With the holidays here at last, North York dentists like Downsview’s make their every effort to collect some last-minute, urgent clientele… because, after all, dental emergencies never take a holiday. And this business is prepared at all hours to do what is needed in order to accommodate. It’s known to work with some of the most common and even quite the uncommon dental emergency needs. If left untreated, these could fester within the mouth and become far worse, even in a day’s span, so that’s why this business now encourages anyone and everyone to hurry in and get care, especially when it’s an emergency or potential emergency, such as the following: chipped or cracked teeth (or those that appear about to chip or crack sometime soon), fillings lost, broken or loose teeth, severe bad breath or the appearance of infection, and more.
Signs of a Potential Dental Emergency “to Watch Out for”
The first obvious sign the company recommends to watch out for is that of any type of ongoing bleeding, or severe internal pain experienced around any particular tooth, set of teeth, or gum area. While this may not be an emergency, necessarily (as determined by the dental examiner), it is still considered a potential hazard “warning sign” that should always be checked out either way. The dentist or orthodontist will then make the final decision.
Also, another sign can be that of an abscess, which is even potentially life-threatening. Knots on the gums can be one such thing to look for as can swelling on the gums. Even swelling on the face, which may often result from that, is another visible sign that falls under this.
In addition, there’s also a few things to consider, which are not dental emergencies, that one ought to know about as well. For instance, a tooth that’s been chipped or cracked may or may not become an emergency requiring urgent care, and here’s how one can tell. First of all, if the fracture resulting is severely painful, and only grows more so with each passing hour (sharp fragments from the cracks or chips causing internal trauma within the mouth), then it’s an emergency. If the pain is mild or not really felt, then it could wait 2-3 days.
