What Is A Dental Emergency?

Dentists in Toronto perform emergency dentistry on sedated patient
A dental emergency is an oral health issue that needs to be addressed to save a tooth, alleviate severe pain, control bleeding or intense swelling. When seeking service from an emergency dentist, we’ll provide a quick consultation, perform x-rays to see precisely where the problem is and begin immediate treatment. Afterwhich, patients will likely be given pain relievers or antibiotics and resume regular a check-up visit schedule with our dentist.

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.

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.

Bleeding Gums

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

Jaw Pain

It may seem silly to some that jaw pain is considered a dental emergency, but patients who have habits like clenching and grinding will often wake up feeling very tired and sore.

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.

How Mouthguards Can Prevent Injury

Our emergency dentist can’t predict when emergencies are going to happen, but we can certainly try to help prevent them. Our dental clinic offers night guards and sports guards to patients of any age in order to prevent injury, damage, or wear and tear.

Sports mouthguards can help minimize the risk of sustaining an injury to your teeth while playing sports. They typically cover your upper teeth and also help protect your lips tongue, jaw and cheeks.

Night mouthguards don’t necessarily protect you from injury but they do help prevent wear and tear. If you have a habit of grinding or clenching, it can eventually wear down your teeth, cause potential cracks or chips in crowns or veneers and facial pain or headaches. It can even leave your teeth with cosmetic damage.

If you want to ensure your smile is healthy for years to come, give us a call so we can reserve an appointment for a free mouth guard consultation. Don’t wait for a dental emergency visit to stay informed of your options.
