Patients usually get dental emergencies because of accidents or neglect in oral care. Whether it’s a broken tooth because of an accident or fall, a chipped or cracked tooth when biting from a hard object, or pain from a wisdom tooth – these cases should be referred to an emergency dentist at the soonest possible moment.
You cannot and should not ignore a throbbing in your mouth or the pain in your jaw whenever you talk, bite, or smile.
When left for another day, more dental problems may arise – your tooth might break completely or your gums will suffer and start bleeding, which then causes bad breath and periodontitis.
