Dental injuries and emergencies are distressing to Parents and children. Unfortunately they are very common. One third of children will experience some form of dental trauma, and an even larger number of children will experience a dental emergency.

Detailed below are some of the most common childhood dental emergencies, in addition to helpful advice on how to deal with them.
