Unforeseen accidents happen, which is the reason why our dental team offers emergency oral care at our office in North Miami Beach, FL. Some common dental injuries are cracked, broken, and knocked-out teeth. Incidents could be caused by biting or chewing food that's too tough for your teeth to handle, a mishap while playing sports, a bad fall, or a blunt-force injury. You may or may not feel pain, but it's important to have your mouth checked after an injury to look for hidden damage. At SEDA Dental of North Miami Beach, we will consistently make your dental emergency a priority by providing fast treatment and steps to prevent future problems.
At some point, you may need emergency care if a tooth or restoration comes out, you are in pain, or your tooth is cracked. In some situations, you may be unsure how quickly you need treatment (for example, a loose tooth or restoration, a trauma that doesn't cause pain or bleeding, or a chipped tooth). Whenever you experience an injury to your mouth, including your teeth, gums, or jawbone, it's best to speak to our office right away. Our dental team can help you decide when to come in, strategies to manage any pain, and how to preserve your tooth or restoration. Even smaller injuries can result in bigger issues if not treated right away so it is better to contact our office immediately.
What To Expect
Every dental emergency is unique so we will carefully assess your mouth before a diagnosis or treatment plan is made. X-rays may be required to check for additional issues. Once our dental team understands the extent of your condition, we will talk to you about options and create your treatment plan. You may need one or a number of visits to restore your mouth.
Based on your problem, we will give you instructions to help you heal after your treatment at SEDA Dental of North Miami Beach. We may write you a prescription for antibiotics or pain medication that needs to be taken as directed. We will also tell you if you need to schedule an appointment for another procedure or a follow-up exam. Once your dental emergency is treated, you may talk to our dental team about ways to prevent future injuries, including a custom mouth guard to be worn while playing sports. You need to continue to stick to a regular home oral care regimen with brushing and flossing to keep your teeth and gums strong and healthy. During your annual dental exam at SEDA Dental of North Miami Beach, we will continue to observe your healing progress.
If you are using dental insurance, we will contact your provider to review your coverage once we have created your treatment plan. For those without dental insurance, SEDA Dental of North Miami Beach accepts several payment methods, and we can help you find low-interest financing to make your treatment more affordable. Don't delay treating a dental emergency because of concerns over cost because waiting might lead to bigger and more expensive problems.
