Try as we might, we can never plan for every emergency. For this reason, it’s good to know that you have a local dentist who can assist you. Smile Design Dentistry welcomes new patients to our many locations throughout Florida, even if your first visit is for urgent care or treatment of a dental emergency. We offer Saturday office hours at selected locations to make emergency care more accessible. While dental emergencies are rare, they can occur and be traumatic for the entire family. We see patients of all ages, including young children. When you or your child needs emergency or urgent care, we will do everything we can to make sure you are examined and treated as soon as possible.
Common dental emergencies include:
- An acute toothache
- A tooth that has become broken or cracked, especially a front tooth, as this can be very painful
- A broken jaw
- A permanent tooth that has been knocked out or become dislodged or loosened
- A visible abscess in gum tissue
- An object caught between teeth
If you experience a dental emergency, be sure to call our practice as soon as possible. We’ll tell you where and when you can be seen and treated soonest. We’ll provide instructions to help you between the time you call and the time one of our dentists sees you.
Smile Design Dentistry takes the utmost pride in what we do. We strive to not only provide top-notch dental care, but to also form lasting bonds of trust with our patients and their families. We compassionately care about you.
