Dental Emergencies

Unexpected and adverse events occur frequently, ranging from a burst water pipe to a flat tire to a myocardial infarction, a heart attack. Our mouths and teeth are no exception to these events which lead to a dental emergency. While there are multiple reasons why a dental emergency occurs, there are a handful that are more common than others.


People lose teeth for a variety of reasons and as humans only have two sets of teeth, they often need to be replaced with artificial teeth. Once the primary teeth exfoliate, we only get one chance to keep our permanent teeth healthy. Whether it be due to decay, periodontal disease, trauma, or other various reasons, once teeth are lost they need to be replaced.
