Common Dental Emergencies

What Is a Dental Emergency?

Generally speaking, a dental emergency is an event requiring urgent intervention to halt bleeding, relieve intense pain, or preserve a tooth. Oftentimes, these situations typically arise from an accident or the progression of a cavity reaching the nerve, and other factors.

When Should You See The Dentist?

If you've experienced a sudden trauma in your mouth or have severe pain or an increasing level of discomfort when eating, drinking or sleeping, you may have an emergency. Here are some of the most common reasons our patients book an emergency appointment:

Knocked Out or Lost Tooth

If you've recently lost a tooth, it's imperative to seek prompt replacement to prevent further complications. The first step is to conduct a thorough evaluation to determine the most suitable replacement option for you. In certain cases, immediate intervention, such as an emergency implant or bridge, may be recommended to address the absence of the tooth and ensure optimal oral health.

Dental Abscess

A dental abscess is a collection of pus resulting from a bacterial infection, leading to symptoms such as swelling, toothache, and sensitivity. Our emergency dental care involves draining the abscess and preserving the tooth through an immediate root canal. In cases where saving the tooth is not feasible, our emergency dentists will conduct an urgent tooth extraction to prevent the spread of infection.

Wisdom Tooth Removal

Wisdom tooth extraction is a common dental procedure often necessary due to issues like impaction, crowding, or improper growth. When left untreated, impacted wisdom teeth can cause pain, swelling, and potential damage to surrounding teeth. Whether it's a straightforward extraction or more complex surgical procedures for impacted wisdom teeth, our goal is to ensure a comfortable experience and promote your overall oral health.

What To Do In A Dental Emergency

Step 1: Contact a dentist

Contact a dentist if you or someone in your family is experiencing severe pain, swelling or bleeding due to trauma, decay or infection. Only a qualified emergency dentist can properly diagnose the root cause of the emergency and advise you on appropriate treatment options and costs. In the meantime, here are some steps you can take to address the immediate dental issue:

Step 2: Apply Basic Care

For Tooth or Gum Pain

If you're experiencing discomfort, consider taking an over-the-counter medication such as Acetaminophen (Tylenol) or Ibuprofen (Advil) for relief. Also, consulting your local pharmacy for additional options may also be beneficial.

For Swelling Gums

If you're experiencing swelling, here are a few things you may want to consider. First, rinsing your mouth with a warm saltwater solution may help to reduce inflammation and cleanse the affected area. Second, place a cold compress or ice pack near the swollen area. Third, avoid irritants such as tobaccor, spicy food or anything else that might irritate your gums.

Bleeding

To address bleeding, use a clean and sterile piece of gauze. This will help to promote clotting and control bleeding. Replace as needed.

Lost tooth

If you've knocked out a tooth, try reinserting it into its socket, holding it by the crown. If this is not possible, store the tooth in clean milk and seek immediate dental attention. Acting promptly increases the chances of saving the tooth.
