What is a dental emergency?

A dental emergency is any oral health issue that requires immediate attention to save a tooth, stop bleeding, or treat severe pain. Dental emergencies can happen due to trauma to the mouth, infection, or other underlying conditions.

Examples of more commonly seen and experienced dental emergencies include:

  • A severe toothache – A sudden and severe toothache could indicate an infected tooth or abscess. It is critical that you immediately seek dental care to avoid the spread of infection and potential tooth loss.
  • Chipped or cracked tooth – If a tooth has become chipped or cracked, it may cause pain and discomfort, especially when eating or drinking. In some cases, the damage may be significant enough that the tooth needs to be extracted.
  • Knocked out tooth – Whether due to sports injuries or accidents, a knocked-out tooth should be treated as a dental emergency. For a better chance of successful reattachment, it’s important to re-implant the tooth as quickly as possible.
  • Dislodged or loose tooth – A dislodged or loose tooth can be caused by trauma to the mouth or underlying gum disease. If not addressed promptly, it could lead to further damage and the potential loss of the tooth.
  • Lost filling or crown – Fillings and crowns can become loose or fall out, leaving the affected tooth vulnerable to further damage and infection if not treated promptly.
  • Soft tissue injuries – Cuts, tears, or lacerations in the gums, lips, cheeks, or tongue may require immediate dental care to stop bleeding and prevent infection.
