Dental Care The Moment You Need It

Emergency Dental Treatment

Dental emergencies can occur at any time and without warning. Dr. Shields, your Ajax dentist, is prepared to provide emergency treatment for your broken tooth, tooth trauma, a sudden toothache, or other mouth pain.

Count on us to make every effort to treat your dental emergency the day it occurs. Call our Ajax dental office when you experience dental trauma, severe tooth or mouth pain, or significant oral swelling, and we will arrange to treat you as quickly as possible.


Quick relief for your mouth pain

Your mouth pain could be caused by a variety of issues. Get relief as soon as possible with in-office treatment, a prescription for pain, or a prescribed antibiotic. Common dental emergencies we see in our Ajax dental office include:

  • Toothache
  • Facial swelling
  • Broken tooth
  • Loose or lost fillings or crowns
  • Knocked out tooth

Tooth saving tip

Saving your tooth and helping eliminate your mouth pain is the goal of our emergency dental care. If you have had a tooth knocked out and have access to the tooth, place it in a cup of milk and bring it to our office as soon as possible, ideally within 30 minutes.

Contact your dentist in Ajax about your dental emergency or ask us about the necessary next steps you can take.
