What is a Dental Emergency?
If you are suffering from any type of dental pain, or if you have had any injury to your tooth or to its surrounding tissue, this is likely a dental emergency and should be attended to as soon as possible.
Common types of dental emergencies include:
- toothaches or throbbing tooth pain
- chipped, fractured, knocked out or broken teeth
- loss of a filling or crown
- a badly bitten lip or tongue
- bleeding in the lips, gums or tongue
- facial swelling of any kind
- pain when biting or chewing
- tooth or gum infection
- sensitivity to hot or cold temperatures
- sensitivity to sweet liquids or food
If you are experiencing any of these or any other type of sudden or unexpected tooth pain or injury, we recommend that you call us immediately so that we may assess the type and severity of emergency that you are experiencing.
Even if you are not experiencing significant pain, you should be checked for any possible structural damage to your tooth or damage to any surrounding tissue. Often, the sooner treatment is provided, the more favourable the outcome.
If you or your family member is experiencing a dental emergency, please call our Calgary dental office at 403.283.4252.
