Call our emergency dentists and we’ll accommodate you today. Any injury to the teeth or gums can be potentially serious and should not be ignored. Ignoring a dental problem can increase the risk of permanent damage, as well as the need for more extensive and expensive treatment down the road. Please give us a call and we can help you temporarily alleviate your dental discomforts.
Although many dental emergencies involve pain, a large number of emergencies are pain-free. If you have lost a filling, but aren’t feeling any pain, it may still constitute a dental emergency. Our dentists treat dental emergencies based on cosmetic and health concerns. The most common dental emergencies include the following:
At The Dentists at Beddington, we understand that accidents happen at the most inconvenient times. We work long hours (our Calgary dental clinic is open until 8:00 PM) and offer Saturday appointments so it is easier to accommodate immediate appointments.
If you or your loved one needs immediate dental attention, don’t hesitate to visit our emergency dental clinic in Calgary, Alberta. Our team is here to help with any dental emergency—large or small. Call 403-275-4000 to set up an appointment today.
The information below is offered as information only and not as professional advice. Please consult our dental professionals for such advice.
An abscess is an infection that occurs around the root of a tooth or in the space between the teeth and gums. Abscesses are a serious condition that can damage tissue and surrounding teeth. The infection can also potentially become serious and spread to other parts of the body if left untreated.
To ease the pain anti-inflammatory drugs are best such as Advil or Ibuprofen if you don’t have any contraindications against these medications. You also should be placed on a course of antibiotics to settle the pain. These can be prescribed to you by visiting one of our doctors for an assessment.
Save any pieces. Rinse the mouth using warm water; rinse any broken pieces. If there’s bleeding, apply pressure with a piece of gauze to the area for about 10 minutes or until the bleeding stops. Apply a cold compress to the outside of the mouth, cheek, or lip near the broken/chipped tooth to keep any swelling down and relieve pain. See one of our dentists as soon as possible.
Retrieve the tooth, hold it by the crown (the part that is usually exposed in the mouth), and rinse off the tooth root with water if it’s dirty. Do not scrub it or remove any attached tissue fragments. If possible, try to put the tooth back in place. Make sure it’s facing the right way. Never force it into the socket. If it’s not possible to reinsert the tooth in the socket, put the tooth in a small container of milk (or a cup of water that contains a pinch of table salt, if milk is not available). In all cases, see your dentist as quickly as possible. Knocked-out teeth with the highest chances of being saved are those seen by the dentist and returned to their socket within 1 hour of being knocked out.
See your dentist right away. Until you reach your dentist’s office, to relieve pain, apply a cold compress to the outside of the mouth or cheek in the affected area. Take an over-the-counter pain reliever (such as Tylenol or Advil) if needed.
Please see your dentist as soon as they can get you in. Sometimes temporary restorations can be placed in the interim while you are waiting for your reserved appointment for either a crown or new filling to be placed. An appointment to assess the broken tooth is always required before work can be done.
If the crown falls off, make an appointment to see your dentist as soon as possible and bring the crown with you. If you can’t get to the dentist right away and the tooth is causing pain, use a cotton swab to apply a little clove oil to the sensitive area (clove oil can be purchased at your local drug store or in the spice aisle of your grocery store). If possible, slip the crown back over the tooth. Before doing so, coat the inner surface with an over-the-counter dental cement, toothpaste, or denture adhesive, to help hold the crown in place. Do not use super glue!
If you are losing your teeth or have already lost one or more teeth, dental implants can replace your missing teeth. They can make you feel and function almost like your own teeth.
Your dentist will place a small metal peg about the size of 1/4 of a peanut into the jawbone where your tooth used to be. It is a minor and quick dental surgery and can be easily done with local freezing. The appointment can be as short as one hour and normally involves minimal discomfort after the freezing goes away. You may only need to take some Advil to control the discomfort for a day or two. The implant is then left alone for a few months to integrate with the jawbone. After 3-4 months, the dentist will take an impression of the implant and a new tooth will fabricate and connected to the implant. You will have a brand new artificial tooth that becomes part of your body!
Dental implants have been in use for at least 40 years and nowadays are considered the standard of care to replace missing teeth. Billions of dental implants have been placed in patients around the world. It has been proven to be a very safe and effective treatment option for dental patients with very few cases of allergy or other adverse reactions reported.
As dental implant treatment becomes commonplace, more and more dental insurances are covering it. However, it is prudent to check out your dental plan to be sure and our dental team is happy to do this for you upon your request.
If it is a straight forward dental implant placement, the procedure is usually carried out under local numbing the area and the patient does not feel discomfort during the procedure. After the numbing wears off, the dental patient may need to take some pain medication such as Advil to alleviate the discomfort for a couple of days. Usually no need to miss work the day after the surgery. However, in situations where the patient has lost the tooth/teeth for many years, the jaw bone or the gum tissue around the area may also be lacking. In this situation bone graft or gum graft treatment will be needed in addition to implant placement. The discomfort involved with bone graft/gum graft procedures are normally more pronounced and swelling is often observed for a week after the surgery. However, a stronger pain medication can help patients tolerate the procedure well. 2 or 3 days off work following the bone graft/gum graft surgery is generally advised.
It all depends on how nervous you are as a dental patient. Most patients receiving dental implant placement do not need any form of sedation. But we do offer different sedation options to our patients, namely nitrous (also known as laughing gas), oral sedation and IV conscious sedation.
Fees can vary depending on the brands of implant used, the level of implant training and experience the dentist has gone through etc. In Calgary or Alberta, fees for an implant placement ranges from $1000 to $3000 and the tooth connected to the implant is additional which normally costs about $1400 to $1800. The dentists in our clinic currently charge $2200 for the first implant and each additional implant if done at the same surgery is at $1800. This fee schedule will give you the best value in considering the extensive implant training and experience our dentists have gone through. Also the implant brand we use is the premium Swiss made Straumann implant which can be $350 higher than some other brands in the market.
Natural teeth may not last forever neither do dental implants. But if dental implants are done right and the patient is an appropriate candidate and takes care of them, they can easily be expected to last a lifetime. This is one of the reasons that selecting a good dentist who knows what he/she is doing is very important.
Most people are suitable for having dental implants but some medical conditions may make implant treatment not suitable. This is why a good review of your dental and medical history by the dentist is needed prior to receiving treatment. At Beddington Dental, we offer free implant consultation and even free 3-D X-ray to anyone that is interested to consider this treatment option.
The appointment normally takes an hour or two depending how many dental implants are being placed or if any bone graft or gum graft procedures are involved. What are the risks of dental implant treatment? Like any other medical surgeries, dental implant surgery risks include swelling, pain, infection, and sometimes numbness of part of the face, temporary or permanent . Luckily these complications can be handled well and quickly by an experienced and well trained dentist. Sometimes the implant placed fails to integrate with the jawbone. In this case, our dentists will redo the surgery at no extra fee to the patient.
It can be as short as 3 months to as long as a year and a half depending on how complicated the procedures are involved. The longer you have been missing teeth the more complicated the procedure will be .So please do not delay replacing your missing teeth.
Experience in dental implant surgery and how much continuing education each year the dentist is committed to is an important factor to consider when you choose your dental implant dentist.
If you have misaligned teeth, you may have been putting off orthodontic treatment for one reason or another. Maybe you don’t think that a few teeth out of place is a big deal. Or maybe you don’t want to deal with a mouth full of metal. The fact is that there are many benefits to having straight teeth beside a more attractive smile. And, with advancements in dentistry, a new treatment is now available that can straighten teeth without cumbersome metal wires and brackets. Beddington Dental offers the Invisalign® treatment in Calgary to produce straight, beautiful smiles.
Invisalign® is a system of clear aligners that are worn in a specific order to gradually straighten teeth. Each aligner is custom-fit to your mouth and applies a specific and steady pressure on the teeth to change their position along the gumline.
While traditional metal braces are still a popular option and are very effective, Invisalign® offers many benefits.
Straight teeth benefit your oral health because they are easier to clean, making it easier to prevent cavities from forming.
You will need to visit Beddington Dental for an initial consultation to have your teeth examined. During this visit, your dentist will create a treatment plan, mapping out the movement of the teeth and even providing a preview of the expected results. Impressions will then be taken of your teeth (using either a putty or digital technology) to create the custom aligners
For successful treatment, you will need to wear your aligners for 20 to 22 hours a day, changing aligners approximately weekly, according to your treatment plan. You will need to visit your dentist periodically to ensure that treatment is progressing as expected. The aligners can be taken out when brushing and flossing your teeth. When cleaning your teeth, you can also clean the aligners by brushing them gently and giving them a rinse.
Treatment time depends on the severity of the misalignment, but the average treatment time is 12 months. Once it has been completed, you will need to wear a retainer to prevent the teeth from shifting back into their original position.
To learn more about the Invisalign® treatment and whether or not it is the treatment for you, make an appointment at Beddington Dental in Calgary.
Many people are born with too many teeth and too little space in their mouth. If your jawbone is too small to accommodate wisdom teeth, your teeth may become impacted and trapped. Impacted and trapped teeth cause pain and the roots may disrupt neighboring teeth. Fortunately, our team of general dentists can remove extra teeth and prevent pain. Removal is one of the easiest preventative measures for wisdom teeth complications. Our team will examine your teeth to determine which ones (if any) need removal. If you have enough space in your mouth, we won’t remove the wisdom teeth. Instead, you can schedule regular visits to ensure your wisdom teeth haven’t moved.
Our team is able to meet the needs of Calgary’s residents. We have a large office that can accommodate you, so you don’t have to wait long for service. We also offer extended hours so you can fit an appointment into your busy schedule. For your convenience, we also have staff that can speak Arabic, Greek, French, Hindi, Punjabi, and Spanish.
If you would like more information about our wisdom teeth extractions and dental surgery in Calgary, contact us at 403-275-4000. We will set up a consultation so you can visit our team. After we have completed the x-rays, we will schedule a future appointment.
While many people will have no trouble with their wisdom teeth, these teeth are often removed to prevent more serious issues like an abscess or cyst. These teeth generally begin to surface in the late teens, to early 20s, and many times, they become impacted as they develop, growing sideways into the other teeth or angled forward.
Wisdom teeth may erupt from the gum line or may still be set in the jaw. Teeth that are only partially erupted may present other issues as these teeth are difficult to clean and care for. Extractions are typically handled by an oral and maxillofacial surgeon. Some extractions are done as a preventative measure to safeguard against changes in the alignment of the teeth during orthodontics or more serious complications.
Dry socket: While dry socket will generally heal on its own, consult your dentist to expedite the healing process and to ensure there is no risk of infection.
Nerve injury: The lingual and inferior alveolar nerves run near the surgical site and supply sensation and taste to the area. While nerve injuries are often temporary, nerve damage should never be overlooked, and you should contact your dentist as soon as possible.
Damage to prior dental work: If your procedure has damaged any prior dental work, contact your dentist. This is a risk involved during any surgical procedure.
Damage to surrounding areas: While it is rare, an injury may occur around the sinus cavity or jaw depending on how the tooth was extracted. Any injury should be treated as a medical emergency. Again this too is an inherent risk involved in oral surgery.
Your experience with oral surgery will vary based on how complicated the extraction performed is.
