Emergency Dentistry in Miami, FL
Whatever your dental emergency may be, we encourage you to reach out to us as soon as possible so that we can offer the best advice and treatment options. The following are common general dentistry emergencies that we treat in our Miami, FL dentist office:
If a permanent tooth unexpectedly becomes dislodged, we suggest trying to locate the dislodged tooth if possible. Pick the tooth up by the crown, avoiding touching the exposed roots. Then, you should try to place the tooth back into its original socket within your mouth. If you are unable to do so, place the dislodged tooth into a glass of water or milk. This will help keep the tooth moist and viable while in transit to the dentist’s office. Make your way to the dentist’s office as soon as possible so that we can attempt to reattach the tooth.
Toothaches can occur suddenly, and be especially distracting. It’s important to have a toothache evaluated by a dental professional even if the pain subsides on its own. The underlying cause of your toothache could be dental decay or damage. You may also have an impacted tooth or an abscess. Take over-the-counter pain medication to prevent further discomfort. You can also try holding a cold compress to your jaw or cheek to reduce inflammation surrounding the aching tooth.
Severe chips or cracks to your teeth should be evaluated by a dentist as soon as possible. Chips and cracks may expose the nerves within your teeth, putting you at risk for severe pain or discomfort. Additionally, we are more likely to be able to save the natural tooth if you come to see us as soon as it breaks. Leaving damaged teeth untreated can lead to more complex dental concerns that require costly restorative solutions.
