Common Signs You Need Urgent Dental Care During COVID-19

Having a dental emergency or injury during the time of COVID-19 can be a worrisome experience. While we have suspended all non-emergency dental care and services until further notice, Dr. Popp is only a phone call away if you have an urgent dental emergency.

Do you have a dental emergency, such as jaw pain, a tooth abscess, or toothache? While some patients may put off seeing their dentists for such problems, whether it’s due to a busy schedule or worry about costs, this will not only harm your oral and overall health, but increase your long-term dental fees.

Some of the great benefits of visiting your dentist for emergency dental care include:

  • Prevention of tooth loss
  • Pain relief
  • Lower risk of an oral infection
  • Lower future dental costs
  • Improved aesthetic appearance
  • Enhanced overall health

Dental Emergency Treatment and Care During COVID-19

As we navigate these trying times, our main priority is the health and well-being of those we serve and love. As mandated by the Alberta Dental Association, we have suspended all non-emergency dental care to limit the spread of the COVID-19 virus.

However, we understand that dental emergencies can spring up at any time, and our Calgary dentist is available to assist you with any urgent conditions or concerns.

How Do I Know if I Have a Dental Emergency?

In dentistry, an emergency could include an injury to your mouth and face, a severe infection (such as an abscess or swelling), bleeding that continues for a long time, or pain which you aren’t able to manage with over-the-counter medication such as Tylenol or Advil.

Other dental emergencies may include:

  • A knocked out tooth
  • Gum infection with pain or swelling
  • Tooth or jaw pain that doesn’t stop

If you suspect you have a dental emergency, contact oru Calgary dentist. He/she will ask you some questions over the phone to determine whether or not you need to be seen.


Non-Emergency Dental Procedures

Non-emergency dental procedures, or treatments that can be rescheduled include (but are not limited to):

  • Replacement of teeth with implants or bridges
  • Removal of teeth that aren’t causing any pain, swelling, or discomfort
  • Restorative dentistry (eg. dental fillings)
  • Teeth whitening or veneer treatments
  • Periodic dental exams
  • Routine dental cleanings and other preventive therapies, such as fluoride applications
