Emergency dentistry

Dental emergencies are urgent dental conditions that require immediate attention from a dentist to alleviate pain, prevent further damage, and preserve oral health.

Common dental emergencies include:

A persistent or severe toothache can be caused by tooth decay, an abscessed tooth, or pulp inflammation. The dentist will conduct an examination, take an x-ray, and provide appropriate treatment, which may include a dental filling, root canal treatment, or an extraction.

Dental injuries, resulting in a knocked-out, fractured, or displaced tooth, require immediate intervention. Fractured or displaced teeth will be assessed by the dentist, who may perform bonding, splinting, or extraction, depending on the severity.

In case of swelling, severe pain, and fever, the dentist will evaluate the condition and may need to prescribe antibiotics, drain the abscess, remove the affected tooth, or perform a root canal treatment, depending on the extent of the infection.

If a dental crown, filling, or bridge becomes loose or falls out, the dentist will assess the situation, clean the affected area, and replace or reattach the restoration if possible.

If gums, tongue, or inner cheeks are lacerated and bleed as a result of an injury, the dentist will examine the area, control the bleeding, and provide appropriate treatment, which may involve suturing or prescribing pain-relieving medications.
