What is Considered a Dental Emergency?

Not every injury calls for emergency dental care. Although some situations might be shocking – like cracking a tooth for example - they don’t necessarily mean you can’t wait for an appointment. If you think you are experiencing a dental emergency, you should ask yourself these questions:

  • Am I in severe pain?
  • Do I have uncontrolled bleeding?
  • Have I lost a tooth?
  • Are there visible signs of an infection?

Answering yes to any of these questions likely means you are experiencing a dental emergency, and you should contact our team right away. In fact, some injuries may not be visible immediately, so it’s vital to visit us or make an appointment as soon as possible after an accident to avoid any long-term damage. Also, if the bleeding is heavy, it is a dental emergency that requires urgent medical care since it may lead to blockage of the airways. Therefore, it's essential to pay attention to dental injuries, seek proper medical care and get the treatment you need for effective recovery. If you have lost a tooth, make sure to keep it moist, preferably in glass of milk, as it might be possible to save it still.

What Are Common Dental Emergencies?

Some of the most common dental emergencies include:

  • A loose or missing tooth
  • Abscess
  • Severe toothaches
  • Soft tissue injuries to the gums, lips, or cheeks
  • Lost prosthesis like dental crowns or restorations like dental fillings

Why is my tooth gray? Is that bad?

Dental trauma is a common occurrence, and unfortunately, it is the most common cause of a gray tooth. It's often comparable to how a bruise looks on your skin after an injury; your teeth can become discolored following an incident. The discoloration happens when the tooth doesn't receive adequate blood flow. Sometimes, the tooth will heal itself, but it's not uncommon for the tooth to stay discolored or even die. The treatment varies depending on the severity of the damage, but in most cases, it involves a root canal to remove the dead tissue. Bleaching and cosmetic restorations may be necessary to improve the tooth's color. Overall, dental trauma and teeth trauma are severe issues that require immediate attention to prevent further complications.
