When Do I Need a Calgary Emergency Dentist?

Dental emergencies can come in many different forms and you want to be sure you get the necessary treatment when one occurs. A speedy treatment can help preserve your injured or damaged teeth, help prevent further damage and preserve your smile. If you are experiencing any kind of severe dental pain or problems, chances are you need to see a Calgary emergency dentist. The following are some common dental emergencies and how you should respond if they occur to you:

  • Tooth Aches: Aching teeth or any kind of tooth pain can often be a sign of infection. You should be sure to thoroughly clean the area by rinsing your mouth with warm water and using floss to remove any food particles. Apply a cold compress to the outside of your mouth or cheek to ease pain and help with swelling. Be sure to see your dentist as soon as possible
  • Knocked-Out Tooth: If you can, retrieve the tooth and wash off the root using water. Do not scrub it or remove any tissue fragments. Attempt to put the tooth back in place, but do not force it. If you cannot place the tooth back in the socket, put the tooth in a small container of milk. Be sure to seek immediate attention from your dentist. Knocked out teeth have the best chance of being saved if the patient is seen by a dentist within an hour.
  • Chipped or Broken Tooth: If possible save any pieces of the tooth that you are able to. Rinse out your mouth with warm water and apply gauze to the area if it is bleeding. Use a cold compress to reduce pain and swelling, then see your dentist as soon as possible.
  • Lost Fillings or Crowns: A lost filling can lead to an infection if not treated soon after. Be sure to see your dentist as soon as possible. A lost crown will need to be reattached. Save the crown and bring it with you when you see an emergency dentist in Calgary.
  • Partially Dislodged Tooth: Be sure to see your dentist right away. You can relieve pain temporarily by using a cold compress or taking an over-the-counter pain reliever.
