At Summit Dental, we consider that any situation in which you are experiencing pain or discomfort qualifies as a dental emergency and should be treated as such.
Since a dental emergency can be a frightening experience. If you are experiencing pain from a sudden or a lingering toothache, a fractured or knocked-out tooth, or an accident that involves the teeth and/or jaw should be treated by your dentist immediately.
At Summit Dental, we reserve time in our daily schedule for dental emergencies and will accommodate both existing patients and those that are unable to see their regular dentist in a timely manner. We will provide you with assistance over the phone and advise you on how to remain as comfortable as possible until you are able to be seen by one of our dentists.
The following are the most common reasons for patients to call our South Calgary Emergency Dental number:

We’d like to see all of our patients avoid facing the stress of a dental emergency.
The best way to prevent dental emergencies from occurring is to see your Summit Dental dentist regularly for dental exams. This may be the most important preventative action you can take. During your dental exam, our dentists are naturally checking for signs of weakened teeth, loosened or aging restorations and early signs of inflammation that would indicate the presence of infection and the possibility of periodontal disease.
Another important preventative action you can take to avoid dental emergencies is to wear a properly fitting mouth guard while playing contact sports. Wearing a properly fitting mouth guard can prevent many of dental injuries.
