Our team will provide you with a customized treatment plan before your appointment.
While all same day dental emergencies are tailored to your visit, it is important to know what kinds of treatments qualify as emergencies and how to handle them if they occur.
What Kinds Of Treatments Qualify As Same Day Dental Emergencies?
Severely Bitten Lips Or Tongue
If you have accidentally bitten your tongue or lip and are experiencing excessive bleeding that won’t stop, even after applying pressure with gauze or a tissue, there may be a chance you will need stitches. We can help. Call us at (352) 848-1050 to schedule an emergency appointment.
Broken Jaw Bone
If you have suffered an injury to your jaw causing a fracture or broken bone, call 911. You will need to go to a hospital immediately where an oral surgeon can work to reset and secure the jaw with a splint.
Broken or Chipped Teeth
Same day dental emergencies may be necessary if you have broken or chipped a tooth. If the issue is cosmetic or if you happen to be in a great deal of pain, don’t panic. If possible, bring the broken piece of tooth in a jar of water to your appointment. We will be able to repair your teeth and get you back to normal in no time.
If you are experiencing severe pain from a toothache, contact our office immediately at (352) 848-1050. The pain could be the result of a bigger issue such as undetected periodontal disease. If the pain intensifies when applying heat or cold, or if you can’t chew, go ahead and avoid those activities until you can see the dentist. Over the counter pain relievers are suggested in the meantime.
Knocked Out Teeth
If your tooth has been knocked out due to an injury, call our office immediately at (352) 848-1050 to set up an emergency appointment. If possible rinse the tooth off of any dirt. Try to place the tooth back in its socket. If it won’t hold, place the tooth in a jar of saline or regular water and bring it with you to your appointment.
Will My Dental Insurance Cover Same Day Dental Emergencies?
Dental insurance is typically used in the case of preventative dental care, such as check ups, cleanings and x-rays. For in-network dentists, insurance companies can often negotiate lower service fees as well.
In many cases, dental insurance companies require a waiting period of 6 to 12 months before they will cover larger proceedures such root canals, crowns and similar services. However, when you are in severe pain, that is a long time to wait. Also, if you had known dental problems before getting your policy, they likely will not cover treatments for those issues either.
If your dental insurance won’t cover the cost of your emergency treatment, we also offer dental financing plans through Care Credit. that can help make emergency treatment affordable. Sometimes this is the best option for when you have an unexpected and costly emergency to deal with.
