Unexpected dental emergencies can occur at any time. You may fall and chip a tooth, experience a sudden, shooting pain, or even lose a crown with little warning.
At our family-friendly practice at Barrie Smile Centre, we offer urgent dental care in our emergency dental clinic for patients of all ages. Whatever happens, we are here to help. Our dental clinic is fully equipped to handle your emergency dental care needs, including various sedation options for anxious patients.
We work with each of our patients individually to put your mind at ease, offer assurance, and provide top-quality care as we implement the most effective and pain-relieving emergency dental treatments.
Falls and facial injuries commonly cause chipped, cracked, or even broken teeth. If this has happened to you, our same-day dentists are here to help - we will first ensure that there is no damage to the surrounding area, and your dentist may prescribe an antibiotic to prevent infection.
Repairing a chipped, cracked, or broken tooth can involve filling or bonding, dental veneers, implants, or a cap/crown. We will suggest the best treatment for you depending on the severity of your injury.
If we deem that your injuries also require additional medical attention, we can also help facilitate that as well. Since a large majority of dental emergencies are due to high-impact injuries, it’s important to rule out possible structural damage to the face or skull.
Barrie Smile Centre offers urgent care for jaw pain and severe toothaches. We will use X-ray imaging and oral examinations to determine the root cause and provide fast solutions. You may require an extraction, need an emergent root canal, or need emergency wisdom tooth removal.
Whatever the case may be, our staff is always on stand-by to offer the most effective solutions. We will also provide comprehensive pain management to ensure that you are as comfortable as possible. We will clearly explain the proposed treatment plan to make sure you understand all of the steps completely.
Losing crowns or fillings requires urgent dental care to prevent infection. Our staff can offer emergency treatment that prevents the loss of a damaged or decaying tooth. We can either fit you for a replacement crown or reapply your old one if it is still viable. Repairing missing fillings as soon as possible is important to prevent infection and tooth decay.
Our on-demand dental services can perform emergency fillings and replacements for crowns same day. If you require additional treatment, we can preserve your tooth and make arrangements for follow-up care.
It’s not uncommon for food or even foreign objects to get stuck between teeth. Sometimes, floss is not effective enough to dislodge it, so you will need a dentist’s help. If you have anything stuck between your teeth that you cannot remove, let one of our emergency dentists help.
We can remove anything stuck between teeth while sanitizing the area, treating any cuts to the gums, and providing preventative treatment to avoid infection.
It’s important to note that food left stuck between your teeth can lead to pain and subsequent infection. For that reason, always reach out for help if you can’t remove it on your own.
Tooth infections can stem from open cuts, gum disease, tooth decay, and more. If you need urgent care for a tooth infection, we can provide treatment and pain relief options. You may require urgent care for tooth abscesses as well, which often form when there is an infection present.
Treating the cause of the infection, relieving pain, and possibly prescribing antibiotics are the most common forms of treatment.
A knocked-out tooth is a common cause for a trip to an emergency dental centre. If you can, rinse the tooth with lukewarm water and place it back into your mouth. With clean hands, hold it in place until you can reach us for emergency dental care.
If you cannot put the tooth back in place, put it in a glass of milk and seek treatment immediately. Try to avoid touching the root, as this can lead to root contamination.
A dentist can place a splint in your mouth that will hold the tooth in place until the root can reattach to the bone.
Oral injuries are often better left to the care of a dentist than in the emergency room. From cuts to ulcers, we can quickly perform a full emergency exam and offer suggestions. In some cases, you may require sutures and antibiotics.
If you have sustained an injury to your gums, cheeks or lips and require dental care, reaching out to our team can provide you with fast, effective service. This can prevent unnecessary wait times in an ER and provide you with specialized dental treatment.
You can avoid dental emergencies with a good oral hygiene plan, and by practicing personal safety. Regular checkups with your dentist and routine treatment can prevent tooth infection and decay.
Personal safety includes wearing mouth guards when practicing sports and avoiding activities that have a high risk of facial injury.
Be mindful of any changes to your mouth, including your teeth, gums, and interior cheeks. If you experience pain or have concerns about your oral health, always seek treatment as soon as possible.
For same-day emergency dental care, as well as routine family-friendly dental services, contact us at Barrie Smile Centre. We are always available to provide you and your loved ones with compassionate, professional dental care.

Very clean, professional and helpful. 2 other dentists previously tried to fix my composite veneer and both times it look awful and/or was the wrong colour. One trip here and everything was fixed!
Very friendly, helpful staff. Makes you feel welcome as soon as you enter. I needed a tooth removed and got in the same day I called. When I arrived I didn’t have to wait. I have numerous problem with my teeth and they came up with a solution. Thank you all so much.
Just got home from the Smile Centre and I'm thrilled with my results. Had Zoom whitening, and it was better than I expected. The attendant took the time to explain everything super thoroughly. She warned I may have sensitivity but so far so good. I wish I did it ages ago.
The first thing I noticed upon entering the building was the beautiful design plan and lovely staff. I was greeted at the door and made comfortable throughout my entire experience. Everything was explained to me in detail and the staff always made sure I fully understood. This is an amazing office and I would 10/10 recommend it!!
