Dental Emergency? 

Your Emergency Dentistry Services in NW Calgary


When you need professional attention for a dental emergency, you can count on Northland Village Dental Centre in NW Calgary to help with prompt and reliable emergency dentistry services. We understand that certain dental issues should not be ignored. If left unattended, they tend to quickly worsen and lead to more serious oral problems. Some dental emergencies are: 

  • Severe tooth pains and aches 

  • A chipped or fractured tooth 

  • Tissue or gum injury 

  • Facial pain or soreness 

  • Swollen gums and lost fillings

Our dentists at Northland Village Dental Centre have the experience and knowledge to provide emergency dentistry services, including severe tooth pains. Contact us now if you have a dental emergency. ​ 

From a severe toothache to a broken tooth, several situations can be classified as a dental emergency: 


Tooth Broken Due to Repeated or Large Fillings

After repeated fillings, or if the fillings are especially large, it's possible for a tooth to break. Fillings often require removing portions of a tooth, but this can have the unfortunate consequence of breaking the tooth or causing the filling to fall out.


Acute Pulpitis Causing Severe Toothache

The inflammation of a tooth's pulp is also known as acute pulpitis, and it's usually caused by trauma or tooth decay. If a change in air temperature triggers pain, immediate dental care may be necessary.


Tooth Abscess

A tooth abscess is caused by the infection of the tooth's root, and this can cause intermittent pain. Additional symptoms include gum line swelling, swelling of the patient's face and sometimes even the loosening of the tooth. While medication can help relieve pain temporarily, dental treatment is also required.


Gum Abscess

In the case of a gum abscess, food has gotten caught between the tooth and the gum, and has caused an infection in the gum. The symptoms of this can include bleeding and swollen gums, and it's important to receive dental treatment quickly.

Swollen gums and lost fillings

Swollen gums and lost fillings are common dental emergencies that require immediate attention. Our dentists can address swollen gums through effective treatments, while lost fillings can be replaced promptly to prevent further damage to the affected tooth 


Struck a sharp object between teeth 

Occasionally, sharp objects may get lodged between teeth, causing pain or discomfort. Emergency dentists can safely remove the object without causing additional harm to the gums or teeth. 


If you are experiencing one of these dental emergencies, contact us immediately to book an appointment.



Tooth Pain Treatment

Have you ever dealt with unrelenting tooth pain? Tooth pain can be caused by various reasons such as tooth decay, an abscessed tooth, a broken tooth, wearing down of teeth due to continuous motion or clenching teeth, or gum infection. If you experience symptoms like severe tooth pain, bad breath, or tooth pain accompanied by fever or headache, get in touch with a dentist. Depending on your situation, you may require emergency treatment or general treatment such as a cavity filling or root canal.

Most Common Reasons for Tooth Pain


Tooth Infection Treatment

Sometimes, tooth pain happens due to an infection requiring expert attention. A tooth infection occurs when bacteria get into the tooth through a chip, crack, or cavity. A tooth infection can occur for numerous reasons, such as poor dental hygiene, a high-sugar diet or even a dry mouth. Dry mouth can be due to ageing or side effects of any medication. 


Symptoms associated with tooth infection are:

  • Severe tooth pain
  • Bad breath
  • A foul taste in the mouth
  • Swelling of the cheek
  • Sensitivity
  • Fever

If you're dealing with any of these symptoms, reach out to Northland Village Dental Centre immediately.
