What is a Dental Emergency?
In general, a situation where the patient is facing severe oral pain and which is not relieved by taking analgesics is called a dental emergency, despite the fact that there is no risk to the patient’s life. It is often a toothache or an abscess, for example. In this case, the term dental emergency is quite subjective and depends on the patient’s pain resistance threshold. Keep in mind that the best way to protect yourself from this kind of situation is to visit your dentist at least once a year to check for a possible future dental complications.
You can read more about Emergency Dental Services on our website, along with calling our practice directly.
Another situation can also be qualified as a dental emergency when the patient requires care which must be administered quickly, to ensure the effectiveness of the treatment. This is the case when the patient suffers a shock or an accident and he partially or totally loses his tooth. It must then be reimplanted as soon as possible so that the transplant can take place.
The same is true if the tooth is broken and the nerve is exposed, which causes severe pain in the person affected. A red dot is visible on the still hanging part of the broken tooth. It is then necessary to “devitalize” the tooth to stop the pain as quickly as possible. On the other hand, if the nerve is not affected, reconstruction care can then wait for an appointment.
There is also a relative urgency like a crown or a bridge that comes off, all the more reasons to schedule your visit today.
There are therefore several types of dental emergencies, the severity of which varies depending on the nature of the patient’s symptoms.
What to Do in a Dental Emergency?
In case of a dental emergency during the day during the week, start by contacting your usual dentist, specifying the nature of your problem. They may be able to give you an appointment quickly if his schedule is not full.

Frequent Cases of Dental Emergencies
Among the most recurring cases of dental emergencies, it is possible to find:
- Toothache: it is a cavity that has not been treated in time and therefore causes inflammation of the nerve.
- Dental Abscess: it too is considered an emergency. This is a swelling inside the mouth which may be accompanied by glands in the neck and a strong feeling of discomfort.
- Hemorrhage: This is continuous bleeding that does not stop, even when biting into a compress. This type of bleeding occurs after the extraction of one or more teeth.
