Any dental problem that needs immediate treatment to stop bleeding, alleviate severe pain, or save a tooth is considered an emergency. This consideration also applies to severe infections that can be life-threatening.

Dental emergencies may include:

- Uncontrolled bleeding

- Cellulitis or a diffuse soft tissue bacterial infection with intra-oral or extra-oral swelling

- Trauma involving facial bones

- Severe dental pain from pulpal inflammation

- Pericoronitis or third-molar pain

- Surgical post-operative osteitis

- Abscess, or localized bacterial infection

- Tooth fracture

- Final crown/bridge cementation

- Biopsy of abnormal tissue

- Extensive dental caries or defective restorations

- Suture removal

- Denture adjustment on radiation/ oncology patients

- Denture adjustments or repairs when function impeded

- Replacing temporary filling on endo access openings

- Snipping or adjustment of an orthodontic wire
