We consider a dental emergency to be any situation where you are experiencing pain or discomfort in your teeth, gum tissue or surrounding bone and jaw joints. If you are experiencing pain from a sudden or a lingering toothache, fracture or knock-out tooth, or have been involved in an accident that involves your teeth and/or jaw should be treated by a dentist immediately.
The Dental Team at Northland Smiles accommodates emergency dental patients by reserving time in our daily schedule specifically for dental emergencies. We are also pleased to accommodate both existing and new patients who are unable to see their regular dentist in a timely manner. To help you before you arrive at our NW Calgary dental office, we will offer our assistance over the phone to advise you on how to remain as comfortable as possible until you are able to be seen at our North Calgary Dental Office.

Preventing a dental emergency one of the best ways to avoid accidental dental emergencies. Booking an appointment at Northland Smiles on a regular basis for a comprehensive dental exam helps us check for signs of weakened teeth, loosened or aging restorations and early the signs of infection that may suggest the presence of infection.
Patients who participate in sporting activities that could cause a dental emergency are encouraged, regardless of their age, to wear a custom mouth guard while playing contact sports. A large percentage of dental injuries are related to sports and wearing a custom mouth guard prevents many of these injuries from occurring.
We understand that a dental emergency requires immediate care and attention and North Calgary Emergency Dentistry Services are only one of the many general dental services that we offer here at Northland Smiles.
Our practice always welcomes new patients — no referral is required!
