Why you should keep us in mind for Emergency Dental Needs

‘Dental emergency’ is a broad term. It describes an issue of high importance involving the teeth and supporting tissues. It requires immediate attendance and/or treatment by the relevant professional. Dental emergencies do not always involve pain, although this is a common signal that something may be amiss. Dentists in Parramatta list multiple situations that might need you to seek emergency dental care:

  • Loose teeth
  • Severe toothaches
  • Bleeding and/or aching gums
  • A swollen jaw
  • Dental abscesses
  • Lip numbness
  • Cracked and/or chipped teeth

As an adult, your teeth have properly matured, and as such, you shouldn’t experience loose teeth. They may be an indication of tooth injury or a localised infection. These injuries may result in serious pain. Since there may be various bacteria behind the infection, it is important for you to seek a professional dentist’s advice.

There may be various causes of toothache. As such, a proper diagnosis is crucial for a lasting toothache solution. Bleeding gums are also a red flag as they may be signs of early gum disease. Recurring or excessive bleeding gums and gum recession may be an indication of serious periodontitis. Aching or swollen gums may be an indication of tooth injury or an infection. Under such conditions, we recommend consulting your local dentist immediately.

A swollen jaw may indicate a serious infection such as a salivary gland infection, or an infection relating to a tooth. A dental abscess should have you well on your way to an emergency dentist appointment. A dental abscess is a collection of pus that forms inside the teeth or in the gums that are caused by a bacterial infection. Typically, they are caused by a cavity left untreated, or severe gum disease. If the infection spreads, you may also develop a fever or feel unwell.

If you were experiencing a painful toothache then suddenly have no feeling at all, this could be a sign that the infection has spread to the root of your tooth. Pay close attention to your toothaches, as they may be an indicator of potentially major dental issues that may require emergency care. Chipped or cracked teeth are an immediate red flag, and you should seek emergency dentist services as soon as possible.
