What Is Considered A Dental Emergency?

dental emergency is typically defined as any oral problem that could lead to irreversible damage of left untreated in your teeth or gums. 

Below are 2 of the most common examples of a true dental emergency: 

Dental Pain Or Toothache

A toothache is always considered a true dental emergency. If you or someone in your family has pain or discomfort emanating from their teeth, it is important to seek dental care immediately. This is because a toothache is a sign of something potential larger and more extensive that needs treatment.

Some severe toothaches are accompanied by dental infection which can be life threatening. This is especially true if your toothache is paired with a fever, nausea, and/or vomiting.

A toothache could also indicate the presence of progressive gum disease or an injury due to oral trauma. 


Broken  or fractured tooth

A broken tooth is considered one of the most common dental emergencies. A fall to the ground, a sports injury, or even a sudden bite into a hard food can cause your tooth to break. A broken tooth requires immediate attention.
