Dental emergencies can happen at any time. Oral injuries can be painful and should be treated by your dentist as soon as possible.
What are dental emergencies and how can I avoid them?
A dental emergency is when your tooth breaks, cracks, becomes loose, or is knocked out completely. Sometimes, a dental crown can come off your tooth, or your lips , gums, or cheeks may be cut. Some emergencies can be avoided if you take simple precautions, such as wearing a mouthguard while you're playing sports and avoiding hard foods that can crack or break your teeth.
