Emergency Dentistry

Dental emergencies are not only painful and uncomfortable; they can also be potentially life-threatening in extreme cases. If you’re experiencing severe dental pain or bleeding, you should contact our trained emergency dentist near you as soon as possible.

WHEN DO YOU NEED EMERGENCY DENTAL CARE?

Please call Westbay Dental if you experience:

  1. Pain due to inflammation of the dental pulp
  2. Pain due to the development of localized bacterial infection or a pus-filled abscess
  3. Tooth fracture resulting in soft tissue trauma
  4. Broken restorations, including lost crowns and cracked bridges
  5. Uncontrolled bleeding

Dr. Tiwary also provides emergency dentistry in Tampa, FL, in case of ruptured sutures, severe dental caries, or faulty orthodontic wires or attachments causing trauma to your gums.

HOW TO REDUCE THE LIKELIHOOD OF DENTAL EMERGENCIES

Although dental emergencies may occur at any time, you can minimize the chances by following these tips:

  1. Always wear protective mouthguards when you play sports or indulge in physical activity
  2. Get your teeth regularly examined for cavities, decay, or other problem like chipping or gum disease
  3. Keep your emergency dentist’s name handy where you can find it easily
  4. Maintain an excellent oral hygiene routine

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.

WHAT TO DO IN CASE OF DISLODGED, BROKEN OR CRACKED TEETH

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, Dr. Tiwary may perform an extraction and replace the tooth with a partial, bridge or implant.
