Emergency Dentist in Calgary

Dental emergency? Don’t delay.
Prompt treatment will help your pain.

Dental pain and discomfort won’t go away without help from a dentist. If you have a dental emergency, book an emergency appointment with Dr. Newman today.

If you’re experiencing any of the following, this is a dental emergency.

  • A chipped, broken or loose tooth
  • Broken or lost filling/ crown
  • Pain in your tooth, jaw or face
  • Prolonged bleeding
  • Dental infection or abscess
  • Oral or facial trauma
  • Any other dental problem or discomfort

We’re proud to offer emergency dental treatment to the residents of NE Calgary. We can offer same-day, walk-in appointments, even if you aren’t registered with Dr. Newman.


What can we achieve during an emergency dental treatment appointment?


The primary goal of an emergency appointment is to identify the problem and relieve your pain. If you require prescription pain relief or antibiotics to fight an infection, we’ll start there. This will help you to manage your pain until you can make a routine appointment.

We can also take preventative measures to stop further damage. If you decide to go ahead with treatment from Dr. Newman, we’ll create a treatment plan to get you back on track.

Suffering from a toothache? Use ice, not heat!

Alongside over the counter medication, you may also want to place a cold compress against your face. This will help to ease your pain until you can see a dentist. Don’t use a warm compress, as this will make your pain worse.


Don’t be a hero! If it hurts, it’s an emergency...

We’re proud to offer affordable and accessible emergency dental care to the residents of NE Calgary. If you’re in pain, we’re here to help.

An emergency dental treatment appointment might not result in a same-day root canal or tooth extraction. But it’s the first step in treating your dental emergency. Treatment options may include x-rays, assessing your dental health, smoothing the sharp edges of a chipped tooth, saving a lost crown for reattachment or prescribing medication for pain and/or infection.

Delaying treatment could make the underlying issue worse. In the case of a dental abscess, the pain might go away after if you can ignore it, but this isn’t a good sign. This simply means that more of the dental tissue has died. Leave it longer, and you may require a dental extraction instead of a root canal.

Where possible, we want to help you restore your dental health in the least intrusive way possible. Taking action when you’re in pain is the best way to help us to achieve this. Don’t worry if you skipped your last few check-ups, it’s time to start fresh and get your oral health back on track.

Your pain won't go away on its own.

We can help you, often with same‑day emergency dental treatment.
