Emergency Dental Care
YIKES! If you’ve landed here you might be in trouble. If you have toothache, a broken tooth or you require emergency dental care, please call and see if we can see you right away. Many times same day appointments are available, let us help you!
A few tips to help in a pinch for:
A knocked out tooth
(adult tooth) try not to handle the root surface, rinse tooth with clean water if dirty, put tooth in milk and bring to dentist as soon as possible. (baby tooth) Leave tooth out of socket, apply pressure to wound to control bleeding and see dentist as soon as possible.
Broken tooth / rough edge
Cover rough surface with chewing gum or orthodontic wax (covers braces) to reduce sensitivity and keep tongue from rubbing. Then see a dentist as soon as possible.
Swelling / fever / toothache / pain
If you can’t get to dental care within a couple of hours please seek emergency care at a hospital, dental infections can be life threatening.
Call 604-277-2223, our after hours emergency number will be on the answering service.
While I hate seeing people in pain from a toothache, I love making them feel better. Nothing is worse than that helpless feeling of an ache not letting you eat or rest. There is no shame or embarrassment here with having a dental problem. It is my job to help you out!
