Is It Considered a Dental Emergency?

A dental problem that needs immediate treatment to stop bleeding, alleviate severe pain, or save a tooth is an emergency. This consideration also applies to severe infections that can be life-threatening. If you have any of these symptoms, you may be experiencing a dental emergency:

  • Severe Toothaches
  • Chipped or Broken Teeth
  • Loose or Missing Fillings
  • Loose or Broken Dental Restorations
  • Gum Abscesses
  • Pain and Swelling Due to Tooth Infection
  • Dental Trauma
  • Sports-related Trauma
  • Loosened Teeth
  • Knocked-out Teeth
  • Broken Tooth Roots
  • Lacerations on the Lips or Gums
  • Any Oral Pain, Bleeding or Swelling

What Is Not a Dental Emergency?

If the problem can wait until your dentist can see you in the next couple of days, it is not a dental emergency. Sometimes problems that seem critical can actually wait for a day or so, as long as you take care of yourself. Examples of these would be a mild toothache or a chipped tooth.

How to Avoid Potential Emergencies

The best way to prevent dental emergencies is to stay proactive in your oral hygiene and have routine check-ups with Dr. Crawford. During these visits, Dr. Crawford and his team will check for signs of decay and more. We will note any infection, and gum disease, as well as loose fillings and dental crowns. This exam may include the use of 3D dental imaging to give us a good view of the affected area.

Remember whenever you have a procedure done in the office, you need to follow Dr. Crawford’s aftercare instructions carefully. Although a comprehensive dental hygiene routine can help keep these circumstances at bay, dental emergencies happen.  According to American Family Physicians, about 22 percent have experienced a dental emergency in the past six months.
