Dental emergencies can be caused by trauma to the face and mouth or injuries while playing sports. Some dental emergencies occur when a dental restoration is not well maintained or is not replaced when it should be. Dental emergencies are very serious and should never be ignored. If not treated, dental emergencies can cause permanent damage. More extensive and extensive dental treatment is also needed later if dental emergencies are not treated.
