Dental Emergency FAQs
In the face of a dental emergency in West Palm Beach, it can be difficult to act quickly and do what’s best for your oral health. Below, we’ve answered some of the most common questions that we receive from our patients who are in emergency dilemmas. If you don’t see the information you’re looking for, please don’t hesitate to call us directly!
How do I know when to go to the ER and when to visit an emergency dentist?
Even though you may think that visiting the emergency room is a full-proof plan when addressing a dental emergency, it actually isn’t. While the ER can prescribe you antibiotics and medication to ease your discomfort, there are rarely dentists in these settings who specialize in oral healthcare, limiting the treatments that they’ll be able to provide you with. In many cases, patients who visit the ER just need to turn around and go to an emergency dental office the following day. That’s why we recommend calling your emergency dentist in West Palm Beach first if you’re wondering who can provide you with the care you need.
That being said, we recommend visiting the ER if you’re experiencing any symptoms that affect your ability to breathe or swallow, because these can be life-threatening and require immediate medical attention.
How can I bring down facial swelling?
If your face is swollen due to trauma, you can place a cold compress on it for 10 minutes on, 10 minutes off, for up to an hour.
Will my toothache go away on its own?
As much as you’d want your toothache to just disappear on its own, this isn’t likely to happen without treatment. In cases where a tooth is severely infected, the pain may go away, but that’s due to the fact that the nerves within the tooth have actually died, not because it has healed. In this case, you may need to have a tooth extraction. Our team recommends visiting our office as soon as you notice any oral discomfort to avoid worsening oral health problems like this.
My chipped tooth doesn’t hurt. Do I still need to visit an emergency dentist?
Even though your chipped tooth may not hurt, it’s important to have it examined and, if necessary, repaired to prevent it from becoming infected. When the enamel is no longer covering the outer layer of a tooth to protect the more vulnerable inner layers, you’ll be at a higher risk of developing an infection because harmful oral bacteria will have direct access to the inner portion of your pearly white.
