Dental Emergencies for Adults

Common types of dental emergencies that require immediate attention include:

  • Dental Trauma: When your teeth move out of position due to a sudden jerk or hit, this causes dental trauma. You can expect symptoms like bleeding, severe pain, and sometimes even swelling.
  • Toothaches: A toothache becomes an emergency when you begin to swell around your jaw or face, have trouble breathing, feel pain when swallowing, or develop a cough. No matter the type of pain, whether severe or mild, book an appointment to avoid ignoring any underlying issues.
  • Infections: Infections are most commonly characterized by tooth sensitivity and are best dealt with during the early stages. Without proper and timely treatment, the infection could spread and lead to an even more significant issue. Symptoms to look out for include: throbbing pain, sensitivity to hot and cold liquids, swelling, and in some cases, a fever. 

 

Dental Emergencies for Children

Accidents can happen anytime - at school, at home, or outdoors. If your child’s teeth are damaged during an accident, ensure that he/she gets the right care immediately. This can save the child’s teeth and prevent severe damage to their smile. While the symptoms might be the same as those found in adults, the situation with children is often complicated by increased panic and lack of information. If your child is facing a medical emergency, ensure you keep him/her calm. It is important that their jaw is relaxed while you contact us for help.

 

Types of Children’s Dental Emergencies & Steps to Follow:

  • If a baby tooth falls out: Reach out to our emergency team as quickly as possible. In case of bleeding, rinse the mouth with water, place gauze in the opening, and apply an ice pack or cold compresses on the outside of the mouth to decrease the swelling. Focus on keeping the child calm instead of looking for the tooth because baby teeth will never be replanted.
  • If a permanent tooth is knocked out: Rinse the knocked-out tooth gently in cool water. Do not scrub it or use soap. You can store the broken tooth in milk and bring it to the dentist along with the child to restore it.
  • If a tooth is chipped or broken: If the child is in pain or their mouth is bleeding, contact our office immediately. Quick action can save the tooth, reduce the need for extensive treatment, and prevent infection. Immediately, rinse the mouth with water and place cold compresses to reduce swelling. If you find the broken tooth fragment, bring it to your emergency appointment.

Many dental emergencies happen while playing sports. To prevent these problems, have your child wear mouth protection.

Frequently Asked Questions

What is a dental emergency?

If a dental condition is causing you extreme pain and preventing you from going about your daily activities, it is considered a dental emergency. 


Can you go to a hospital for your dental emergency?

You can visit a hospital. However, hospitals will only provide routine care for general emergencies since they are not well-equipped to handle more severe and specialized cases. 


How do you know if your tooth infection has spread? 

Infections might have spread if you feel dizzy, tired, dehydrated or have a headache. Other signs might include a rapid heart rate or having 25 breaths per minute. Tooth infections can be life-threatening, and it is key to call immediately after the first sign to avoid a wider spread.
