When an excruciating toothache puts a hold on your plans, your only thought may be, “How can I obtain emergency dental care near me?” A dental emergency never happens at a convenient time, and if you delay in getting emergency dental care, the problem could get much worse.

Where to Find a Local Emergency Dentist

You don’t have to wait to get the pain relief and emergency dental care you need. Our emergency dentists in Ocala are available during business hours to treat all types of dental emergencies promptly and efficiently. At our emergency dental office, the goal is to provide each patient with an accurate diagnosis, effective pain relief and appropriate treatment to prevent the problem from recurring. Simply call our office during our operating hours to connect with skilled emergency dentists. We’ll make every effort to see you within the same day.

We always accept dental emergencies and provide both patients and non-patients with same-day treatment or care within 24 hours.

Examples of Dental Emergency Services

Emergency dental services include urgent dental care exams, treatments and procedures that provide immediate relief from sudden, unexpected dental problems. Our emergency providers repair structural damage, administer pain relief and address problems that could become more serious if left untreated. Our emergency dental services include all of the following:

  • Toothache treatment and pain relief
  • Treatment of cavities and tooth decay
  • Management of wisdom tooth pain or swelling
  • Emergency repairs to cracked or fractured teeth
  • Emergency tooth extraction
  • Treatment for pain, broken brackets and displaced wires related to orthodontic devices
  • Treatment of dental abscesses or infections
  • Restoration of lost or loose crowns and fillings

When Is It Time to Seek Emergency Dental Treatment?

I’m not sure if my condition is serious enough for me to schedule emergency dental care near me. How can I tell?

Any unexpected dental condition that causes pain or suffering or interferes with your normal activities provides a good reason to seek emergency dental care. Our providers routinely treat the following conditions and symptoms.

Broken or Fractured Teeth

Broken and fractured teeth should be treated as soon as possible to help prevent further breakage and infection. If your broken or chipped tooth is sharp, protect your lips and mouth by placing a small amount of dental wax over the rough area.

Knocked-Out Teeth

Emergency dentists can sometimes reimplant knocked-out teeth if you act quickly and take care of your tooth. Be sure to handle it only by the crown. Rinse the tooth and any fragments under warm water. If possible, place the tooth back into its socket. As an alternative, place it inside your cheek to keep it moist until you can obtain care. Call us immediately for further emergency instruction.

Toothache Pain and Pressure

Toothaches have various causes, and they should all be taken seriously. If your tooth pain becomes severe or is accompanied by swelling, fever, ear pain or other symptoms, call us as soon as possible to schedule an emergency evaluation.

Sudden Tooth Sensitivity

Sensitive teeth don’t always require urgent dental care, but if the symptoms occur or worsen suddenly or start after an injury or trauma to your face, they could indicate a fracture or other more serious underlying problems. Seek emergency care for unusual or abrupt sensitivity to heat, cold or sweets.

Dental Decay and Cavities

Dental decay causes cavities to develop. When the tooth root becomes exposed by decay, you may experience pain or sensitivity. Our emergency dentists can relieve the pain associated with decay and treat cavities to restore tooth integrity.

Abscessed Tooth

An abscessed tooth is a painful and serious infection that develops at the root of your tooth. Symptoms may include severe pain and pressure, facial or jaw swelling, fever, bad breath, swollen neck glands and drainage from an open sore on or near gum tissue. Always seek care at an emergency dental office promptly if you suspect that you may have an abscess. Failure to treat the condition can lead to serious complications.

Loosened or Lost Fillings

A lost or loose tooth filling may result in toothache or sensitivity, and it leaves your weakened tooth at risk for further damage. Contact us as soon as possible to replace the filling.

Broken or Lost Crowns and Restorations

If your crown falls off or breaks, the affected teeth are exposed and vulnerable. Don’t postpone treatment for broken or lost crowns or restorations. Our emergency dentists can provide both temporary and permanent solutions.

Orthodontic Pain or Injury

Pain and soft tissue injury may occur when orthodontic devices break or wires loosen unexpectedly. If you sustain an injury or your mouth becomes painful due to your braces, we can help restore comfort and stabilize the components so that they function properly.

Tooth Enamel Worn by Teeth Grinding

Nighttime teeth grinding or bruxism is an unconscious behavior that can cause severe damage to tooth enamel over time. If you notice an increase in symptoms or observe damage to your teeth, schedule an emergency evaluation. We can reinforce your enamel to make it stronger and provide tools such as night guards to help you manage your grinding habits.

Sinus Pressure

The complex relationship between your sinuses and your teeth can make it difficult to determine if sinus pressure has a dental origin. If you experience unusual or unexplained sinus pressure, we can evaluate your teeth and gums to determine if there is an underlying dental condition causing the discomfort.

What to Do When There’s a Critical Problem

My symptoms are extreme and alarming. Should I call an emergency dental office near me or seek emergency medical care?

Some conditions and injuries require intensive, life-saving treatments that emergency dentists in Ocala can’t provide. If you experience any of the following severe symptoms, seek medical care at a hospital emergency room or call 911.

  • Profuse or uncontrollable bleeding
  • Severe swelling of your face, head or neck
  • Any impact injury to your head, face or jaw

How Much Does Urgent Dental Treatment Cost?

Treatments provided by emergency dentists vary widely in cost depending on the needs of the individual patient and other factors like insurance coverage, so it’s impossible to make a general estimate. Our practice accepts most major dental plans for emergency dental care. We also offer several financing options and accept major credit cards. Getting treatment without insurance can strain your budget, but our DentRite® dental discount plan can help ease the burden. It’s not insurance, but it can reduce your cost of dental treatment by 20 to 70 percent. Everyone will qualify, and there’s no usage limit. To learn more about DentRite®, contact our office.

If I have a weekend or night emergency, should I wait until business hours resume to contact an emergency dental office near me?

If your symptoms are mild or negligible, you can probably wait for a few hours to receive treatment from our emergency dentists. However, severe pain or other distressing symptoms should be assessed immediately. Proceed to your local emergency room or call 911 if you suspect that you may have a serious dental injury or infection. When your symptoms occur during business hours, our emergency dentists in Ocala will be happy to provide the comprehensive emergency care that you need to stop tooth pain and maintain great dental health.
