Accidents happen, which is exactly why our seasoned dental team offers emergency dental care at our office in Boynton Beach, FL. Some common oral injuries are cracked, broken, and knocked-out teeth. Incidents may happen when 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 Boynton Beach, we will constantly make your dental emergency a priority by giving effective treatment and methods to prevent future problems.
It's possible you might need emergency care if a tooth or restoration comes out, you are in pain, or your tooth is cracked. In some cases, 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). When you experience an injury to your mouth, including your teeth, gums, or jawbone, it's best to get in touch with our office as soon as possible. Our team can help you decide how quickly to come in, provide methods to manage any pain, and give instructions on how to preserve your tooth or restoration. Even small injuries can cause greater complications if not treated right away so it is good to contact our office immediately.
What To Expect
Every dental emergency is unique so we will carefully assess your problem during your appointment before any treatment is performed to ensure that you get the appropriate care you deserve. Digital images may be necessary to check for unseen damage. Once our team understands the extent of your condition, we will talk to you about options and create your treatment plan. You may need one or multiple procedures to restore your oral health.
Based on your dental issue, we will give you instructions to help you heal after your treatment at SEDA Dental of Boynton Beach. We may write you a prescription for antibiotics or pain medication that should 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 handled, you may talk to us about ways to prevent future injuries, including a custom mouth guard to be worn while playing sports. You must continue to adhere to a daily home oral care regimen with brushing and flossing to keep your teeth and gums healthy. During your annual dental exam at SEDA Dental of Boynton Beach, we will continue to keep an eye on your healing progress.
For patients with dental insurance, we will contact your provider to find out your benefits once we have created your treatment plan. For those without dental insurance, SEDA Dental of Boynton Beach accepts multiple payment methods, and we can help you find medical financing to make your treatment more affordable. Don't delay treating a dental emergency because of concerns over cost because waiting could lead to bigger and more expensive problems.
