Any pain in the mouth, teeth or gums may be considered a dental emergency. Common situations include oral trauma, prolonged bleeding, loose fillings or crowns, chronic toothaches, abscesses, swelling, tooth/teeth loss, jaw pain, bitten cheeks or lips, or chipped/fractured teeth.
It is important to receive a professional dental assessment as soon as possible if you or a loved one encounters a dental emergency. Even if pain is minor, it could indicate the presence of a more serious underlying issue; which could worsen over time if left untreated.
