You probably have a good idea of what situations would be considered a medical emergency that warrants a visit to the emergency department. However, it can be more difficult to determine what types of situations don’t appear obvious that would warrant a visit to your emergency dentist in Burlington, Ontario.
The most urgent dental emergencies include permanent teeth that have been entirely or partially knocked out, teeth that have been broken or cracked partially or clean through, lacerations in the oral cavity that cause significant bleeding, and significant trauma to the tongue or lips. Swelling and pain from a suspected abscess or wisdom tooth should be evaluated by your dentist on an emergency basis.
Dental emergencies may also involve malfunction or damage to a semi-permanent appliance or device in the mouth. Emergency dental care is needed when you chip a tooth to preserve as much of the structure inside of the tooth as possible. It is a dental emergency when you lose or break a denture and when you lose or break a crown. Any tooth or gum related problem that keeps you from being able to eat solid food regularly should be treated as a dental emergency.
