What is a dental emergency?
There are many situations that can occur which require the care and attention of a dentist. Below are a few of the more common dental situations that should be addressed by a dentist as soon as possible:
- A severe toothache can make it impossible to get comfortable, even after taking over-the-counter pain medications, and many patients with a severe toothache might be unable to rest at night. A toothache requires attention as soon as possible as it can be a sign of a much bigger problem.
- Lost restoration. Lost restorations may include anything from a lost filling that exposes the inside of a tooth and makes it susceptible to infection, or the loss of a crown, bridge, or veneer. Bonding these back in place needs to be done as soon as possible.
- Swollen jaw. A swollen jaw may indicate a serious infection that requires immediate care to address. It may also occur after an injury or blow to the face or mouth. An assessment can help resolve the issue.
- Knocked out tooth. Trauma to the face might result in a knocked-out or loose tooth that can be replaced if patients visit the dentist as soon as it occurs. The chance of saving the tooth is increased if patients are seen within an hour of the injury.
