Home Remedies for Toothache

Signs You Need Emergency Dental Care

How do you know if a minor toothache is a cause for greater concern? While many dental problems can wait for a calendar date, sometimes you need emergency dental services to solve a problem before it gets significantly worse.

1. You Have a Loose Tooth

As an adult, having a loose tooth is cause for concern. Loose teeth can signal something more serious going on, like a tooth injury or a localised infection. During your emergency dental appointment, we will use an oral exam and dental x-rays to determine the cause of the infection.

2. You Have a Severe Toothache

If you have a severe and persistent toothache, it is time to see a dentist to uncover the cause. While home remedies are great to lessen the pain temporarily, tooth pain that will not go away if often due to a greater issue.

3. Your Gums are Bleeding

Seeing your gums bleed after you floss is fairly normal, but if you experience a large amount of blood, this could be an indicator of gum disease or gingivitis. Catching gum disease early is key to prevention and restoring your teeth to optimal health. 

4. You Have Facial Swelling

Cheek and Gum swelling often indicates an infection of the gums or a tooth abscess. A Dental Abscess is an infection at the base of a tooth. This is an Urgent dental appointment required if left untreated more serious infections may spread to the face & towards the airways.

5. Your Teeth are Sensitive to the Cold

Cold Sensitivity is a more common tooth symptom. Cold sensitivity can mean several things, some of those including worn tooth enamel, receded Gum line, tooth decay, or other issues such as cracks. Once you notice some semi regular sensitivity it is best to schedule an appointment to work out the underlying cause for this. Some things like dental recession may need to be monitored however dental cracks can be a more serious concern.
