Emergency medicine aims at providing immediate recognition, evaluation, care, stabilization to patients in response to acute illness and injury. It may be something that is life saving or anything that gives immediate relief to the patient.. In dentistry, emergencies necessitate reassuring the patient in pain and offering relief from their symptoms. It can also be due to uncontrollable dental haemorrhage following extractions, rapidly increasing swelling around the throat or eye, trauma to the dental arches etc.. Although the word ‘emergency’ may not be applicable to prosthodontic treatment in the true medical sense, there are many situations in which a prosthodontic attention is required urgently. This urgent care is needed so that the patient can carry on with his usual activities without impairment in oral function or appearance.. Some of such situations are repair or refixing of crowns or bridges, repair of broken dentures, the need for temporary or immediate dentures, problems with implants etc.. This presentation discusses such prosthodontic urgencies and their management in a precise manner as and when the situation demands in dental practice.
