In Emergency Dental Situations, Time Matters!

At North Main Family Dental, we reserve time in our daily schedule for dental emergencies, and we will accommodate both existing patients and those that are unable to see their regular dentist promptly. We will provide you with assistance over the phone and advise you on how to remain as comfortable as possible until your appointment. Even injuries that seem superficial or small can affect the living tissue inside of the tooth. Quick treatment improves the chances of saving damaged or injured teeth and also keeps financial costs to you down by preventing further damage from occurring.

What is Considered an Emergency?

If you are experiencing pain from a sudden or a lingering toothache, a fractured or knocked-out tooth or an accident that involves the teeth and/or jaw, you should be seen and treated by your dentist immediately.

The following are the most common symptoms of a Dental Emergency:

  • You have had a tooth knocked out
  • You have a chipped, cracked, or broken tooth
  • You have bitten your lip or tongue
  • You have a loose tooth
  • You are experiencing an infection, or you have an abscessed tooth or gums
  • You are suffering a toothache that will not go away and/or is not responsive to pain medication
  • You are experiencing sensitivity to hot or cold liquids
  • You are experiencing pain from biting pressure
  • You have abnormal gum bleeding or swelling
  • You are experiencing tissue swelling of the face
  • You have a bad taste or odour in your mouth
  • You have bleeding from the mouth
  • You have a loose restoration, such as a dental crown, filling, or bridge
  • You recently had dental work done and are experiencing pain or discomfort

Any of the above symptoms are very good indicators that you are experiencing some kind of dental emergency that should be dealt with in a timely fashion. If you think you are experiencing a dental emergency, call us immediately at (403) 980-0056. To manage some common dental emergencies, visit CDA Dental Emergency Management.

Preventing Dental Emergencies

Prevention is always the ideal, as we would like to see all of our patients avoid facing the stress of a dental emergency in the first place. The best way to prevent dental emergencies from occurring is to visit North Main Family Dental regularly for dental exams. This may be the most important preventative action you can take. During your dental exam, Dr. Richelle Bedier is naturally checking for signs of weakened teeth, loosened or ageing restorations, and early signs of inflammation that would indicate the presence of infection and the possibility of periodontal disease.

Another important preventative action you can take to avoid dental emergencies is to wear a properly fitting mouth guard while playing contact sports. Research has shown that a large percentage of dental injuries are sports-related. Wearing a properly fitting mouth guard can prevent many of these injuries.
