Emergency Dentist in NW Calgary, AB

At Springhill Dental, our dentist in Calgary understands that dental emergencies can occur at any time and can be quite painful and sometimes frightening. In most cases, it is important to get to our clinics as soon as possible so that our dentists can assess the severity of each case. Below are some handy tips to help us make sure you’re back to smiling again in no time.

Some Common Dental Emergencies are:

Chipped tooth

Very often, chips occur from minor injuries or falls or from a recreational activity. It is important that the mouth area is rinsed with water to get rid of any dirt. Call our dentist in NW Calgary so that we can then assess the seriousness of the chip. Sometimes an ice pack can help to reduce swelling if the chip was caused by a hard fall.

Knocked-out tooth

These are quite common, particularly in contact sports, and can be helped if you ensure you get to the dentist near me as soon as possible. Our dentists understand that these emergencies require a timely response and will make room in our schedules for such appointments. Try to keep the tooth in its original position after a quick wash with saliva or milk to get rid of any dirt. If this is not possible, keep it as moist as possible such as in milk or wrapped in plastic. Remember, try not to touch the root, but hold the tooth at the crown instead.

Toothaches

This is a common occurrence and can be quite aggravating, depending on the severity of the pain. Pain relief can help to ease discomfort but it is vital you contact our clinic so they can assess the reason for the pain.

Abscess

This type of emergency can become quite serious, even life-threatening, if not treated promptly. An abscess is an infection which can cause damage to the nerves and surrounding gum and will need to be treated by a dentist as soon as possible. Pain relief may help to ease discomfort.

Damaged filling or crown

This generally occurs with the growth of a cavity beneath the crown or filling. It can be quite painful when eating and drinking as your tooth is exposed, making it sensitive to heat and cold. Our Calgary dentist will be able to replace your crown or filling, so you can get back to enjoying life again!

For emergency dental care, we strive to see our Calgary clients within 24 hours (during business hours), and the same day if possible. New clients are always welcome. The purpose of your visit will be to relieve the discomfort, diagnose the problem and advise you of your options for resolving it. We may:

  • Take x-rays
  • Check the condition of your teeth
  • Smooth off sharp edges
  • Prescribe medication
  • Refer you to a specialist

Our emergency dentistry in Calgary welcomes patients from the surrounding areas of Scenic Acres, Ranchlands, Northwest Calgary, Silver Springs, and Bowness.

Remember : Prompt response to dental emergencies can make a huge difference so don’t delay. Contact us if you or your loved one is in need of an emergency appointment.

We are opening with changes to keep you safe!

We are looking forward to seeing each and every one of you, very soon! We will be opening our clinic for all your dental care needs on May 25th. Until then, we are still available for any emergency and urgent dental care you may require.

Our office will have a number of changes designed around giving you a safe, efficient and comfortable experience.

  • Have you travelled outside of Alberta within the last 14 days?
  • Have you been diagnosed with covid19 or come in contact with a known covid 19 case?

What we will need from you:

  • Please arrive 15 minutes prior to your appointment and call the front desk at 403-297-0220. Please wait outside of the clinic in your vehicle and when you call us we will complete our Covid 19 screening questionnaire with you. We will then let you know when we are ready to see you. We are limiting access to our clinic to facilitate proper social distancing. Please also note that there will be no access to our washroom at this time to facilitate better infection control
  • Please come to your appointment wearing a mask.
  • Be prepared for us to take your temperature at the time of your visit using a no-contact thermometer
  • Be prepared to fill out a covid health questionnaire and consent for treatment form when you arrive.

Waiting Room:

  • Accompaniment of patients will be limited to one essential caregiver and one parent of minors; all others will be asked to wait in their vehicle outside the clinic.

What the clinic is doing to ensure your safety:

  • Enhanced cleaning methods with approved sanitization products
  • Hand Sanitization station-please clean your hands before your treatment
  • Staggered appointment times to allow for cleaning in between patients
  • Plexiglas barrier at the front desk to minimize exposure between staff and patient.
  • Tap payments (no cash payments will be accepted at this time)
  • All team members will be pre-screened before and when they arrive to work to ensure they are healthy to work. Any team member that does not pass the screening will be asked to go home. We are doing this to ensure we are keeping you and all our team members safe. All team members will be wearing the appropriate PPE at all times and employing high standards of hand hygiene and infection control
  • All service personnel and couriers will be screened and asked to sanitize when they arrive and all deliveries will be sprayed and stored to sanitize

The above changes may take some time to get used to and may seem overwhelming, but we are making them because the health of our patients and staff remains our top priority.

Thank you for your patience and understanding. We look forward to seeing you and appreciate your support to help maintain a safe environment in our clinic.
