Is a tooth infection serious?

Yes. Though some may be more severe than others, all infections are serious as they can spread throughout your mouth and your body if left untreated.

Should I go to an ER with my dental emergency?

When it comes to treating dental emergencies, hospitals are very limited. It is important to note that they are unable to perform any dental procedures, but they may be able to offer you medication to help fight off infection or to ease your pain.

Is a broken tooth a dental emergency?

Sometimes. You should always see your dentist as soon as possible if you have a broken tooth. But those that are broken down to the gum line or that have exposed the pulp area of the tooth may be treated as an emergency.
