EMERGENCY DENTISTS IN MIAMI
Emergency situations are not limited to medical conditions alone. There are times when an emergency dental situation occurs. These situations can either be urgent, such as a broken tooth that is causing you severe pain, or non-urgent, such as lost filling or crown. No matter how much the level of pain is, both situations require immediate dental attention.
DS Dental Clinic understands this so they keep their services open 24/7 to answer such situations. When your teeth are in pain, do not hesitate to come to us. Our emergency response team will be available to provide the needed dental treatments at any time of the day.
It’s a big inconvenience to those who are in emergency situations with their teeth. No matter the reason, if they absolutely need to be brought to the dentist, then you will have to hunt down one that does not have the 9-5 day. Luckily for us, there is DS Dental.
CAUSES OF DENTAL EMERGENCIES
- Collisions in sports
- Slipping and falling
- Motor accidents
- Assault injuries
- Unattended tooth decay
If you have a broken jaw or nose, emergency medical attention is required. However, for pain associated with a broken tooth or gum, a dental clinic is a better choice. And that’s why DS Dental Clinic is here.
Dental pain, if not treated, can result in other health issues. For example, if a tooth has been knocked out of your mouth, it could have affected the sensitive nerves and tissues connected to it as well. Thus, it is advisable to seek dental help immediately before it can get any worse.
When faced with a dental emergency, you can take certain first-aid measures to prevent further damage or injury to the damaged teeth or gums before a professional expert attends to it.
Here are some helpful tips to alleviate pain and prevent further damage during a dental emergency:
- Seek care at the closest emergency room
- Rinse your mouth with warm water
- Apply gentle pressure to the gum and not the tooth to stop any bleeding.
- Save any tooth pieces that might have been broken
We advise that if the damaged tooth has a filling or crown, keep the area moist. Much as teeth are very strong, they will crack and shift after an injury or the loss of a bridge or crown, leaving sensitive tissue and nerves exposed.
If the pain is a result of tooth decay or cavities, the dentists might prescribe antibiotics to prevent any infections. Depending on the extent of the decay, a filling, tooth extraction, or root canal may be recommended.
