Dental Emergencies

Dental emergencies strike without warning, even catching us off guard during our daily activities and disrupting our routines. From sudden pain to unexpected injuries, these incidents can occur when we least expect them. While we cannot always prevent them, at Coral Gables Dentistry, we're prepared to deliver swift and dependable care whenever such situations arise.

What Are Dental Emergencies?

Dental emergencies encompass a range of sudden and severe dental issues that require immediate attention to alleviate pain, prevent further damage, and preserve oral health. These emergencies can arise from various causes, including accidents, injuries, infections, or sudden onset of severe pain.

What Are the Most Common Dental Emergencies?

  • Toothache: Persistent or severe tooth pain can indicate an underlying dental issue, such as tooth decay, infection, or trauma.
  • Knocked-Out Tooth: When a tooth is completely dislodged from its socket due to trauma or injury, immediate action is necessary to attempt to save the tooth.
  • Chipped or Broken Tooth: Fractured or damaged teeth can result from accidents, sports injuries, or biting down on hard objects, causing pain and compromising oral function.
  • Lost Dental Filling or Crown: The sudden loss of a dental crown or filling can expose the underlying tooth structure, leading to sensitivity, discomfort, and increased risk of further damage.
  • Dental Abscess: An abscess is a painful infection that forms in the tooth root or surrounding gum tissue, causing swelling, pus accumulation, and severe discomfort.
  • Soft Tissue Injuries: Injuries to the gums, lips, cheeks, or tongue, such as cuts, tears, or lacerations, can result from trauma or accidents and may require immediate attention to control bleeding and prevent infection.

What Happens if I Avoid Emergency Care?

Delaying or avoiding emergency dental care can lead to worsening symptoms, increased pain, and potential complications. Ignoring dental emergencies may result in permanent tooth damage, infection, or other oral health issues that could have been prevented with timely treatment.
