Dental emergencies are frightening and often painful

Dental emergencies are quite frightening and often painful. Prompt treatment is almost always required to alleviate pain and to ensure the teeth have the best possible chance of survival.

Sometimes teeth become fractured by trauma, grinding or biting on hard objects. In other cases, fillings, veneers, crowns and other restorative devices can be damaged or fall out of the mouth completely.

If there is severe pain, severe toothache or sensitivity, abscess, swelling, it is essential to make an appointment with the dentist as quickly as possible. In most cases pain is an indicator that something has gone wrong and needs urgent attention.
