At Richmond Blundell Dental Centre we understand that dental accidents and traumas don’t always occur during normal business hours. That is why we offer emergency care through after hour appointments. If we are out of the office, our dentists can be reached and a visit can be arranged on short notice.
Dental Accidents & Traumas
We provide priority emergency dental care services for dental traumas and severe tooth pain that are caused by automobile accidents, school accidents, at home accidents, slip and falls and more.
Sports Related Dental Injuries
Wearing athletic mouth guards significantly reduce the risk of injury and are the best way to prevent sports related dental injuries and traumas. However, accidents do happen and that is why we provide priority comprehensive emergency dental care services for sports related dental injuries. At Richmond Blundell Dental Centre we provide prompt response emergency dental care services for injuries related to sports like football, baseball, soccer, skateboarding, and other activities that put patients teeth at risk of damage.
What To Do If Your Tooth Is Knocked-out of Its Socket
It may be possible to re-implantable a knocked-out tooth if the tooth is properly handled and you receive emergency dental help right away. The best way to handle the knocked-out tooth is by holding the tooth by the crown. Gently rinse the tooth with water, if dirty, but do not scrub or remove any tissue. Once clean you may attempt to gently replace it into its socket, but do not force. If the tooth will not fit, if possible, put it in a cup of milk or water with a pinch of salt and go to near emergency centre right away.
