What Constitutes a Dental Emergency? Top 5 Dental Emergencies

Sometimes a dental issue can wait. However, it’s necessary to see a dentist and receive emergency dental treatment as soon as possible in other situations. How can you tell if you’re experiencing a dental emergency? Here are some of the most common and serious dental issues that immediately warrant a call to your Providence or Central Falls, RI dentist.


It’s essential to take care of a knocked-out tooth within the hour. If we don’t, the tooth might not survive. Call us right away, and we’ll provide you with instructions regarding how to care for the tooth. If, for some reason, you can’t get ahold of us (or if you’re out of town), go to your nearest emergency room.

A Broken

A broken tooth may or may not be symptomatic. Even if you’re not experiencing pain, it’s important to have your dentist evaluate the tooth as soon as possible. They can check for dental decay, nerve damage, or a deep crack that can lead to further tooth breakdown.

Loss of a Crown,
Bridge, Veneer, or Filling

Any restoration that comes off needs to be replaced as quickly as possible. If we don’t replace it, your teeth can start shifting, and the existing restoration might not fit. Additionally, when a restoration comes off, the tooth is exposed, making it susceptible to pain, sensitivity, damage, and decay.

An Object Stuck in
or Under Your Gums

You might think getting a corn kernel stuck in your gums isn’t a big deal – that it’s just irritating. Unfortunately, if an object isn’t removed from the gums, it can cause major problems, such as a bacterial infection.

Unexplained Pain,
Inflammation, Swelling, or Bleeding

Facial swelling, a toothache, or bleeding gums are signs of something wrong. Getting a diagnosis right away is imperative to your oral health.
