Urgent dental matters should not be ignored or put off. We understand how busy your schedule is, but when you make time for the care that is essential, you boost the chances of maintaining strong and healthy teeth both now and in the future. At GoodDay Dental, we want you to be aware that toothaches require prompt care, as do chipped teeth.
A toothache can result from a chipped teeth, but we encourage you to avoid waiting for that to occur. It’s not uncommon for a chipped tooth to have no pain or symptoms associated with it when it first occurs. Our Richmond Hill emergency dentist will examine the tooth and take x-rays. Assuming that there is neither damage nor infection of the pulp inside the tooth, the solution will be to restore the tooth with a dental crown. Impressions are taken by our Richmond Hill emergency dentist and then put to use by the dental lab to craft your new crown. You will be fitted with a temporary one and then come back when your permanent one has been completed. Bear in mind that a chipped tooth has been weakened and continued use of it without a crown can result in a fracture, along with an increased chance of infection. Speaking of which, all toothaches are serious matters and if you hesitate to get timely attention for one, an infection is more likely to follow, for which you would either need root canal therapy or a tooth extraction. Coming in right away puts the odds in your favor that a filling or crown will be all you need to treat your toothache.
You should call our office immediately so that we can have you seen by our Richmond Hill emergency dentist at the earliest possible opportunity. With us, there is no unnecessary waiting.
