Emergency Dentist

Dental emergencies can strike at any time. They require immediate referral to the emergency dentist for the right solutions. Cityscape Square Dental has extended evening and Saturday office hours. 

Common Dental Emergencies

Dental emergencies can occur suddenly and require prompt attention to alleviate pain, prevent further damage, and ensure optimal oral health. Here are descriptions of some common dental emergencies:

  • Toothache: A toothache is a common dental emergency often caused by dental decay, infection, or trauma. It can be accompanied by intense pain, sensitivity, and swelling. Immediate dental care is necessary to diagnose and address the underlying cause.
  • Broken or Chipped Tooth: Accidents or injuries may result in a broken or chipped tooth. This can cause sharp edges, pain, and sensitivity. It is crucial to seek dental care promptly to prevent further damage and restore the tooth's structure and function.
  • Knocked-Out Tooth: When a tooth is completely knocked out due to a sports injury or accident, immediate action is necessary. Retrieve the tooth, handle it by the crown (avoid touching the root), rinse it gently with water, and try to reinsert it into the socket if possible.
  • Dental Abscess: A dental abscess is a painful infection that forms in the tooth's root or between the tooth and gum. It can cause severe throbbing pain, swelling, fever, and general discomfort. Dental intervention is crucial to drain the abscess, prescribe antibiotics, and treat the underlying cause.
  • Lost Filling or Crown: If a filling or crown becomes dislodged or falls out, the affected tooth becomes vulnerable to further damage and sensitivity. Prompt dental attention is necessary to replace or repair the filling or crown to protect the tooth.
  • Soft Tissue Injuries: Injuries to the lips, cheeks, gums, or tongue can result in bleeding and lacerations. Clean the area gently with warm water and apply pressure to control bleeding. If the bleeding persists or the injury is severe, seek immediate dental care.

Common Dental Emergency Services

Our Cityscape dental clinic offers the following procedures for patients in need of urgent care:

  • Wisdom Tooth Removal: At Cityscape Dental, we are equipped to accommodate any emergency wisdom tooth removal. If you’re experiencing severe pain in the back of your mouth or jaw, bleeding gums, swollen glands, or cysts, you may need your wisdom teeth to be removed promptly. Contact our dentists, and we will evaluate your situation and let you know the best course of action.
  • Tooth Extraction: If one or several of your teeth has been chipped or dislodged, or severely damaged, you may require emergency tooth removal. 
  • Root Canal: Root canal procedures save teeth that have become infected. In some scenarios, the symptoms such as hypersensitivity and tooth pain become so severe that they distract a patient from their everyday lives. Cityscape Dental can perform emergency root canal procedures to eliminate the infection and prevent its spread. Our dentists will promptly remove the infected pulp by drilling a hole into the tooth, cleaning it then sealing it.

How can I avoid a dental emergency?

Sometimes, unavoidable accidents happen that can lead to dental emergencies. However, if you practice good oral health by brushing twice and flossing once daily, you can avoid major dental problems. Visit the Cityscape Dental Clinic in Calgary for check-ups and regular teeth cleanings at least twice a year to catch any potential oral health problems early on. Avoid any oral injuries by always wearing a helmet and mouth guard when you play contact sports.
