What are dental emergencies?


As its name suggests, dental emergencies are situations that require quick and/or immediate dental attention. While dental emergencies are typically associated with dealing with painful oral and teeth issues, it is not always the case that the presence of pain is involved. The following are examples of situations that would be considered dental emergencies:






If you are experiencing a toothache, you will typically feel pain in or around a tooth. The pain you feel can indicate that there is something wrong with that tooth or region of your mouth. In some instances however, toothaches can also be the result of referred pain - meaning the pain is related to a problem that exists somewhere else in your body. 


Chipped/Broken/Knocked Out Teeth



Teeth chipping, breaking, or getting knocked out is usually caused by forceful impacts. This can be due to situations such as car accidents, sports related injuries, or even pre-existing dental issues including large cavities or lost fillings.


Sharp Objects Lodged in Teeth



Getting objects such as food is a common occurrence to most patients. A quick remedy is the use of dental floss to dislodge the food particles stuck between your teeth. However, sometimes people can get non-food materials stuck in their teeth which can cause an irritating or even painful feeling. When sharp objects are stuck in your teeth, it can be difficult to remove without the help of a clinic that assists patients with a dental emergency in Toronto.
