Dental Emergency?
How soon can you get here? 

Dental emergencies seem to happen at the worst of times! That’s why our team is trained to treat dental emergencies as quickly as possible.

We treat all different types of dental emergencies:

At our dental office, you can feel confident that you are always in good hands.  We are the only dental office in Brantford to offer an Emergency Text Message Hotline.  If you need advice or help after hours, just text us at 647-793-7268 and one of our doctors will personally respond. 

No answering service.  No robot responder.  Just real help from real people.

“My children look forward to every visit and always leave with a smile on their face. Last week my son had an accident at school, we went straight to the office without an appointment and we were looked after immediately. Thank you for the incredible service.”

Valentina Pasquini, Brantford

“My son had an after-hour’s dental/ortho emergency with a fastball to the mouth resulting in his two front teeth becoming displaced and his braces becoming askew. I called the office and their response was, “How soon can you get here?” After xrays, examination, and thorough explanations, we felt reassured that as always, we were in the best hands receiving the best care. Our follow up ortho appointment the next day was met with an organized and well researched plan of care for both short term and long term needs. All parents want what is best for their children, and Clarence Street Dental is exactly that – the best!”

Tasha Clement, Paris

“I had a toothache leading up to just 3 days before Christmas. I called many dental offices trying to get someone to see me. Clarence Street Dental was the only one willing to fit me in! Long story short they took care of my tooth that day and I was able to have a very Merry Christmas because of them.”

Marie Armstrong, Brantford

“I was seen on an emergency basis following a visit to the ER at BGH on Tuesday. Staff, hygienists, and the dentist were incredibly welcoming, polite, friendly, and kind. As I currently do not have benefits, they were highly considerate of my personal finances when deciding on a course of action, choosing the most cost effective procedures. Most of all, I was highly impressed that I was included in the formulation of a plan to address and resolve my situation, as opposed to simply being ‘informed’ what needed to happen. I felt valued and respected as a patient, and left with a very big smile. Thank you Clarence Street Dental!”

A First Aid Guide For Dental Emergencies

Cut or Bitten Mouth: Apply wrapped ice to bruised area. If bleeding, apply gentle pressure with clean gauze or cloth. If bleeding doesn’t stop after 10-15 minutes, or if heavy and can’t be controlled by pressure, go to the nearest emergency room or urgent care centre.

Permanent Tooth Knocked Out: Quickly locate the tooth and pick it up carefully, touching the crown (top) and not the root if possible. Rinse the tooth if needed, but don’t clean or handle it unnecessarily. If the tooth is whole (not broken or cracked), gently reinsert it in its socket. Hold the tooth in place by biting down on clean gauze or cloth. If you can’t reinsert it, transport it in a cup of milk or water. This helps keep the root alive until you can see us. Timeliness is crucial to help save the tooth!

Broken Tooth: Rinse dirt or debris from injured area with clean, warm water. Place a cold compress over injured area of face. Find and save any pieces of broken tooth that you can. See us immediately.

Toothache or Sore Gums: Thoroughly clean around sore area. Rinse by swishing warm salt water and/or try to dislodge trapped food or debris with dental floss. Don’t put aspirin directly on teeth or gums, but do take an over-the-counter pain reliever like ibuprofen to help ease the pain until you can see us. If your face is swollen, apply a cold compress or a bag of frozen peas.

Possible Broken Jaw: Try to keep the jaw from moving by using a towel, tie, or handkerchief. Get to the nearest emergency room or urgent care centre.

Bleeding After Baby Tooth Falls Out: Have the child bite down on clean, folded gauze or cloth over the bleeding area for 15 minutes. Repeat once if necessary, but call us if the bleeding continues.

Cold Sores / Canker Sores: Usually over-the-counter preparations bring relief until the sores heal. Because some serious diseases can begin as sores, let us know if the sores worsen and/or persist.​​
