Skilled Emergency Care When You Need It

Dental emergencies can happen to anyone at any time and leave you with more questions than answers. Our North Vancouver general dentist and their team work hard to schedule your appointment as soon as possible. Depending on the volume of patients at our practice, we’ll try to get you on the same day as your phone call.

When you contact our office, one of our team members will assess your dental situation to determine the extent of your emergency. We’ll provide you with instructions on how to care for your smile before your emergency visit. Additionally, our staff is more than happy to answer any questions you may have.

What’s Considered a Dental Emergency?

Dental emergencies can occur because of accidents or natural wear and tear on your teeth and dental structures. If you experience a dental emergency, it’s crucial that you receive treatment to protect your oral health and safeguard your smile from significant problems. Our North Vancouver general dentist strives to preserve your teeth and views extraction as a last resort if no other option is viable.

Dental emergencies include, but are not limited to:

  • Knocked out teeth
  • Painful toothaches from tooth decay or infection
  • Severely fractured teeth
  • Lost, cracked, or dislodged restorations

Although not every toothache is considered a dental emergency, it’s vital that you schedule a visit to examine your tooth.

Emergency Dental Services We Offer

At Blue Sky Dental, we use efficient dental treatments and procedures to address your unique oral emergency. If you’re dealing with dental pain, we’ll work hard to relieve it. We’ll also ask you questions about your dental emergency. How long have you been dealing with your tooth pain? Did you lose your dislodged dental restoration, or do you still have it? Our team will then use dental diagnostic technology, like x-rays, to get to the root cause of your issue. Some of the emergency dental services our practice provides include:

Root Canal Therapy: Your tooth is durable and can last decades of repeated use. However, it’s susceptible to decay and trauma. Your tooth’s pulp contains sensitive nerves and blood vessels. When your tooth has an opening, bacteria have an opportunity to enter its pulp chamber and lead to infection. If a tooth infection is left untreated, it can enter your bloodstream and cause severe health complications. Our dental team can perform emergency root canal therapy to provide you with pain relief and potentially spare your tooth from extraction.
Extractions: If your tooth is severely damaged or decayed and can’t be saved, it may be necessary to perform an extraction to restore your oral health. Using time-tested techniques, our North Vancouver general dentist will gently remove your tooth while working to help you feel as comfortable and relaxed as possible. Once the extraction is complete, our staff will explain your restoration options and help you decide which one is ideal for restoring the functionality of your smile.
Restoration Repair: Restorations, like crowns and bridges, are designed to withstand repeated biting and chewing. They can also hold up to brushing and flossing. However, your restoration may become dislodged over time. It’s crucial that you call our office as soon as possible so that we can place your restoration and restore your tooth’s functionality. We recommend purchasing dental adhesive from a pharmacy or grocery store to help temporarily keep your restoration in place to prevent severe discomfort from chewing and biting.
