Below are instructions for handling minor dental emergencies.
What is the most common dental emergency?
Severe tooth pain and abscesses are the most common dental emergencies – and almost always require the need for a root canal.
What is the most dangerous dental emergency?
There are many different dental emergencies that all require immediate attention, but infections causing abscesses need to be treated as soon as possible before it has a chance to spread.
How do I know if my infection is spreading?
An infection in your tooth can spread if left untreated. It can even make its way into your bloodstream and to your major organs becoming a medical emergency. Infection in the tooth can cause your neck, mouth, and jaw to painfully swell. This requires immediate attention. When it spreads further, you will develop symptoms such as headache, fever, dizziness, face swelling, dehydration, increased heart rate, rapid breathing, etc. If you experience any of these, seek emergency medical treatment right away.
What should you do if your molar breaks off at the gum line?
If one of your molars breaks off at – or beneath – the gum line, see your dentist immediately. Otherwise, you risk infection, abscess, and even nerve damage.
