What Are the Most Common Types of Dental Emergencies?

Oral injuries are one of the most common types of dental emergencies. These emergencies typically include: teeth which are cracked, chipped, broken, loose or knocked-out; and injuries to your gums, jaw, tongue, lips, and cheeks.

Toothaches are also a very common dental emergency. A serious toothache may indicate a severe cavity or even a tooth infection. Immediate care is recommended to get relief from your pain and discomfort, and increase the ability to restore and save your tooth.

Loose or missing dental work is also considered a dental emergency because this can leave your weakened enamel exposed to bacteria and acid, causing further complications like an infection.

What Should I Do During a Dental Emergency?

  • Contact Scarsdale Smiles for a same-day appointment. Immediate care is the best way to save your tooth, get relief from pain and discomfort, and prevent further oral health complications.
  • Recover your dental work or your tooth (if applicable to your situation).
  • If you have time before your appointment, take steps to treat pain, discomfort and bleeding. Over-the-counter medicine like ibuprofen or naproxen can be used to help with pain, gauze can be applied to stop bleeding, and an ice pack can be applied to the cheek to help with discomfort and swelling.
  • Above all, schedule an appointment at  Scarsdale Smiles as soon as you can to treat the emergency and move forward with a permanent solution for your oral injury or dental emergency.
