Clermont Emergency Dentist

Whether you have a toothache, suspect you have broken a tooth, or you’ve pulled out a piece of dental work, Dr. Mundi Buechele of Clermont Family Dentistry is here to help. We offer same-day emergency dental care in Clermont, and we can provide you with the treatment you need to restore your smile and get back to your day-to-day life. If you think you are experiencing a dental emergency, contact us to schedule a same-day appointment now.

What Is a Dental Emergency? Common Dental Emergencies

Our rule of thumb is that a dental emergency is any condition that you cannot treat on your own and is causing you serious pain, discomfort, or bleeding. If your condition meets these criteria, you should schedule a same-day emergency appointment.

Oral injuries are a very common dental emergency. If you slip and fall, take a hard hit in a contact sport, or get into a car accident, you could knock out one of your teeth, or suffer a damaged or cracked tooth that will need to be repaired to prevent further complications, like an infected tooth.

Pulled-out dental work is also a common emergency issue. A loose or pulled-out filling or crown counts as a dental emergency because the vulnerable enamel below your restoration may quickly deteriorate if you do not get emergency care.

Toothaches can also be a dental emergency. A toothache that lasts more than a day or two may indicate that you have an infected tooth, which will need to be treated with a root canal in order to save it and restore your smile. 

What Should I Do During a Dental Emergency?

First, you should contact us for an emergency, same-day appointment. Next, if you are missing your tooth or dental work, recover it. If your tooth has been knocked-out, grab it by the crown (top) and rinse it with warm water. Then, you can gently put it back into its socket or put it in a container of cold milk to keep it moist. Lost dental work can also be put in a plastic baggie. Remember to bring it with you to your emergency appointment!

Next, you can treat your pain, bleeding, or swelling, if you have time. Clean gauze or paper towels can be used to absorb blood, which should mostly stop within an hour. You can take over-the-counter medications like Tylenol (Acetaminophen) or Motrin (Ibuprofen) to help with pain. Applying an ice pack to the cheek can also help with pain and swelling.

Above all, though, prioritize coming to our office as soon as you can. Some issues, like a knocked-out tooth, require treatment within 1-2 hours. If you wait too long, the tooth can die. In addition, getting immediate care is the best way to quickly relieve your pain, get a permanent solution for your dental injury or condition, and get back to your day-to-day life.
