appointment. The sooner you come in for an appointment, the more effectively the dentist can repair your damaged tooth.

What do I do if one of my permanent teeth falls out?

If a permanent tooth has fallen out or been knocked out, first gently rinse the tooth in a lukewarm salt water to clean it. Do not handle the tooth by the root, as that with damage the tissues needed to reattach it. Place the tooth in saline solution or milk until you arrive at our clinic. If that is not an option, then keep the tooth between your cheek and jaw to keep it moist.

These were some of the most frequently asked questions patients have about dentistry and oral health issues. If you have any other questions or would like to schedule an appointment, we would love to hear from you.
