Emergency Dentistry Q & A

What is emergency dentistry?

Emergency dentistry compasses an assortment of services to best fit your needs in times of urgency. The specific treatments and services depend on your unique circumstance. Sometimes services include generalized cleaning procedures or more invasive treatment like immediate surgery. Emergency dentistry is specific to your unique needs. 

What does emergency dentistry treat?

Emergency dentistry helps diagnose, treat, and maintain a variety of injuries. Some common causes of emergency dentistry include:


  • Sudden bleeding
  • Cracked or missing teeth
  • Severe pain in or around the mouth
  • Prolonged bleeding
  • Damage to special equipment like braces or implants


Accidents don’t always categorize into specific boxes. Any part of the mouth is prone to sudden damage at any given time. If you feel uncertain, the safest option is always to call to see the dentist immediately. It’s better to be proactive than to delay medical attention.

Why is emergency dentistry important?

It’s essential to seek medical attention as soon as possible. The sooner the dentist treats an emergency, the greater the likelihood of success while mitigating additional damage. Prolonging treatment increases the risk of other ailments, such as further infection, structural abnormalities, and health conditions affecting other body systems. 


When an emergency occurs outside operating hours, the office voicemail provides additional instruction. Contacting your local hospital is also an option when this occurs. 

What treatment options does emergency dentistry include?

Before the team can proceed with any treatments, they must first identify the source of your condition or injury. Treating the direct cause of the problem ensures future issues don’t occur, rather than masking symptoms.


Furthermore, it’s critical to stop any bleeding and provide immediate pain relief, if applicable. Once achieved, the team generates a treatment plan for your unique condition, dictated by the severity of your emergency. This may be as simple as fixing a broken wire on braces or requiring an immediate root canal. Other common treatments include:


  • X-Rays
  • Oral surgery
  • Crown and bridge replacement
  • Removal of infection or decay
  • Examination of the surrounding and damaged areas
