An urgent dental emergency is a situation where a tooth is damaged, in pain, or at risk of permanent damage. There are also non-urgent dental emergencies, where a problem occurs that needs to be treated quickly, but can wait a few days if needed. But how can you tell the difference? Would you know what to do if you suddenly encountered a broken, knocked-out, or excruciatingly painful tooth? Knowing what to do ahead of time will help you act quickly and correctly in the event of an emergency, which can sometimes make all the difference between saving and losing a tooth.
