Do you have a toothache? Broken dentures?
Dental emergencies result from multiple causes. They can occur suddenly, such as toothaches, post-operatory complications or as a result of trauma. We understand that pain sometimes causes fear or stress and our team is there to reassure you and to listen without judgement. Do not wait, call us!
Broken tooth, cracked or fallen dental filling: If there is no pain, a regular appointment will be sufficient to repair the tooth.
Tooth displaced or avulsed due to trauma: Call immediately for an emergency appointment to allow us to reposition the tooth, while taking care to keep the avulsed tooth in water, if that is the case.
Toothache: When a cavity progresses, the pain intensifies. If it is not treated by a dentist, a tooth infection may occur and lead to dental abscess. We can sometimes also observe swelling in the face.
Broken prosthesis: Book an appointment, our denturologist can do a repair the same day if possible.

How to prevent a dental emergency?

Sharp pain may be a sign of infection. During your appointment, we will take an X-ray and will be able to tell you the nature of your pain. Sometimes in the case of infection, an antibiotic prescription is necessary before any treatment. This emergency visit helps determine the time needed for the required intervention depending on the situation.
How can I avoid a dental emergency?
Prevention is key. Proper daily oral hygiene, regular cleanings with the dental hygienist, and routine check-ups with the dentist are necessary to maintain good oral health. You should also avoid eating too many sticky, sugary or acidic foods. To avoid damage from playing sports, it is strongly recommended that you wear a mouth guard.
The Mathew Dental Clinic resumed its activities on June 1st.
The Ordre des dentistes du Québec and the Ministry of Health and Social Services have issued new standards in regards to asepsis and treatment protocol during this pandemic period.
These new guidelines will restrict the volume of patients that can be seen in a single day in order to, among other things, limit the number of patients in the clinic at the same time.
The current schedule for June and July will therefore have to be completely rescheduled to allow everyone to obtain an appointment within a time frame determined according to their level of priority. We will contact all patients who have not been seen since March 16th in order to schedule a new appointment for each of them.
We ask that you do not come to the clinic without an appointment.
Thank you all for your understanding.
