Dental emergencies can be especially nerve-wracking since a single moment can severely damage your teeth and mouth in spite of years of careful preventive care. Contact sports can be especially dangerous for your teeth, but regular accidents and unforeseeable circumstances can also be the cause of dental emergencies.
