We never like to think of emergencies, but they can happen. When a dental emergency does occur, you must act fast and contact our team at Alexandra Park Dental as soon as possible. If our office is closed, please proceed to the nearest drop-in clinic or emergency room.
Our clinic always sets aside some appointment time each day for any dental emergencies that might arise. Our team will do everything possible to help you or your family member recover from a dental emergency and restore your smile.
If you have lost one or more teeth in an accident, it’s important to try to find the whole tooth or the broken piece.
If you successfully find the tooth and it is intact, gently rinse it in cold water and try to reposition it in its socket. If it won’t stay in position, preserve the tooth in a glass of milk. Then, immediately contact our office. Depending on the condition of the tooth, the condition of your gums, and how long it has been detached, we may be able to reroot the tooth without the need for restorative dental care.
If you have a sudden and piercing toothache, contact our office as soon as possible. This can be a sign of an abscess, or severe tooth infection, or exposed nerve or root.
We’ll do everything in our power to help: from making an emergency appointment to suggesting pain relief treatments.
Although a lost filling or crown may not constitute an emergency, it can still cause pain and discomfort. If this happens, contact our clinic; depending on the severity of the situation, we will determine whether you need immediate attention or if an appointment made at your convenience will suffice.
You can find our office on the SW corner of 50th St. and 48th Ave, right across the street from Leduc Cinemas. We share a parking lot with the cinema and have additional parking next to our office. For your convenience, we are pleased to offer extended hours that include evenings and select weekends.
