Emergency Dentist Services for You
We can help when it is time to get a doctor. When you have a dental emergency, your Aspen Dentistry will help find the solution that brings relief — everything at a compassionate, caring place. Teethache root canals and tooth extractions can sound like extreme solutions, but they are vital. Broken or damaged teeth: Veneers, crowns, fillings and fillets are effective at protecting cracked teeth and restoring your beautiful smile. Implants can fill up gaps that may be missed if your teeth have fallen off suddenly.
What Is A Dental Emergency?
The most obvious dental emergencies involve oral trauma. Issues like cracked, chipped, loose, knocked-out (avulsed), missing teeth, or impacted teeth (teeth driven back into the socket), dental abscess, broken tooth, and severe pain demand immediate attention. However, some other dental emergencies many not be as obvious. If you damage a piece of dental work like a crown or cavity filling, or if you have a persistent toothache or advanced gum disease, these issues also count as dental emergencies.
As a general rule, we define a dental emergency as any oral condition that is causing you pain that you cannot treat on your own. If your condition fits these criteria, contact Seaglass Dental Care for a dental appointment right away.
What will the ER do for a tooth infection?
An ER visit is often the first step in diagnosing a tooth infection. The ER will take x-rays, give you pain relief, and start antibiotic treatment. The ER will also provide you with instructions for how to manage your symptoms at home.
If a bacteriological infection is suspected, they can give antibiotic drugs and arrange for hospitalization when needed. These medications are useful for treating broken, damaged teeth and can reduce sensitivity.
What Should I Do In A Dental Emergency?
Make a same-day appointment at Seaglass Dental Care, or walk into our office at 384 Northlake Blvd, North Palm Beach, FL. Next, recover your tooth or damaged dental work (if applicable.) You can place a missing tooth back in its socket after washing it gently with water, or put it in a small bag of milk.
Treat bleeding by using clean cotton balls or sterile gauze to absorb blood.
You can also take an over-the-counter medicine like naproxen (Aleve) or acetaminophen (Tylenol) to help with pain and swelling. Ice packs applied externally can also help with pain, swelling and inflammation.
Keep in mind that time is of the essence and that some dental emergencies, like a knocked-out tooth, must be treated within 1-2 hours to save the tooth.
