Same Day Dental Emergencies in Sarasota, FL
Dental emergencies are an unfortunate fact of life. While good home care and regular visits for examinations and cleanings can significantly reduce your risk of an emergency, chances are good that you will probably still experience a dental injury or infection at some point in your life.
Since dental emergencies have a tendency to be painful and disruptive, it’s important that you have same day access to emergency dental care in Sarasota. Additionally, some dental emergencies require prompt care to save the tooth.
At Sarasota Dental Arts, your comfort and safety are our top priorities. If you are having a dental emergency, we will do everything possible to get you seen the same day so that we can relieve your pain and treat the problem.
Same Day Emergency Treatment in Sarasota
In most cases, we can treat emergencies either the same day you call or within 24 hours. Some emergencies require immediate treatment (for instance, when a tooth is knocked out of place) so we will ask you questions to determine the nature of your emergency and whether you are in pain.
In some cases, we can perform treatment the same day to relieve your pain and stabilize the situation, but further treatment at a later appointment will be required to either save or replace the tooth. Dr. Aygen will lay out your options for you so that you can make informed decisions about your dental care.
Common Dental Emergencies at Sarasota Dental Arts
If you aren’t sure whether the situation you are experiencing is an emergency, that’s okay. Just give us a call and we will ask you some questions. No concern is ever silly, and we never want you to suffer in silence because you aren’t sure!
Some of the most common dental emergencies we treat here at our Sarasota dental office include:
- Infections and abscesses of the teeth and gums
- Recementing crowns and bridges
- Cracked teeth
- Trauma to the soft tissues (lips, gums, tongue) and falls that injure the mouth
- Pain with an unknown origin
- Foreign objects stuck between teeth or in the gums
- Broken appliances, restorations, or dentures
We will provide you with recommendations to help you stay more comfortable until you can be seen. If you have lost a tooth or your tooth has broken, try to find the tooth or the piece that has broken off and keep it in a container of milk, saline, or even your own saliva. We may be able to replace or reattach the tooth!
