What is Considered to be a Dental Emergency?

We are often asked what exactly is considered a dental emergency and what do emergency dentists do? The team at Maple Dental Health focuses on dental emergencies that will adversely affect you if the issues are not treated immediately. This is why our team suggests you contact an emergency dentist immediately if you are experiencing; swelling, an abscessed tooth, an extruded tooth, facial fractures or a knocked-out tooth. For other issues, it is suggested you make an appointment and monitor the situation to see if you need to expedite care.

Although you might think your dental concern is an emergency, it might not be! Here are some common oral ailments we have seen come into the office, and how they rank on the emergency scale.

Dull, continuous ache

(Non-emergency)

A toothache, like pain, can be best described on a scale. If you are experiencing a dull, yet constant ache in your mouth, you should look to make an appointment with one of our dentists. If the tooth starts to cause significant pain, you will need to seek emergency dental options as quickly as possible.

Broken denture

(Non-emergency)

Dentures are not indestructible, and whether you have cracked, chipped or completely broken your set, it is time to chat to the team at Maple Dental Health. However, broken dentures are not considered a dental emergency. Instead of heading into the office, you should make an appointment with your dentist to have a replacement or repair set ordered sooner rather than later.

Sensitivity to cold/heat

(Non-emergency)

Sensitive teeth are not a new issue in the dental community, and although it can be a long-term concern, sensitivity to cold or heat is not considered a dental emergency. Typically, this feeling will pass with time, but if it persists, it is best to make an appointment to look at your overall oral health and find some solutions to the sensitivities you are feeling.

Lost filling

(Non-emergency)

Is a filling falling out a dental emergency? The answer is NO. However, it is advisable to make an appointment with your dentist at Maple Dental Health and have your filling back in place as soon as possible, because the exposed tooth tissue can be sensitive to pressure, cold/hot temperatures and you may feel discomfort and pain without the filling.

Fractured tooth

(Could be Emergency)

If you are dealing with a fractured tooth, it might be time to start looking up the number to dentist. Although a fractured tooth is not typically considered a dental emergency, it is worth monitoring to ensure that the tooth is not causing you excessive pain or swelling. If the tooth starts to hurt or swell, make sure to head into Maple Dental Health for an emergency appointment!

Root canal

(Could be Emergency)

Is a root canal a dental emergency? Well, it depends, and it all depends on you, and the spot that is causing you issues. If you are experiencing extreme pain or swelling, you will need to come into the office. If it is just a dull pain, it is suggested you continue monitoring the spot and make an appointment to come in during office hours to have the tooth looked at.

Broken braces and wires

(Somewhat Urgent)

Whether it is mouth gear, a broken wire or brace anchors coming off, broken braces and wires can cause major concerns for your oral health. If the break is not stabbing or poking your mouth, you should make an appointment to have them fixed as soon as possible. However, if they are affecting your mouth, you need to come into the dental office right away.

Swelling
