At this time of a worldwide pandemic, social restrictions are constantly in a flux. Many areas have stay-at-home orders or businesses are shut down. Unfortunately, dental emergencies happen when you least expect them. That’s why Pier Dental Centre is still committed to safely providing emergency dentistry in North Vancouver, even if we’re not scheduling regular dental procedures.
In fact, seeing our North Vancouver emergency dentist helps our local medical professionals and hospitals by reducing the number of individuals who need same-day emergency care. When pain is associated with your mouth, Dr. Cegielski can see you as soon as possible.
So, what warrants itself as a true dental emergency? Dr. Cegielski recommends calling us on the same day if you’re experiencing any of the following concerns:
- A broken or knocked-out tooth
- Your crown or bridge coming off
- Tooth pain
- Swelling on your gums next to a tooth
- Visible drainage (pus) or bleeding
- Waking up with severe toothaches in the night
- Discomfort to the point where you can’t eat or drink
- Visible decay in your tooth enamel
Even if these situations may not seem like an urgent dental issue, they can quickly evolve into an emergency. Instead of having to rush off to the hospital or emergency room for fast pain relief, the safest thing to do is see our North Vancouver dentist on the same day. Even if an appointment isn’t necessary, Dr. Cegielski or one of our staff can speak to you over the phone to put your mind at ease and give you advice on what you should do next.
At Pier Dental Centre, we put our patients first. Although this is a unique time for our community, we still rely on healthy teeth to get through each day. If you have tooth pain or a dental emergency, call our North Vancouver dentist today!
