Dental Emergency in Sarasota FL, Sarasota Dental Arts

Dental emergencies come in all shapes and sizes, but certain urgent conditions require immediate attention. Fortunately, Dr. Aygen and the team at Sarasota Dental Arts are here to help! We offer same-day emergency dentistry, so we can relieve your pain, provide stabilizing treatment, and plan for the long term.

If you are experiencing pain or another emergency, don’t hesitate to call your same-day emergency dentist in Sarasota, Dr. Kaya Aygen.

#1) Tooth Decay or Cavities

The problem with a cavity is that you may not know you have it until you have a toothache. By then, the decay is touching the part of your tooth that carries its nerves, and the result is tooth pain. To prevent it from penetrating the inner part of your tooth and causing an infection or abscess, we must remove the decay and place a dental filling.

Even if you have a mild toothache, don’t postpone treatment thinking that it will go away on its own, because it won’t. You may be able to tough it out for a day or two, but while you do, the decay is spreading further into the tooth. Wait too long, and you’ll have an excruciating toothache that may require a root canal to treat.

#2) Infections and Abscesses

Swollen or inflamed gums are not healthy and may indicate that you have a tooth infection that requires immediate treatment to resolve. Infections are not a dental problem you should ever ignore. We must provide same-day emergency dentistry at our Sarasota dental office to treat the infected tooth. Without treatment, the infection can enter your bloodstream and become a severe and even life-threatening systemic problem.

#3) Dental Trauma

Dental trauma involves any injury to your teeth, gums, and or the bone that holds your teeth in place. You may be injured in a fall, an automobile accident, or playing sports.

At Sarasota Dental Arts, we offer several options for treating a cracked or broken tooth, including fillings and tooth crowns, depending on the damage. If the tooth has been knocked loose or knocked out, we may be able to re-implant it, but we must see you right away to evaluate the extent of the damage to the tooth and determine the most appropriate treatment.
