If you notice any discomfort, pain, or alteration to your bite, don’t wait until it deteriorates into a complicated problem; contact our skilled dentist in Tampa, FL, for emergency dentistry treatment near you.
If your tooth gets knocked out or dislodged, please give Westbay Dental immediately for guidance. Hold the tooth by the top part or crown and try not to touch the roots. Keep the tooth safely in a container of milk and get to our clinic within 30 minutes, if possible. Place an ice pack on the jaw or outside of the cheek. The longer you wait, the harder it becomes to re-insert the tooth in its socket.
In the case your tooth cracks or is fractured, West Bay Dental may perform an extraction and replace the tooth with a partial, bridge or implant.
