What can I do if I have a dental emergency?
Dental emergencies are scary, but they do happen. The first thing to remember is not to panic. We recommend that you call our Calgary, AB dental clinic immediately, and our experienced team can help you decide on the best next steps.
Here are some other tips for handling some common dental emergencies:
- If you have knocked out a tooth, keep it moist until you can get to our office. Try to put it back into the socket if you can. It’s imperative to get to the dentist soon if there is going to be any chance of saving the tooth.
- If you have a toothache, you might need to come in immediately, depending on its severity. When toothaches go from bad to unbearable, you might have a tooth infection that needs a root canal.
- If you have suffered any type of trauma and your teeth have been loosened, you need to call immediately. When the trauma is because of a blow to the head or an automobile accident, you should go straight to the emergency room and call us from there.
- If you have broken a tooth, this is probably an immediate dental emergency. Contact us right away for an assessment.
If you are ever unsure of your situation, just give our dental office a call!
