At Kingsview Dental Calgary, as a Dentist, we offer this advice: if it hurts, it requires emergency dentistry. This is because even injuries that seem small or superficial can affect the living tissues inside the teeth. We care about our patients and want to make sure we are available to help you with any emergency dentistry issues you may be experiencing.
Even if you aren’t in much pain, any structural damage to a tooth — from a sports injury, for example — should be considered an emergency. Chips or fractures can affect the living tissue inside the tooth, causing more problems in the future.
The same is true of a lost filling or crown. Even if you don’t have any symptoms, the tooth has lost its support and it could easily become weaker. Pieces could break off or crumble, and you would need more extensive treatment. If you see your dentist right away, there’s a good chance they will be able to repair the damage with minimal treatment.
Dear Valued Patient,
First and foremost, we want to extend our gratitude to all of our patients and community members for understanding the changes we are having to implement because of current events.
The Alberta Dental Association and College has mandated that dental offices only provide emergency services due to COVID-19.
Your health and safety is our priority. In that light, and in an effort to keep everyone safe, we have suspended normal dental care at our office, BUT we are still AVAILABLE to treat DENTAL EMERGENCIES! The last thing we'd want at this time is for patients with a serious infection to go to a medical provider because they could not find a dental provider. That being said, if you encounter someone with a serious dental emergency, please inform them that we are here to help!
All non-essential upcoming appointments will be rescheduled into the future. If you have one coming up, expect a phone call from one of our team members, if you have not already.
We will hopefully have a better outlook in the next few weeks and will keep you updated from our side. We look forward to seeing you all after the crisis and well into the future.
Sincerely, Dr. Kinjal Patel Kingsview Dental
