What is a dental emergency?
A dental emergency is any oral health condition that threatens your well-being, including a toothache. Common dental emergencies include:
- Jaw pain
- Jaw swelling
- Broken tooth or restoration
- Tooth or restoration knocked out or knocked loose
One of the most common dental emergencies we see is root infections that require emergency root canal therapy. Signs of a root infection include:
- Tooth sensitivity
- Tooth pain
- Gum blister
- Jaw pain or swelling
With a root infection, you may not have every symptom. In fact, you can have a root infection without any symptoms if the nerve is damaged and does not conduct pain. In these cases, your dentist will discover the infection during your routine dental exam and schedule you for root canal therapy in short order.
Root canal therapy means removing the infected tooth root and any pulp, closing the area with a temporary filling, and placing a permanent filling or quality dental crown during a follow-up appointment. Of course, we make sure the area is sufficiently numb before starting treatment.
