What do I need to do in a dental emergency?
Tips from an emergency dentist Calgary NE
- Be very careful handling the tooth. Only touch the crown (chewing surface) of your tooth.
- If the tooth completely came out, gently rinse it in clean water or milk and place back (reimplanted) into the socket from where it came. This can be done by the patient or parent and then checked by the dentist.
- If the tooth cannot be placed back in the socket, rinse the tooth with cold water for less than 10 seconds, and put it in milk. Do not place it in water.
- Keep gentle pressure with a gauze on the bleeding areas until the bleeding stops.
- Apply a cold pack on the cheek of the affected area to reduce swelling. An over-the-counter pain reliever can be taken as well.
Emergency dental treatment Calgary NE
Dealing with a broken tooth? Teeth that are chipped, cracked or broken can often be restored to a good appearance and function with a filling. Depending on the severity of trauma to the tooth pulp and nerves, root treatments or crowning may be required.
Surrounding teeth may also be affected, requiring a thorough exam of the whole mouth. Extraction occurs in treating more extreme cases, like split teeth. Immediate treatment by an emergency dentist is of utmost importance in successful reimplantation when a tooth has been knocked out or dislodged.
How do I know if my toothache is serious?
Toothache symptoms may include:
- Sharp, throbbing, or constant pain
- Pain when pressure is applied to the tooth
- Swelling around the tooth
- Fever or headache
- Sinus pressure
- Earaches and neck pain
- Foul-tasting seepage from the infected tooth
A dental infection can become dangerous if left untreated due to bacteria from the infection spread to other parts of the face, the skull, and eventually the bloodstream. If your pain lasts for 1-2 days, causes severe pain, or is accompanied by an earache, fever, or pain when opening your mouth wide, see us as soon as possible.
What is the main cause of a toothache?
No matter the cause, we hold no judgment. We will be prompt in helping you feel comfortable again and getting your oral health back on track.
Treatment for a broken tooth in Calgary NE

How to care for oral infections, swelling, and bleeding gums?
As with all infections, an oral infection should be treated as quickly as possible to reduce the risk of complications. Salt water mouth rinses can ease the pain while waiting to see the dentist.
Preventing dental infections
- Brush teeth thoroughly at least twice a day or after meals
- Floss teeth at least once a day
- Don’t over brush
- Don’t use teeth to open packaging or break a string, for example, to avoid teeth cracks, chips, or breaks
- Have dental cleanings and checkups at least twice a year
- Watch for any signs of infection after receiving dental work
