Dental emergencies can happen at any time. Pain can originate from the tooth, the surrounding tissues, or can have the sensation of originating in the teeth but be caused by an independent source (Orofacial pain).
From a broken/chipped/fractured/knocked out tooth, toothache, swelling to sensitivity, and pain in the teeth, gums, and jaw can be examined by a dentist. Your dentist will discuss specific treatment options with you for relieving your pain. In some cases, when an infection is involved, you may be required to take antibiotics prior to treatment.
The best way to prevent dental emergencies is to be proactive in your oral hygiene and have routine dental check-ups. During these visits, the dentist will check for loose/broken fillings and crowns as well as any signs of decay, infection, and gum disease.
