Signs of a Dental Emergency

Maybe you’re not sure if you have a dental emergency — sometimes patients think their symptoms are normal. We recommend you seek professional help whenever you feel uncomfortable or if you experience an unusual sensation in your mouth, such as:
  • Toothache. See your dentist as soon as possible if you are feeling pain. There could be different causes behind a toothache — your dentist will help you treat it and find relief before it gets worse.
  • A loose tooth. Adults should never have loose teeth. A loose tooth may be caused by an injury or an infection. In either case, you need help from a dentist.
  • Bleeding gums. If your gums are bleeding/aching, it could be a sign of gum disease.
  • Chipped, cracked, or broken tooth. If left untreated, these may cause bacteria in the tooth, which could lead to a serious infection.
  • Sore jaw. If you have a swollen jaw, it could be a sign of infection. You may also notice a bad taste in your mouth.
  • Dental abscess. Symptoms include fever, a bad taste in your mouth, pus, and/or swelling. If you have any of these, seek immediate medical attention.

“Pain is the body’s way of telling us something’s wrong. It’s very rewarding for me to help my patients find relief and address these issues before they become a serious problem.” 

What To Do During A Dental Emergency

If you experience an injury involving your mouth, seek medical help as soon as possible. The faster you visit our emergency dentist, the better.
If you have a broken, cracked, or chipped tooth, try to keep it moist. To reduce swelling, apply a cold compress to the affected area.
If you’re experiencing a toothache, avoid applying any medication. Clean your mouth with warm water. Then, gently remove any food or other debris using dental floss. Use a saltwater solution to rinse and apply a warm compress on the affected area.
If your pain goes away, there still could be a problem going under the surface. If you’ve experienced any of these symptoms, visit our office in Overland Park so our emergency dentists can help you figure it out.
