Emergency Dental Care in Red Deer County AB
Emergencies can and do happen. If you find yourself with a dental emergency out of the blue, don’t hesitate to give our Central Alberta dental office a call anytime, 403-343-8622. (If your emergency occurs after regular clinic hours, please follow the prompts on the voicemail.)
Dr. Whitehead and our team will assess the area of concern by performing an emergency exam and taking any necessary x-rays and photos in order to make a diagnosis and come up with a treatment plan specific to your needs. They will discuss treatment options with you and take care of your dental treatment as soon as possible. Sometimes an emergency requires an initial emergency exam appointment as well as another appointment to complete necessary treatment, and sometimes it can be taken care of in one visit; either way, you can be sure to receive the same level of genuine care and treatment here at Gasoline Alley Dental in Red Deer County for your emergency dental needs.
After Dr. Whitehead performs an initial emergency exam, you will be given as many options for treatment specific to the area that is causing concern as possible. In some cases, one of those options may be a root canal, which is an essential procedure that can save your natural tooth.
If you are curious about how a root canal works, just ask! Dr. Whitehead, your Central Alberta Dentist, is happy to walk you through the details and answer any questions or concerns you might have. We believe patient education is a significant part of the general dentistry services we provide at Gasoline Alley Dental.
Although we hate to see teeth go, sometimes extractions are necessary as a result of an emergency or as part of a treatment plan. Before your extraction, Dr. Whitehead and our staff will discuss options available to you to replace the vacancy made by the tooth, such as an implant, bridge, partial, or space maintainer.
At Gasoline Alley Dental, we believe in providing as many options as possible so that you can make an informed decision regarding your treatment; after all, they’re your teeth!
For our patients that might need a little help relaxing with procedures like extractions, we have sedation options available. Feel free to ask us more about which dental services are available to you at your next appointment. Click to email or call us at (403) 343-8622 to book an appointment.
