24/7 Dental Emergency
Same-Day Emergency Dental Care in Boynton Beach, Palm Beach Gardens(PGA), Wellington & Delray Beach FL
What is a dental emergency?
A dental emergency is any situation that poses an immediate threat to your overall health, your teeth, and supporting tissues. As well as a cosmetic emergency that poses an immediate social challenge to your daily life. Dental emergencies are often the result of impact (trauma) to the mouth and face, but they can also be caused by infection, or everyday wear and tear. The first symptom is usually pain, sometimes swelling. But some dental emergencies are caused by silent infections and present without any pain. All dental emergencies should be evaluated promptly by a dentist to ensure the best possible outcome.
How soon should I be seen?
If you are experiencing oral, facial, or dental pain, facial swelling, or simply have a cosmetic emergency requiring an immediate attention, we recommend you contact us as soon as possible.
After Hour Emergencies, We are available 24/7
Here at Care Dental, we do our best to treat emergencies the same day and even try to accommodate “after hour” emergencies with a 24/7 answering service that will directly put you in touch with the doctor. Dental services may be rendered during such hours with a procedure fee represented as D9440 (Office Visit—After Regular Scheduled Hours) added to the determined treatment plan.
Do you need immediate dental help? Don’t wait up, call us now!
A hurting tooth can be debilitating—preventing sleep, proper nutrition, and your ability to work effectively. Our doctors will work with you to diagnose the source of your pain, educate you about your options, and help you get comfortable and healthy.
A big presentation for work. An interview lunch. A family wedding. For many patients, a cracked or broken tooth can be the biggest emergency, even if it’s not yet painful. At Care Dental, we understand that you need to be able to smile, speak in public, to eat in social settings, and we will work with you to quickly find both short and long term solutions to keep you moving, wherever work and life need you.
What to do if a tooth is knocked out:
For permanent teeth that are knocked out, rinse the tooth and put it back in the socket. If you can’t get the tooth back in the socket, place it in a container of milk, water, or saliva to keep it moist. Do not touch the roots (handle the tooth by the crown) and don’t brush the tooth. Contact us IMMEDIATELY for information and emergency treatment – the sooner you get to us, the more likely we can save your tooth!
For baby teeth that are unexpectedly knocked out, leave them out and contact us immediately for instructions.
Other Emergency Dental Situations:
- Substantial Toothache
- Significant Sensitivity
- Swollen or Sore Gums
- Jaw Pain
- Broken, Cracked, or Chipped Teeth
- Broken Fillings
- Lost Crown
Some dental emergencies may not cause pain initially. For example, a cracked tooth may not hurt, but it may lead to nerve damage in the roots. For this reason, all of the listed conditions need immediate attention, whether or not pain is present.
