There Are A Few Types Of Dental Emergencies You Need To Know About

We want to make sure you are safe, taken care of, but also understand when it's not an emergency after all.

1. Tooth Knocked Out

If a tooth has been knocked clean out of the mouth, it is essential to see a dentist immediately.  

When a tooth exits the mouth, tissues, nerves, and blood vessels become damaged.  If the tooth can be placed back into its socket within an hour, there is a chance the tissues will grow to support the tooth once again.

Here are some steps to take:

  • Call our office.
  • Pick up the tooth by the crown and rinse it under warm water.  DO NOT touch the root.
  • If possible, place it back into its socket – if not tuck it into the cheek pouch.
  • If the tooth cannot be placed in the mouth, put the tooth into a cup of milk, saliva, or water (as a last resort).  It is important to keep the tooth from drying out.
  • Get to our office, quickly and safely.  We will try to replace the tooth in its natural socket.  In some cases, the tooth will reattach, but if the inner mechanisms of the teeth are seriously damaged, root canal therapy will be necessary.

2. Other Traumatic Injury

If there is some kind of trauma that you experience and it involves your teeth, call our office immediately.

In the meantime, use a cold compress and over-the-counter medications to relieve pain.  Your dentist will reposition the tooth and add splints to stabilize it.  If the tooth fails to heal, root canal therapy might be required.

3. Uncontrolled Swelling

If you are experiencing a large amount of swelling in the mouth, please contact the office as soon as possible to help stop any further progression of the swelling (infection).  

4. Uncontrolled Bleeding

If you are experiencing any uncontrolled bleeding around an area that has recently had dental work completed, please contact the office immediately.  Apply pressure to the area with gauze to help control the bleeding until you can be seen by the dentist.

5. Uncontrolled Severe Pain

If you are experiencing uncontrolled severe dental pain that can not be controlled with pain medication, please contact the office so we can assess and help manage the pain as quickly as possible.

I have have been a patient of Montrose Dental Centre for over 10 years. On my last visit they did a fantastic job of bonding on my front tooth, making it so natural looking that you can't even tell that it has been repaired. I would recommend Montrose Dental to anybody who needs a great dentist.


Before visiting Sun Chiropractic, I was nervous going because I had a bad experience with a chiropractor a year ago. All I have to say is WOW. Kimberley Castle was amazing. She was so thorough and explained everything to me. I felt welcomed from the moment I walked it. I love the follow up exercises and was happy that Kimberley was able to really pinpoint my pain and is now helping me to get better!!!

We love everything about Sun Chiropractic. We have been monthly patients of Dr. Kim Castle, ever since I was pregnant with my now five year old. She saved me from a very painful pregnancy and helped my newborn with any tummy issues. I continue to take my two children faithfully for their monthly checkups (myself included.) Couldn't imagine life without Dr. Castle and all of the amazing staff over there!


I’ve been in two car accidents in the past month. Both times hit from behind. Before I even called MPI I called Dr. Baron and he had me scheduled for the same day. The office staff are caring and helpful. Dr. Baron is thorough in his assessment, and he never rushes through anything. I feel completely at ease in his care.


I've had numerous injuries in the past 10 yrs and the staff at Sun Chiropractic couldn't have been more courteous and caring.  Dr Minuk is the epitomy of what a professional chiropractor should be. If you're looking for a friendly, caring, and compassionate chiropractic office, I HIGHLY recommend Sun Chiropractic.


Dr. Moran is beyond excellent. She is very warm, kind and understanding. I am very nervous about going to the doctor and she makes the experience excellent for me. I hope she know how much I truly appreciate her.


Dr.Moran and her staff are AMAZING! I felt so comfortable with everyone in the office, everyone is soo kind and friendly and  Dr.Moran is very attentive,caring, and understanding with her patients.
