It is a serious dental problem such as oral-facial trauma, significant infection, prolonged bleeding or pain that cannot be managed by over the counter medications If so, contact your local dental office by phone. If you do not have a dentist or cannot reach your dentist, visit the website for the Royal College of Dental Surgeons for help to find a dental office that is providing emergency dental care at https://www.rcdso.org/en-ca/rcdso-members/2019-novel-coronavirus/covid-19-dental-clinics-offices-offering-emergency-services
