A dental emergency can be defined as a sudden development of severe discomfort or when an underlying condition in the tooth suddenly fails. A tooth extraction would be one example of a sudden emergency. If you bite into something just right and it destroys a filling, exposing the nerve root to air, this is an example of things festering and eventually exploding. This is excruciatingly uncomfortable, and time seems to stand still. These crises must be managed as soon as possible since else, worse problems like infections might occur.
Getting emergency treatment is quite easy. When you have a dental emergency, the first thing you should do is call your dentist’s office. They will have a phone number to call in case of an emergency. Usually, the office gets back to you right away and they’ll tell you where there’s an emergency dentist or make an appointment with you when they have an opening. Calling your dentist is the best thing to do right away.
