Shawnessy Smiles | South Calgary Dentist | Emergency DentistryA dental emergency can be a very frightening time for everyone involved. At Shawnessy Smiles, we want to make sure that we are available to help you and your family when a dental emergency occurs unexpectedly. Please contact us at (403) 254-1124 if you are experiencing a dental emergency.

What is Emergency Dentistry?

We consider a dental emergency to be any situation in which you are experiencing pain or discomfort in your teeth, gum tissue or surrounding bone and jaw joints. If you are experiencing pain from a sudden or lingering toothache, fracture or knock-out tooth, or have been involved in an accident that involves your teeth and/or jaw should be treated by a dentist immediately.

Shawnessy Smiles accommodates emergency dentistry patients by reserving time in our daily schedule specifically for dental emergencies. We are also pleased to accommodate both existing and new patients who are unable to see their regular dentist in a timely manner. To help you before you arrive at our South Calgary dental office, 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 at our South Calgary Dental Office.

If you are experiencing any of the following, please contact our office immediately for assistance:

  • Teeth that have been knocked out
  • Chipped, cracked or broken teeth
  • Injuries to the soft tissues, such as biting your lip or tongue
  • Loose teeth
  • An infection of the teeth or gums that is not controlled with over-the-counter pain medications
  • Broken or damaged restoration such as a dental crown, filling or dental bridge
  • Pain and/or discomfort after recent dental treatment

To manage these common dental emergencies, until you can visit our office, please visit CDA Dental Emergency Management.

Preventing Dental Emergencies

Preventing a dental emergency is one of the best ways to avoid accidental dental emergencies. Booking an appointment with Dr. Roman Koutsil on a regular basis for a comprehensive dental exam helps us check for signs of weakened teeth, loosened or aging restorations and early signs of infection that may suggest the presence of infection.

Patients who participate in sporting activities that could cause a dental emergency are encouraged, regardless of their age, to wear a custom mouth guard while playing contact sports. A large percentage of dental injuries are related to sports, and wearing a custom mouthguard prevents many of these injuries from occurring.

We understand that a dental emergency requires immediate care and attention, and South Calgary Emergency Dentistry Services are only one of the many dental health services that we offer here at Shawnessy Smiles.

If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to call us at (403) 254-1124.
