Treating Emergency Dental Problems in Tampa, FL
Some of the most common emergency problems we treat include:
Lost Permanent Tooth
Dr. Benedict will recommend a dental implant, dental bridge, or denture, depending on how many teeth are missing. Implants are the gold standard for replacing single missing teeth and supporting bridges or dentures.
Broken or Lost Restorations
Contact our office if you have broken or lost a filling, crown, bridge, or denture. We can help fit you for a new restoration. Do not try to place the restoration back in your mouth, as you can injure your teeth and gums. However, you can bring your restoration to our office if you can find it. We can design a new restoration if we cannot reattach it comfortably.
If you have sharp, sudden tooth pain, contact our Tampa dental office. Apply a cold compress if you are experiencing swelling. Tooth decay or a dental abscess are some of the most common causes of severe tooth pain. A dental injury can also cause toothaches. Let us know where you experience the tooth pain and if you have any other symptoms so we can pinpoint the cause of your pain and recommend treatment.
After tooth extraction, it’s important to care for the extraction site for proper healing. If you feel excessive pain or develop dry socket following treatment, please contact our office. Dry socket occurs when a blood clot does not develop or is dislodged from the extraction site. This blood clot helps protect the nerves and bone in the tooth socket.
An exposed tooth socket directly after treatment can cause pain and discomfort. We will recommend pain medication and a soft diet as the site heals.
