At Point McKay Dental, we understand that emergencies can happen! We have seen it all, and we know the importance of dealing with a dental emergency in a timely manner. We also know that a dental emergency can be a frightening time. We care about our patients, and we want to make sure that we are available to help you, your family, and your friends with a dental emergency should one arise unexpectedly. Please contact us at (403) 283-7829 if you are experiencing a dental emergency.
If you are unsure whether something is a dental emergency or not, we offer this advice: if it hurts, it is an emergency! Point McKay Dental considers any situation in which you are experiencing pain or discomfort as a dental emergency. This is because even injuries that seem superficial or small can still affect the living tissue inside of the tooth.
Point McKay Dental reserves time in our daily schedule specifically for dental emergencies, and we will accommodate both existing patients, as well as new patients who are unable to see their regular dentist in a timely manner. We will offer our assistance over the phone to advise you on how to remain as comfortable as possible until you are able to be seen in our clinic.
If you experience any of the following, please contact our office immediately for assistance:
To manage these common dental emergencies until you can visit our office, please visit CDA Dental Emergency Management.
Preventing a dental emergency is the best way to avoid dental emergencies from occurring in the first place, and is best achieved by scheduling regular appointments for a comprehensive dental exam. Your dental exam includes checking for signs of weakened teeth, loosened or aging restorations, and early signs of infection that may indicate the presence of infection and the possibility of periodontal disease.
If you participate in any type of sporting activities that could impact your oral health, we encourage our patients, regardless of their age, to wear a properly fit, custom mouth guard while playing contact sports. Research shows that a large percentage of dental injuries are related to sports. A custom mouth guard can prevent many of these injuries from occurring.
