Dental Emergencies Services

Urgent dental care for a gum abscess or tooth infection

Tooth infection is often unexpected and can be quite painful. This situation requires immediate care and attention, not only to reduce pain but also to prevent permanent damage and avoid costly services in the future. If left untreated, the infection can spread to the surrounding bone and gum tissue causing further damage that may require a tooth extraction.

If you experience a dental emergency, please visit our urgent dental care in Calgary as soon as symptoms arise instead of waiting for the toothache to subside.

Tissue injury

Oral or dental injury is not limited to the teeth only, soft tissue of the mouth such as the gums, lips, and cheeks can be involved. These injuries could result in wounds/sores, bleeding or abscess.

  • Rinse you mouth with warm salt-water rinse (1/2 teaspoon in 8 ounces water) to clean the wound from any debris. It will help to keep the area clean to avoid serious soft tissue abscess. If the wound is longer than ½ inch in length, sutures may be needed.
  • If you have a persistent bleeding, it is important to stop it by placing a gauze or tea bag over the bleeding area and applying continuous gentle pressure for about 15-20 minutes. Do not take Advil or Ibuprofen if you have bleeding, these medications will thin the blood to cause more bleeding. Tylenol is the best pain reliver in this case.

Many minor soft tissue injuries heal on their own. However, you have tried home remedies but symptoms persist or worsen a dental professional attention is required.
Contact Nolan Ridge Dental as your emergency dental in Calgary to book an appointment.

Emergency dental services for Cracked, Knocked-out or Chipped Teeth

A fractured or cracked tooth occurs due to age, tooth grinding, trauma and other factors. If the tooth is broken and you are able to save the fractured piece, bring it along to your dental appointment. All fractured or broken teeth should be properly assessed by a dental professional to provide a safe and effective treatment before other issues come up. At Nolan Ridge Dental Clinic in Calgary NW our dentist will discuss with you all options and offer the appropriate treatment depending on your tooth condition.

If your tooth is knocked out, see your dentist as soon as possible (within an hour of being knocked out). Retrieve the tooth, and try to place it back into the socket. Rinse the tooth with water if it’s dirty by holding it by the crown, do not scrub off or remove any attached tissue fragments. If possible, try to put the tooth back into the socket (without forcing it) making sure it’s facing the right direction. Bite down gently to hold it in place. If it’s not possible, store the tooth in milk (or cup of water that contains a pinch of table salt) until you book an emergency dental services in Calgary in Nolan Ridge Dental.

Broken veneer, bridge, dentures
If you have broken veneer, bridge or dentures, save all parts and contact our dentistry emergency to have it fixed. In some cases, broken restorations can be repaired. If you have loose crown or bridge, please bring them with you to your emergency dental appointment for re-cementation.

How to deal with a broken tooth while waiting for an appointment with Calgary emergency dentist

If you have broken tooth, try to save all fragments of the tooth and bring them to your dental appointment. A few things you can do when a dental emergency arises to minimize the risk of developing complications before seeing your dentist:

  • Rinse your mouth with warm saltwater or use a cold compress to minimize swelling, pain or spread of infection. It is not recommended to use numbing gel as that only masks the symptoms but not the cause and may further exacerbate the problem.

At the walk-in dentist in Calgary, Nolan Ridge Dental, we always welcome any dental emergencies as we understand it can occur at any moment.

Maintaining oral health to avoid dental emergencies

Some dental emergency situations arise unexpectedly in spite of our best efforts, but you can still minimize risk of injuries to your teeth, jaws and gums.

  • If you play contact sport, it may increase a risk of fractured, broken or chipped tooth. Wearing a custom sports mouthguard will serve as protection for your teeth against any injury.
  • Those who grind or clench their teeth should wear a night guard while they sleep.
  • Brush your teeth twice daily, floss regularly to prevent build-up of plaque.

• Regular dental check-up and professional cleaning can significantly reduce any potential dental emergencies and complications.
