What Procedures Are Considered Emergency Dental Services?
Procedures that dentists give priority to performing are emergency dental care. These can be procedures to stop pain, prevent an infection from spreading to other teeth and to keep a damaged tooth from experiencing additional structural damage. Examples of procedures that our emergency dentists in Orlando make a priority include:
- Treatment for an abscessed tooth
- Repair of a chipped or fractured tooth
- Emergency tooth removal
- Management of wisdom tooth pain
- Repairing or replacing lost restorations
When Should I Seek Emergency Dental Care Near Me?
Pain is not the only indication of a dental emergency. If you experience any of the following conditions, call our office:
Broken or Fractured Teeth
Call our office to have emergency dentists check your broken or fractured tooth. Even if you do not feel any pain, it is important to have treatment to prevent further damage or infection.
If you suddenly find yourself with a knocked out tooth, put it in a glass of milk or back in the socket and give us a call. Emergency dentists may be able to save the tooth if you act quickly. Never hold a knocked out tooth by the root; it will ruin any chance you have of saving the tooth.
Severe Toothache Pain or Pressure
Decay, infection, or a fractured tooth can all cause tooth pain. Call our office to have emergency dentists diagnose the reason for the pain and treat the problem.
Sudden, severe tooth sensitivity can indicate a tooth fracture or an oral infection. Call our office to schedule an appointment, even if you can’t see any damage.
Dental Decay (Cavities)
Dental decay (cavities) can extreme pain if the decay reaches the tooth’s pulp. One of our dentists will provide emergency dental care, stop the pain, and try to save the tooth.
Don’t postpone calling us for emergency dental care if you have an abscessed tooth. Typically, the condition is very painful, but it can be life-threatening as well if the infection spreads.
Lost or Loose Fillings
If you have a lost or loose filling, our dentists can check to make sure that decay didn’t cause the filling to become loose. We will also replace the filling.
Broken Crowns or Lost Restorations
Lost crowns or restorations can be painful if the exposed tooth is sensitive. Let one of our dentists repair your crown to protect the tooth underneath it.
Orthodontic Pain or Injuries
If you’re experiencing orthodontic pain or have an injury from the wires on your metal braces, our dentists can help.
Tooth Enamel Worn by Teeth Grinding
Untreated teeth grinding will eventually wear the enamel off your teeth, leaving them vulnerable to staining, chipping, and breaking. Emergency dentists can fit you with a night guard to prevent any further damage and suggest ways to protect your teeth.
Sinus pressure can cause a pain in your upper molars; call our office to rule out a dental problem, such as an infection or an impacted wisdom tooth.
What Should I Do If I Have a More Serious Problem?
Some problems, such as bleeding so badly that your mouth is filling up with blood, cannot wait for our emergency dental office to open. If you have any of the following problems, have someone take you to the closest hospital or call 911:
- A severe blow to the face, jaw, or mouth
- A broken jaw
- Severe facial or mouth swelling
- Uncontrolled bleeding
- Trouble breathing
- An inability to swallow
If you have an emergency, but you can wait until our emergency dental office opens, call our office as soon as we open. If you need 24hr dental emergency service, visit your nearest hospital emergency room or call 911.
What Does Urgent Dental Care Cost?
Your urgent dental care cost will depend on the treatment you receive from emergency dentists. We understand that the cost is unforeseen, so we accept most major credit cards and work with many dental insurance plans. Financing plans are also available to spread the payment out over several months; call our office for details.
If you are uninsured, we offer the DentRite® discount plan. With savings of between 20 and 70 percent, you will enjoy low cost dental care almost every time you visit a dentist in the network, since so many different preventative and restorative procedures are discounted when you show your card. DentRite is not insurance, so everyone is accepted and there is no annual savings limit. You can even use your card for typical emergency dental services, such as root canals and extractions. Call us for more information.
Can you help me locate low cost 24hr emergency dental care near me?
If waiting for care could harm you, do not hesitate to call 911 or go to your local hospital’s emergency room for emergency dentists. If you can safely wait to see one of our dentists during office hours, please call us. If you are debating what to do, head to the hospital and err on the side of caution.
