General Dentistry Q & A

When would I need an emergency dentist?

Common problems that might require an emergency dentist include:

  • Severe toothache
  • Knocked-out tooth
  • Broken or loose braces
  • Badly chipped or broken teeth
  • Lost filling or crown
  • Loose tooth
  • Abscess
  • Gum, tongue, or cheek injuries where the bleeding won’t stop

One of the causes of tooth damage is playing sports. You can protect your teeth by wearing a mouth guard, but damage could still happen. Car accidents are another major cause of tooth injuries. You should visit the hospital if you injure yourself severely, but you need to see your emergency dentist about any tooth damage.

Severe and sudden toothache is a common reason for needing an emergency dentist. It might be that a small cavity has grown into a big one that requires a root canal. Or you have gum disease that’s making your gums recede, exposing the sensitive tooth and roots.

If you leave an infected tooth for too long, it can form an extremely painful dental abscess. An abscess is a major infection that can affect your jawbone and other parts of your mouth and might require oral surgery.
