What is considered a "dental emergency"?
We’re not made of titanium - even Hercules can chip or fracture a tooth! There are many situations that life throws our way that can result in the need of an emergency dentist in Fort Saskatchewan. Maybe you’ve bitten down too hard on something you’ve eaten that’s caused you to crack a tooth. Perhaps you’ve developed a cavity that has weakened the tooth and caused it to break. Maybe an old filling has come loose or fallen out, and you’re left with an awful toothache that needs attention. Pain from a toothache can range from mild to severe, and may indicate that you have a gum infection, tooth decay, exposed root, an abscess, or worse. It’s recommended to have any tooth pain looked at as soon as possible.
What if your tooth has been knocked out of your mouth?!
Teeth can get knocked out from recreational activities like hockey or baseball, or simply from taking a tumble. We recommend the use of a mouth or sports guard when taking part in action-packed recreational activities. In the event you’ve knocked out a tooth, sometimes it’s possible to save the tooth. Preserve it in milk or water and try to make it over to our dental clinic in Fort Saskatchewan within the hour. In the event the tooth cannot be saved, there are various treatment options to fill a missing tooth such as a dental bridge or tooth implant. Speak to your dentist about your options.
