How will you know if you need emergency dental care?
Not all dental problems are considered emergencies. Ask yourself these questions to determine if you need urgent dental care or can wait a day or two:
- Are you experiencing severe pain? Acute pain is a sign of an emergency.
- Did you lose a tooth? Immediate treatment can potentially save it.
- Are there signs of an infection, such as knots or swelling on your gums or around your face? Any serious infection or abscess in the mouth can become life-threatening, and urgent treatment is best.
- Are you experiencing bleeding in the mouth? This is another potential symptom of a dental emergency.
Any dental malady needing immediate treatment to alleviate serious pain, save a tooth, or stop bleeding as well as potentially life-threatening infections are considered dental emergencies.

How to deal with common dental emergencies?
For a knocked-out permanent or adult tooth, you should keep it moist at all times. You can place it in between your cheek and gums, or in a cup of milk. Get to a dentist’s a quickly as possible.
If the tooth is a baby tooth, the best thing to do is find the tooth, keep it moist and get to a dentist. Your dentist can see whether the entire tooth or just part of it, came out. Your dentist can also determine whether to implant it again. If it is an adult tooth, follow the steps listed above.
For a cracked tooth, immediately rinse the mouth with warm water to clean the area. Put cold compresses on the face to keep any swelling down. See your dentist as soon as possible.
For toothaches, rinse your mouth with warm water to clean it out. Gently use dental floss to remove any food caught between your teeth. Do not put aspirin on your aching tooth or gums; it may burn the gum tissue. If the pain persists, contact your dentist.
If you think your jaw is broken apply cold compresses to control the swelling. Go to your hospital emergency department immediately.
For objects stuck in the mouth, try to gently remove with floss but do not try to remove it with a sharp or pointed instrument. The item might be painful or cause an infection, so see your dentist if you cannot remove it.
There are a number of simple precautions you can take to avoid accident and injury to the teeth:
- Wear a mouthguard when participating in sports or recreational activities.
- Avoid chewing any hard food or candies, all of which can crack a tooth.
- Use scissors, NEVER your teeth, to cut things.
