 From a severe toothache to a broken tooth, several situations can be classified as a dental emergency: 


  • Tooth Broken Due to Repeated or Large Fillings

After repeated fillings, or if the fillings are especially large, it's possible for a tooth to break. Fillings often require removing portions of a tooth, but this can have the unfortunate consequence of breaking the tooth or causing the filling to fall out.


  • Acute Pulpitis Causing a Severe Toothache

The inflammation of a tooth's pulp is also known as acute pulpitis, and it's usually caused by trauma or tooth decay. If a change in air temperature triggers pain, immediate dental care may be necessary.


  • Tooth Abscess

A tooth abscess is caused by the infection of the tooth's root, and this can cause intermittent pain. Additional symptoms include gum line swelling, swelling of the patient's face and sometimes even the loosening of the tooth. While medication can help relieve pain temporarily, dental treatment is also required.


  • Gum Abscess

In the case of a gum abscess, food has gotten caught between the tooth and the gum, and has caused an infection in the gum. The symptoms of this can include bleeding and swollen gums, and it's important to receive dental treatment quickly.


If you are experiencing one of these dental emergencies, contact us immediately to book an appointment.



Tooth Pain Treatment

Have you ever dealt with unrelenting tooth pain? Tooth pain can be caused by a variety of reasons such as tooth decay, an abscessed tooth, a broken tooth, wearing down of teeth due to continuous motion or clenching teeth, or gum infection. If you experience symptoms like severe tooth pain, bad breath, or tooth pain accompanied by fever or headache, get in touch with a dentist. Depending on your situation, you may require emergency treatment or a general treatment such as a cavity filling or root canal.

Most Common Reasons for Tooth Pain


Tooth Infection Treatment

Sometimes, tooth pain happens due to a tooth infection, which requires expert attention. When bacteria get into the tooth through a chip, crack, or cavity, that is when a tooth infection occurs. A tooth infection can take place due to numerous reasons such as poor dental hygiene, a high-sugar diet or even dry mouth. Dry mouth can be due to ageing or side-effects of any medication.


Symptoms associated with tooth infection are:

  • Severe tooth pain
  • Bad breath
  • Foul taste in the mouth
  • Swelling of cheek
  • Sensitivity
  • Fever

If you're dealing with any of these symptoms, reach out to Northland Village Dental Centre immediately.


What is Not Considered as Emergency Dentistry Services


While some dental problems are considered dental emergencies, some problems don't require you to see a dentist on an urgent basis. For example, if you have food lodged between your teeth, or say there's a small chip or crack in your tooth, then you can book an appointment during normal office hours. Some dental issues that are not considered as an emergency are:

  • Lost filling, crown, or bridge

  • Dull toothache

  • Food lodged between teeth

  • A small chip or crack in the tooth
