Emergency Dental Care Orlando, FL
At NuLife Dental, Dr. Hoover sets aside time to treat dental emergencies in our dental office. We don’t want you to be in pain, and we certainly don’t want you to lose a tooth to sudden trauma or because of significant infection.
In our Orlando, FL dental office, you will be seen by our emergency dentist as soon as possible should you have a dental emergency.
What to Do during a Dental Emergency
If you’ve suffered a trauma, we advise you to go to your nearest emergency room where our emergency dentist can be alerted to your situation. If you’ve lost a tooth, hold onto it! Often a tooth can be reattached with prompt follow-up care.
We also advise you to contact our office immediately if you have a dental emergency!
How to Know Whether Your Dental Issue Is an Emergency
Dental emergencies may include:
- Tooth loss
- Tooth breakage
- Lost Crown
Sometimes, a minor dental issue like a small chip in your tooth that does not cause pain can wait a day or two. However, if you’re not certain whether your situation qualifies as a dental emergency, contact our office to speak to a knowledgeable team member.
At NuLife Dental, we do not want you to be in pain!
What to Expect during a Dental Emergency Visit
Dr. Hoover will quickly assess your emergency and begin treatment. Our main goal is to save your tooth (or teeth), treat infection, and relieve your pain.
Depending on the nature of your emergency, treatment may be completed at your emergency visit or during a scheduled follow up.
During your emergency visit, however, we will make sure you’re comfortable and relaxed. At NuLife Dental, we know how traumatic a dental emergency can be, and we want you to feel assured.
Preventing Dental Emergencies
Emergencies happen to all of us—a ball to the face while watching a sporting event, for example. If you’re competing in a sport, by the way, always wear a mouth guard.
However, many dental emergencies are systemic and arise from infections that spread over time.
Steps to prevent dental emergencies of this type include:
- Brushing and flossing at least twice per day to prevent cavities and bacteria buildup
- Seeing your dentist for regular checkups to assess your oral health
- Scheduling at least two dental cleanings per year to prevent decay and bacteria buildup
- Avoiding sugary drinks and snacks that can cause cavities and tooth decay
