Too often, patients experiencing apparent dental emergency symptoms visit the hospital ER. According to the American Dental Association (ADA), a person visits the ER for dental conditions every 15 minutes (source). Unfortunately, hospitals are not equipped to handle dental emergencies.
Since the outbreak of the pandemic in March 2020, the ADA has taken steps to reduce the burden on hospitals by reclassifying dental emergencies.
According to the ADA, dental emergencies “are potentially life-threatening and require immediate treatment to stop ongoing tissue bleeding [or to] alleviate severe pain or infection” (source).
Happily, most patients who visit the ER for dental emergencies can be safely guided to an emergency dentist.
Don’t worry if you feel your situation is not “potentially life-threatening.” Dental offices that specialize in emergency dental care will have a more expansive view of what constitutes a real dental emergency.
If you landed on this page, you might be asking yourself, “Do I have a dental emergency?”
Examples of true dental emergencies vary from patient to patient and may involve various factors, including age, health status, and pain tolerance. However, beyond sudden trauma, the root cause of most emergency dental visits is poor oral health.
More than a quarter of all American adults have untreated tooth decay, and half of all adults aged 30 years or older have signs of gum disease (Source: CDC). Untreated, many oral problems can evolve into emergencies.
So how do you know when you’ve crossed the threshold from dental problem to dental emergency? In most cases, the answer comes down to injury and pain. A chipped or cracked tooth might be a mere bother, but a chipped or cracked tooth with severe pain is likely an emergency. Tooth pain with bleeding is likely an emergency. And, finally, of course, the potential loss of a tooth is an emergency.
In most cases, if you have to ask, “Do I have a dental emergency,” you should call your dentist! If you are experiencing the symptoms of a potential emergency, please call our office in Upper Darby, PA today: 610-228-4407.
We tell all patients: to preclude any dental problems, emergency or otherwise, be proactive about your oral health, supplementing your daily brushing and flossing with routine check-ups.
However, we also understand that emergencies happen, and in the case of a real dental emergency, we encourage all patients to take immediate action.
