Emergency Dental Services And Facilities
Dental Focus offers a wide range of dental treatments including emergency dental solutions for those who are in pain but do not have the time for a consultation.
A dental problem that requires an immediate treatment to save a tooth, stop tissue bleeding, or lessen severe pain is considered a dental emergency. A serious infection or abscess in the mouth can be life-threatening to the patient and it must be addressed as soon as possible.
What is a Dental Emergency?
Dental emergencies include oral injuries such as teeth that were knocked out, loosened or forced out of position or fractured. Dental emergencies also include laceration of the lips, gums or cheeks. Oral injuries can be painful and should be treated by a dentist as soon as possible.
What are the types of dental emergencies?
Sometimes, patients do not realize that they are already experiencing a dental emergency. Yet, if you have had a dental emergency in the past, then you can understand how painful and frightening it can be.
Some dental emergencies are urgent while others can wait to be treated. The common types of dental emergencies are as follows:
- Broken tooth
- Pulpal abscesses
- Gum abscesses
- Swelling or bleeding in the mouth
- Injured jaw
- Painful swelling
- Painful toothache
Below are examples of non-urgent dental emergencies:
- Lost Crown, Filling or Bridge
- Cracked Tooth (unless it is causing you severe pain)
- Damaged retainer or broken night guard
- Food lodged between the teeth
- A dull toothache
