Dental Emergencies in Edmonton
Unfortunately, excruciating tooth pain and oral injuries do not happen on a given schedule. Your expert oral health team at Strathcona Dental Clinic in Edmonton understands that dental emergencies happen outside of regular business hours and we are here to help. If you have a dental emergency that arises, we urge you to contact us for emergency dental services.
Same-Day Appointments for Dental Emergencies
Your Strathcona Dental team is dedicated to your oral health and comfort and we understand the need for same day appointments when dental emergencies arise. Waiting days for an appointment when you are in pain, have a broken tooth or filling or an oral infection has taken hold is not acceptable to us and we do our best to accommodate you on the same day.
Oral Injuries Causing Tooth Loss
A same-day appointment is especially important if you have lost a permanent tooth due to an oral injury. If you act quickly and contact us right away, we may be able to save your tooth or teeth that have been knocked out. In the event of losing a permanent tooth, the following steps should be followed to maximize the odds of successful re-implantation:
- Handle the tooth with care and avoid touching the root.
- If the tooth has dirt on it, hold it by the crown portion and rinse it with milk. Water can be used if milk is not available. Make sure you do not rub or otherwise dry the tooth after rinsing to avoid extra damage.
- Keep the tooth moist by either soaking it in milk or holding it in your mouth between your cheek and gums.
- See your Strathcona Dental team as soon as possible. Your best chance at re-implantation is within an hour of the injury.
