What to do in a Dental Emergency?

A dental emergency is a dental problem that requires immediate attention. Not all dental problems are urgent. However, if the bleeding does not stop, the pain does not go away with medication, or a facial bone is broken, urgent dental care is needed.

If you have a dental emergency, the first thing you should do is contact your dentist for detailed instructions. Many dentists have emergency numbers that can be called outside normal business hours. If you don’t have a dentist, go to an emergency center or the nearest emergency room.

Examples of dental emergencies include:

  • Severe toothache
  • Badly cracked tooth
  • Knocked-out tooth
  • Extruded (partially dislodged) tooth
  • Dental abscess (swelling of your face and jaw)
  • Lost or broken dental restoration
  • Severe soft tissue injury (like a busted lip or deep cut)

Same-Day Urgent Appointments

The dentist you trust should be the first person you call for an emergency dentist appointment.
