Although life has come to a halt in many ways during the coronavirus pandemic, accidents and emergencies can and do happen. As always, it remains vitally important that anyone experiencing a dental emergency act swiftly to get the appropriate treatment.
Florida emergency dentist Dr. Natalia Benda-Celenski and her team at Pearl White Dentistry have been helping people throughout South Florida address a wide range of emergencies for more than a decade. Our offices are currently open for emergencies and some other services for new and existing patients.
At Pearl White, we also help people restore and improve their smiles after emergency situations. We take the time to understand each individual patient’s needs and to craft treatment options designed to meet their unique situations.
Dental Emergencies During the Pandemic
It is important to understand during a dental emergency that time is of the essence. Remaining calm and taking basic steps to address the emergency may be the difference in saving your teeth.
Some of the most common emergencies we see at Pearl White Dentistry include:
- Broken or dislodged teeth
- Cracked or broken crowns, fillings, bridges, and other dental work
- Severe toothaches
- Abscessed teeth
- Objects lodged between teeth
The proper response depends on the nature of the emergency. You should go directly to an emergency room if you are not able to slow the flow of any blood coming from your mouth within 10 minutes of applying constant pressure. You should also head immediately to the ER if you believe that you have a broken jaw.
In other situations that do not require an ER visit, it is important to contact an emergency dentist as soon as possible. You should also take over-the-counter medication to address pain and use ice to keep swelling down.
Restorative Services After an Emergency
After an emergency, we offer a number of treatment services to correct broken, cracked and stained teeth as well as a wide range of other dental conditions. Some of those restorative treatments include:
- Crowns and bridges: These treatments are designed to rebuild teeth and fill gaps.
- Root canals: This procedure helps save injured or decaying teeth by eliminating infections.
- Porcelain veneers: This treatment uses thin sheets of porcelain to address gaps, cracks and stains.
- Teeth whitening: Our at-home treatment package helps stained or faded teeth regain their shine.
At Pearl White, Dr. Natalia and her staff have a strong track record of successful results and brightened smiles.
