Walk-In for Emergency Dental Services in Edmonton

Call Us Now

A knocked-out tooth or bitten tongue can cause panic in any parent. Still, quick thinking and staying calm are the best ways to approach such common dental emergencies and prevent additional unnecessary damage and costly dental restoration. This includes taking measures such as the application of cold compresses to reduce swelling, and of course, contacting our office as soon as possible.

Intense toothaches and dental traumas often require immediate attention in order to minimize damage and reduce pain. Fortunately, Heritage Dental Centre offers emergency dental services for several issues.

Broken Teeth

A cracked or broken tooth may require immediate attention if the fracture is very painful or the remaining tooth has sharp edges. Depending on the fracture’s severity, an emergency dentist will reinforce the damaged tooth with a filling, crown or root canal.

In the meantime, rinse your mouth well with warm water. Hold a cold compress against your face to help reduce the pain and swelling.

Knocked-Out Teeth

A knocked-out tooth can usually be saved if it’s re-implanted within an hour of the incident. Usually, the dentist will temporarily secure it with a soft wire or composite material. Alternatively, a root canal may be required.

In the meantime, try to handle the tooth as little as possible. Rinse it in warm water and place it in a container of milk. If there’s any bleeding, apply pressure to the area with a wet piece of gauze or a teabag.

Tooth or Gum Pain

Severe and persistent tooth or gum pain may indicate that you have an abscessed tooth, especially if a high fever or sinus pain accompanies it. In this case, you should contact an emergency dentist immediately. A root canal will likely be required to relieve the pain and prevent the infection from spreading to your jaw and surrounding tissues.

In the meantime, gently rinse your mouth with warm water and hold a cold compress against your face to reduce the pain and swelling.

Lost Filling or Crown

If a filling or crown falls out, the exposed tooth tissue may be painful and sensitive to temperature, pressure and air. The tooth will also be weakened and vulnerable to damage. Make an appointment with your dentist as soon as possible to have the filling or crown replaced.

In the meantime, to protect the teeth, put a piece of softened sugarless gum in the filling spot. For a lost crown, apply clove oil to the sensitive area and put the crown in a safe place.
