Patients in Waterloo, ON who are in a situation where they need emergency dental care are encouraged to call the team of Bayley Dental. It is common for unexpected situations to occur. Having someone on your side for emergency care is essential in recovering from these concerns and in achieving better oral health.

What is emergency dental care?

When things go wrong with the teeth or soft tissues, it is important to have care within reach. Common emergency situations include:
  • A severe toothache
  • A knocked-out tooth
  • A broken/chipped tooth
  • A lost or broken restoration
  • Cuts in the soft tissues
When situations such as these arise, immediate help is needed to ensure no further damage occurs. A severe toothache can keep patients from being able to sleep due to strong pain. It can also keep a patient from going about their day-to-day life. Common treatments for toothaches are fillings or root canal therapy. In a case of a knocked-out tooth, reattachment needs to occur as soon as possible after the tooth has been knocked out. Patients are urged to keep the tooth moist and to call an emergency dental office immediately to increase the chance of being able to reattach the tooth. If this cannot happen, patients will need to speak to Dr. Doug Bayley about replacement options including dental implants, dental bridges, and dentures.

Patients will want to bring their dental insurance cards if they have coverage so that our front office team can process claims as soon as possible to determine the cost of treatment. Patients should be able to explain to the dentist what happened, when it occurred, and where pain and discomfort are. If there are any problems with a fever, fever levels and times are very important in determining if an infection is present. Patients who struggle with anxiety will also want to let our staff know, so we can provide proper anesthetics and sedation to get the patient comfortable.
