We can handle various types of emergency dental services, in our Boca Raton, FL office including the following.
Tooth pain often results from decay that has gone beyond the enamel and dentin into the pulp, where the tooth’s nerves are housed. Often an emergency root canal is the best option for pain relief. Until you visit us, you can apply ice to the outside of the jaw to reduce any swelling and take ibuprofen to manage the pain.
A chipped or broken tooth is an example of a sudden dental emergency that can occur from something as simple as biting into food or being involved in a hard collision. If any pieces fall from your mouth, you can gather them in a bag and bring them to our Boca Raton, FL office, take ibuprofen to decrease any discomfort. Although we will make every possible effort to salvage your natural tooth, if the damage is too extensive, we may have to consider extracting the tooth entirely.
