What Is Considered A Dental Emergency?

A dental emergency is an oral health issue that requires immediate care. If dental problems are left untreated, they can cause severe issues and unnecessary, prolonged tooth pain or tooth loss. When a dental emergency occurs, give our emergency dental care team a call right away so we can alleviate severe pain, control bleeding or intense swelling, perform x-rays to see precisely where the problem is, and immediate treatment.

Common Dental Emergencies Include:

Broken Or Cracked
Tooth

A broken tooth could result from an injury, tooth decay, or even from habits like clenching or grinding at night. Not only can this be painful, but it can also leave cuts on your cheek or tongue from sharp edges. Tooth extraction may need to be performed followed by the discussion of cosmetic dentistry options once healed. A damaged tooth should never be left untreated. It can result in further infection and require more extensive oral surgery.

Lost Tooth

The most common way a tooth is knocked out is from a sports-related trauma or car accident, but it can happen accidentally to anyone, even just in the comfort of your own home. It can cause a lot of pain, bleeding, and panic. If you or your children are involved in contact sports, we can discuss custom mouthguards as an option to protect your teeth. However, if you have the tooth that’s been knocked out, bring it with you to our Toronto dental clinic and we may be able to replant it.

Broken Crown, Bridges and Implants

Crowns, veneers, implants and bridges can be knocked out by accident. It’s also possible they can fall out or crack due to tooth decay, clenching, or grinding excessively at night. If you suffer from this dental problem, let’s discuss custom mouthguards and how we can protect your new tooth replacement.

Sensitivity To Heat Or Cold

Extreme sensitivity can be caused by nerve irritation, tooth decay, or be a sign you have a cracked/broken tooth. Avoid chewing where it’s sensitive, but keep the area clean with a small amount of toothpaste until you can see a dentist.

Bleeding Gums

Uncontrolled bleeding could be the result of trauma, but it could also be a sign of gum disease or an abscess. An abscessed tooth could mean there’s an infection, and if not taken care of, the infection can spread to the root of your tooth.

Severe Toothache

A toothache can be caused by a number of reasons. It can cause severe pain and discomfort, tenderness, and swelling. Common causes include:
  • Gum disease
  • Wedged food in teeth
  • Tooth decay
  • Mouth injury/trauma
  • Broken, chipped or cracked dental implants
  • Grinding or clenching
  • Infected nerve
Over-the-counter medication can be taken to alleviate pain and swelling, but you should still see a dentist as soon as possible, especially if you have an infected nerve. In this case, emergency procedures, such as a root canal, may need to be performed.
