At Smile Dental Group, we believe that your oral health should be a top priority. Emergency dentistry near you is just as crucial as having an emergency room or urgent care facility nearby. Our dentists in Burnaby, BC, work hard to offer you care during regular office hours when you need it.

What does the term “emergency dentistry” mean?

The goal of Smile Dental Group is to emphasize that not every dental issue is an emergency. If you need a cleaning, x-rays, or a consultation about cosmetic dental options, please make an appointment with our friendly team.

We recommend contacting one of our emergency dentists near you if you’re experiencing any of the following issues.

  • Swelling of the gums
  • Severe toothache
  • Lost or missing crown
  • Abscess on the gums
  • Oral bleeding
  • Moderate to major pain in the jaw
  • Trauma to the mouth or jaw

Oral pain might also indicate the presence of other medical issues. One of the signs of a heart attack is severe jaw pain, often accompanied by pain in one arm and between the shoulders. Please phone 911 for quick assistance if you are experiencing severe symptoms.

What Should You Do If You Have a Dental Emergency

The top thing you can do is avoid a dental emergency before it happens. One way to do this is to maintain a comprehensive oral health regimen. This routine includes brushing twice a day for two minutes with a soft toothbrush. We recommend flossing twice a day and brushing with fluoride toothpaste to avoid bacteria and deterioration.

If you have a dental emergency, give us a call. Your treatment plan will be based on your specific circumstances. If feasible, we will assist you over the phone. You will require in-person treatment for some more catastrophic injuries and crises.

Do not eat or drink anything if you are in discomfort or bleeding. Our goal is to hear from you as quickly as possible so that we can install a treatment plant before things get worse. Please save our office phone number on your phone so that you may contact us promptly in the event of an emergency. Please do not hesitate to contact us if you have a dental emergency.
