What Kinds Of Conditions Are Considered Dental Emergencies?

While it’s always best to see your dentist regularly to avoid emergency situations, we realize that some dental emergencies are unavoidable. We’ve put together some guidelines to help you determine what conditions and symptoms merit an emergency dental vision.

  • Extreme pain. Pain is often the number one reason why people seek dental treatment. If your pain is so severe that it cannot wait, or if you’ve tried to take over-the-counter medications that don’t worry, then your pain would be considered a medical emergency. Seek treatment immediately if the pain has expanded from your mouth to other areas of your face.
  • Excessive bleeding. Excessive bleeding that cannot be controlled at home qualifies as a dental emergency. If you are bleeding uncontrollably from your mouth or tooth, contact us immediately or call 911.
  • A loose tooth (as an adult). Adults should not lose their teeth. Therefore, if you have a loose tooth and it feels infected or is causing pain, then you may want to seek emergency treatment.
  • Infection or abscess. Infection or abscess in your mouth is dangerous because the location is so closely located near the brain and can worsen or rapidly. Watch out for symptoms that include swelling of the face or gums.
  • A cracked or chipped tooth. Aside from being painful, a cracked or chipped tooth may cause excessive bleeding or may lead to an infection. Seek treatment right away if you notice a cracked or chipped tooth.
