Dental emergencies are best defined by Dr. Monti Harpalani, as situations that arise within the oral cavity that require immediate attention. This may include several different problems, including:
Not all dental problems can be avoided. There are times when the unexpected occurs and requires the assistance of an emergency dental office. Other times, damage to the teeth may be avoided with the use of a mouthguard. Many high impact sports such as football, hockey, and soccer can significantly increase the chances of a patient experiencing a dental emergency. That is why most of these sports will strongly encourage and sometimes demand the use of mouthguards. Mouthguards are special appliances made for a patient to wear during high impact sports to protect their mouth from damage, reducing their risk of knocked out teeth or cut gum tissues.
