Dental emergency is a broad, umbrella term used to describe an issue involving the teeth and supporting tissues that requires immediate treatment by the relevant professional. Although pain is a common signal that something needs to be looked at, dental emergencies do not always involve pain.
Pain can originate from the tooth, surrounding tissues or can have the sensation of originating in the teeth but be caused by an independent source. Fractures can occur anywhere on the tooth or to the surrounding bone, depending on the site and extent of fracture the treatment options will vary.
A dental filling falling out or fracturing is also considered a dental emergency as these can affect function and aesthetics, and usually interfere with eating and pronunciation; and as such should be tended to with the same haste as loss of tooth tissue.
All dental emergencies should be treated under the supervision or guidance of a dental health professional in order to preserve the teeth for as long as possible - always the healthiest option and the the primary goal of Care Dental doctors.
Any dental emergency like an injury to the teeth or gums can be potentially serious and should not be ignored. Ignoring a dental problem can increase the risk of permanent damage as well as the need for more extensive and expensive treatment later on.
