There are a few different types of emergencies that you may experience. Here are a few tips on what to do if any of these are happening to you:
Lost filling or Broken Teeth
If you have a lost a filling or broken a tooth, this may or may not be a dental emergency. If the break is not causing you any pain or does not have any sharp edges, you can likely wait until your dentist opens in the morning if it happens after regular business hours. However, if you are experiencing severe pain or the break has very sharp edges or corners that are irritating other areas of your mouth, please give us a call promptly.
Knocked out or loose teeth
If you have experienced a facial trauma that knocks out an adult tooth it is a dental emergency and requires immediate attention. To improve the chances of it being able to be implanted and saved there are a few simple steps that should be taken; pick up the tooth (do not touch the root of the tooth), rinse the tooth with warm water to remove any dirt or debris, if possible gently place the tooth back into the socket but do not force it, if that is not possible keep the tooth in a small container with milk and seek immediate care.
If your affected tooth remains in your mouth but is loose or no longer in alignment, contact your dentist immediately as the dentist may need to splint the tooth to stabilize it so that the tooth does not fall out.
A toothache accompanied with an abscess requires immediate dental care. If you have a lump on your gums or swelling in your face you may have an abscess.
Dental Exams, Cleaning & Prevention
A dental exam is critical to your ongoing oral health. A dental exam is the first step in determining overall oral health and allows your dentist to detect any early dental problems that might require oral surgery or other interventions later on.
Children’s Dentistry – Family Friendly
Good habits are formed early in life. Here at Circle Drive & 8th Street Dental in Saskatoon, we know that bringing your child in at an early age starts them on a path to proper dental hygiene and health for the rest of their lives. And we are always happy to welcome new patients!
Emergency Dental Care
Are you experiencing a persistent toothache? Or perhaps a filling has broken and you need it repaired? Don’t worry, we are here to help! We provide a full range of emergency dental services for Saskatoon and accept emergency appointments on short notice.
Fillings, Bondings, Root Canals & Extractions
Cavities are one of the most common dental problems that our patients experience. Bonding is a painless way to make minor repairs to teeth. Root canal treatment is an effective and safe treatment for teeth whose pulp has become inflamed or infected. In some cases, an extraction is needed when a tooth cannot be restored.
Crowns, Veneers, Bridges & Implants
If your tooth is damaged, a crown can be used to restore its shape, appearance and function. You may need a crown if you have a root canal, a large filling or a broken tooth.
Nightguards, Sportsguards & Snoring Appliances
Here at our Saskatoon dental clinic, we provide fittings for nightguards, sports guards, and other equipment that protects your teeth against nighttime clenching and grinding, sports injuries and snoring.
If the thought of a dentist’s appointment makes you anxious, we have options that can make your visit more comfortable. Nitrous oxide, also known as laughing gas, is one option. Another form of sedation we offer at our clinic is oral sedation, for adults only.
Your smile is one of your best selling points, and no first impression is complete without one. Our clinic offers teeth whitening services to keep your pearly whites looking their best.
