Emergency Dentists over the Emergency Room
The majority of Emergency Rooms across the United States do not have the equipment or expertise to handle the complexities of dental health. This is, of course, not to disparage the work done in our emergency rooms.
When you contact Florida Dental Centers, we work with you to figure out how soon we are able to get you in for emergency dental services. With our flexible staff, we are able to bring you the care you need when you need it. The sorts of services we provide through emergency services are:
- Severe toothaches such as consistent throbbing pain
- Jaw damage and/or dislocation
- Knocked out tooth
- Excessive bleeding from the gums
- A severe infection
- Chipped or otherwise damaged teeth
Keeping an eye out for these emergencies is key to minimizing the damage across the mouth. We are also able to assist in repairs to damaged dentures and loose crowns or fillings. The biggest symptoms to watch out for are severe pain, bleeding, pus, and loose teeth in order to get the treatment you need as quickly as possible.
