Common Dental Emergencies in Hamilton

Fractured Tooth

Pay close attention to the size of the dental fracture and the severity of pain associated with it. This can help you decide if you need immediate attention from our emergency dental care team.


Swelling that appears suddenly could be a sign of infection. The area will feel warm and tender, look red, and you may see pus. Ice the area thoroughly and call us immediately. Infection is a serious health issue.

Abcessed Tooth

An abscess is usually recognized by swelling and redness. Typically, it means pus is trapped at the root of the tooth. We’ll examine the area and prescribe an antibiotic and/or painkiller if an infection is present before performing a therapy, such as a tooth extraction, root canal, or other dental procedure.

Extruded Tooth

When a tooth has been forced backward or forward in its socket, it has been extruded. Do not try to move the tooth back into position and call our team immediately.

Facial Fracture

This is a medical emergency that can affect the teeth and gums. Seek emergency dental care at a hospital and follow up with our dentist for additional treatment.

Knocked Out Tooth

If an entire tooth is knocked from its socket, there is a small window of time when we can re-implant the tooth, as long as the root is not damaged. After bleeding has been controlled, transport the tooth in a wet cloth or gently fit the tooth back into its socket and call us immediately!
