Emergency Dental Care
Dental emergencies. Never expected, they can happen to anyone at any time, daytime or nighttime, weekends or weekdays. Even with the most diligent dental care, emergencies can happen. It’s important to seek medical attention as soon as possible, immediate care can mean the difference between saving and losing a tooth.
When you are facing a dental emergency such as an injury, broken tooth, infection, or toothache, contact Carrollwood Village Dental and Dr. Richard Mancuso for an appointment. We can help you determine whether you need to be seen immediately, or if your issue can wait until normal business hours. Even if you are not a patient of record, we offer same day appointments.
Give us a call when you find yourself facing any dental emergency!
Reasons You Might Need an Emergency Dentist
A toothache is one of the most common dental emergencies. When toothache pain lingers—or gets progressively worse—you need to contact a dentist right away. Dental pain is never normal!
Frequently, toothaches happen because there is an infection in the nerve of the tooth. Other reasons for toothaches can include gum infections or abscesses. Toothaches can also occur after patients have lost a filling, or have a filling that has become cracked or loose.
If you have been hit or otherwise injured in the mouth, this can also warrant an emergency trip to the dentist. Particularly if you have a broken tooth or if your tooth has fallen out completely, immediate care is needed.
If your tooth has been knocked from its socket, you need immediate attention if there is a chance for the tooth to be saved. We can also provide you with specific instructions when you call our office.
How to Prevent Dental Emergencies From Happening in the Future
It might be surprising for most people to learn that one of the main causes of dental emergencies is skipping out on regular preventive care. People who avoid going to the dentist out of fear often are the same patients who find themselves dealing with a dental emergency. Regular trips to your dentist for preventative cleanings and checkups are the number one way to keep dental emergencies from happening to you.
Dr. Mancuso understands that some patients are anxious about the dentist, and neither he nor his staff will be judgmental if you are coming the dentist for the first time in a long time. With Dr. Mancuso’s gentle touch, experienced staff, and comfortable office, you can feel relaxed at your dental appointment.
If you are facing a dental emergency, give Carrollwood Village Dental a call. Dr. Mancuso will see you on that very same day. Give us a call!
Great experience from beginning to end, doctor and staff work well together. Friendly and always on time!
