If you’ve ever woken up in the middle of the night with excruciating tooth pain that only gets worse, or experienced any sort of dental trauma, you understand the value of taking care of your dental emergency right away. At Parkland Mall Dental Centre, we extend our hours on weekdays and weekends to cover you in the event of an emergency!
Dental emergencies can occur anytime, from a chipped or broken tooth, to knocked out teeth due to accidents. Our emergency dentists in Red Deer are ready to treat dental emergencies to relieve pain.
Here are some common dental emergencies and tips on how to handle them before meeting our dentists:
Chipped or broken tooth: A broken or chipped tooth in most cases can be saved. If it's a small tooth break, our dentists will use a white filling to fix the tooth. If it is more serious, we may recommend a root canal treatment or a crown/cap.
Knocked-out tooth / Lost tooth: If your tooth has been knocked out, there is a chance your dentist can replant it. Act quickly to place the tooth back in its socket if possible and visit the dentist immediately. If you are unable to do that, do NOT rinse the tooth with water or anything else; simply place it in some milk and see a dentist immediately.
Toothache or gum pain: If you are suffering from an intense toothache or gum pain, you can take over-the-counter pain medicine to reduce the pain temporarily. Holding an ice pack against the spot of the sore tooth can also provide pain relief.
There is absolutely no good reason to put up with unrelenting tooth pain or trauma. Our licensed team of general dentists is available and equipped to provide you with the care you require for your dental emergency. Remember, we offer you the following benefits for all dental emergencies:
Tooth pain can be overwhelming. The problem is that getting an appointment can sometimes take days. Thankfully, Parkland Mall Dental Centre understands the urgency of dental emergencies and will do all we can to make things better as quickly as possible.
