Some common dental emergencies include:
- Knocked out tooth
- Jaw or gum swelling
- Sensitivity or pain – which may be felt in the head or neck

- Emergency root canal therapy
- Emergency cosmetic treatment
If you have knocked out a tooth there are a few steps you should take quickly for the best chance at keeping your natural tooth.
- Pick up the tooth by the crown (not the root)
- If the tooth is dirty gently rinse it in milk or saliva (do not use soap or chemicals)
- Reposition the tooth in it’s socket if possible and apply gentle pressure
- Keep the tooth moist at all times (either in milk or inside your cheek)
- See a dentist immediately – time is critical
