What is a dental emergency?

Dental emergencies can range from acute pain caused by untreated cavities to a broken tooth, an abscess, or an accident. Each situation requires prompt intervention to preserve your oral health.

Dental emergency: make an appointment with a dentist.

Most dental emergencies involve:

  • A toothache: Pulpitis, which is the inflammation of the dental pulp, is usually due to advanced decay or trauma. The nerves it contains are affected and severe pain appears. It is necessary to act quickly to avoid an abscess.
  • An expelled tooth: as a result of a shock, you have lost a tooth. Keep it in a little saliva and take it urgently to a dentist who will reimplant it if possible.
  • A broken tooth: keep the tooth fragment and go urgently to see your dentist. He or she might be able to glue it back.
  • Bleeding: after a tooth extraction for example, if the bleeding doesn’t stop, consult a dentist.
  • A problem with an orthodontic appliance or a prosthesis: an unsealed crown, an implant that moves, a broken appliance.
  • An abscess: of infectious origin, it causes severe pain that analgesics do not relieve. It must be treated as soon as possible.

In general, the most common reasons of an emergency consultation are:

  • Pain not responding to analgesic drugs
  • Continuous bleeding
  • An accident, a trauma, a shock
  • Difficulty opening and closing the jaws
