Dental emergencies are something that most of us would like to avoid. Princeview Dental is an Etobicoke dental clinic able to deal with or refer out any emergency. We tell our patients that there are steps that they can take to prevent unwanted trips to the dentist.
Often, the cause of dental emergencies is tooth decay and abscesses caused by cavities. These can be prevented easily with a combination of a proper diet and practicing good oral hygiene. We recommend our patients brush two to three times a day and floss. Cutting down on sugar can also go a long way to helping you maintain good oral health and avoid visits for emergency dental services.
If left untreated, an abscess can perforate the oral cavity or a sinus, spreading the infection to the bone and skin tissue of the face, requiring surgery. If an abscess has progressed to the point where it requires hospitalization or emergency dental services, it can lead to serious health problems for the patient, as well as potentially costly medical and dental care. As a provider of emergency dental services in Etobicoke, we tell our patients that they can avoid dental emergencies by practicing good oral hygiene, making regular visits to the dentist and eating an improved diet, with plenty of vegetables and fruit.
Another way to prevent dental emergencies is regular checkups. And while you can visit an ER in case of an emergency, it takes a toll on the health care system and you will ultimately still have to visit a dentist’s office. Visit us for your checkups; our services include performing x-rays, enabling us to catch any potential problems before they become an issue.
But should something happen to your teeth despite your efforts to prevent dental emergencies, we provide emergency dental care in Etobicoke. And if the cost is a concern, don’t worry; Princeview Dental provides emergency dental services at an affordable rate, even to those who are uninsured!
