When Do I Need a Calgary Emergency Dentist

Sometimes, toothache can make you visit the hospital. Having broken teeth from a physical altercation or sports injury can be extremely painful. When you need to see a dentist fast, we’re here for you. Forest Lawn Dental Centre is your go-to emergency dentist in Calgary. 

In case of a dental emergency, it is best to have the affected area treated by a professional as soon as possible. A dentist can treat the affected area and prevent further damage. Here are some situations when you might need an emergency dentist:


A toothache is the sign of a dental infection. However, preventive actions such as thorough brushing and maintaining healthy oral habits might prevent toothache. Experts recommend cleaning the area by rinsing your mouth with warm water and using floss to remove any food particles. Apply a cold compress to reduce swelling and ease the pain.

Knocked Out Tooth

If possible, retrieve the tooth and wash off the root using water. Ensure you do not scrub off any tissue fragments from the broken tooth. Attempt to put the tooth back in, however, do not force it. Put the tooth in a small container of milk if you’re unable to place the tooth back in the socket. Seek immediate assistance because a knocked-out tooth has a considerable chance of being saved if the patient is seen by a dentist within an hour.

Chipped or Broken Tooth

Rinse out your mouth and apply gauze to the area if it is bleeding. If possible, save any pieces of the tooth that you are able to.

Lost Filings or Crowns

A lost filling is prone to infection if left untreated. A lost crown will need to be reattached. Save the crown when you come in to see us here.

Partially Dislodged Tooth

You can relieve pain by using a cold compress or taking an over-the-counter pain reliever.
