Dental emergencies happen. Anything from contact sports to hard foods can be responsible for an emergency trip to the dentist, but how urgent is it really? What type of situation means that you need to find a dentist near you to treat your emergency as soon as possible?
There are several situations where it is urgent to seek immediate or same-day treatment. These situations include: knocked out teeth, lost fillings or crowns, cracked or broken teeth, as well as dislodged or lose teeth. Knowing you need immediate care can mean the difference between saving or losing your tooth. There are certain steps you can take in these situations to help improve the outcome, and hopefully save your tooth. If you would like to know what action to take for the specific situation please read our page on dental emergencies here for a more detailed description.
