Get Assistance During Dental Emergencies in Winnipeg, MB

Dental Emergencies at Lakewood Dental Centre Read Transcript

It’s important to contact your dentist as quickly as possible during dental emergencies – it can make the difference between a saved tooth and a lost tooth. Our dentists at Lakewood Dental Centre want you and your family to know that they are just a call away: (204) 977-8515.

If possible, our Winnipeg, MB dentist office can get you in for a same-day appointment during a dental emergency for an assessment regarding your condition. We can often see you at short notice, thanks to our three dentists and extended hours. Our office is open as early as 7 a.m. and as late as 8 p.m.

Some common dental emergency scenarios are:

  • You’ve had a tooth knocked out
  • Your tooth has been fractured, chipped, or cracked
  • Your tooth is loose
  • You’re having a severe toothache

If you’re uncertain whether what you’re experiencing is an emergency, you should call us. It’s definitely a good idea to contact us if you have a toothache or one of the other conditions above. One of our helpful team members will guide you through the next steps you should take.

Prevent Dental Emergency Situations

While emergencies can happen quite unexpectedly, there are measures you can take to reduce your risks.

  • A severe toothache can often be avoided with regular teeth cleanings and dental exams.
  • To prevent chipped teeth, cracked teeth, and fractures, do not use your teeth as a tool for opening anything. You should also avoid chewing on hard things like ice.
  • According to the Canadian Dental Hygienists Association, participating in sports without an athletic mouthguard can make your risk of injury 1.5 to 2 times greater. Lakewood Dental Centre can you fit you with a custom athletic mouthguard.
