When you have a dental emergency, such as a broken tooth, cracked crown or even a knocked-out tooth, Square One Dental is able to help with emergency dentistry care at our Mississauga office.
Because our dental office is open seven days a week, there is almost always a dentist available to help treat your dental emergency.

Types of Dental Emergencies
Some dental emergencies, such as a knocked-out tooth, are obvious. However, other dental emergencies are conditions that may not seem urgent, but can quickly lead to serious problems without medical intervention. For example, a toothache can indicate an underlying dental infection, which can quickly turn into an abscess that spreads harmful bacteria to other parts of the body.
Other dental emergencies that warrant coming into Square One Dental’s Mississauga dental office as soon as possible include:
• Broken portions of braces, such as a bracket or band
• Broken or chipped teeth
• Injuries to the gums cause persistent bleeding
• Lost dental restoration, such as a crown or filling
• Object stuck between your teeth you cannot remove with dental floss
• Partially dislodged tooth
If you experience these issues or other discomfort related to your teeth and/or jaw, please consider Square One Dental as your source for emergency dental appointments in Mississauga.
How Can I Care for My Tooth Until I Get to Square One Dental?
If you have a knocked-out tooth, carefully preserving it can prevent tissue damage in the tooth. Keeping the tooth in your mouth can help keep the tissue in the correct pH. However, if the tooth will not stay in your mouth, you can put it in a cup of milk or water with a pinch of table salt until you can reach our Mississauga emergency dental office.
For bleeding and pain, applying a cold or warm compress to your face can help to minimize pain and swelling until you can seek dental care. A broken bracket or wire can be covered with orthodontic wax or a cotton ball to prevent damage to sensitive tissue on the inside of your mouth.
If you need emergency dental care, contact our team the minute you experience an emergency and our staff will be able to assist you.
