When You Should Contact 

Your Emergency Dentist
You may wonder what the guidelines for a dental emergency are. An oral problem requiring immediate attention to save a tooth, reduce severe pain, or stop bleeding can be considered a dental emergency.
 What Are Some Common Dental Emergencies?
Severe Dental Pain
Any dental pain can be regarded as a dental emergency, especially if the pain is intense, chronic, and central. If your oral irritation meets these criteria, contact us immediately to get it checked.
Extreme Sensitivity to Hot or Cold
The centre of your tooth (the pulp) can become infected and cause intense discomfort and sensitivity if the dentin and the enamel are seriously damaged.
Chipped or Broken Tooth
Is your tooth (or teeth) cracked, chipped, or broken? This condition is grounds for contacting an emergency dentist as soon as possible. Broken or chipped teeth are a dental emergency because, if left unchecked, they can cause infection and even the loss of adjacent teeth.
If left unchecked, cavities can intensify until they expose the pulp chamber or cause breakage to the tooth. Either circumstance can be classified as a dental emergency.
Gum Infection
Gum infections can cause periodontitis and, if more severe, can even result in tooth loss. Signs of gum infection can include:
  • Toothache
  • Swelling
  • Mouth inflammation
  • Gums that easily bleed
  • Chronic bad breath
  • Tender and sensitive gums
Abscess Tooth
A dental abscess is pus caused by an infection. It collects in the teeth or gums, causing infections that can grow through the body and, as a result, produce severe, even life-altering consequences. So call your emergency dentist immediately if you believe you have an abscessed tooth.

Frequently Asked Questions

Any dental pain can be considered a dental emergency, especially if the pain is chronic and severe. Some common dental emergencies can include:

  • A chipped or broken tooth (or teeth)
  • Gum infection
  • Hot and cold sensitivity
  • A displaced tooth or teeth
  • An abscessed tooth
  • Cavities
  • Any kind of severe dental pain
It depends on the oral condition of the patient. If it’s necessary, a dentist may perform an emergency tooth extraction. All dentists are trained and qualified to perform this oral surgery. In fact, tooth extractions are a fairly standard dental procedure.
We are open for emergency dental services five days a week, Monday through Friday. Closed on weekends and holidays.
Yes, we accept walk-ins!
Yes, emergency dental services do incur slightly higher fees compared to regular checkups. Most dentists are qualified to handle oral issues that require lighter dental surgeries; this includes root canals, extractions, and filling insertions. However, emergency dentists handle all of these issues (plus many others), which may require additional surgical solutions and, as a result, higher premiums.

Determining whether an oral ache is a dental emergency can be challenging. Here are some revealing signs that you should contact an emergency dentist:

  • A loose tooth or teeth
  • Inflammation in your mouth or face
  • Severe toothaches
  • Swollen/sore jaw or mouth
  • Bleeding gums
  • Severe and chronic tooth pain/sensitivity
  • Tasting metal in your mouth

If you’re experiencing these or similar symptoms, contact us as soon as possible to book an emergency dental appointment.

Some of the most common dental emergencies include:

  1. Knocked-out tooth: Whether from a sporting accident or a nasty fall, if you find yourself with a loose or knocked-out tooth, don’t panic. Instead, collect the tooth (pick it up from its crown to avoid damaging the roots), wash any dirt or debris off, and try putting it back in its socket. Next, go to your dentist immediately for professional advice and assistance. 
  2. Cracked or broken teeth: If you have a cracked or broken tooth, save all the pieces of your tooth (or as much as you can). Next, rinse your mouth using warm water to clean the area and visit your dentist as soon as possible. 
  3. Dental abscess: A dental abscess is another typical dental emergency. It is a pus pocket within a tooth formed by an infection. At Stoney Trail, our expert dentists can drain the abscess to eliminate the infection. Your tooth may also be saved via a root canal surgery. However, sometimes the condition may be too severe. And if such is the case, the tooth must be removed. An untreated dental abscess can even result in life-threatening consequences.
  4. Severe toothache: Are you experiencing persistent tooth pain? This condition is among the most common dental emergencies. A few steps to alleviate your discomfort include:
    • Clean your mouth by rinsing it with warm water
    • Use floss to remove food remnants lodged between your teeth
    • Schedule an appointment with us to resolve the problem before it becomes worse

Many dental emergencies are avoidable. You can prevent a dental emergency by adopting better oral habits and a healthier lifestyle. Here are a few lifestyle changes to consider:

  1. Practice good oral hygiene: Brushing and flossing every day will do wonders for your oral health in the long run. 
  2. Consume a healthy diet: Fresh fruits and vegetables and getting enough water are essential. Also, limit soft drinks, sugary snacks, and processed foods. 
  3. Don’t ignore dental pain: Dental emergencies often start as small oral irritations—don’t ignore these, as they tend to become worse. Schedule a dental appointment, even for minor oral issues, to prevent them from worsening in the future.

A permanent tooth falling out can be a traumatic experience. Follow these five simple steps to handle a knocked-out tooth correctly: 

  1. Recover your tooth: DON’T grab the tooth’s root; ensure you only grab the crown (the top part of your tooth); this helps avoid any more damage from occurring.
  2. Wash the tooth: Use water or milk to clean the tooth. Refrain from wiping or scrubbing the tooth; just gently wash the root and crown.
  3. Reinsert the tooth: Reinserting the tooth can sometimes work; at the very least, it helps protect the sensitive root. Gently bite down on some soft fabric to hold the tooth in place. This pressure ensures your tooth won’t move too much.
  4. Protect the tooth: If you can’t reinsert it, place the tooth in a cup of milk to preserve it (do not use water).
  5. Visit your dentist or an emergency room: The quicker you visit your dentist, the greater your chances of tooth restoration. If your dental clinic is closed, then visit an emergency room. Take your tooth with you, so they can attempt to reinsert it.
