What counts as a dental emergency?

Never delay treatment, because dental problems won’t go away without help. The following would be considered a dental emergency:

  • Chipped or broken teeth with sharp edges
  • Knocked out tooth
  • Toothache that keeps you awake
  • Swelling in your cheek, jaw or gum
  • Bleeding that won’t stop when you bite into gauze

Self care at home in an emergency

If you have a dental emergency out of hours and have to wait for treatment, there are things you can do to control your pain.

  • Sleep with your head more elevated than usual
  • Use over the counter pain medication
  • Hold a cold compress on the side of your face
  • Rinse your mouth with a salt water solution
