At Fresh Dental, we understand that dental emergencies can be stressful. We are here to ensure the process goes as smoothly as possible. If you are experiencing a dental emergency, please call us at (780) 249-2500 or request an appointment online.

When it comes to dental emergencies, time is a crucial factor. After you contact us, please follow the instructions listed below to ease your discomfort and set yourself up for a successful treatment.

Knocked Out Permanent Tooth

  • Find the tooth. Handle the tooth by the crown, not the root portion.
  • You may briefly rinse the tooth with saline or milk, but DO NOT clean or handle the tooth unnecessarily.
  • Inspect the tooth for fractures.
  • If it is not broken, try to reinsert it in its socket. Have the patient keep the tooth in place by biting on gauze.
  • If you cannot reinsert the tooth, transport the tooth in a cup containing milk. Time is critical. Seek immediate dental care!
  • Note: Primary (baby) teeth are not generally replaced in the socket as this can damage the permanent tooth underneath, however, prompt care by a dentist is recommended.

Broken Tooth

  • Locate and save any broken tooth fragments.
  • Immediate dental attention is necessary.

Broken Braces and Wires

  • If a broken appliance can be removed easily, take it out. If it cannot, cover the sharp or protruding portion with wax.
  • If a wire is stuck in the gum, cheek or tongue, do not remove it. Take the patient to a dentist immediately.

Cut or Bitten Tongue, Lip or Cheek

  • Rinse the mouth or area of injury with warm salt water or hydrogen peroxide diluted with water (50% water & 50% hydrogen peroxide).
  • If the patient’s lip or cheek is swollen, apply cold compresses.
  • Seek immediate dental care.

Food stuck in gum or between teeth

  • Clean the affected area thoroughly.

  • Seek immediate dental care.
