What Qualifies as a Dental Emergency

Any dental problem is worrying and can be painful, but knowing what counts as a true dental emergency will help you decide the best course of action. Incidents that require emergency dental care include:

Knocked-Out Tooth: A tooth knocked out at play or in an accident is a definite dental emergency. Call our emergency dentist in Lindsay or Havelock immediately. The more quickly you see a dentist, the more likely the dentist can reinsert the tooth if you can bring it with you.

Fractured Tooth: Even if your tooth isn’t knocked out but it is broken, you have an emergency since it is very painful and the remaining piece of your tooth is fragile and can become infected easily.

Abscess and Infection: If you a tooth hurts so badly that you cannot bite down or eat only soft food, the tooth or underlying gum may have an abscess.

Severe Pain or Bleeding: If you experience oral bleeding or severe mouth pain that won’t stop within a half hour, see a dentist for emergency treatment.
