Emergency Dental Services

A dental emergency is a painful, terrifying, and often expensive ordeal. For example, a fractured tooth can easily be caused by tooth grinding, eating hard foods, severe trauma, etc. At this stage, ensuring the affected teeth have the best chance at survival means immediate treatment is a must.

We offer sedation options for those who find themselves worrying too much about the emergency procedure ahead. Our goal is not only to tend to your mouth but your mind as well; putting it at ease as much as we can by providing you with a safe and relaxed environment. While most nervous patients only require minor sedation to get them through a procedure, many find that they fall asleep anyway, simply because of how relaxed they are.

Call Delta Dental immediately if you experience:

  • Severe toothache
  • Chipped or broken teeth
  • High sensitivity to heat and cold
  • Lost filling or abscessed tooth
  • Emergency problem in teeth or jaw region

Here are some tips for common dental emergencies:

  1. For a knocked-out permanent or adult tooth, keep it moist at all times. If you can, try placing the tooth back in the socket without touching the root. If that’s not possible, place it in between your cheek and gums, in milk, or use a tooth preservation product that has the CDA Seal of Acceptance. Then, get to Delta Dental Office on Lougheed Hwy in Dental, BC right away.
  2. For a cracked tooth, immediately rinse the mouth with warm water to clean the area. Put cold compresses on the face to keep any swelling down.
  3. If you bite your tongue or lip, clean the area gently with water and apply a cold compress.
  4. For toothaches, rinse the mouth with warm water to clean it out. Gently use dental floss to remove any food caught between the teeth. Do not put aspirin on the aching tooth or gum tissues.
  5. For objects stuck in the mouth, try to gently remove with floss but do not try to remove it with sharp or pointed instruments.

When you have a dental emergency, it’s important to visit our Delta Dental Office on 110-8295 120th Street, Delta, BC V4C 6R1 or an emergency room hospital as soon as possible.

Here are some simple precautions you can take to avoid accident and injury to the teeth:

  • Wear a mouthguard when participating in sports or recreational activities.
  • Avoid chewing ice, popcorn kernels and hard candy, all of which can crack a tooth.
  • Use scissors, NEVER your teeth, to cut things.
