Regular brushing, flossing, and dentist check-ups help to prevent most dental issues. However, from time to time a dental emergency arises which needs immediate treatment from a dentist.

  • Extreme pain in a tooth or the jaw may indicate an infection and needs treatment without delay.
  • A broken tooth which is painful may have reached the pulp, and without treatment the pulp may die.
