What Classifies as an Emergency Dental Toronto Procedure?
What Classifies as an Emergency Dental Toronto Procedure?
June 15, 2017

Although cosmetic dentistry does not improve or enhance the alignment of your bite, it brightens your smile. Conventionally, constructive cosmetic dentistry aims to improve your smile, while eliminating any imperfections that are likely to minimize your confidence levels.


Therefore, it is common to think that cosmetic surgeries are not emergency dental Toronto procedures. Here’s why:


No alleviation of pain: Emergency dental processes involve procedures that alleviate feelings of pain and discomfort.  However, cosmetic dentistry involves improving the alignment and overall aesthetic of your smile. Although your teeth are straightened, and possibly brightened, there is no significant pain alleviated through the cosmetic procedures administered.


No bleeding: Although cosmetic dentistry may involve the avulsion of some teeth, it does not cause any significant bleeding. Cosmetic surgeries differ from conventional dental emergencies because, during an emergency procedure, a lost tooth may cause bleeding or excessive blood loss. Therefore, it is common for emergency dental Toronto to disregard cosmetic dentistry as an urgent matter.


Not curative: Emergency and some non-emergency dental procedures are curative in nature. Cosmetic dentistry does not cure dental or oral infections. As a result, it an aesthetic procedure that does adhere to dental health.


No inflammations: It is common for dental infections and other oral complications to cause gum or facial inflammation. Cosmetic dentistry only caters to your aesthetic needs, therefore, it is difficult to view it as an emergency situation.


 In order to understand the classification of emergency dental Toronto procedures, expert advice is required. This is critical in helping you decide whether a situation is an urgent or non-urgent matter. Emergency dental procedures tend to be more cost effective, and therefore, one can stay within their budget and provide their family with affordable dental care.
