Emergency Dental Treatment in Boynton Beach

Anyone who has ever had a toothache or sustained a dental injury can tell you that it’s a painful and worrisome experience. When dental disease or accidents affect the teeth and the surrounding tissues, the discomfort and associated symptoms can significantly affect one’s oral health and overall well-being.

We’re here for you when you need us most!

Whether it’s the result of a long-simmering problem, an acute flare-up, or trauma, a dental emergency requiring skilled endodontic care can happen! Our office often sees patients referred by dentists or gets contacted directly by individuals experiencing a nasty toothache or needing timely endodontic care for a fractured, injured, or dislodged tooth.

Alleviating pain and discomfort

  • Toothaches

Remember, if you’re suffering from a toothache, we can provide you with the prompt assessment and timely care needed. Our endodontist will review the history of your discomfort and carefully examine your tooth— taking diagnostic films as needed to determine the precise underlying source of your symptoms.

When a deep cavity causes irreversible damage to the vital tissues within the involved tooth, and if the tooth is restorable, we typically perform a root canal procedure to alleviate your distress. If an infection is already present, we can provide prompt and necessary care to resolve it before further consequences ensue. As a highly trained specialist, our endodontist offers the leading non-surgical and surgical solutions required to save teeth and preserve one’s natural smile.

  • Chipped, cracked, or fractured teeth

While it’s not uncommon for a tooth to chip, crack, or fracture as the result of an accident, such as biting down on a piece of ice, chewing on a pencil, or sustaining trauma from a direct blow to the face and mouth, the extent of the damage may or may not be obvious. With several years of advanced training, our endodontist is well-equipped to check if the dental nerve and vital tissues are exposed or compromised. Our endodontist uses the most advanced technology to view all aspects of a tooth in the greatest of detail and provide the appropriate, timely care or monitoring as indicated.

  • Dentoalveolar Injuries

Our office also treats teeth that have sustained traumatic injuries involving the teeth and the bone surrounding the teeth. These injuries, known as dentoalveolar injuries, can include a tooth (or teeth) that has gotten a little dislodged, moved partially out of place, or completely “knocked out” of its socket. In these situations, saving and maintaining a natural smile requires immediate dental care to replant, reposition, and stabilize the involved teeth and/or put the bone back into the correct anatomical position.

Dental Trauma

Dental trauma can result in a defect as minor as a small chip in tooth enamel to a more extensive and painful crack or fracture. With sufficient force, a tooth can even be displaced or completely knocked out of its socket. With prompt emergency care, many injured teeth can be restored and saved.
