True dental emergencies are rare, but when you need immediate care, emergency dentistry can be a huge help in relieving pain and stabilizing your dental structure. Unfortunately, many people don't know when or where to go or what qualifies as a dental emergency. This leads to enduring unnecessary pain, or spending money seeing professionals not able to treat the problem.
What Exactly is a Dental Emergency?
Certain problems are best seen by your regular dentist. These things include regular check ups and routine dental care, or for problems where your oral health is not in immediate danger. Dental emergencies include injuries that threaten the health of your teeth, gums, or jaw and need immediate attention. These injuries include things like:
- Teeth that have been knocked out
- Loosened or fractured teeth
- Broken jaw
- An abscess
- Tooth pain
