Accidents happen, which is why our skilled dental team offers emergency dental care at our office in Pinecrest, FL to patients of all ages. Some common oral injuries are cracked, broken, and knocked-out teeth. Incidents can result from biting or chewing food that's too tough for your teeth to handle, a mishap while playing sports, a bad fall, or a blunt-force injury. You may or may not feel pain, but it's important to have your mouth checked after an injury to look for hidden damage. At SEDA Dental of Pinecrest, we will always make your dental emergency a priority by giving immediate treatment and ways to prevent future problems.
In case of an accident, you will need emergency care if a tooth or restoration comes out, you are in pain, or your tooth is cracked. In some circumstances, you may be unsure how quickly you need treatment (for example, a loose tooth or restoration, a trauma that doesn't cause pain or bleeding, or a chipped tooth). Anytime you experience an injury to your mouth, including your teeth, gums, or jawbone, it's best to contact our office. Our dental team can help you decide how soon to come in, ways to manage any pain, and how to preserve your tooth or restoration. Even seemingly minor injuries can lead to bigger problems if not treated right away so it is best to err on the side of caution and contact our office immediately.
What To Expect
Every dental emergency is unique so our dental team will carefully assess your situation before determining a diagnosis or treatment plan. Digital x-rays may be needed to check for hidden conditions. Once we understand the extent of your condition, we will talk to you about options and create your treatment plan. You may need one or several appointments to restore your mouth to optimal health.
Based on your condition, we will give you instructions to help you heal after your treatment at SEDA Dental of Pinecrest. We may write you a prescription for antibiotics or pain medication that should be taken as directed. We will also tell you if you need to schedule an appointment for another procedure or a follow-up exam. Once your dental emergency is treated, we will discuss ways to prevent future injuries, including a custom mouth guard to be worn while playing sports. You should continue to follow a good home oral care regimen with brushing and flossing to keep your teeth and gums strong and healthy. During your annual dental exam at SEDA Dental of Pinecrest, our dental team will continue to monitor your healing progress.
If you have dental insurance, we will contact your provider to determine your coverage and benefits once we have created your treatment plan. For those without dental insurance, SEDA Dental of Pinecrest accepts many payment methods, and we can help you find low-interest medical financing to make your treatment more affordable. Don't delay treating a dental emergency because of concerns over cost because waiting may lead to bigger and more expensive problems.
