What Is a Dental Emergency?

If you’ve suffered damage to your teeth or gums, it’s important to contact our office immediately. From the moment an accident or sudden issue occurs, the clock starts ticking. You have a limited amount of time to address your problem and prevent further damage.

Some common examples of dental emergencies include:

  • Severe toothache
  • Knocked out teeth
  • Broken or chipped teeth
  • Suddenly loose or misaligned teeth
  • Damaged fillings or broken crowns
  • Damaged, bleeding gums
  • Abscess
  • Pain or swelling in the jaw

Without quick and effective dental treatment, these issues can lead to infection or the loss of proper oral function. Contact The Smile Centre right away to schedule your emergency visit.

What Should I Do in the Event of a Dental Emergency?

Any dental emergency has the potential to cause pain and panic. By taking a few basic steps, you can help to keep the situation under control and improve your chances for a quick and effective recovery:

  • If you’ve lost a tooth, try to place the tooth back into the socket. If this is impossible, place the tooth in a glass of milk and bring it with you.
  • Be sure to keep any broken tooth fragments.
  • Bring failed or broken dental work with you to our office.
  • If you’ve suffered lacerations or cuts to your lips or tongue, be sure to properly clean the entire area.

Most importantly, stay calm. The emergency dentists at The Smile Centre will do everything possible to address your immediate concern and get you on the path to recovery.
