What causes a dental emergency?
Dental emergencies can be brought on by a variety of reasons. Teeth can become broken or dislodged through physical trauma such as being hit in the mouth, falling and hitting your face, or biting something too hard. Other times dental emergencies are caused by illnesses like autoimmune diseases or stomach issues causing acid reflux. Dental emergencies can occur through dental work that doesn’t take or was installed incorrectly, and, sometimes, untreated dental issues like cavities or infection can progress to a point of becoming an emergency.
