Dental Emergencies

The first step is to call our emergency dentist in 33411, and we will see you as soon as possible.

Emergency Care for Knocked-Out Tooth

The most critical dental emergency is a knocked-out permanent tooth. We have about two hours in which we have any hope of successfully re-implanting the tooth. Call us right away so we can give you instructions for handling the tooth and prepare for your arrival.

Severe Toothache

Some emergencies require immediate treatment at our Royal Palm Beach dental office, and these usually involve a severe toothache. Tooth pain is always a sign that something needs our attention, and in the case of severe pain, timely treatment can make the difference between saving and losing a tooth.

We may be able to remove the decay and repair the tooth with a filling. If the decay has advanced to the innermost part of your tooth, a root canal or even tooth extraction may be necessary.

Less Critical Dental Emergencies

Less critical situations usually involve problems like a lost filling, loose dental crown, or broken tooth. These emergencies don’t typically require immediate attention unless you are in pain. But Dr. Bussell needs to see you as soon as possible to investigate the problem and prevent further damage to the tooth.
