Call Us Today for Emergency Tooth Extractions in Calgary

There are multiple reasons for an emergency tooth extraction. For instance, a crunchy snack or sudden mishap can break a tooth, causing radiating pain or even an infection. At Forest Lawn Dental Centre, we do everything we can to save your tooth, but removing the tooth is sometimes the wisest course of action in order to protect your oral health and overall well-being.

 

As tooth extraction is often performed on an emergency basis, Forest Lawn Dental Centre makes walk-in services available so that you can receive timely treatment. We encourage you to call us immediately with any dental emergency.

Ask Us About Tooth Extraction

Tell us your story first, explain the situation, and we will suggest the best future course of action. Often, when the tooth falls, the pain is extreme and mostly unavoidable. We will work on reducing your pain and suggesting the right replacement options for you.

 

We offer the option of a simple extraction for you. A simple extraction would be generally performed by general dentists. A local anesthesia is injected after which the dentist loosens the teeth and extracts it. There is also the option of a surgical extraction for situations that are complex in nature.

 

Many people don’t know what to do when faced with a tooth emergency. Talk to the dentists here to find out if tooth extraction is necessary or can be avoided. Sometimes, the infection in a decayed tooth can worsen quickly and painfully. In such situations, dentists recommend extraction in order to protect your oral health and overall well-being.

 

A broken or damaged tooth can be treated with a filling, crown or other dental treatments. There are several reasons that may call for a removal, though. Some of the situations are:

  • Extreme tooth damage from trauma or decay
  • Crowding or extra teeth that prevent the growth of other teeth
  • Periodontal or gum disease that loosens teeth
  • Infections that threaten the health of the jawbone
  • Preparation for full or partial dentures
  • When baby teeth don’t fall, forceful extraction is necessary
