Dental Emergencies

Emergency Dentist Wesley Chapel, FL

Emergency Dentist

There are many reasons that patients throughout Florida need an emergency dentist. We have found that a dental emergency can strike at any time. Dr. Fallah and our staff at Apex Dental will try to accommodate any last minute appointment requests so that you, our patient, doesn’t have to live with oral pain. If you have a toothache or a major dental emergency, call (813) 358-6808 right away. We offer extended hours as needed and will do our best to get you treated immediately.

Reasons for Needing an Emergency Dental Visit

The American Dental Association reported that the number-one cause of adult tooth damage every year is playing sports. This spans all types of athletics and creates the need for emergency appointments throughout Wesley Chapel, FL. This means that even a backyard game of basketball can lead to a tooth being damaged or knocked out. The same holds true for kids playing sports throughout the 33544 area. There are ways to protect yourself like wearing a mouth guard, but when an emergency strikes, call (813) 358-6808.

Car accidents are another leading cause of tooth injury. While the enamel on your teeth is strong, it may not be strong enough to prevent your tooth from breaking when colliding with the steering wheel. With millions of accidents a year, teeth are a common victim. We recommend that patients of Apex Dental get examined at a local emergency room after being in a car accident, just to make sure that they haven’t sustained any physical injuries. Afterwards, patients in the Wesley Chapel, FL area should call for a dentist appointment. The emergency room does not treat tooth damage, so you will need to see both types of medical providers.

Severe and sudden toothaches are another reason people in Florida end up needing an emergency dentist. Dr. Fallah is an expert at examining teeth and determining what is causing the pain. It may be a little cavity that grew into a big one and now requires a root canal. Another possibility is gum disease which can cause the gums to recede, leaving the tooth and roots exposed. Both can lead to intense pain and require emergency treatment. We don’t want patients of Apex Dental to experience oral pain and will do our best to treat you right away so that you can remain comfortable.

If a tooth infection is left untreated for a long period of time, it can lead to a dental abscess. This is extremely painful. An abscess is a major tooth infection that can settle into your jawbone and the floor of your mouth. If it does, oral surgery may be necessary in order to remove the infection. We can let you know if we see an abscess during your dental exam with Dr. Fallah.

How can I relieve dental pain while waiting for an emergency dental appointment?

We help people throughout 33544 and surrounding areas to stay comfortable and live a life that is pain-free. If you come into our Apex Dental offices in pain, we will identify what is causing the issue and the treatment options available for dealing with it. Often, we will also prescribe medication to help with the pain. This can prevent you from feeling discomfort while your tooth is being treated and at home. You may also want to apply a cold compress or ice pack to the area in order to reduce or prevent swelling.

Treatment Options

When a tooth has fallen out…

If your tooth has been knocked out, try to find it. Once located, rinse the tooth under warm water without scrubbing it. Next, place it in a cup of milk and bring it with you to your dental appointment. We will try to save the tooth, if possible. If not, Dr. Fallah will discuss options for replacing the tooth. This may include dentures, a dental bridge or dental implants.

When a tooth is broken…

It is common for people to damage a tooth while playing sports or getting into a car accident. It is likely that the tooth will become cracked or chipped. As long as the tooth structure remains in place, it can typically be corrected using cosmetic dentistry. There are multiple ways that we can restore teeth for our patients throughout Florida. Some of which include dental veneers and dental crowns. Both are excellent options and can restore your tooth to full functionality while keeping it natural looking. As an emergency dental facility, we can provide you with information on what your options are and the best way to restore your tooth while achieving the goals that you have for your smile. To schedule an appointment, call (813) 358-6808.

When a tooth is infected…

As an emergency dentist, we will assess the situation and inform you of what is infected and the best way to treat it quickly. Our job is to keep you comfortable, healthy and pain-free. Patients throughout Wesley Chapel, FL trust us to remove infections and keep their teeth and gums in excellent oral health. Whether fixing a general cavity or treating a dental abscess, we make it possible for a tooth to be free from infection and pain. Dr. Fallah is an expert at resolving the issue in a way that keeps patients comfortable during any necessary procedures.

How can an emergency dentist help me?

Our friendly staff will do our best to accommodate your schedule and ensure that you can get back to a life that is free from oral pain.

"Dr. Fallah and his staff genuinely care about their patients, which is so rare. I've had several appointments over the past few years at Apex Dental and every experience was helpful, informative, and as pleasant as possible. I'm very thankful to have found a dentist like Dr. Fallah, who is not interested in up-selling procedures (like many dentists I've seen in the past, unfortunately). I will keep recommending Apex to everyone who asks."
