Common dental emergency symptoms

If you are experiencing any of the symptoms below, you may need emergency dental care and treatment. This list is non-exhaustive.

Dental pain can occur for a variety of reasons; it can be due to the sensitive part of the tooth being exposed because of gum recession, dental decay or if the nerve has become infected. If the pain is persistent, it would be recommended to see a dentist for consultation.

Teeth have the tendency to break when they are heavily decayed, filled or have old deteriorating fillings. Emergency dental treatment may involve a temporary or permanent filling. Traumatic injury to the front teeth particularly can be a problem aesthetically, we always aim to give you a temporary false tooth so you can continue your life as normal until a permanent solution can be made.

Facial swelling can come about for a variety of reasons other than teeth, such as blocked salivary glands or infected skin cysts. Most common however is if there is a swelling around the gum, it is likely to be a dental problem. Facial swelling that has come about over a short period of time are usually a sign of infection, which require urgent emergency dental treatment.
