Man with a toothache

What is considered a dental emergency?

Are you wondering if what you are experiencing is considered a type of dental emergency? What should you do if it is, should you drop everything that you are doing and go to the dentist immediately or could it be as promptly as possible?

Drop everything that you are doing RIGHT NOW:

  • If you have a tooth abscess and your face has swelled up, you need to go NOW.

As soon as possible or promptly:

The only condition where you have to drop everything that you are doing would be severe facial swelling from a very bad tooth abscess. That is the pinnacle of dental emergencies and you should contact one of our long island city dentists immediately!

The reason why we place utmost importance on the swelling is because the swelling can spread to and block your airway. That will cut off your ability to breathe, which makes it life threatening. So, yes a tooth infection can kill you.

All of the other situations, if you are unable to secure a dental appointment there is always tomorrow. You may be in some pain and experience some discomfort but it is at least not life threatening.
