What is an Emergency?

To determine if you are experiencing a dental emergency, consider the following:

  • Quick action after losing a tooth can raise the chances of saving it
  • Loose adult teeth are a serious sign of something being wrong
  • Severe pain or bleeding from the mouth are clear signs of a dental emergency
  • A serious dental infection can be potentially life-threatening

As a general rule of thumb, any issue related to the teeth bleeding, feelings of severe pain, a serious dental infection, or a loose adult tooth would likely be considered an emergency. Reaching out immediately can be the difference between symptoms worsening and correcting the issue.

Steps to Take in the Event of an Emergency

If you ever find yourself experiencing a dental emergency, it’s important to stay calm and contact your dentist immediately. If the emergency involves a lost tooth, hold it by the crown, which is the part used to chew food, and rinse it in water. Make sure not to wash away any tissue that’s still attached to the root of the tooth, and preserve the tooth by holding it in the socket it came out of if possible. If this isn’t possible, put the tooth into a filled with milk or saliva. Rinse your mouth out with warm water and apply a cold compress to the area of the face where the injury occurred.
