Do you require Calgary Emergency Dentistry? We know that a dental emergency is not fun for anyone, and it tends to arise at the worst times. If you’re not sure whether a dental problem requires emergency dentistry, our Calgary dentists offer this advice: if it hurts, it’s an emergency! Attempting to wait out the pain often leads to worsening the situation. Contact us immediately; Pathways Dental Clinic is available 24/7 for any Emergency Dentistry concerns in Calgary.

Even injuries that seem minor or superficial, like chips or small fractures, can affect the living tissue inside the teeth. Likewise, with lost fillings and crowns, even without symptoms, the tooth has lost its support and could easily become weaker, requiring further and more extensive treatment later on. If treatment is provided quickly, the odds of saving injured or damaged teeth significantly improve.

What to do if a tooth has been broken or knocked out

If a tooth has been knocked out or broken, place it in milk if possible, and bring it to the office as soon as possible. The sooner the avulsed tooth is placed back (if this is an option), the higher the chance of it being successfully treated. You should aim to be seen within one hour of your injury.

Pain medication and antibiotics may be prescribed by your dentist to alleviate the symptoms before treatment. A visual and radiographic (x-ray) examination by the dentist will provide information so your dentist can determine what treatment is required moving forward.

We welcome all emergencies, and we are here to help! Our goal is to relieve your pain and discomfort and save your teeth. If you think you are experiencing a dental emergency, call Pathways Dental Clinic right away at (403) 455-5565.
