A dental emergency is any oral health condition that causes you pain or threatens your dental and systemic health.

Examples of dental emergencies include:

  • Toothaches
  • Tooth sensitivity
  • Jaw pain
  • Jaw swelling
  • Broken restoration or tooth
  • Tooth or restoration knocked out or knocked loose
  • Soft tissue trauma
  • Object stuck between teeth

You may have an oral health situation that does not fit conveniently under one of the above descriptions. We always encourage your call when you’re unsure. We can help make the safest decision for your oral health.

Importance of Regular Checkups

Additionally, you may be able to lower your risks for some dental emergencies by visiting your dental clinic regularly for checkups and teeth cleans. These measures may make you less likely to develop deep decay, infections, and the resulting dental emergency.

You should also wear a mouthguard if you compete in sports. This can help lower your risks for tooth knocked out, knocked loose, or other sports-related injuries to the mouth.
