What is emergency dentistry?

Emergency dentistry is a service available at Arden Dental Group that helps you if you experience sudden, serious problems with your teeth.

Your emergency dentist can carry out urgent work to fix certain issues or offer temporary solutions and pain relief until you can undergo more extensive work.

What problems require emergency dentistry services?

In some cases, it's clear you have a dental emergency because of the degree of pain or visible injuries. In other cases, you might not be sure whether your condition qualifies as an emergency.

Examples of issues that Arden Dental Group considers require emergency dentistry include:


A crack or break in a tooth or having a tooth knocked out are all dental emergencies. Broken teeth can be extremely painful if the damage exposes the nerve, and these kinds of injuries are vulnerable to infection.

If a tooth comes out, prompt action could mean your dentist can put it back in, providing you keep the tooth alive in the meantime. Storing it in your cheek or a cup of milk is the best way to achieve this.

Jaw injuries

A jaw injury that's swelling and causing severe pain, or one that's stopping you from opening and closing your mouth, requires emergency attention.

Tooth inflammation

If you have extreme pain when biting down or your gums become dark and discolored, you might have inflammation in the tooth that could require an emergency root canal.

You should also call Arden Dental Group if a crown or bridge breaks.
