Have a Dental Emergency? We Can Help.

If you or someone you know experiences a dental emergency, call us at (403) 505-2345 after hours and you will be passed through to the on-call doctor. Here are just a few dental emergencies that you may experience.

Follow these tips until you can see our dentist:

Tips For a Toothache

  • Rinse your mouth with a warm saltwater mixture.
  • Apply ice or a cold compress to ease pain and swelling.
  • Take an over-the-counter pain reliever that could be a pill or capsule, however, never apply it directly on the tooth.
  • Contact our dentist as soon as possible to find out what the problem could be.

Tips For a Knocked Out Tooth

  • Gargle your mouth with warm water.
  • Retrieve the tooth entirely or the broken piece, carefully rinse it to remove debris and try placing it back into its socket.
  • If it can’t be reattached, place it in a bottle of milk or salt and water.
  • Contact your dentist as soon as possible, since it can be saved within an hour it was dislodged.

Tips For a Lost Dental Filling

  • The faster you realize you lost a dental filling the better it is to cover the exposed area.
  • Use sugar-free gum to cover the exposed cavity. Over-the-counter dental cement would also be fine to use as well.
  • Contact your dentist as soon as possible to have the matter attended to, even with over-the-counter cement covering.

Tips For a Lost Dental Crown

  • You can use over-the-counter dental cement or toothpaste and try to reattach the crown to the exposed tooth.
  • If you are experiencing pain, apply clove oil to it.
  • Contact your dentist as soon as possible so that the crown can be reattached to the tooth. If it can’t be reattached, we can replace it.

Tips For Broken Braces/Wires

  • Gently push the broken braces or wire with the eraser end of a pencil. If you can’t push it back into place, use orthodontic wax or a piece of gauze to cover up the broken end.
  • Never cut the broken end with scissors since it can be swallowed.
  • Contact your dentist right away to have the matter attended to.

Tips For An Abscess

  • Mix warm water with salt and gargle it to ease the pain in the affected area.
  • Gargle the salt water mixture a few times a day since it helps to kill the bad bacteria and infection.
  • See your dentist as soon as possible since abscesses can infect your other oral tissues and turn the problem into something more serious.
