3 Signs You Need Emergency Dental Care

Dental emergencies can occur at any time, for a wide variety of reasons.

It is important to be able to recognize the signs of a dental emergency so you can take the proper steps to restore your oral health and avoid any long-term effects.

DDS Collingwood has helped hundreds of patients with their dental emergencies and will take all necessary precautions to provide you with top-quality dental care.

Signs You Need Emergency Dental Care

It can be difficult to determine what classifies as a dental emergency and what can wait a day or two.

We have put together this list of the top three most common signs you need emergency dental care. We are proud to serve the residents of Collingwood and the surrounding areas with top-quality dental services, no matter how big or small the issue is.

Knocked-Out Teeth

If your tooth has become dislodged from your mouth, it is important to act quickly to prevent any further damage or infection to the root of the tooth.

Make sure to retrieve the tooth, if possible, and begin by running it underwater to clean it off. If you are able to, reinsert the tooth into your mouth. If this isn’t possible, put the tooth in a glass of milk or water to transport it to the dentist. The quicker you are able to have your tooth reattached, the quicker your recovery time will be.

Contact us today if you require any further information on this subject, or if you require a tooth reattachment in the Collingwood area.

Infection or An Abscess

A tooth infection can lead to something called an abscess. An abscess is a pocket of pus caused by a bacterial infection in your mouth. Symptoms of an abscess include:

  • A persistent throbbing toothache
  • Fever
  • Sensitivity to hot and cold temperatures
  • Sensitivity to chewing
  • Swelling in your face or cheek
  • Difficulty breathing or swallowing

If you suspect you may have a bacterial infection that has caused an abscess, contact DDS Collingwood today to book an emergency dental appointment to prevent any unnecessary complications.

Toothache or Jaw Pain

Toothaches and jaw pain often appear out of the blue. This is something you should closely monitor. If the pain reaches a level where it is no longer tolerable this is considered a dental emergency.

There are few times when oral pains go away on their own, however, it isn’t unheard of. If you find the pain is intermittent, a likely cause of this is you suffer from TMJ.

TMJ has a negative impact on the joints that connect your jaw to your skull and is frequently caused by extreme teeth grinding. Another cause of jaw and tooth pain is untreated cavities. If you find yourself with unbearable pain in your mouth make sure to contact DDS Collingwood right away to book an emergency appointment.
