Dental Emergencies

At the Dr. Jean-Pierre Tabah Dental Clinic, located in Montreal’s Marché Central, we offer our patients an emergency dental service.

Your teeth are hurting and the pain is unbearable? One of your teeth has shifted or fallen out following a shock? These are examples of situations in which a visit to your dentist is necessary. Because we care about your health and well-being, we will welcome you to the dental clinic as soon as possible to relieve you of your pain and avoid complications.

Our team is trained to handle dental emergencies. Remember, your dentist is the only professional qualified to diagnose pain or abnormal symptoms in your teeth or mouth. One reason for the pain may be a cavity, but sometimes the source of the pain may be a more serious problem that could affect your overall health.

Broken tooth


If one of your or your child’s teeth has broken as a result of a trauma, there is no need to panic! This is a dental emergency that we usually treat at the clinic. The important thing is to act quickly and visit your dentist in Marché Central without delay in order to maximize the chances of repairing or repositioning the tooth.

The important thing is to visit your dentist as soon as possible following the incident, even if you do not feel any pain. This is because hidden damage could cause you harm if you do nothing. Your dentist is the only person who can determine the appropriate solution to repair your tooth.

Intense pain


Sometimes the pain in your mouth can become unbearable and a visit to your dentist is necessary. Such pain may be caused by advanced decay that has reached the dental pulp. You should not wait any longer before visiting your dentist. Indeed, the cavity is the entry point for bacteria to the dental pulp and if the pulp becomes infected, it can lead to the formation of a dental abscess, which is an advanced infection.

An abscessed tooth can spread to other areas of the body if left untreated, which can have serious consequences for your health. That’s why you should visit your dentist promptly if you feel pain in your teeth.

Knocked out tooth


When a tooth falls out or shifts in its socket, you must also react quickly. Pick up the tooth by the crown and avoid picking it up by the root, as damage to the root must be avoided at all costs. Go to your dentist as soon as possible to maximize your chances of getting the tooth back in your mouth. The faster you react, the greater the chances that your tooth will be replaced!

The team at Dr. Jean-Pierre Tabah’s dental clinic has the necessary qualifications to treat dental emergencies. They will be able to reassure you and advise you on the appropriate treatments.
