Emergency dental care: Where to go

If you or a family member has a very painful toothache or an injury to your teeth or gums, get help as soon as possible.

For serious problems that occur after hours or on weekends, you may need to contact an after-hours dentist, see below.

Some hospitals can deal with dental emergencies, but this should be your last option. You will likely have to follow up with a dentist later.

The Ministry of Health also has some tips on how to get emergency dental care.
