Imagine waking up at 2 AM one night from throbbing mouth pain. Tears run down your eyes as you worry the pain will only get worse as you stay up all night waiting for your local dentist to open later that morning. Dental emergencies happen spontaneously and are not something we can easily just plan out. Whether you’re experiencing painful toothaches, broken or cracked teeth and/or painful swelling, it’s definitely something you should not have to tolerate.

If you are unsure if you need to see an emergency dentist, here are the common dental emergencies:
- Broken or fractured tooth
- Loosened or knocked out tooth
- Biting lip or tongue with excessive bleeding
- Painful Swelling
- Injury to your jaw
If you experience any of these dental emergencies, you should always remain calm and relaxed. Depending on your case, there are things you can do at home to help ease your pain. For instance, if you have a broken tooth, try placing the tooth back in the socket, while biting down on gauze. If you’re experiencing painful toothaches or swelling, gargle salt and lukewarm water to relieve irritation and reduce swelling.
