Emergency Dental Services
Our experienced Calgary dentists offer same-day urgent care appointments and services for a wide range of dental emergencies. Whatever you need, we're here for you.
- Bitten Lip or Tongue
In most cases, bitten lips and tongues are minor injuries that do not require emergency dental care. But if the injury is severe, or if there is bleeding that won't stop, get to our dental office right away.
- Broken or Lost Filling
If you have a broken or lost filling, it's important to get to our dental office to have it repaired right away.
If left untreated, exposed tissue can cause you intense sensitivity or pain, and bacteria in your mouth can cause the tooth to deterioration further.

If a tooth cracks or breaks, it can become quite painful. Even if there is no pain, it is best to get to our emergency dental office as soon as possible to help prevent or reduce pain, and avoid tooth decay or infection of the inner pulp of the tooth.
- Gum & Mouth Pain

Gum pain can be caused by a variety of issues such as injury, disease or infection. The sooner you get to our dental office, the sooner the cause of your gum pain can be determined so we can begin treatment and ease your pain.
- Jaw Pain

- Knocked Out Tooth
If you have a knocked-out tooth, it's crucial that you get to our office within 30 minutes to an hour after it is knocked out.
If a knocked-out tooth is put back into place soon enough after it falls out, it may be able to re-attach to the jaw bone.
- Severe Toothache
Tooth pain caused by an injury (like a broken or cracked tooth) or severe oral infection (like a cavity or pulp infection) requires emergency care.
The pain may be either dull or sharp, but if it is consistent, and severe enough that you are unable to function effectively, get yourself to our office right away.
- Wisdom Tooth Pain
Spacing and crowding problems caused by wisdom teeth often create impaction and infection. Your pain may be a symptom of infection which, if left untreated, can lead to more serious oral health issues and pose a risk on your overall health. Our dentist can help.
