From a painful toothache to a chipped tooth, when dental emergencies arrive, it’s important that you act quickly. The sooner you seek treatment, the better for your overall oral health. At Southcentre Dental Clinic we are proud to offer emergency dental services in the Calgary area.

Our Southcentre Dental Clinic team is well trained and well equipped to handle any situation and we offer effective and affordable treatments when it comes to emergency dental care.

Southcentre Dental Clinic Emergency Dental Services:

Facial pain and swelling treatment

If you’re experiencing facial swelling and pain, you could be facing a more serious dental emergency, including abscess. An abscess occurs when bacteria reaches the nerve of your tooth because of underlying tooth decay, gum disease or because of a cracked tooth. It’s vital that you get immediate treatment as this is a serious infection.

Our emergency dentist will treat abscess with antibiotics to help reduce the pain, swelling and eliminate the bacteria from entering your bloodstream.

Chipped/fractured/cracked tooth treatment

Treatment for a damaged tooth will depend on the severity of the damage. At Southcentre Dental Clinic our treatment options include fillings, dental cap/crown, dental veneers or in the severest of cases, root canal. The main goal of all of these types of procedures is to help improve your appearance and smile.

 

Dislodged filling treatment

When a filling falls out, you may feel pain or discomfort—that’s why it’s critical that you make an emergency dental visit. If you leave a dislodge filling untreated, it could lead to a possible root canal or loss of the tooth. Treatment includes numbing the area and restoring the tooth with another filling. In some cases, you may need a crown or cap to help restore the integrity of the tooth.

Remember that regular dental care is recommended to detect future problems with fillings.

Tissue injury treatment

Trauma, such as lacerations, cuts or other wounds to the lips, tongue, and cheek—any type of trauma to the soft tissues of your mouth may require emergency dental care. Once in the chair, we’ll complete a thorough physical exam, checking for tooth and bone damage. Larger cuts may require stitches but treatment varies depending on each patient’s circumstances. In addition, we’ll prescribe an antibiotic to prevent future infections. The good news is that the mouth contains many blood vessels which promotes quick healing

 

Emergency Dental cost

The total cost of your emergency dental procedure will vary on numerous factors of your surgery. At Southcentre Dental Clinic, we have payment options available to help you fit your treatment into your budget easily. Learn more about our financing options here.

Dental Emergencies: What to Do

  • Whether you are experiencing a toothache or a dental injury has occurred, treatment should never be delayed. Ignoring a dental problem can increase the risk of permanent damage, often requiring more expensive and extensive treatments in the future.

    Taking immediate steps when a dental emergency occurs can prevent additional damage and also improve the outcome of the treatment. When you contact our emergency dental clinic in Calgary to schedule an emergency dental appointment, we will provide instructions for immediate steps to care for the tooth until you see an our emergency dentist in Calgary.

Here are a few recommendations to help you know the immediate steps to take for common dental emergencies:

Gently swish your mouth with warm water, then use floss to eliminate any food lodged between the teeth. If your mouth is painful or swollen, try using a cold compress on the outside of your cheek.
Close up macro shot of interior of mouth and fillings and crowns on teeth

When a filling or crown breaks, it is important to see the dentist as soon as possible. Bring the crown with you to the appointment.

Pick up the tooth by the crown and avoid touching the root. If it’s dirty, gently rinse in water, but don’t scrub it or remove attached tissue. Don’t force the tooth back into the socket. Place the tooth in a small container of milk and bring it to the emergency dental visit. If possible, see a dentist within 1 hour to increase the chances of saving the tooth.
Gently rinse the pieces of the tooth and save them to bring to the treatment. Rinse the mouth using warm water. Apply gauze to manage bleeding if needed. Use a cold compress on the outside of the mouth to minimize pain and swelling.
When an injury occurs to the soft tissue, including the gums, cheeks, lips, or tongue, you should control the bleeding. Rinse your mouth using a mild saltwater solution. Moisten a piece of gauze and apply pressure to the area that is bleeding. Hold the gauze in place for 15 to 20 minutes. A cold compress applied to the outside of the mouth can also be used to slow the bleeding. If the injury is severe and bleeding doesn’t stop, then it might be necessary to go to a hospital emergency room before seeing an emergency dentist.
