Emergency Dental Services in Edmonton
See us immediately if you develop any of the following dental problems:
- A sudden tooth ache – A tooth ache should never be ignored as it could likely be a symptom of a deeper underlying problem like an abscess or a root canal infection.We attend to any emergency dealing with root canal, extraction or abscess.
- Knocked out tooth, Chipped tooth or a Loose tooth –Seek our help if you have a knocked out tooth, a chipped tooth or a loose tooth. Time is everything when it comes to saving the knocked out tooth or teeth. It needs to be immediately put back in the socket. The chances of the revival of a knocked out tooth increase if it is held from the opposite end of it’s root(the part that is in contact with the gums) and immediately rinsed with water. It should then be placed back in the socket or if it cannot be put back in the socket then it should be kept moist by either immersing it in milk, saliva or just plain water. Dental help should be sought immediately thereafter. For chipped or partly broken tooth, if the broken piece can be found then it is sometimes possible to reattach it. Any dental injury leading to loosened tooth should be treated within 5-6 hours.
- Gums related emergencies- The tissues of the gums, lips or tongue are very sensitive and are easily prone to injuries due to accidental bites, fall or scalding fluids. Any such injury should be treated as a dental emergency and help of a dentist should be sought immediately
- Lost fillings, Loose crown or Bridges- Call us immediately if you have lost a filing or crown. A lost filing or crown exposes the tissues to outside temperature and bacteria which can lead to infection.
