The following are some common dental emergencies:

We are available to help you with any kind of dental emergency.
In case you cannot visit us, here are a few ways to handle the emergency at home:
Toothaches Aching teeth can often be a sign of infection, thoroughly clean the area by rinsing your mouth with warm water and using floss to remove any food particles. Apply a cold compress to the outside of your mouth or cheek to ease pain and help with swelling.
Knocked-out tooth Retrieve the tooth if possible and wash off the root using water. Make sure to not remove any tissue fragments. If you cannot place the tooth back in the socket, put the tooth in a small container of milk and visit your dentist as soon as possible.
Chipped or broken tooth Save any pieces of the tooth that you can. Rinse out your mouth with warm water and apply gauze to the area if it is bleeding. Use a cold compress to reduce pain and swelling.
Partially dislodged tooth You can relieve pain temporarily by using a cold compress or taking an over-the-counter pain reliever.
We are here to help you take care of the problem quickly. Our friendly, compassionate and gentle staff will help to ease your mind while your treatment is being completed. Contact Emerald Hills Dental Centre in Sherwood Park to request an emergency appointment.
