How Do I Locate Emergency Dentists in My Community?

What Is a Dental Emergency?
Any severe pain or trauma to the mouth such as fractured teeth, and any conditions such as an abscessed tooth, usually require emergency dental care to avoid permanent damage. We treat problems, such as cracked teeth, lost fillings and other issues that can be addressed during regular office hours. After hour emergencies, including severe bleeding and severe trauma to the teeth and jaw need immediate care at a hospital emergency room.
Our dentists typically treat emergencies such as:
- Excruciating pain from a cavity
- Emergency tooth extractions
- Chipped or fractured teeth
- Wisdom teeth discomfort
- Missing or lost fillings or crowns
- Orthodontic device issues
- Painful abscesses
When Should I Look for an Emergency Dental Office Near Me?
I still am unsure if I need urgent dental care
Always call 911 if you think that you need immediate care for your dental problem rather than local emergency dentists in Florida. It is better to be safe than sorry.
Our dentists are able to treat following conditions, which can be extremely painful and require immediate attention:
Broken or Fractured Teeth
With broken or fractured teeth, a jagged edge may cut the inside of your mouth if you do not cover the sharp point with dental wax. Contact the emergency dental office closest to you where they will assess the damage and suggest a procedure that will keep the weakened tooth from breaking or cracking any more.
Our dentists can save your knocked out teeth if you act quickly. Hold the tooth by the root, rinse it, and then gently put the tooth in the socket. Contact our office for additional instructions and emergency dental care during normal office hours.
Severe Toothache Pain or Pressure
Emergency dentists excel at finding the reason for a severe toothache or pressure. Call our office for an appointment to receive a diagnosis and to alleviate your pain with the right treatment for your condition.
A broken tooth or an infection can cause sudden, acute tooth sensitivity. Intense sensitivity requires urgent dental care; however, minor sensitivity can be addressed at your next preventative care appointment.
Dental Decay (Cavities)
Dental decay or cavities may cause severe pain when the decay reaches the root of the tooth. Contact local emergency dentists in Florida to get relief from the pain and to undergo treatment to repair the tooth.
With an abscessed tooth, you may experience intense pain, fever, facial or gum swelling, and open sores on your gums. An abscessed tooth may lead to serious problems if you delay getting treatment from emergency dentists capable of addressing the problem.
Lost or Loose Fillings
If you have lost or loose fillings, contact an emergency dental office to see if the dentist can reinforce your tooth with another filling, which will stop any pain and prevent further decay.
Broken Crowns or Lost Restorations
Emergency dental services for broken crowns or restorations may include either temporary or permanent solutions that enhance your beautiful smile and keep your tooth from being damaged.
Orthodontic Pain or Injuries
Our dentists can easily treat orthodontic pain or injuries by stabilizing metal braces so your pain is alleviated and the braces will not cause further injuries.
Teeth Worn by Grinding
Emergency dentists are skilled in repairing tooth enamel worn by teeth grinding by reinforcing your tooth enamel. When you visit our office, our dentists will explain your options for preventing further grinding and clenching while you are sleeping.
Sinus pressure is a very common complaint for people with allergies; however, the combination of sinus pain and a toothache could indicate a problem. Call our office for an appointment to rule out an infection or impacted wisdom teeth.
Am I Having a Dental Emergency?
I’m not sure if I have an emergency, how do I tell?
There are situations where you cannot wait to receive help.
If you have any of the following issues, seek immediate assistance from emergency services or the nearest ER.
- Severe and sudden swelling of your face or gums
- Serious bleeding
- Critical injuries to your face, head, teeth or jaw
What Do Emergency Dental Services Cost?
The cost will depend on which treatment emergency dentists recommend for your case. Emergency dental care without insurance coverage presents a dilemma, but we do offer financing options and accept most credit cards as well. Our office tries to keep our services affordable without compromising on quality.
If you do not have insurance, the DentRite® discount dental plan offers significant savings on a wide range of dental procedures. DentRite® is not insurance; you pay a flat fee for coverage each year and you can use your discount as much as you like. Contact us for more information about this money saving discount dental plan.
If I need emergency dental care after hours, how do I locate reasonably priced emergency dental care near me?

If your situation is severe and you need immediate care, please call 911 or seek care at the closest emergency room. If you are unsure of the severity of your condition, it is better to err on the side of caution and find emergency treatment immediately.
