What counts as a dental emergency?
Are you experiencing a dental emergency in Sarasota? Sometimes it's hard to tell. A good rule of thumb is when you're in doubt, contact your team at Sarasota Dental Arts to assess your situation and give you further instruction. Dr. Aygen is always happy to evaluate your needs, and if you do need to be seen, we will make every effort to see you the same day. If you don't need immediate treatment, we can often give you instructions over the phone on handling your situation at home. It's always better to be safe than sorry.
Many dental emergencies are obvious, partially because they occur because of a specific event, or because you're likely to be experiencing a great deal of pain. The most important thing to remember during an emergency is that it's best handled quickly, and by a professional! For those dental concerns that might not be obvious, it's always best to make sure that you are visiting your dentist for regular cleanings and exams to ensure that you stay healthy.
Some common emergency situations to be aware of are:
- A cracked or fractured tooth
- A tooth knocked loose or completely out
- Dental pain that is constant
- Injuries to your soft tissues or gums
- Broken or lost dental restorations
