When you have important plans, a sudden dental emergency can change everything. Getting emergency dental care at a moment’s notice might not be easy, but it’s extremely important. The pain and misery is bad enough on its own, but neglecting to get treatment for a serious dental problem can have long-term consequences for your dental health.
Fortunately, you don’t have to delay your treatment or wait to see if the problem goes away. Our emergency dentists in Fort Myers treat patients during normal business hours. Call our emergency dental office at any time during operating hours to schedule an urgent appointment. Our emergency dental care goals are to diagnose your dental problem, ease your pain, and treat the condition so that it doesn’t interrupt your plans again.
We accept dental emergencies and try to provide same-day care.
Emergency dental services are comprised of tests and treatments that bring symptom relief for sudden dental problems and help to protect long-term dental health by addressing their underlying processes. Here are a few examples of urgent dental care services that our emergency dental office provides for our patients:
Any dental condition or injury that causes suffering and interferes with your normal routine is worth getting emergency dental care. Here are a few examples.
Broken and fractured teeth should be repaired as soon as possible to avoid infection and further breakage or deterioration.
Emergency dentists are experts at managing knocked-out teeth, but your swift action is critical. Call us for instructions immediately after the incident occurs. In the meantime, these tips on handling the situation may help:
Don’t delay in scheduling treatment for a severe toothache. Your pain could have a serious underlying cause. Be sure to inform us if you have other symptoms like fever, facial pain, or sensations of pressure.
Tooth sensitivity that seems to start abruptly and for no apparent reason could be related to a recent tooth injury or infection. Seek urgent dental care to get a timely diagnosis.
Cavities caused by dental decay become painful when nerves and roots are exposed. Our emergency dentists can assess your decayed tooth and provide options for restoring it.
An abscessed tooth causes intense tooth pain, fever, bad breath, swollen glands, facial swelling, and open, draining sores on your gums. If you think you may have an abscessed tooth, seek care from our emergency dentists without delay. Left untreated, the condition can adversely affect your general health.
Missing or loose fillings make eating a challenge, and they can also put the affected tooth at risk of further damage. Call us as soon as possible to schedule repairs.
A broken crown or lost restoration leaves your tooth unprotected and makes you self-conscious about your smile. Let our emergency dentists solve both problems with a temporary or permanent replacement.
When brackets break and wires go astray, your orthodontic device can become an enemy. We can help by treating your discomfort and adjusting components of your braces to discourage any further injuries.
If you grind your teeth, your tooth enamel will eventually show signs of excess wear. If you’ve noticed changes in how your teeth look or you believe that your grinding habit has recently gotten worse, let us help. We can strengthen the enamel and create a custom dental device to curb grinding behaviors that occur while you sleep.
Sinus pressure is annoying and uncomfortable, and it can be especially frustrating when you have no idea what’s causing it. Certain dental conditions can result in sinus pressure sensations. These include impacted wisdom teeth and dental infections. If your sinuses feel like they want to explode, let our dentists look into possible dental origins of the problem.
Some dental concerns overlap with medical emergencies that could be serious or potentially life-threatening. Our emergency dentists in Fort Myers cannot provide intensive medical care in these situations. If you experience a forceful blow to your head, jaw, or face, or there is severe bleeding or swelling involved in your emergency, go to a hospital emergency room or dial 911 at once.
Emergency dental care fees can be vastly different from patient to patient, so it’s impossible for our emergency dentists to provide an estimate without examining your teeth. When you’re ready to pay your bill, we take major credit cards and accept most dental insurance plans. Our DentRite® discount plan can help you save money on a variety of essential dental services, including emergency care, preventative care, and even major dental procedures. Ask us for membership details.
If you have a painful, severe, or potentially serious dental crisis, don’t wait for our emergency dentists to return to the office. Seek immediate care at a hospital emergency room. When problems arise during office hours, don’t hesitate to call. Our skilled emergency dentists in Fort Myers will be there to preserve your dental health and relieve your pain.
