Dental emergencies are a common problem impacting people of all ages, although the majority of traumatic dental injuries affect children and teenagers. Whether you suffer tooth trauma or develop a sudden toothache with no obvious explanation, it’s important to get fast relief for your dental emergency. When the injury is limited to your teeth and gums, the best option is to be treated promptly by a dental professional rather than going to the emergency room. Timely and accurate diagnosis and treatment of dental emergencies isn’t always carried out when patients go to hospital emergency departments. At Riverside Dental, we offer emergency dentistry for many problems, including painful toothaches; knocked out, dislodged, abscessed, cracked or chipped teeth; painful tooth root infections and a condition called dry socket. If you require an emergency dentist near you in Jacksonville, FL, our team is here to promptly relieve your pain and restore your oral health. Call us and we’ll do everything we can to work you into our schedule!
When a tooth is luxated, that means it’s dislocated or dislodged from its normal position. During an injury, the tooth can get pushed forward, backward or sideways, partially out of or into the socket. Treatment for a dislodged tooth in Jacksonville, FL involves Dr. Spencer repositioning and stabilizing it. Splinting is only recommended for teeth that are still mobile after repositioning. Dislodged permanent teeth usually require root canal treatment.
Composite bonding is an effective and fast option to repair chips in molars. Dr. Spencer places the tooth-colored resin on top of your chipped tooth, shapes it and then uses a special dental light to harden it. Porcelain veneers are the preferred method for fixing chips in front teeth. We provide a temporary resin veneer that you’ll wear until your final veneer comes back from the dental lab.
If you experience a dental emergency in Jacksonville, FL, we offer same- or next-day appointments. We’ll accurately diagnose the underlying cause of the problem, relieve your discomfort and always try to save your tooth and fully restore its function. We offer several types of sedation to alleviate dental anxiety and ensure your ultimate comfort. We accept insurance and offer third-party financing to help you pay for unexpected emergencies, because you shouldn’t have to worry about affording unplanned dental care.
