What is a Dental Emergency?

What is a Dental Emergency?You have heard the term before: Dental Emergency. But what is a dental emergency? Is it a toothache, a missing tooth, a cracked tooth, abscesses, or an injury to the mouth? Well, the answer is actually all of the above. A dental emergency is the overarching term used to describe any sort of trauma to the mouth, including the teeth and gums.

We know what you are thinking; “really, a toothache is a dental emergency?” Well, there are times when a toothache, abscessed tooth, or other oral health problems requires immediate attention. So, in these circumstances, yes, a toothache is a dental emergency. When this is the case, you need a dentist specializing in such care. He/she will be able to address the pain issues and help prevent further damage. These are often temporary fixes, designed to stabilize the situation until a permanent repair can be performed later.

Unfortunately, emergency dental services aren’t as readily available as you would think.
