A dislodged tooth or severe tooth pain requires urgent dental care. When your child breaks a tooth playing sports or you have a toothache that will not subside, give us a call at Optum Dental Arts. We offer emergency dentistry for new and existing patients in the greater Tampa Bay area. In many cases, we can provide same day emergency dental care at our facility in Tampa near Carrollwood.
Dental emergencies require medical care, but not from the ER or local urgent care center. Dental issues require the expertise of a dentist and the necessary equipment to save a tooth or perform emergency dental treatments. If you have an oral injury that has impacted your teeth or you have oral pain, call our team at Optum Dental Arts. We can offer advice on the next step, and often we can see patients the same day for emergency dental care. Our office has extended hours, including Saturday scheduling, and we leave space to handle emergency patients at our dental center in Tampa.
Urgent Dental Care
There are some dental issues that need immediate attention. The most critical is a dislodged tooth. If a tooth is knocked out partially or completely, it is possible to restore the tooth if you receive immediate dental treatment. Never touch the root of the tooth – just call our team and let us know you have a dislodged tooth. We will advise you on what to do to preserve the tooth and find a prompt time for you to visit our center. Other dental issues that may need emergency dental care include:
- Severe tooth pain
- Swelling in the jaw or gums
- Metal taste in mouth
- Cracked tooth, crown or filling
- Bleeding or gum tissue damage
At Optum Dental Arts, we want you to call us if you have any oral health concerns. Some issues may not be an emergency, but should be looked at promptly. If you need urgent dental care, we will always do our best to see you the same day or as soon as possible. Contact us at our dental center near Carrollwood in Tampa when you need emergency dentistry.
