Your Calgary Emergency Dentist
Dental emergencies require immediate attention by emergency dentist Calgary, Dr. Curtis Westersund. We will be able to ease your pain, treat your trauma, and give you peace of mind.
What is a dental emergency and why see a dentist ASAP?
There are a number of situations that warrant a visit to a dentist.
A severe tooth ache
A toothache can be the result of decay or dental injury. The sooner you see us the better. Out Dental Emergency Downtown Calgary clinic can help you to get relief from the severe teeth ache. We will treat the issue as soon as possible so you can go back to enjoying your life.
Soft Tissue Injuries
Soft tissue injuries aren’t limited to food burns. They can include what look like rashes, general or localized inflammation, or round nodules. Patients should see us if they notice any soft tissue changes. These issues could be signs of a serious systemic condition or oral cancer. So when a patient see the sign , he should get Urgent Dental Care Calgary as early as possible.
A chipped or broken tooth
This could be due to a number of things:
- a sports injury
- an uneven bite
- or because fillings are starting to break down
Without the necessary tooth repair from a walk in dental clinic the tooth is likely to breakdown even more, resulting in pain and decay. The main reason we want to see our patients is to prevent further damage. Each of these situations can lead to decay, pain, and even severe abscess.
Our Emergency Dentist in Calgary is ready to help you regarding this dental problem. We provide emergency service, are a direct billing dentist office, and Dr. Westersund is also a sedation dentist.
