A healthy, beautiful smile starts here

Emergency Services in Windermere, Florida

Many people head straight to the emergency room when they have tooth pain. The truth is that this is inefficient and usually not very helpful. Most emergency rooms aren’t set up to handle dental emergencies. They might be able to give you some antibiotics if your emergency is caused by an infection, but they will still advise you to see your dentist as soon as possible. For this small service, you are likely to be hit with a huge co-pay or bill.

Call our office instead. We’ll get you in quickly, relieve your pain, and come up with a treatment plan for your problem. This saves you both money and time, not to mention days of dental pain. Of course, if you are experiencing a life-threatening emergency, please go to your local emergency room.

Common Dental Emergencies

Sudden Tooth Pain - Tooth pain should never be ignored. Many serious conditions can cause tooth pain, including:

  • Cavities that have penetrated deep into the tooth
  • Advanced gum disease
  • An abscessed tooth
  • Exposed tooth roots
  • An impacted tooth

Chipped or Fractured Teeth – Chipped or broken teeth can be caused by sudden trauma to the mouth or by simply biting down on a hard object. Sometimes this happens because you had a cavity and didn’t know it, and the internal structure has been weakened. If possible, keep the chip or piece that broke off of the tooth and bring it with you to your appointment.

Lost Teeth – Whether your tooth was knocked out due to an injury or you lost a tooth for no apparent reason, losing a tooth is a dental emergency. In some cases, we can replace the tooth if we can get to it fast enough, but sometimes a lost tooth will have to be replaced with a dental implant or a bridge. Our chances of saving the tooth are best if you retrieve the tooth and quickly rinse it with cool water, avoiding the root area. Try to replace the tooth back in the socket, but don’t force it. If the tooth can’t be replaced in the socket, keep it in a glass of milk. Call our office immediately.

Other Dental Emergencies

Some of the other reasons we would need to see you quickly include:

  • A tooth has become dislodged (but not fully knocked out)
  • An object is stuck between your teeth that can’t be removed with brushing or dental floss
  • A filling or crown has fallen out
  • You are experiencing a painful dental abscess
  • Injury to the gums or palate has occurred

HIGHLY recommend HWD! The entire staff is friendly, the office is beautiful, and Dr. Roperia was so knowledgeable and thorough. I’m so tentative when choosing a dentist, and I can honestly say that this is the best dental experience I have ever had!

The dental office is new and beautiful, which makes you feel comfortable and welcome. I had a procedure done, which helped discover a serious issue that my previous dental office of 8 years didn’t address. Dr. Roperia was kind and understanding of me being nervous and immediately put me at ease. I’m very excited about our future together!
