Emergency dentistry is a branch of dentistry that addresses dental issues which could potentially cause serious damage to one’s teeth, bone structure, and gums. These issues demand immediate attention.
Getting the care you need when it matters most
Here are a few situations when you may require emergency dentistry:
- In the case of an injury that has occurred to the tooth and there is severe bleeding, you need to call your dentist immediately. Similarly, if there is significant inflammation and pain in the tooth and gums, emergency dental services might be required
- When a tooth is knocked out and/or becomes loose from the gums. You definitely need emergency dental care in such a situation. The dentist will work to reposition and stabilize your damaged tooth. For both knocked out and dislodged teeth, an appointment would need to be scheduled. Sometimes, a root canal procedure might also be performed, usually several days after the injury
- When a tooth suffers a fracture or a portion of the tooth is chipped/broken off. In this case, the dentist will first take an x-ray of your tooth/teeth and may even perform a few other visual exams to review the amount of damage to the tooth/teeth.
- If you are experiencing severe tooth pain or a sharp sting in your teeth, this is often a sign that there is a much larger problem. Commonly, these symptoms follow infection or major decay of the teeth. Immediate dental assistance should be sought if this is the case.
- If any of your dental appliances such as crowns, veneers, bridges or dentures become broken or damaged, it is imperative that these are corrected as soon as possible. Aside from the fact that chewing and other everyday functions may be impeded by damage, infection and decay can spread due to the unprotected spaces that have been exposed, a favorite hiding place for bacteria.
