Experiencing a dental emergency can be both scary and painful. Many people are unsure of what to do. Should you go to the dental emergencyemergency room or wait to see your dentist? For serious or life-threatening situations, you should always call 911 or go to the emergency room. For situations that are not life-threatening, such as a tooth that has been chipped or knocked out, a dentist can treat the problem. Dr. Mark Boukzam, your Deerfield Beach, FL emergency dentist, provides in-office emergency dental treatment.

Types of Dental Emergencies

There are many different types of dental emergencies. Urgent situations require immediate dental attention, while non-urgent situations can wait a few days if immediate assistance is not possible. However, it is still important to see a dentist within a few days for non-urgent situations. The sooner the problem is addressed by your Deerfield Beach emergency dentist, the better.

As mentioned, urgent dental emergencies require immediate attention. Examples of urgent dental emergencies include:

  • A loose or knocked out permanent tooth
  • Painful swelling in or around the mouth
  • A cracked tooth that is painful
  • An extremely painful toothache

There are several other dental situations that are problematic and require dental attention sooner rather than later. However, these situations are not urgent so it is not necessary to see the dentist immediately. Non-urgent dental situations can be treated within a few days, but should not go untreated indefinitely. Examples of non-urgent dental situations include:

  • A missing filling, crown or bridge
  • A broken dental retainer or night guard
  • Food particles stuck in between teeth

It is not always easy to know if a situation is a true dental emergency requiring immediate attention. Remember, for urgent dental emergencies, contact your dentist right away. If you do experience a dental emergency, contact Dr. Boukzam, your Deerfield Beach, FL emergency dentist by calling (954) 429-8506.
