What is a Dental Emergency.
Here is a list of occurrences and conditions that we divided into dental emergencies, non-emergency situations and possible emergencies. It still makes sense to call our service, to be on the safe side, but this list can definitely give you a guideline of what is and what isn’t a dental medical emergency.
- Dull, Continuous Pain – a Non-Emergency. Dull pain is not easy to endure and not comfortable, but neither is it a sign of anything that needs immediate attention. Do not ignore it, however, because it still means that there is a problem in there, which needs to be addressed.
- Broken Denture – a Non Emergency. While this is not an emergency, we do not advise to take it lightly. Never try repair it on your own and see a dentist at your earliest convenience.
- Cold Sensitivity – Non Emergency. While it may be an indication of a problem, it is not an urgent one.
- Heat Sensitivity – Possibly Urgent. Heat sensitivity may mean an infection. If it is accompanied by swelling, pus or fever, calling our Emergency Line is advised.
- Fractured Tooth – Possibly Urgent. This depends on the severity of the fracture and pain in the area. If not sure, call the emergency line just in case.
- Broken Braces Wires – Urgent. The broken wire is not in itself a problem, but poses a threat of causing damage to the gums. Push it away from the gums using the eraser-end of a pencil and take it to a dentist from there to ensure proper treatment.
- Swelling – Dental Emergency. This is even more acute if accompanied by sudden severe discomfort and pain. Possibly a sign of an infection and should be treated immediately.
- Knocked Out or Extruded Tooth – Dental Emergency. Control the bleeding with direct pressure and a cold compress, and call the emergency line. The tooth may actually be re-implanted if no other damage was done. The same goes for a tooth that was pushed partially out of its socket.
