With temperatures dropping and snow falling, the excitement and anticipation of our favorite winter sports is building.

Winter is a great time to get outside and explore our beautiful backyard, and these days there are more options to do so than ever before.

Whether it’s snowboarding, skiing, curling, hockey, sledding or anything in between, your favorite winter sports offer a great way to enjoy the colder season.

But the cold weather and the impact of slips, falls and crashes can leave your teeth exposed to some unique dangers.

However you like to enjoy your winters, taking care of your teeth and protecting your smile should be a top priority.


The Prevention Is Always Better Than The Cure

Last year, we wrote about how you can help to prevent dental injuries while enjoying your favorite winter sports and if you haven’t yet seen that article, we highly recommend giving it a read.

As with anything health related, preventative dental care is always better than complicated restorative procedures. Taking some basic steps like wearing a mouth guard and ensuring you have good overall oral hygiene will give you stronger teeth and a healthier mouth which is more resilient to the challenges of your favorite winter sports and activities.


The Need For Restorative Dental Care

Unfortunately, accidents do happen.

No matter how much effort you put into preventative dental health care, from time to time, slips, falls and accidents still happen that leave your teeth needing some expert dental attention.

The important thing is not to panic.

Advanced modern day dentistry techniques in restorative dental care can have your smile looking just as good as, or maybe even better than it did before.

Here at Kherani Dental at Aspen, we have helped hundreds of patients find their way back to a perfect smile.

We regularly repair chipped, cracked or broken teeth, or even replace teeth that have been knocked out entirely, with our wide range of restorative procedures that can have your smile back to normal in the shortest amount of time possible.

Our emergency dentist in Calgary can take care of all of your urgent dental concerns. Call us today on (403) 263 0055 to make an emergency dental appointment.


Emergency Dental Care Costs

Getting emergency dentistry in Calgary or anywhere else can be a stressful time for a lot of reasons.

Luckily, the costs of your emergency dental care might not necessarily be one of them.

Oftentimes, emergency dentistry following an accident or incident is covered by your general dental or health insurance. For full details on exactly what’s covered and what’s not, we recommend consulting your insurance plan or calling your coverage provider for more information on exactly what your out-of-pocket costs will be. Here at Kherani Dental at Aspen, we can also work with you and your insurance provider to help make sure everyone understands what work needs to be done and what the costs will be.


Don’t Put Off Your Emergency Dental Care

Putting off taking care of your dental emergency due to cost worries can sometimes have wider reaching long term implications for your oral health, and we recommend seeking expert advice as soon as possible in order to prevent any unnecessary complications and stress.

The longer you wait to take care of that chipped or cracked tooth, the more time you have for the problem to worsen, and that could end up costing you more time and money in the long run.

At Kherani Dental at Aspen, we firmly believe in addressing oral health issues promptly and we can often make space for same day emergency dental appointments when the need arises.
