After-Hours Dental Emergencies
If you are experiencing a true dental emergency on the weekend or any time outside of normal business hours, please call our office directly. Our after-hours voicemail greeting will direct you to a mobile contact number for one of our dentists. Your situation is evaluated over the phone and the dentist will determine an appropriate course of action. Our priority is to make sure that you receive prompt care and that all measures are taken to reduce any pain you may be experiencing.
Our Northwest Edmonton emergency dental services are prioritized for patients with true dental emergencies. Even patients who are brand new to our practice may be offered a same-day appointment. Our commitment to flexibility makes us ideally suited for emergency dental care.
We routinely provide emergency care to patients in urgent need of root canals or tooth extractions. For an avulsed tooth (tooth knocked out), please contact our office and follow these steps to maximize your chances of saving the tooth:
- Pick up the tooth by the crown—don’t touch the root—and rinse the tooth under warm water.
- If possible, place the tooth back in the gum socket. If this is too painful, uncomfortable or unstable, then tuck the tooth into the pouch of the cheek.
- If it is not possible to place the tooth back in the mouth, then place it in a cup of milk or saliva. Use water only as a last resort. Don’t let the tooth dry out.
- If you lose a filling or a crown, then follow these steps:
- Apply clove oil to the tooth to reduce pain
- Clean the crown and use dental cement to re-affix it to the tooth. Dental cement is available at your local pharmacy. If the crown is lost, then apply dental cement to the top of the tooth. This will reduce discomfort.
For teeth that become cracked or broken, contact our office right away and follow these steps:
- Rinse the broken tooth and your mouth with lukewarm water.
- If there is bleeding, then apply a gauze to the area for ten minutes.
- Take a cold, damp dish towel and apply it to your cheek to reduce the swelling and pain.
- If you’re unable to get to a dentist immediately, then use over-the-counter dental cement to cover the affected area.
- Use a topical pain reliever.
