Do You Really Have a Dental Emergency?

If you are experiencing serious pain, discomfort, or know in your gut that something is wrong with your oral health, do not hesitate to contact your dentist. It is always better to talk about the problem and be seen than allow the problem to get bigger. Let your dentist be the one to decide how severe your condition really is.

Any of the following problems require a call to your dentist, no matter what time of the day or night it is:

  • Knocked out tooth
  • Dislodged tooth
  • Broken tooth
  • Severe tooth pain
  • Swollen or oozing gums
  • Broken dental work
  • Chipped tooth
  • Mouth or jaw trauma

Even if a dental complication doesn’t seem like an emergency, it should be addressed by your Fort Lauderdale dentist sooner rather than later. The longer you wait to have any dental issue tended to, the more you risk the need for more extensive dental work.

Bigger complications can develop, including tooth loss, damage to neighboring teeth, or even hospitalization from infection. Our emergency dentists take every problem seriously at Premier Smile Center. If you have a concern, contact us right away.

Repairs for Dental Emergencies

Sometimes, people don’t want to go to the dentist for an emergency because they fear the treatment that will be needed to fix the problem. What must be understood is that no true dental emergency will go away on its own. You need professional help to solve the problem, and that means contacting and seeing your dentist.

While your dentist cannot predict what the treatment will be for your unique situation until an examination is complete, some of the following procedures are often needed:

  • Tooth extraction: A severely damaged or infected tooth that cannot be saved even requires an extraction. Once the extraction site has healed, a dental restoration like a dental implant or dental bridge can follow to replace the missing tooth.
  • Root canal therapy: Extreme tooth pain often signifies a deep infection within the tooth that must be treated with root canal therapy. This important procedure can save a tooth from extraction and keep your smile intact. The treated tooth is usually capped with a porcelain crown after to protect the tooth and make it look like a natural part of your smile.
  • Restorative dentistry: A damaged or infected tooth can also be repaired with other dental restorations, like a tooth-colored filling, a porcelain crown, an inlay or onlay, porcelain veneers, or dental bonding. Restorative dentistry treatments are intended to repair and beautify a tooth simultaneously.
