Dental emergencies can happen anytime, anywhere. They can be caused by an accident, a fall, or even biting down on something hard. If you have a dental emergency, it's important to seek a dental appointment and treatment right away. Here's what you need to know about the most common types of dental emergencies, each of which requires its own unique treatment.
-Toothaches. A toothache is usually a sign that there is something wrong with your tooth. It could be a cavity, an infection, or something else entirely. If you have a toothache, it's important to see a dentist right away to get the problem diagnosed and treated.
-Broken teeth or dentures or implants. If you have a broken tooth, it's important to try to find the pieces of the tooth and bring them with you to the dentist. In some cases, the tooth can be repaired; in others, it will need to be extracted.
-Chipped teeth. A chipped tooth is usually not a serious emergency, but it can still be painful. If you have a chipped tooth, see your dentist as soon as possible so that he or she can determine whether or not the chip needs to be fixed.
