Dental Emergencies

Dental emergencies can have serious consequences, both for your teeth and for your general health, so it’s important to take them seriously. Depending on your symptoms, you may need to see a dentist immediately or within the next few days. A dental emergency is defined as an oral health issue that requires immediate treatment to save a tooth, control an infection or alleviate pain.

As a rule of thumb, if you have swelling, extreme pain, or bleeding you should seek immediate treatment, either from a dentist or a hospital emergency room. You should also seek immediate treatment for a knocked-out tooth, as it may be possible to save the tooth. We do not recommend taking over-the-counter medication for more than a couple of days without a diagnosis.

  • Bleeding mouth or gums
  • Broken or chipped tooth
  • Cracked tooth
  • Jaw pain
  • Knocked-out tooth
  • Lost or broken crown
  • Lost or broken filling
  • Lost or broken veneer
  • Pus drainage or a visible abscess in or near the mouth
  • Sudden sensitivity to cold or heat
  • Swollen face
  • Debris lodged between teeth
  • Tongue laceration
  • Toothache, sudden or severe

What should you do to prepare for an emergency visit to the dentist? In most cases, you should rinse your mouth gently with saltwater and avoid chewing on the affected side. Call us to make arrangements to see the dentist as soon as possible. If you have severe pain, you can also take an anti-inflammatory such as Advil to make yourself a bit more comfortable until we can see you. All dental services performed by a general dentist.
