What to do in a dental emergency:

Toothache: Call your dentist as soon as possible.

Loose or knocked out tooth: If you have a tooth that is loose or out of alignment, you should call your dentist for an emergency appointment right away. A knocked-out tooth is a dental emergency that requires urgent attention.

Broken, chipped or cracked tooth: If a tooth is chipped and doesn’t hurt, this usually does not constitute a dental emergency and you may be able to wait a few days to see a dentist, but call immediately. However, it is important to be careful while chewing so as not to chip it more. A cracked or fractured tooth is a serious issue constituting a dental emergency; call your dentist immediately for an emergency appointment.

Loose or lost crown or filling: A loose crown or filling doesn't necessarily constitute a dental emergency; however you should call or see your dentist as soon as possible.

Mouth, tongue or gum injury: Any trauma to the mouth that causes bleeding that can't be controlled with pressure or cold compress may require immediate medical attention. Call your dental office for an appointment.

Wisdom tooth pain: Wisdom tooth pain is not typically considered a dental emergency but should be evaluated in a timely manner to determine the cause.
