What Is Considered A Dental Emergency?

Understanding what qualifies as a dental emergency can help you take swift action and make informed decisions during critical moments. At Lakeway Cosmetic Dentistry, we classify the following situations as dental emergencies, each requiring prompt attention to prevent further complications or permanent damage. If your issue is not listed, but you think it requires immediate attention, do not hesitate to call now.

Extreme Toothache

Severe pain in a tooth or jawbone can indicate underlying issues such as infection or decay. If the pain is unbearable and not alleviated by over-the-counter pain relievers, it's essential to seek immediate dental care.

Cracked or Chipped Tooth

Any significant damage to a tooth, whether it results from an accident or biting down on something hard, requires urgent attention. Even if it isn’t painful, the damaged area can worsen or become infected if left untreated.

Knocked-Out Tooth

Time is of the essence if a tooth has been completely dislodged. Successfully reinserting the tooth is often possible if treated promptly, ideally within an hour of the incident.

Abscessed Tooth

This is an infection at the root of a tooth or between the gum and a tooth. It’s often accompanied by severe discomfort, swelling, and fever. An abscess can be dangerous if the infection spreads, making immediate treatment critical.

Uncontrollable Bleeding

Continuous bleeding after dental surgery or from an injury is an emergency that requires immediate professional intervention to stop the bleeding and ensure there are no further complications.

Denture Adjustment

If dentures become cracked, broken, or otherwise malfunctioning, they can cause significant discomfort or injury to the soft tissues of the mouth. Quick professional adjustment is necessary to avoid further issues.

Dental Implant Adjustment

Similar to dentures, if an implant is not functioning correctly, perhaps due to damage or loosening, it is crucial to address this immediately to prevent further damage and ensure the health of surrounding tissues and bones.

Filling Repair

If a filling falls out or becomes damaged, the exposed tooth is vulnerable to infection and further decay. Prompt repair is essential to protect the tooth and alleviate discomfort.

If you or a loved one encounters any of these dental emergencies, do not hesitate to contact us immediately. Our goal is to treat your emergencies with efficiency and compassion, ensuring your oral health is promptly restored and maintained.

What qualifies as a dental emergency?

A dental emergency typically involves sudden pain, injury, or discomfort that requires immediate attention. Common examples include severe toothaches, knocked-out teeth, chipped or broken teeth, significant bleeding, abscesses, or any injury to the gums or jaw.

What should I do if I have a knocked-out tooth?

If you have a knocked-out tooth, it's critical to handle the tooth by the crown (top part), not the root. If the tooth is dirty, gently rinse it with water, but do not scrub. If possible, try to reinsert it into the socket and hold it in place with a clean cloth or gauze. If you can't reinsert it, keep the tooth moist by placing it in milk or in your mouth next to your cheek. Contact your dentist immediately, as time is a crucial factor in saving the tooth.

How quickly should I see a dentist in an emergency?

You should see a dentist as soon as possible, ideally within an hour of the incident, especially in cases like a knocked-out tooth or severe injury. Many dental emergencies require prompt treatment to avoid long-term damage or infections.

Can I go to the ER for a dental emergency?

While emergency rooms can provide relief from pain and help manage infections, they might not be able to offer comprehensive dental treatment. It's best to visit an emergency dentist who can provide specific dental care. However, if you have severe trauma, such as jaw fractures or significant cuts to the face and mouth, you should immediately go to an ER.
