A dental emergency can come from a variety of accidents. A fall or minor accident in the home, a child playing outside, a teenager in a football match- they happen unexpectedly but must be handled urgently.
A dental emergency might include a chipped or broken tooth, severe bleeding or pain to the jaw, gums, or teeth, trauma to the mouth, a tooth that has fallen out, or sudden, severe irritation.
Typically, the two biggest signs of a dental emergency are going to be severe pain or extensive bleeding. These indicate either trauma or injury that should be addressed quickly. If something needs urgent treatment and cannot wait until your next appointment, it’s best to contact us to find out what your next steps are.
Similarly, if you aren’t in pain and there isn’t bleeding, but there is clear and visible trauma to the tooth, contact us to find out next steps.
In the event of a life and death emergency, however, contact your personal doctor or emergency services right away.
