Emergency Dentist in Boca Raton, FL
What is an Emergency Dentist?
What Dental Situations Require a Trip to the Emergency Dentist?
#1. Severe Toothache
A severe toothache—especially if accompanied by swelling, fever, or other symptoms—can signify an underlying dental issue such as abscesses and tooth infections that require immediate attention. If you are experiencing sharp, throbbing dental pain, visit our emergency dentist as soon as possible so we can diagnose the cause of your toothache and provide an emergency treatment such as root canal therapy or tooth extraction.
#2. Badly Cracked Teeth
A minor crack in a tooth is usually not a major cause of concern and can often be treated anytime. However, if the crack is severe, visit our emergency dentist as soon as possible to repair it with a dental crown or other dental restoration options. Severely cracked teeth can cause severe pain, sensitivity, and even sepsis (infection in the bone) if left untreated.
#3. Knocked Out Tooth
If you have had a tooth knocked out, it is essential to act quickly and visit an emergency dentist as soon as possible. The sooner you get to the dentist, the better your chances are of saving the tooth.
While waiting for your dental appointment, make sure to keep the tooth moist by placing it in a cup of milk or putting it back in its socket. Make sure not to touch the tooth’s root and avoid scrubbing it.
#4. Severe Soft Tissue Injury
Tips for Preventing Future Dental Emergencies
Proper oral hygiene and regular dental checkups can prevent most dental emergencies. Make sure to brush your teeth twice daily, floss daily, and visit our dentist for regular cleanings and checkups.
In addition, it is important to wear a mouth guard when playing contact sports or participating in activities that could lead to dental trauma. Wearing a mouth guard can help protect your teeth from being knocked out or damaged.
You should also avoid eating sticky or crunchy foods that can cause chips and cracks in your teeth.
