Lost crowns and fillings:
Crowns are used to cover damaged or broken teeth. Fillings, on the other hand, are used to treat cavities. Eventually, it is possible for both of these things to slacken and fall out. A lost crown or filling can be painful, because the exposed tissue may be sensitive. Cold and hot temperatures will cause discomfort. While a lost crown or filling might not be as serious a dental emergency as a chipped or broken tooth, you need to get it fixed instantly.
Broken dentures means difficulty in eating food and talking. It can make everyday tasks arduous and trying. If you can't eat properly, the situation calls for emergency care.
