Hummingbird Dental is a full-service dental clinic that provides emergency dentist Richmond Hill to patients across the Greater Toronto Area. At our dentist office, we care for patients experiencing regular dental emergencies, such as face swelling, injuries to the teeth/mouth and dental pain. Face swelling, in particular, is quite common. It is often caused by a tooth infection. In most cases, the swelling starts off as barely noticeable, escalates to mild discomfort and gradually builds up to painful swelling.
You can call us anytime with your emergency or come directly to our office. We have a triage area where we review all emergency cases upon arrival to determine what kind of treatment is necessary. When it comes to tooth infection and abscess, the first step is often to drain the abscess, reduce the swelling and manage the pain. The dentist will drain the abscess by puncturing the abscess or skillfully drilling an opening in the tooth to allow the pus to escape. In case there is any remaining infection after draining the abscess, the dentist will prescribe an antibiotic to be taken after the draining process. The dentist will also give painkillers to manage the pain after puncturing gum or drilling the tooth.
You can prevent dental abscess by practicing good oral hygiene. Sometimes the pain caused by dental abscess may be pulsating. If the pain subsides, it does not mean that the infection has gone away; you should visit a dentist as soon as possible.
