What is considered a dental emergency?
Some dental emergencies are painful, while others may not cause you any pain. It is essential to know whether your condition is an emergency and needs to be dealt with immediately or if it can wait until you can schedule a regular dentist appointment.
Any sudden pain in your teeth or gums should be considered an emergency, as it may be a sign of infection. However, many dental emergencies aren’t painful. Some dental emergencies include:
- Fillings that have fallen out
- Badly chipped teeth
- Knocked out teeth
- Crowns that have fallen out
- Bleeding gums
- Sudden onset of pain in your teeth or gums
