Dental emergencies can occur at anytime or anyplace, whether they be painful toothaches, severe oral infections or oral injuries. It is important to stay calm during a dental emergency, and administer appropriate first aid if required until emergency dental treatment can be sought.
Types of dental emergencies:
- Severe toothache
- Abscesses / facial swelling / Oral infection
- Oral trauma (soft tissue) & bleeding
- Jaw pain
- Fracured jaw
- Bitten or injured tongue, lips or cheeks
- Root fracture
- Knocked-out / dislodged
- Displaced tooth
- Cracked, broken, chipped or fractured tooth/root
- Lost/fractured crowns, fillings or other dental work
In the event of a dental emergency, the quicker emergency dental treatment is sought, the more likely it is that the risk of permanent damage or further infection is lowered. In the case of a knocked-out tooth, the time difference between saving and losing that tooth may only be a matter of minutes.
