What are dental emergencies?
There are many different types of dental emergency, including some things that people may not typically class as an ‘emergency.’ For example, a toothache or a dental cavity can both be classified as emergencies. This is true even if the toothache and/or cavity have been around for a long time. This is at least in part because bacteria are able to enter your teeth through a cavity, and if they do that they can cause you to have a very serious toothache. Often this toothache will be very sudden and sharp, but it may also be a persistent, minor pain which suddenly becomes a lot worse.
Another common dental emergency is a chipped or fractured tooth. An emergency dental appointment can treat this, and usually does so by smoothing out the damaged tooth, before bonding it with a tooth coloured composite to fill in the gap. Sometimes the treatment may need to be more extensive though, for example if the tooth root has been damaged, in which case a root canal procedure may be necessary. Whatever your dental emergency may be though, Hannah and our Queen’s Park Dental Team will be happy to look at and treat it.
