A dental emergency arises when there is sudden oral damage, which causes pain and limits or prevents oral activities such as eating.

It is similar to a medical emergency but involves damage to the gums, teeth, tongue, palate, jaw or inner cheeks and requires immediate attention by a dentist. Without dental treatment damage to the mouth may increase.

Dental emergencies may range from mild to severe and include:

  • Broken teeth or tooth loss
  • Infected wisdom teeth or cysts
  • Spreading ulceration and bleeding gums
  • Oral abscesses
  • Inflammation of the temporomandibular joint (TMJ)
  • Inflamed dental pulp (Pulpitis)

Oral pain, swelling and, in some cases, bleeding are all symptoms of dental damage that requires emergency treatment. As the mouth is neurologically connected to the head and body, other symptoms like headaches and nausea may be felt.

Causes Of Dental Emergencies

These types of dental emergencies may have different causes, such as an injury inflicted during sports or physical activity, trauma, a swollen mouth, bacterial infection, abnormal cell growth (neoplasm), disease, or poor dental habits.

Treatments For Dental Emergencies

Each dental emergency is evaluated on a case-by-case basis for diagnosis and treatment. Broken teeth may be saved through composite filling or be extracted for replacement with artificial teeth, such as bridges, dental implants and crowns. Root canal treatment may be necessary or oral surgery may be needed for infections. The dental care professionals at Ten Dental Facial are trained to manage dental and medical emergencies for patients across London.

Prevention Of Dental Emergencies

Leaving an oral condition untreated may not only lead to a dental emergency but can affect your overall health, particularly if a person has other medical conditions, such as diabetes or cardiac problems. People can avoid dental emergencies by being careful during physical activities, wearing mouth guards during sports, visiting the dentist regularly for check-ups, and seeking treatment early for any dental or oral concerns.

Emergency dental treatment is available from our London practices in Clapham High Street, and Balham.
