by Allen Rose Doctor

What is Dental Emergency?

Dental fractures, tooth loss during an accident, infections and other dental issues such as when you encounter sudden unbearable pain come under the cases of dental emergencies. All these conditions require sudden treatment and diagnosis from a professional emergency dentist.

Signs of dental emergency

Severe toothache

A severe toothache can be upsetting and can cause a lot of discomforts. It is time to visit the dentist immediately and get toothache relief. There are various issues that can cause a toothache and the dentist would provide the proper treatment depending on the cause.

Bleeding gums

Bleeding gums are a sign of gum disease or a condition called gingivitis. In the case of excessive and recurring bleeding, you must visit the dentist immediately. Serious gum disease can leave the patient in the condition where restoring the teeth back to their healthy state becomes very difficult.

Knocked-out tooth

If your tooth has been knocked-out, there is a possibility that the emergency dentist can reinsert and preserve the tooth if it is being cured within a few hours.

Cracked or chipped tooth

Cracked or chipped tooth can be caused due to serious fracture and the condition can be very painful. Till the time you visit the dentist, clean your mouth with warm water and apply a cold compress to the outside of your face to reduce swelling. Seek emergency treatment immediately.

Swollen Jaw

A swollen jaw can be a sign of serious infection. If it is accompanied by fever, trouble in breathing or swallowing and bad taste then visit an emergency dentist immediately.

Numb tooth

If after a severe toothache, you start feeling nothing at all then it could be a sign that the infection has spread to the root of your tooth. It is an indication to visit the emergency dentist immediately. 

How to avoid potential dental emergencies?

Staying proactive in oral hygiene with a regular visit to the dentist can help you prevent dental emergencies. A dentist can treat the conditions like a loose filling or crown, tooth decay, infection, and gum disease as soon as the signs emerge preventing them to develop into an emergency. Timely diagnose can help you keep these dental emergency conditions at bay.
