Your Emergency Dentistry Services in NW Calgary


When you have a dental emergency, you can count on Northland Village Dental Centre in NW Calgary. 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

We provide emergency dentistry services, including severe tooth pains. Contact us now.

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 or fever or headache,  contact us.  Depending on your situation, you may require emergency treatment or general treatment such as a cavity filling or root canal.

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. 


Symptoms associated with tooth infection are:

  • Severe tooth pain
  • Swelling of the cheek
  • Sensitivity
  • Fever


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

What is Considered a Dental Emergency ?

What is Not Considered a Dental Emergency


While some dental problems are considered dental emergencies, some problems don't require you to see a dentist urgently. For example, if you have food lodged between your teeth or there's a small chip or crack in your tooth, you can book an appointment during normal office hours. Some dental issues that are not considered as an emergency are: 

  • Lost filling, crown, or bridge

  • Dull toothache

  • Food lodged between teeth

  • A small chip or crack in the tooth

How Do I Know if It's a Dental Emergency?

Commonly Asked Questions :  Emergency Dentisty

Some commonly asked questions are 

  • How Long Will My Oral Surgery Last?
    The duration of oral surgeries depends on the nature of the procedure. However, most surgeries don't take more than a couple of hours.
  • How Long Will It Take to Recover from My Oral Surgery?
    While it takes around a week to completely recover from oral surgery, you can resume your routine within a couple of days.
  • Is Oral Surgery Painful?
    Oral surgery procedures are not painful because of the use of anesthesia. For a few days after surgery, you can expect discomfort, which painkillers will help control.
  • Can I Smoke after My Tooth Extraction?
    Smoking could interfere with recovery after tooth extraction and may cause severe complications. For instance, it can dislodge the blood clot, forming a dry socket. For that reason, it is recommended to refrain from smoking to facilitate a speedy recovery.
