Dental Emergency | Emergency Dentistry at Studfield Dental Group

Dental emergencies can be many, of various natures, from dental infections to extreme swellings associated with fever, to dislodged fillings causing major sensitivity and many more.

If you have any of the following dental emergencies, we advise that you come and see us right away:

Dental pain

We can broadly categorize a tooth ache into two different sources of pain, those caused by the dental nerve or pulp, known as odontogenic pain, and those that arise in the gum or bone surrounding teeth, called peri-radicular pain.

Odontogenic or tooth pain could be both, acute or chronic in nature. The dental nerve is infected and causes severe pain in acute conditions and sometimes swells up from within, causing severe pulpitis and creates an abscess full of pus, which is quite painful with the pressure build up.

Chronic pulpitis is less painful but can get acutely exacerbated leading to pus drainage, and in both conditions, you need to see a dental professional as soon as possible due to the extreme nature of the pain.

You would need to start medication immediately and we would need to wash out and treat the infected area to allow it to heal, before actually removing the causative wisdom tooth.
