What is a dental emergency?
A dental emergency can involve any injury, sudden pain or other unusual symptoms related to your teeth or
any part of your mouth. Damaged or dislodged dental restorations such as fillings or crowns can also count as dental emergencies.
These problems may affect your ability to eat or speak normally or put you at risk of further injury or infection if you don’t receive treatment promptly.
A toothache can be a symptom of many oral health problems, or it could go away on its own. You should book an appointment with one of our emergency dentists to get a diagnosis and find out whether treatment is needed.
Knocked out tooth
You should see one of our emergency dentists as soon as possible if any of your teeth get knocked out. There
is a small chance the tooth can be reinserted if you can get to the dentist as soon as possible. You should avoid touching the roots and put the tooth back into the socket or in a container of milk to improve the chances of successful reinsertion. You should not try to reinsert a baby tooth, as this could damage the permanent tooth developing below.
Even if it’s not possible to save your tooth, you should still have your mouth examined to check for any other damage or signs of infection. Our emergency dentists will discuss tooth replacement options such as a dental bridge or dental Implant to restore the appearance and function of your smile.
Chipped or cracked tooth
A damaged tooth is always a cause for concern and needs urgent treatment from dentist. Even a minor crack could be more serious than it looks and put your tooth at risk of infection. If your mouth is bleeding or there’s debris from the damaged tooth, clean the area with warm water. You can try to relieve pain or reduce swelling with a cold compress on your way to the dental clinic. Our emergency dentists may discuss options such as a filling, crown, veneers or root canal therapy for a chipped or cracked tooth.
Damaged or lost dental restoration
If something happens to a crown, bridge, denture, filling, veneer or other dental restoration in your mouth,
you should contact us to discuss your symptoms and treatment options.
It may be a dental emergency if the damaged restoration is causing any pain or sensitivity, at risk of cutting your mouth, or is impacting on your ability to eat normally. Depending on the type of restoration and the severity of the damage, we’ll advise you whether it can be repaired or needs to be replaced.
Jaw locking or Jaw pain
If your jaw feels stiff, painful or makes sounds when you open and close your mouth, chew or yawn, this could indicate a problem with your temporomandibular joints (TMJ) or another jaw problem. You should make an appointment with one of our experienced dentists to discuss TMJ treatments or other options.
Do I need to see an emergency dentist?
Not all dental problems are emergencies, but if you’re worried about your symptoms, or you think there’s
a risk of the problem getting worse if you delay getting treatment, it’s recommended that you contact to Worldciti Dental right away.
We can advise you whether an emergency appointment is needed or if you can manage your symptoms at home. If your tooth is knocked out or severely damaged, seeing
One of our emergency dentists as soon as possible could make all the difference to saving the tooth.
Have you had a dental emergency?
One of our experienced emergency dentists will ask you to describe what happened and how you’re feeling so we can offer the best advice to help you on the road to recovery.
