Tips on handling some dental emergencies
Dental emergencies as a result of an accident or trauma can occur at any time. Whenever a dental emergency strikes, it is crucial to have a presence of mind, think actively and follow an agile approach which can further help you protect your oral health.

Do all oral injuries require Emergency Dentistry?

Dental injuries can be of various types. While some require immediate attention others do not require an immediate visit to the dentist and can be treated at home. However, for one to analyze whether his or her injury falls under an emergency case can be misleading. Some cases that fall under Emergency Dentistry include:

  • Oral infection
  • Damage to pre-existing dental work
  • Broken, Cracked or Chipped Teeth
  • Sports-related injuries or an incident that involves head trauma
  • Excruciating toothaches
  • Broken or dislocated jaw
  • Knocked out tooth 
  • Lip or tongue bite
