Accidents happen when you least expect them. Whether you bit down too hard on a solid piece of food or your little one chipped their tooth at basketball practice, we’re always ready to service your smile at a moment’s notice. Depending on your dental emergency, you may experience pain and heavy bleeding, or you may have no symptoms at all. But if one or more of your teeth are damaged in any way, it’s essential to see a dentist as soon as possible. There may be unseen damage that only a dentist can identify.
When a dental emergency strikes, don’t wait to be seen. At Galaxy Dental in Calgary, we’re open 7 days a week and happily accept walk-ins and same-day appointments. Whatever your emergency may be, we’re ready and equipped to take care of your smile.
Here’s what to expect from our emergency dental care
During your exam, we’ll assess the severity of your issue. We may need to take x-rays to get a better idea of the extent of the damage. Once we understand the situation, we’ll sit down to discuss treatment options with full transparency.
Whatever your emergency may be, we promise to provide timely, quality care to set you up for a speedy recovery. Dental emergencies are stressful enough. Our team helps to remove the hassle of handling these situations by seamlessly guiding you from diagnosis to treatment to full recovery.
There are a number of different kinds of dental emergencies. Cracked, broken, loose, or knocked-out teeth caused by impact injuries during contact sports, car accidents, or a bad fall are considered emergencies.
Other common dental emergencies are caused by the failure of an older piece of dental work. If your dental crown gets pulled out while you’re eating or if your filling is becoming loose, these situations are also considered a dental emergency.
Infected teeth or severe toothaches are also reasons to come in for an emergency appointment. In general, a dental emergency is any dental issue causing you pain and discomfort that you can’t treat on your own.
When you have a dental emergency, the financial aspect of things can add to the stress of the situation. At Galaxy Dental, we do our best to take the hassle out of the process and make your treatment more affordable. After your treatment, we’ll assess your coverage and out-of-pocket costs and find the best way to apply your benefits. We also accept many different payment methods for anyone without dental insurance and offer financing options to make your emergency treatment more friendly to your budget.
Many dental emergencies can be prevented by simple routine visits to the dentist, especially those involving tooth pain. While we have the ability to address your dental emergency when it happens, “a little caution outflanks a large cavalry” or large tooth pain in your case.
Also when a dental emergency does arise, you will already have a level of comfort with us developed over previous general dentistry visits.
