Dental emergencies can happen at any time of the day or night, whether or not the dental office is open.
Unfortunately, most emergency rooms are ill-equipped to manage dental emergencies, putting you in dire need of an emergency dentist.
We’re outlined what to do if you need an emergency dentist.
Some dental problems cannot and should not be ignored, making a trip to an emergency dentist immediately necessary. Some symptoms or problems that require emergency dental care include:
- A tooth that has been knocked out or cracked.
- Severe pain.
- Loose or broken tooth.
Ignoring any of these issues may cause irrevocable damage and/or require even more expensive treatment later.
Dison Family Dentistry in Miami, Florida, provides round-the-clock emergency dental care. All you have to do to connect with an emergency dentist is call us at (305) 600-5454. We will be able to get you into the office and address any dental problems.
If you’re waiting for a call back or you are on your way to see us, there are a few things you can do to help make things easier on yourself.
First, remain calm. Remain still to avoid worsening the problem before you see the dentist. Breathe in and out slowly to help regulate your heart rate and ease your mind.
If your tooth is very loose or has been knocked out, you can try to keep it in its socket if possible by holding it in place with gauze. Try to avoid touching an open wound directly in order to avoid infection.
