Dental Emergency Services

An emergency rarely occurs at a convenient time. If you are in an accident, break a tooth, or develop a toothache, you may experience severe pain when most dentists are out of their clinics. Sometimes, that pain can’t wait until the next day—you need treatment ASAP.

Our Edmonton dentists are equipped to handle a range of tooth and gum issues, from cracked teeth to root canals. Whenever you need to book an emergency appointment, we are here for you.

If you are dealing with a dental issue, we always recommend that you call the dentist sooner than later. Doing so can prevent a minor issue from snowballing into a major one. Untreated dental problems can lead to pain, difficulty eating, and higher treatment costs. When in doubt, call the dentist.

You may be wondering what distinguishes a dental emergency from a regular tooth issue. If you’re experiencing pain or discomfort that interferes with your daily life, don’t delay—call for emergency dental services today!

Emergency Services

We believe that people in Edmonton should always have access to dental services. That’s why we offer an extensive line of treatments at our office, which is open 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. Some of the services provided at our dental clinic include:

Extractions

Not all teeth can be saved; when a decayed or damaged tooth is causing you extreme discomfort, sometimes the best option is to remove it altogether. Pain can result from a sudden injury or infection. To treat it, we offer emergency dental services for tooth extractions.

Before the tooth is extracted, local anaesthesia will be administered to completely numb the mouth and alleviate pain.

Root Canals

A root canal may be required to save an injured tooth. But if you need one, you can’t always wait until the next day.

An emergency dentist can recover a tooth via root canal therapy. Not only will this procedure alleviate pain, but it can save a tooth that may have otherwise been lost.

Broken or Lost Fillings

Have you ever bitten down on hard food and cracked a filling? This can leave your tooth vulnerable to infections and further decay. It also makes your teeth sensitive to hot and cold temperatures. We can replace the filling so that your teeth are protected against decay and cavities.

Wisdom Tooth Pain

Wisdom teeth create problems for many adults. As they grow in, they can cause discomfort to the gums and cheeks. If this issue is not addressed, there could be damage to the surrounding teeth.

If you’re dealing with sudden wisdom tooth pain, you may require emergency dental services. Our dentists have experience with oral surgeries and can perform surgical extractions when necessary.

Knocked Out Tooth

If you lose a tooth, we suggest that you put it in a safe place. Rinse it under a low-pressure stream of warm water to remove any dirt; then, try inserting it back into the socket and biting down gently. If it doesn’t hold, place it in a clean cup of milk.

At our dental clinic, we understand the time-sensitive nature of this issue. It’s important to receive emergency dental treatment as soon as possible to increase the chances that your tooth can be restored.

Broken Tooth

A cracked or broken tooth can cause excruciating pain. The sharp edges may cut the insides of your mouth, including your cheeks and tongue. In addition, a cracked tooth leaves you vulnerable to an infection. This dental emergency requires prompt treatment to prevent the loss of the tooth or other complications.

TMJ Disorder

Many people hold tension in their jaws; this can lead to jaw pain, which makes it difficult to move your mouth. For those with TMD (temporomandibular joint disorder), waking up with jaw pain is a regular occurrence. If the jaw is repeatedly strained, a mild ache may lead to a dental emergency.

Severe Toothache

Everyone experiences toothaches now and then, but in some situations, the pain can be severe. It may interfere with your ability to go to work or socialize with others.

Don’t let pain ruin your plans. Our emergency dental services can alleviate the discomfort caused by damaged teeth.

Gum Disease

Your gums are what keep your teeth secure and healthy in your mouth. If they become infected or injured, it threatens your overall oral health. Sensitive gums can lead to pain throughout your mouth.

You may injure your gums while eating or brushing your teeth. Rest assured—this dental emergency can be treated at our office.

Mouth Injury (Bitten Tongue/Lip)

Biting part of your mouth can cause a shocking burst of pain. Although it can be mild in some cases, you may end up with a serious injury that requires medical attention. Prompt treatment is the key to preventing further complications.

Dental Abscess

Infected teeth are a dental emergency. A tooth abscess can lead to the loss of a tooth. To treat an abscess, a combination of antibiotics, restorative dental services, and strong oral hygiene can help. A root canal treatment can be performed to remove the infected pulp. If necessary, we can schedule an extraction to remove the infected tooth.
