Home Remedies for Dental Emergencies

With dental offices being closed due to the COVID-19 pandemic, it may be difficult to receive immediate dental treatment, especially if it is not considered a dental emergency.

According to the Ontario Dental Association, a dental emergency is:

  • A severe injury to the teeth, mouth, and/or face
  • Severe infection, like an abscess or swelling
  • Bleeding that doesn't stop
  • Dental pain that cannot be managed with over-the-counter painkillers

If you are suffering, but not with the symptoms stated above, here are a few home remedies you can try to relieve discomfort.
