Dental Emergencies

In this sense, trauma to teeth and their supporting
tissues.  This involves injuries to the dental hard tissues
enamel, dentine and cement), the pulp and the alveolar
, to concussion of the tooth to avulsion of the
tooth and its
re-implacement within its socket.

This is a broad subject and other people explain it far
better than me.

Regardless though, I list here very useful websites and
also a variety of articles about dental trauma.
