What Dental Problems Are Treated in the Emergency Dental Clinic?

Here are some of the most common dental emergency cases that we handle in our comfortable and well-equipped dental office.


Toothache and pain in and around the teeth is a common problem, particularly among patients with poor oral hygiene. It can be due to a cavity, inflammation, or receding gums. There are many other causes of toothache. Tooth decay is one of them. In this case, rinse your mouth with water. Brush your teeth and use dental floss to remove the food particles trapped between your teeth. Use painkillers if you have severe pain and swelling and try to visit the emergency dentist immediately.

Knocked out tooth

In this case, hold the tooth from the crown and rinse it with warm water. Never touch its root. Try to place the tooth in a container of milk or water and visit the emergency dentist immediately.

Jaw fractures

If you feel your jaw is broken, refer to the emergency dental clinic as soon as you can.

Tooth fractures

Rinse the area with physiological serum and put the cold compress on the area. If the fractured tooth edge is sharpened, cover it with paraffin until you get to the emergency dental office.

Bitten lip or tongue

Wipe the wound with a cloth and put the cold compress on it to prevent further swelling. If the bleeding persists, head to the emergency dental clinic. Loose tooth If a permanent tooth is loose, it a sign of a severe problem. In this case, you have to head to the emergency dental office to find out the main reason for it and have it treated.

Chipped tooth

In this case, to prevent bacteria from entering the tooth, you should visit the emergency dentist as soon as possible. Try to find the particle and take it to the dental office.

Traumatic injuries

If soft tissue is involved, rinse the area with warm water and put gauze on the desired area for 5 minutes to prevent bleeding. Try to find the broken part of the tooth and put it in a glass of water until you get to the emergency dental office.

Tooth Filling

Breaking Cracks can occur in the tooth, and sometimes in a filled tooth. Your tooth may be broken due to trauma or tooth grinding. Fortunately, it can usually be treated without tooth extraction.

Wisdom Tooth Eruption

Jaw or neck swelling, difficulty in opening the mouth, and pain in the mouth are symptoms of wisdom tooth growth. Signs of the eruption of wisdom teeth can be different from person to person, and therefore treatment will be different. Our experienced emergency dentist takes an x-ray to examine the position of your wisdom teeth and provides the best treatment for you.
