Dental emergencies are conditions that require immediate intervention by a dental professional. Any condition ranging from severe toothaches, swollen and bleeding gums, broken tooth veneer or braces, a painful wisdom tooth, dislodged tooth filling, dental trauma, avulsed tooth, post-extraction complications, and jaw fracture come under the ambit of a dental emergency. Unlike other medical emergencies, dental emergencies may not be life threatening, however, you should rise to the occasion and act wisely.
Are you facing acute pain due to a toothache? As you might be aware, this condition is characterized by severe, spontaneous throbbing pain that might be exacerbated by a change in temperature in the mouth. In some cases, you might not be able to localize the pain and feel like it is radiating to the ears, neck, and forehead. For immediate relief, over-the-counter painkillers should help. However, it is of utmost importance that you consult with your dentist at the earliest. Dental pain caused by cavities can be treated with root canal treatment. In certain cases where this isn’t possible, extraction is advised.
Wisdom teeth are expected to erupt between 17- 21 years of age. Sometimes due to the lack of space in the mouth, or the teeth growing in the wrong direction, they may get partially or fully impacted. Partial impaction can encourage food impaction between the gum and the tooth. As it is difficult to keep this region of the mouth clean, the development of decay and gum infection is not uncommon. This can lead to severe pain, swelling of that side of the face and restricted mouth openings. The choice of treatment will depend on the severity of the infection and extent to which the tooth has erupted. Drug therapy followed by operculectomy or extraction is generally performed by an oral surgeon.
Bleeding while brushing or flossing is an early sign of gum disease. The onset of Gingivitis is characterized by red, inflamed, puffy gums. If treatment is delayed, Gingivitis can progress to Periodontitis, which is a condition in which the infection can spread beneath the gum line, eventually eating away the alveolar bone, which is a part of the jaw that supports the teeth. Bleeding from your mouth is not to be taken lightly – it is imperative that you schedule an appointment with a dentist right away.
Swelling in any part of the mouth or face is a sequela of a dental infection or injury. The most common cause of swelling is a dental abscess in which there is a collection of pus, due to an infected tooth or periodontal condition. This requires emergency medical intervention. The treatment modality includes drug therapy with antimicrobials, anti-inflammatories, analgesics, and drainage of the fluctuant swelling. Fascial space infections are serious complications that need immediate medical attention.
A tooth, depending on how it broke and how much of it is broken, may require immediate medical intervention. Enamel fractures are easier to fix with simple fillings. However, if the fracture line has seeped through and extends to the inner layers of the tooth, it can give rise to pain and sensitivity. Root canal treatment is sometimes needed.
A knocked out tooth might cause a person to panic. If you should ever face such a scenario, what you need to do is immediately hold the tooth by the crown and after rinsing it with water, if contaminated, be sure to soak it in milk, saline or your saliva. Bring it to your dentist within the first hour of injury – with the right expertise, reimplantation of the tooth is possible in most situations.
Broken veneers can cause tooth sensitivity and can also affect your appearance. Broken braces often irritate the soft tissue inside your mouth, and if left unattended, can also lead to laceration of the tissue. Try placing some gauze over the broken part and immediately visit your dentist. Tooth sensitivity can additionally be caused by a dislodged or broken filling. Upon evaluation, your dentist will follow the required steps to restore the broken filling.
Post extraction, complications like profuse bleeding and infection can sometimes occur. Patients are advised not to rinse their mouth for 24 hours, to prevent clot disturbance. Persistent bleeding even after this time frame may call for the need for the placement of a hemostatic agent – a substance that stops the bleeding, or a suture. In certain cases, investigations may be conducted to rule out bleeding tendency.
Dry socket is another painful condition that occurs due to the loss of a clot in the extraction socket. This is usually experienced between the third to fifth day after a tooth is extracted. It is characterized by severe pain radiating to the ear, eye, neck or temporal region, bad breath, an unpleasant taste and an exposed bone. This condition requires immediate treatment.

I did visit Dr. Sanoop George at Pauls Dental to get some advice and guidance regarding my daughter's tooth challenges. I am always impressed with the in-depth knowledge of Dr. Sanoop and how he translates it into simple language for us to be able to understand it.

Dr. Binoy Paul's Clinic at Oud Metha, Dubai is what I would unerringly recommend to anyone as scared and nervous about painful and uncomfortable dental treatments as I used to be until I met Dr, Binoy. At the very onset he makes one feel at ease with his friendly, chatty, warm, caring and enquiring vibe. He puts me totally at rest with explaining the problem and the steps he will take to tackle the problem with his procedure in which he is perfect. It is almost impossible for me to trade him for any other dental specialists during my long stays back in India or anywhere else, so addicted am I to his careful and gentle hands wherein a Root Canal procedure or any other cavity fillings are almost painless
Recently, I had a root canal treatment done at Dr Paul's Dental Clinic. I was very happy with the results. Dr. Paul is a real professional Endodontist with sufficient dental medical knowledge and excellent clinical skills! He also is a very caring, patient, gentle, kind person! Above all, reasonable prices!
I was having pain in the upper right side of my teeth and I was enduring the pain for almost a week. It was unclear if it’s because of a nerve or an impacted tooth. until I was referred to Dr. Binoy. He advised on doing a root canal on one of the molars. He is very patient, knowledgeable, and professional, and knowing that he is a specialist endodontist for root canal treatment, I know I am in good hands.
He’s very thorough in doing the procedure and right after the first session, the pain was gone!
I did not even have to take any pain medication because the pain was gone!
I highly recommend Dr. Binoy and his team, they really are a gem among the dental clinics in Dubai as they do their work properly. The ladies in the reception are also accommodating, very responsive, and very professional. I highly recommend them.
I visited Dr. Pauls Dental Clinic today and the service was amazing. Starting from the reception, everyone was friendly and helpful. I did a root canal treatment and I thought it would be painful and a little bit afraid. To my surprise, I didn't feel a thing! Dr. Binoy has the softest hands and the calmest voice. He did the procedure perfectly and comfortably. The nurses also are very proactive and quick when the doctor needs something. Dr. Binoy also advises you on what to do and really takes care of you like a family member. I have been to several other dental clinics here in Dubai for the past six years, but definitely, I will switch to Dr. Paul's Dental Clinic, because they have the best service. Looking forward to my next appointment. A happy patient!
If you are experiencing excruciating pain, swelling, broken or knocked out teeth, or bleeding from your mouth, you are most likely experiencing a dental emergency. In such situations, it is advised that you reach out to your dentist immediately.
Be sure to maintain proper oral hygiene and schedule regular dental checkups - a checkup at least once in 6 months. If you play a high contact sport, ensure that you use a mouthguard and helmet to protect your teeth and head, respectively, to avoid an emergency. You should also watch what you eat - biting down on something hard might lead to a chipped or broken tooth, so think before you bite!
Seeking professional assistance is the best solution for a dental emergency. Nevertheless, you can follow these steps as a quick fix during different types of emergencies. Rinse your mouth with some warm water and remove any food particles lodged between your tooth and gums using dental floss. Apply a cold compress to the outside of your cheek or mouth if you are experiencing bleeding or swelling. If a tooth has been knocked out, place it in a jar of saline or milk and take it with you to the dentist within the hour. And in case your orthodontic brace breaks, becomes loose or is dislodged, cover the ends with gauze until you meet your dentist.

Call your dentist immediately, as the displaced tooth would have to be repositioned and stabilised.
Schedule a visit with your dentist on an immediate basis. Your dentist will evaluate the situation and recommend as to whether it can be fixed back in or needs to be replaced. In the meantime, do not chew anything hard or sticky in the affected side of your mouth as it may result in a fracture of the tooth.
You should try to carefully remove it with dental floss. Never use anything sharp to pick your teeth as you might inadvertently damage your teeth and/or gums. Schedule an appointment with your dentist if you are unable to remove it yourself.
Knocked out or avulsed baby teeth are not reimplanted. However, it is advised that you consult a pediatric dentist to evaluate the situation.
Swallowing a very small quantity of toothpaste that contains fluoride usually does not cause any harm. Swallowing a large amount, however, might cause gastrointestinal problems. Ensure that your child stays hydrated and make them consume items with calcium, such as milk and cheese. Make sure that you schedule an emergency consultation with your dentist as well.
This occurs mostly due to damage to the pulp due to an infection or trauma. This should be addressed immediately. Ensure that you meet with your endodontist right away.
