What is considered a dental emergency?

We’ve all experienced some sort of discomfort when it comes to our mouth, gums, or teeth. Some dental problems are more urgent than others. So, what’s considered a dental emergency? You’re likely experiencing a dental emergency if your tooth has been knocked out, you have a severe or persistent toothache, excessive bleeding or previous dental work has come loose or fallen out. 

what to do during a dental emergency

Always stay calm. Stressing out only makes the situation worse. Contact your St. Petersburg dentist right away. Our experienced team will get you in to see the doctor ASAP. If you’ve been in an accident and your tooth has been knocked out, keep your tooth in a container of milk or saliva. Try rinsing your mouth with warm water and applying a cold compress to the injury. Following these tips will increase your chances of saving your tooth. 

What to avoid during a dental emergency

Don’t wait! Get help immediately. Like we’ve said, the sooner you see a professional the better. If you’ve been in an accident and there’s a chance that your jaw is broken, go directly to the hospital. Non-life-threatening dental emergencies can be handled by your dentist. If you’re bleeding, do not take Aspirin. It is a blood thinner and it will cause you to bleed even more. Take Tylenol or Advil for pain relief. Always contact 4th Street Family Dentistry for emergency dental care services in St. Petersburg, FL.

Why it's important to see a professional ASAP

Seeking the help of a professional will decrease the likelihood of additional problems arising. Therefore, seeing an emergency dentist will prevent you from having to spend more money on costly dental treatment. Avoiding treatment will only cause more damage in the long run. If you’re experiencing a dental emergency, visit 4th Street Family Dentistry ASAP and our team will give you the dental care you need to feel like yourself again!

Amazing experience from the start. Dr. Leeson and his staff were very friendly and accommodating. I’ve never had a dentist spend so much time with me. In my past experiences, the dentist would barely spend 5 minutes with me. This was not the case here and I felt very well taken care of. So glad they were recommended to me!

Dr. Leeson and the team at 4th Street Family Dentistry are the best! Was looking for a dentist in the area last year and found them and can't imagine having a better dentist. Their dental plans are great and at a reasonable price so if you don't have dental insurance, no worries! I don't dread going to the dentist anymore. Highly recommend them to everyone!

Best dentist experience I’ve had thus far, honestly. Just overall very polite and the offices were really well put together. And the doctor and nurses all explained what they were doing as they were doing it. Can’t really go into everything, but there wasn’t a part of the visit I didn’t enjoy, and that’s for a dentist lol

Outstanding service!! Dr. Leeson and his staff were very friendly, knowledgeable and answered all of my questions and concerns. It’s one of the nicest dentist office I’ve been to, so much that it felt more like a spa! They are taking all of the precautions necessary to keep everyone safe in regards to COVID.

I'm new to the area, so I needed a new dentist. I was able to get right in. Everyone was so nice. I felt like family. Additionally, there are televisions on the ceiling, so you don't get bored while they're cleaning your teeth. I've already recommended 4th Street Family Dentistry to my mom and boyfriend. I will definitely go back!

This was the best Dental experience I have ever had! The staff is amazing and so friendly! I had a tooth with a filling from a different dentist office that had came out and my tooth broke. Dr. Leeson was able to extract the tooth quickly and painless! I would highly recommend to anyone that needs dental work!
