Dental emergencies such as toothaches or orofacial pain is unpredictable and often unbearable. Some symptoms of tooth ache include sharp and constant tooth pain. In severe cases, fever and headache can be experienced. Before visiting Bloor Dufferin Dental, there are some home remedies for toothache relief:

  • Rinse your mouth with warm salt water
  • Apply a cold pack to the side of mouth where you feel the pain
  • Take anti-inflammatory pills such as Ibuprofen

Orofacial pain is generally any pain felt in the mouth, jaw, and face. It is a very common problem and most people experience this due to dental problems such as toothache. Another common cause is due to Temporomandibular Joint Dysfunction (TMD), which affects the mastication (chewing) muscles. The temporomandibular joint is the joint located where the jawbone meets the skull. Here are some signs and symptoms for TMD:

  • Pain in the muscles of mastication. Pain is usually dull or aching and poorly localized.
  • Limited range of mandibular movement and difficulty in chewing and talking.
  • Clicking, popping, or grating noises coming from the joint during mandibular movements.

Our Toronto dental team will try our best to address dental emergencies on the same day or at the next available appointment. Some of the other dental emergencies that we treat are: sudden tooth pain, facial swelling, sensitivity, chipped/cracked teeth, and more! New patients are always welcome at our Bloor Dufferin Dental Centre!

How to reduce the chance of a dental emergency:

The best way to reduce the chances of a dental emergency is to be proactive and be careful when engaging in activities that pose a high risk to your teeth and/or gums. For example, if you are involved in sports, getting a mouth guard is essential. Also, be careful when eating hard foods that can cause cracked teeth.

Getting regular checkups at our Bloor dental clinic is also an effective way of preventing dental emergencies. Our trained Toronto dentists will check for signs of decay or infection, two factors that can significantly compromise your oral health and lead to dental emergencies.

In the case of a dental emergency, please contact our Bloor Dufferin Dental Office in Toronto immediately.
