The term "emergency" describes the onset of a painful, acute phenomenon requiring a precise diagnosis so it can be treated quickly and correctly. This last point is particularly important when dealing with a periodontal emergency, in which gum pain is often associated with extensive tissue impairment with a high risk of deterioration. Among periodontal diseases, periodontal abscesses and necrotic periodontal diseases are among the most frequent reasons for emergency consultations. Nevertheless, even if their prevalence is minimal, certain gum diseases which are not induced by plaque, are also characterised by intense pain, which, beyond the periodontal repercussions, may also compromise the patient's health considerably.
