What constitutes a dental emergency?

To a dentist, a "true" dental emergency is an urgent problem that needs attention to save a tooth or relieve your pain. To patients, it's anything that occurs with their oral health that is out of the ordinary—from lost dental crowns and fillings to excruciating toothaches and everything in between.
