When faced with a dental emergency or pain, many people are at a loss of what to do. Just like a medical emergency, it is important to treat dental trauma promptly to avoid complications and risk permanent damage.
A common dental problem requiring emergency care is sudden tooth loss or breaks, usually caused by trauma or a fall.
Although dental accidents are not life threatening, getting immediate care from a dentist is necessary to help preserve the tooth and the smile's overall appearance.
Even small breaks or fractures in the tooth can cause nerve injuries through bacteria buildup in the soft pulp inside the tooth, potentially resulting in permanent damage if left untreated.
Other dental emergencies include:
Loose or knocked out tooth (place under tongue and seek help within the hour)
Deep cuts to the gums, tongue, lips, and cheeks
