Dental Emergency or Not?

A cracked or chipped tooth or a minor toothache are not the sort of dental problems that merit an immediate visit to the dentist but some problems certainly do!

Any dental issues should always be brought to the attention of the dentist but minor complaints can wait for an appointment. So, which problems should never be dismissed lightly?

Generally speaking, the degree of pain or the amount of bleeding will tell you how serious a problem may be and this is true in cases of:

Severe pain in the jaw or mouth including persistent bad toothaches

Heavy bleeding that will not stop or recurs frequently

Swelling of the face, gums, jaw or tongue

Although the vast majority of dental issues will have a simple explanation and cure chances should not be taken as oral problems can affect the body and even, in extreme cases, can result in a potentially life-threatening infection if not treated as quickly as possible.

Avoiding serious problems is best achieved by following a good dental health regimen that includes brushing and flossing the teeth daily and, most importantly, regular check-ups and screenings at the dentist.
