We offer a full range of dental emergency services in Calgary. If you have a toothache or dental emergency call our office ASAP at (403) 201-7999 and we will fit you in for a short notice appointment.
- Knocked out Tooth
Knocked out teeth–or “avulsed” teeth–are a common injury, especially among children and athletes. They are a genuine dental emergency; if your tooth is knocked out, call us immediately. If it is after-hours, go to your nearest hospital emergency room for treatment.
A knocked out tooth may be saved if quick action is taken: if possible, replace the tooth into its socket and bite down on a gauze pad to hold it in place. If replacing the tooth is not possible, it is important to keep the tooth moist. Store the tooth in your mouth, between your cheek and gum, or in a glass of milk until you can reach help.
- Lost Filling / Crown
A lost filling or crown requires prompt attention, but is not cause for alarm. Fillings or crowns may be lost for a variety of reasons; often the tooth under or around the filling or crown has begun to decay, wearing away at the bond between them. The loss of the filling or crown will often cause pain, as the exposed tooth may be extremely sensitive. Though not an emergency, if you have lost a filling or crown, you should call us immediately to schedule an appointment to repair the damage.Book Now
- Cracked / Broken Tooth
Trauma–including biting down on a hard object, falling, etc.–may cause teeth to crack or break. If you have injured one of your teeth, you may experience mild to extreme sensitivity to pressure, temperature, and air. Over-the-counter pain medication and a cold compress may help to reduce pain and swelling until you can get to the dentist.
Cracked or broken teeth are a common dental emergency. While there are many ways to fix them, you should call us immediately to schedule an appointment if one of your teeth has been damaged.Book Now
- Dislodged / Loose Tooth
Receiving a blow or other trauma to the mouth may cause a tooth to become loose or partially dislodged. Depending on how loose the tooth has become and how much damage has been done to the root, root canal therapy may be required to save the natural tooth. If the nerve and connective tissue are still fairly intact, we will be able to repair the tooth with relatively little work.
As with all dental emergencies, if you have partially dislodged a tooth, please call our office immediately to schedule an appointment.Book Now
- Other Tooth Pain
Tooth pain comes in a variety of forms: sensitivity to hot and cold, sharp pain when biting or chewing, severe pain and pressure, or dull, constant aching. There are a variety of causes and solutions depending on the type and severity of pain. Mild pain, such as temperature sensitivity or dull aching, is likely not an emergency, but should be brought up at your soonest scheduled checkup. Sharp or intense pain may signal a more serious problem; if you are experiencing this, call us immediately to schedule an examination.Book Now
