What is a dental emergency?
Various dental emergencies may arise, such as a sudden and servere toothache, a chipped or cracked tooth due to an accident, loose or damaged dental work, or the loss of a tooth. To know if your situation is an emergency, ask yourself the following questions:
- Are you in severe pain or experiencing severe swelling?
- Do you have a painful toothache that will not subside?
- Do you have a loose or missing tooth?
- Do you have swelling in your cheeks or face in combination with a toothache?
- Are you experiencing extreme tooth sensitivity?
- Are you bleeding from the mouth that will not stop?
- Is your jaw injured?
Any dental problem that needs immediate treatment to stop bleeding, alleviate severe pain, or save a tooth is considered an emergency. This consideration also applies to severe infections that can be life-threatening and constitute contacting your dental office.
What is not a dental emergency?
The problem likely isn’t a dental emergency, if the problem can be taken care of yourself for a few days without seeing your dentists. For example, a cracked or chipped tooth is only an emergency if the fracture is painful or has left you with trauma inside your mouth. If you have lost a filling, you can wait a few days to see your dentist.
