Dental emergencies can be frightening and often painful. It is imperative to know techniques to help alleviate pain and help ensure the best recovery until you can see your dentist.
It is not uncommon for teeth to become fractured by trauma, grinding or biting on hard objects. Other scenarios that would require emergency treatment is when fillings, crowns and other restorative devices are damaged or fall out of the mouth completely. If there is severe pain, it is essential to make an appointment with the dentist as quickly as possible. Pain caused by dental emergencies almost always gets worse without proper treatment, and dental issues can seriously jeopardize physical health.
