Unfortunately, this is also the time of year when dentists often see more dental emergencies because people have more free time to engage in physical activities that make them prone to face trauma and dental emergencies. Whether it is a tooth knocked out by a soccer ball or a tooth cracked from a fall while hiking, knowing how to handle a dental emergency can save your teeth.
