Providing Immediate Pain Relief and Long-term Oral Health with Emergency Dentistry

Do you have a dental emergency in Dunedin, Florida? Lepore Comprehensive Dentistry offers same-day dental appointments when you need urgent dental care. Whether you have a broken tooth or excruciating toothache, Drs. Ryan Lepore and Erin Dougherty are here for you in these stressful times. When you need emergency dental care, please call our office immediately for pain relief and restored oral health. 

What dental situations qualify for emergency dentistry?

A dental emergency refers to any situation that needs treatment right away. When delayed, dental emergencies can cause unnecessary pain, widespread infections, and oral health complications like tooth loss. 

The following are common dental emergencies we encounter in our office.

  • Knocked-out teeth 
  • Cracked or broken teeth
  • Debilitating toothaches
  • Lost or loose fillings and crowns
  • Something stuck between teeth
  • Gum bleeding
  • Dental abscesses

We understand dental emergencies can be scary and painful. When you call or get referred to us by your dental office, we’ll try to book you in as soon as possible. The earlier we treat you, the higher the chances of treatment success.

How do we treat dental emergencies?

We try our best to see dental emergencies immediately. However, before you reach our office, we offer first-aid tips over the phone to ensure your dental situation doesn’t deteriorate. When you arrive at our office, our team will promptly diagnose your case and offer one or a combination of the following emergency treatments.

  • Tooth fillings for cavities and minor tooth damage
  • Dental crowns for extensive tooth damage or decay
  • Antibiotics and painkillers to manage infections and pain, respectively

Some patients may be tempted to delay or postpone a dental emergency, hoping it will go away. Unfortunately, failing to address a dental emergency only compounds your problems, resulting in unnecessary discomfort, widespread infections, and tooth loss. Don’t put off that dental emergency. See a dentist as soon as possible before the situation gets out of hand.
