What are Dental Emergencies, and how can we help you?
What qualifies as a Dental Emergency?
The general rule is severe pain, bleeding, loss of a tooth or swelling. In such cases, you should consult a dentist right away. If you are in severe discomfort with an oral health issue, never hesitate to contact us for emergency dental care. At Expressions Dental, we provide emergency dental care services like emergency root canal treatment, emergency teeth extractions, accidents involving oral injuries, etc. We aim to treat your dental emergencies promptly and as comfortably as possible.
With years of wear-and-tear, your teeth might be vulnerable to cracking. These broken teeth can result in a painful situation. Often, a toothache is a result of a cracked or fractured tooth.
Treatment: We will try to relieve your pain and offer a variety of dental emergency solutions, including dental crowns and implants. Minor tooth fractures may be able to be restored with fillings or bonding. In some cases, a root canal may be advised, or even a complete tooth extraction.
You can lose or damage your teeth through accidents or injuries. Such injuries are incredibly painful and can be classified as an immediate dental emergency.
Treatment: Expressions Dental
can offer you emergency dental services in Calgary in the form of tooth replacement options. The severity of the trauma will define the solution to be provided. Consult a dentist right away when you are suffering from dental trauma.
An underlying dental problem could be the cause of a severe infection, and eventually, pain and swelling. A tooth infection or cavity can also be a result of a dental abscess. These infections are common in people with poor dental health and may result from a lack of regular dental care. You can prevent dental infections by maintaining good dental hygiene and brushing twice a day.
Treating infections might require multiple appointments to gauge the progress of the procedure. Treatments might include a root canal to get rid of the infection. You might also be prescribed some antibiotics to make sure that the infection doesn’t spread to other teeth.
Tooth decay, an abscessed tooth, infected gums, or a damaged filling can be causes of a toothache. Toothaches can be unbearable at times, and you should visit a dentist right away for such cases. Delaying such aches might complicate the procedure in the future.
Treatment: Treating toothaches will require an examination of your mouth, teeth, gums, jaw and tongue. An X-ray might also be taken. The result of these examinations will help determine the cause of your toothache and then a solution can be provided.
Often popcorn hulls, fibres of meat and many other small objects tend to get stuck between your teeth. Even instances like biting the tip of your pen/pencil can also lead to situations where objects get stuck in your teeth. In such occurrences, where the trapped object becomes irremovable or painful, you must seek emergency dental care.
Treatment: In such cases, our general dentists at Expressions Dental™ in Calgary NW will generally provide you with a solution in one sitting, depending on the seriousness of the situation. Consult a dental office that accepts emergencies, without further delay to bring the situation under control, without causing much damage to your teeth or gums.
Tissue injuries can be cuts, lacerations or wounds to the lips, tongue and cheek. Treatment of such damage will require an immediate examination by a dentist.
Treatment: Solutions for such procedures vary for each patient’s condition. Consult with a dentist for further solutions. The patient’s condition will determine further actions. Make sure you do not delay in consulting a dentist in cases of tissue injuries.
Sports injury, falling or any other trauma might cause the tooth to get knocked out of its socket. In such cases, preserve the tooth in milk and get emergency dental care
Treatment: General dentists might be able to save the tooth if the accident is treated within hours of the incident. Otherwise, tooth-replacement solutions will be provided.
Poor oral maintenance or simply wear-and-tear over time, or even trauma might cause your dental crowns and fillings to become dislodged. If your crown or fillings come out, see your dentist immediately.
Treatment: We at Dr Vijay’s Denta Spa in Calgary NW are able to provide you with emergency dental care solutions in such cases. Dentists might suggest you a new crown that fits securely. If you lose a filling, the dentist will remove the remnants and replace it with new fillings. In a lot of cases, the crown may be able to be recemented back in.

Precautionary Measures to Avoid Dental Emergencies
- Stick to using your teeth for chewing food only! People often use their teeth to break open packages with their teeth, causing damage to their teeth.
- While engaging in contact sports, make sure you are protecting your teeth with a mouth-guard.
- Avoid food that’s hard to bite, e.g. candies.
- For a knocked-out tooth, keep the tooth moist at all times.
- Use dental floss regularly to remove any food caught between your teeth.
- For objects stuck between your teeth, try to remove it using floss.
Emergency Dentists VS General Dentists
With the use of the keywords “Emergency Dentists,” “Emergency Dental Clinic Calgary,” and “Emergency Dentist Calgary,” it may imply that it’s a dental specialist clinic offering this service. As a matter of fact, we are a “General Dentist Clinic” in Calgary NW and we are available to provide Emergency dental services and care in Calgary. You can walk-in into our Clinic anytime during our working hours and get emergency dental services.
General dentists undergo training in dental school for basic dental emergencies and are able to provide most Emergency dental care to their patients. General dentists are not called “Emergency Dentists” because there is no special training that exists to be called an Emergency Dentist. A “dental specialist” is someone who has furthered their education in a particular field and has the required degree or diploma certifying their specialty. It is therefore important that a patient understands that they are receiving emergency dental care from a general dentist as opposed to a specialist. We are a general dental clinic, offering emergency dental care to our patients.
Sometimes emergency dental care may involve referrals to another dentist or specialists. We will provide you with any references as needed. In some cases, our dentist may give you an emergency prescription to render emergency dental treatment.Expressions Dental follows the Alberta Dental Association and College Fee Guide and our fees are in accordance with the suggested fee guide for the convenience of our patients.
