Save your emergency dentist in Fort Lauderdale’s phone number for helpful advice during a dental emergency.

Dental emergencies refer to a wide range of situations with at least one thing in common: They require immediate treatment. How quickly you act in an emergency can have serious consequences, including whether you can save teeth and avoid long-term jaw and other damage.

Emergency and Urgent Care

A dental emergency is when immediate treatment is required to alleviate severe bleeding or infection or address significant swelling or bone trauma.

Common emergencies include:

  •  Abscessed or infected teeth
  • Broken, dislodged teeth
  • Cracked or broken crowns, fillings, bridges
  • Severe tooth pain
  • Objects lodged between teeth

Many other situations often qualify as emergencies because they require urgent dental care, from malfunctioning dentures to broken orthodontic wires. 

Time is of the essence, regardless of the type of emergency. It is important to stop or slow any bleeding by using continuous pressure for up to 10 minutes. If the blood doesn’t slow during that time – or if you believe that you have a broken jaw – you should go straight to an emergency room.

For situations that do not require an immediate ER trip, over-the-counter medication can be used to reduce any pain, along with ice to reduce swelling. You should then contact an emergency dentist
