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, Florida. 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.
We want your visits to be efficient and gentle. Apex Dental is dedicated to being your dentist in Wesley Chapel.

Dr. Amr Hassan, FAGD
Dr. Hassan has been practicing general dentistry since 2010. While in Egypt, he finished his Bachelor’s in Dental Surgery, graduating with honors from MSA University in 2010. In 2016, Dr. Hassan earned his Advanced Education in General Dentistry from the University of Florida.
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. Afterward, patients in the Wesley Chapel, Florida 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. Hassan 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. Hassan.
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.
Yes! We accept a variety of insurance providers and endeavor to accommodate our patients’ requests.
Please call our office to see if we are currently working with your insurance provider. Our pricing structure is designed to ensure that patients are able to receive the high-quality dental care they deserve. If your dental insurance will not cover all of your dental treatments, we will work with you to identify a payment solution.
At Apex Dental, we strive to keep our patients comfortable and free from injury or pain. As such, we are cognizant of the fact that most dental emergencies are unplanned and may not happen during normal business hours. If your tooth has been damaged or you are in pain, call (813) 358-6808 right away so that we can schedule your appointment and treat the issue quickly. 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. While many dentists require you to schedule appointments far in advance, our staff will work with you in each situation to get you treated as soon as possible. You can also help to avoid dental emergencies by having your teeth cleaned twice a year and maintaining a healthy diet year-round.
Find the tooth and rinse it gently in cool water. (Do not scrub or clean it with soap — use only water!) If possible, replace the tooth in the socket immediately and hold it there with clean gauze or a washcloth. If you can’t put the tooth back in the socket, place the tooth in a clean container with cold milk, saliva or water. Get to the Emergency Dentist immediately. (Call the emergency number if it’s after hours.) The faster you act, the better your chances of saving the tooth.
Contact your emergency dental office as soon as possible. The baby tooth should not be replanted because of the potential for subsequent damage to the developing permanent tooth.
Contact your Dentist immediately. Quick action can save the tooth, prevent infection and reduce the need for extensive dental treatment. Rinse the mouth with water and apply cold compresses to reduce swelling if the lip also was injured. If you can find the broken tooth fragment, place it in cold milk or water and bring it with you to the dental office.
You need immediate medical attention. Keep in mind that an emergency medical team might be able to reach you faster than you can get to the hospital. A severe head injury can be life-threatening.
Call our office immediately. Over-the-counter children’s pain medication, dosed according to your child’s weight and age, might ease the symptoms. You may apply a cold compress or ice wrapped in a cloth to the face in the area of the pain, but do not put heat or aspirin on the sore area.
