I lost a filling. How do I know if it’s an emergency?

Any time that a filling is lost or a tooth is broken, it is important to arrange an appointment with a dentist as soon as possible. This is even the case if the tooth is not sore or sensitive. The sooner the tooth can be treated, the less chance there is of the situation becoming a true emergency. Also, if treatment is sought quickly, the restoration is likely to be more routine and less expensive.
