Dental Emergencies in Maitland, FL

We’ve all been there at one point or another. Someone trips on the edge of the pool, falls while sprinting across the driveway, or gets hit in the face during a sports practice—and suddenly, someone is missing a tooth. When that happens, make sure to call West Maitland Dentistry as quickly as possible. We have same day appointments set aside for emergencies. After you become an established patient, you will have access to an after-hours and weekend emergency phone number where you can reach Dr. Dhaliwal in case our office is closed.

What Constitutes a Dental Emergency?

We ask that you please be courteous and only contact us in the case of a true dental emergency, so that we can remain on-call for the patients who need it most. Examples of dental emergencies include:

  • Abscessed (infected) gums or teeth (will include extreme pain)
  • Significant swelling or bleeding following a dental treatment
  • Traumatic tooth injury (knocked out, cracked, loose, significantly chipped)
  • Temporary dental crown is displaced and painful
  • Broken jaw or jaw pain
  • Pain so intense that the patient cannot sleep
  • Bulging, swelling, or knots in the facial area or gums
  • Bumps that resembles pimples, containing thick, whitish-yellow fluid on/around your gums (sign of infection)

If the answer to any of these questions is yes, contact us immediately.

Please note that minor chips and dislodged temporary crowns are typically not considered emergency situations, provided they are not painful.

If a permanent tooth has been knocked out, seeing a dentist within 60 minutes can be the difference between saving the tooth or not. We would much rather you err on the side of caution and call us, than end up losing your tooth because you did not want to bother anyone.
