Toothache: What to do in a dental emergency

Dental emergencies occur when you feel intense pain or discomfort in your mouth that requires immediate medical attention. This may include a toothache, wisdom tooth pain, or trauma to the mouth.

It’s crucial to understand that severe dental pain is not normal and requires immediate attention. Failure to treat a dental emergency can lead to more serious complications and potentially endanger your health! At Carrefour Dentaire Dentavie, we’re here to help you with your dental emergency, offering fast, effective care to relieve your pain and treat the problem at its source.

Common Dental Problems Requiring Dental Emergencies

Here are some common dental problems that may require emergency care

A toothache can be caused by a variety of problems, including tooth decay, infection or a broken tooth.

Wisdom teeth can cause pain when they start to grow in. If the pain becomes unbearable, it is important to consult a dentist.

Trauma to the mouth can cause injuries to teeth and gums. If you’ve suffered oral trauma, it’s important to see a dentist immediately.

Toothache and Other Dental Emergencies: Your Action Guide


If you suffer from toothache due to decay or infection, make an appointment with Carrefour Dentaire Dentavie without delay. In the meantime, avoid sweet or hard foods to avoid aggravating the pain. Toothpaste for sensitive teeth can help relieve pain.

Broken tooth

If you or your child suffers from a broken front tooth or an avulsed tooth (a tooth that has been completely dislodged), it's important to keep the piece of tooth if possible and contact us immediately for treatment. The first few hours following dental trauma can be extremely critical for the final prognosis of the tooth.

Tooth and gum injuries

For injuries to teeth or gums, rinse your mouth with lukewarm water and apply a cold compress. If the wound is bleeding, apply gentle pressure with gauze or a clean cloth. See a dentist urgently.

What to do if a tooth breaks or falls out?

Immediate steps to take while waiting for an appointment


Find the tooth and pick it up by the crown (the white part). Avoid touching the root. Try to replace it immediately in the jaw.


If the tooth is dirty, rinse it gently in milk, saline or saliva and replant it or return it to its original position in the jaw.


It's important to encourage the patient, tutor, teacher or other person to replant the tooth as soon as possible.


Once the tooth has been returned to its original position in the jaw, the patient must bite down on gauze, a handkerchief or a towel to hold it in place.


If replantation at the scene of the accident is not possible, place the tooth as soon as possible in a transport medium (milk, saliva, saline solution) that is immediately available at the scene of the emergency. This must be done quickly to avoid dehydration of the root surface, which begins to occur within minutes. **Avoid rinsing or placing in drinking water!

Emergency and Preventive Care

Advice from the Dentist

“Even if a tooth extraction is considered a relatively simple procedure, it is a surgical act and it is therefore normal to anticipate certain post-operative effects.”
