Dental Emergencies

Dental emergencies are both painful and terrifying. It is possible for trauma, grinding, eating hard foods, etc. to lead to fractured teeth. 

At this stage, treatment is always required to alleviate the pain and to ensure your teeth have the best chances of survival.

Call us immediately if you experience:


Chipped or broken teeth

Lost filling or abscessed tooth

Sensitivity to heat and cold

Emergency issue in teeth or jaw region

Most dental problems escalate quickly. Do not wait until you have a dental emergency. Please call us at (604) 261-1943 or visit us directly. We accept walk-in patients.

Here are some tips for common dental emergencies:

  • Keep it moist at all times
  • If you can, try placing the tooth back in the socket without touching the root
  • If that’s not possible, place it in between your cheek and gums, in milk, or use a tooth preservation product that has the CDA Seal of Acceptance.
  • Get to Kerrisdale Dental Boutique for emergency care right away.
  • Immediately rinse the mouth with warm water to clean the area
  • Put cold compresses on the face to keep any swelling down.
  • If you bite your tongue or lip, clean the area gently with water and apply a cold compress.
  • Rinse the mouth with warm water to clean it out
  • Gently use dental floss to remove any food caught between the teeth
  • Do not put aspirin on the aching tooth or gum tissues.
  • For objects stuck in the mouth, try to gently remove with floss but do not try to remove it with sharp or pointed instruments.
