What is considered a dental emergency?

A dental emergency is any situation that places a threat to your oral health. Dental emergencies often cause severe tooth and mouth pain, bleeding, or discomfort from trauma or infection. When not taken care of in time, pain and trauma can worsen other parts of your mouth or teeth, making it difficult to enjoy regular activities like eating, drinking, and sleeping. Some situations of dental emergencies include:

  • Dental Abscess
  • Broken & Chipped Teeth
  • Severe Toothache
  • Lost Tooth
  • Swollen & Bleeding Gums

Is a root canal an emergency?

Severe toothache and pain are a result of a dental infection. When tooth infections are left untreated, they can cause tooth decay. A root canal is one way to treat tooth infection while preserving the natural tooth. Once the tooth is accompanied by throbbing pain or dental abscess in the gum tissue, an emergency root canal may be the only option in putting you out of pain while allowing you to preserve your natural tooth.

What are dental emergency treatment options?

While an emergency root canal may be necessary, it is not the only dental emergency treatment option available. Treatment will vary on how quickly you contacted your emergency dentist and the extent of the emergency. For example, a patient with a severe infection may benefit from a dental extraction, or a patient with swollen gums may need to receive periodontal care. If you’re experiencing a dental emergency, it’s best to contact an emergency dentist as soon as possible to have more treatment options to select.
