Unexpected injuries happen, which is why our team of dentists provide emergency dental care at our practice in South Florida. A few typical dental injuries are broken or chipped teeth, and dental avulsions (teeth that have been knocked out). Incidents can result from chewing food that is too hard for your teeth to manage, an accident when playing sports, a bad spill, or a blunt-force trauma. You might not feel discomfort, but it is important to get your mouth assessed following an accident to look for any damage. At SEDA Dental, we'll always make your dental crisis a priority by supplying immediate care along with ways to protect against future issues.
It's possible you will need urgent care if a restoration or tooth falls out, you're experiencing dental pain, or you have a cracked tooth. In some cases, you might be uncertain about whether you need prompt treatment (as an example, a loose restoration or tooth, an injury that does not result in bleeding or pain, or a chip in a tooth). Anytime you have a dental trauma that impacts your gums, teeth, or jaw, it is smart to contact our office. Our dental team will be able to help you determine how soon to come in, ways to reduce any pain, and also how to store your tooth or dental restoration. Even small injuries may lead to larger problems if not handled as soon as possible; therefore, it's best to err on the side of caution and contact our office right away.
What To Expect
Each dental crisis is different so we will thoroughly evaluate your situation prior to making a diagnosis during your consultation. Digital x-rays might be needed to look for hidden damage. After our team understands the degree of your problem, we will speak with you about your options and develop your treatment program. You might require one or several appointments to restore your mouth to health.
In accordance with your condition, we can offer you instructions that will help you recover following your procedure at SEDA Dental. We can give you a prescription for pain medication or antibiotics, which should be used as directed. We may also tell you if you should make an appointment for a different treatment or a follow-up examination. After your dental crisis is treated, you might speak with our team about methods to prevent potential accidents, including a custom-made mouth guard that should be worn during contact sports. You should continue to follow a good home oral hygiene routine with flossing and brushing to help keep your gums and teeth healthy and strong. During your yearly dental examination at SEDA Dental, we will continue to monitor your recovery progress.
If you have dental insurance, we'll contact your insurer to determine your coverage and benefits after we have established your treatment program. For those not using insurance, SEDA Dental takes many payment methods, and we can help you get low-interest medical financing to help make your care easier to afford. Do not delay handling a dental crisis due to concerns over price since waiting may lead to larger and more serious issues.
