Tooth decay, bruxism (teeth grinding), and other conditions can slowly reduce the integrity of one or more of your teeth. When this happens it is possible for the tooth to crack or chip. This can happen during a teeth grinding episode during the night or biting down on an unexpected hard object, like an unpopped popcorn kernel.
If you have:
- Sudden pain in tooth or gumline
- Fractured, chipped or cracked teeth
- Oral abscess (bacterial infection)
- Broken braces or damaged oral appliance
- Loss of a filling, partial crown, crown, or other form of dental restoration
What to do for dental emergencies
Never try to diagnose a dental mishap on your own or try to treat it yourself.
If you have one or more teeth that are giving you pain we should get you in to see an emergency dentist as soon as possible.
There are many factors that could be responsible for the aching ranging from decay, needing a root canal, or more rarely, a pocket of bacterial infection (abscess).
You’ve lost or broken a tooth
If you have experienced a bite mishap or lost a tooth the first thing to remember is to stay calm.
It’s possible to save a tooth that has fallen out. It will need to be submerged in milk or your own saliva and brought in as fast as possible. If you need to rinse the tooth because it’s dirty, make sure to leave any root tissue untouched and intact as this will help us reattach it.
You’ve lost a filling or crown
If a crown or filling falls out please remain calm. We might be able to save the lost crown if you wash it off and attempt to hold it in place with toothpaste.
If we’re unable to reattach the crown we may need to make another crown for you. If a filling falls out there’s no need to try and save the filling. New material will be used.
When to go to a hospital
There are emergency situations that should be handled by a hospital. If you are experiencing any of these symptoms please remain calm get yourself to a hospital as soon as possible:
- If you have sustained a heavy hit to the jaw and are feeling intense pain when you try to talk or chew, your jaw might be broken.
- Intense bleeding from the mouth, lips or tongue.
- Difficulty breathing.
