At North Main Family Dental, we care about our patients and want to make sure we are available to help you with any dental emergency issues you may be experiencing. We consider that any situation in which you are experiencing pain or discomfort qualifies as a dental emergency and should be treated as such. If you are experiencing a Dental Emergency that requires Emergency Dentistry, please contact us at (403) 980-0056 as soon as possible.
We reserve time in our daily schedule for dental emergencies and will accommodate both existing patients and those that are unable to see their regular dentist in a timely manner. We will provide you with assistance over the phone and advise you on how to remain as comfortable as possible until your appointment.
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 should be treated by your dentist immediately.

Let’s discuss prevention. Prevention is always the ideal as we’d like to see all of our patients avoid facing the stress of a dental emergency.
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 aging 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.
If you are experiencing a dental emergency, please call our office immediately at (403) 980-0056.
