What is a Dental Emergency?
A dental emergency is typically characterized by trauma to the teeth or surrounding oral structures. The most common dental emergencies include:
• Severe toothache
• Chipped tooth
• Cracked or broken tooth
• Knocked-out tooth
• Lost crown or filling
• Injury to the soft tissue in the mouth
• Jaw injury
What to Do in a Dental Emergency
Your first step when experiencing a dental emergency is to contact an emergency dental clinic in Edmonton. A staff member will be able to tell you what to do next and if you should come in right away or book an appointment.
Some dental emergencies are more urgent than others. For example, a lost crown or bridge should be replaced as soon as possible, but you can typically wait until the next day if you cannot get yourself to a dentist right away. A badly cracked or lost tooth, on the other hand, requires immediate attention.
A severe toothache should likewise be seen by a dentist right away, as it may indicate an abscess. For a less severe toothache, you can schedule an appointment and take some steps to manage the pain until then. For some suggestions on relieving a toothache at home, click here.
