Emergency Dentistry doesn't always involve teeth, but may be the surrounding tissues. Dental emergencies can range from bacterial/fungal/viral infections to potentially a cracked tooth. A tooth that is falling out or fractured in some manner would also be considered an Emergency Dental situation. Many such occurrences happen with young children, or due to car accidents.
A Dental Emergency is rarely considered a medical emergency, and there is a very low threat to your life; however, all dental emergencies should be handled in a way that preserves the area damaged.
