What is considered to be a dental emergency?
Get results you love
In order to determine whether you are in need of emergency dental services it’s important that you take the time to assess the situation that you are faced with. This will help you to determine what the next step should be.
If a tooth has been chipped or cracked, and there are only low levels of pain, then it would not typically be thought of an emergency situation. If there is however extensive damage to one or more teeth, and there is severe bleeding accompanied by major pain, then that should be considered to be a dental emergency. Teeth that have been knocked out or dislodged should also be thought of as a reason to head to the emergency dental clinic.
An abscess or other severe infection can be considered to be life-threatening and should be seen to as soon as possible. The infection can spread if not treated in a timely manner.
A tooth that is out of alignment or is loose should be seen by your dentist quickly. You can use light pressure to put the tooth back into position until you are able to get to the dentist.
The first step that your dentist will take is to evaluate the situation, evaluate the damage, and take quick steps to stem any bleeding or stop any pain that you are faced with. A tooth that has abscessed or has been cracked well below the gum line may need to be removed.
The primary goal for your dentist is to stabilise your tooth, preserve the tooth, and ensure that you are comfortable. If an extraction is needed then it will be done swiftly, with pain management as the goal. You may need to return to the clinic in a day or two, in order to further assess the situation and determine whether additional dental work is needed.
