Title: Bennett Dental – An Emergency Dental Clinic in Sherwood Park


1
Bennett Dental An Emergency Dental Clinic in
Sherwood Park

2
  • Our team provides same-day emergency dental
    care. The Bennett Emergency Dental Sherwood Park
    team is well-trained to take care of such
    situations.

3
Severe mouth pain
  • If you are in immediate pain, you may need to
    seek immediate care. In some cases, pain can
    cause nausea, impede motor skills and prevent you
    from driving. Prior to visiting, please contact
    us by phone immediately or have someone drive you
    to our clinic. 
  • If you are bleeding, we advise call emergency
    medical services at 911 or Strathcona Community
    Hospital at 780-449-5380 (open 24 hours).

Acute toothaches or broken teeth
  • Intense pain can follow an injury to teeth that
    have been chipped, broken, or dislocated. It is
    important that you visit an emergency dental
    clinic where immediate care can be provided to
    lessen injury and prevent further damage of the
    tooth. 
  • Toothaches can also be caused by tooth decay,
    abscesses, gum disease, or damaged fillings,
    mouth infections, grinding teeth (bruxism), an
    abnormal bite and tooth eruptions (in the case of
    babies / young-children)

5
  • In other cases, a patient can experience pains
    that feel like toothaches, but are in fact caused
    by TMJ (Temporomandibular Joint Disorder), sinus
    infections, ear infections, or muscular tensions.
    Pain in the teeth and jaw areas can also be a
    symptom of heart disease, and our dentists will
    refer you to a physician if they feel you are at
    risk.

6
Toothache Treatment
  • After being admitted, your dentist will perform
    a thorough oral examination to determine the
    cause of your pain. If required, an x-ray may
    need to be undertaken though this is a safe and
    normal procedure. For infected teeth, this may
    require tooth extraction or a root canal
    procedure. Pain medication and antibiotics may
    also be prescribed to assist with healing and to
    provide you relief. 

7
  • Bennett Dental Sherwood Park will determine what
    immediate emergency treatments are required and
    follow-up appointments would address treating the
    root issue, stabilizing, and putting in place a
    treatment plan. 

8
Chipped, Cracked or Broken Teeth Treatment
  • Once you have had an initial oral examination at
    an emergency dental clinic, they will determine
    if immediate treatment is required or schedule an
    appointment. You may be prescribed pain
    medication or antibiotics. In most situations for
    damaged teeth, an appointment will need to be
    scheduled so a full-procedure can be
    administered. 

9
Common procedures
  • Filling if there is only small portion of
    surface damage or chipping of the tooth enamel,
    your tooth can be repaired with a filling. For
    visible teeth Bennett Dental can apply
    tooth-coloured composite resins as part of the
    filling process known as bonding. 
  • Veneers  for larger visible chips and
    fractures, restorative materials such as plastic
    composites and porcelain can be used to protect
    and improve the aesthetics of a tooth.

10
  • Dental Crowns For areas that have seen
    significant tooth decay, we can cap your tooth
    with a crown that will protect it and improve
    aesthetic.
  • Root Canal In the case for teeth where the
    damage is significant enough that it has
    penetrated the protective enamel, exposing the
    pulp, a root canal may need to be performed.

11
Removing Stuck Objects from Teeth and Gums
  • On occasion, a piece of food or foreign object
    can get stuck in-between teeth or gums. Typical
    food objects include popcorn hulls, meat fibers,
    and seeds. In some cases, pencil ends,
    toothpicks, and other materials can get embedded
    and become difficult to remove. Generally, these
    situations can be taken care of on your own, but
    if you find the situation worsening, causing
    pain, then we recommend arranging an appointment
    where our team has the expertise to help.

12
Cuts and Tissue Injuries
  • For patients who have sustained cuts,
    lacerations, scrapes and other soft-tissue wounds
    we can assess and treat the entire mouth area
    including cheek, and lips. We will also look for
    any damage to teeth, musculature and bones. In
    the majority of cases, superficial wounds will
    heal on their own, but certain cuts may require
    stitches and / or antibiotics.
