Tooth Pain?
We Can Help

We know how debilitating extreme tooth pain can be. If you have broken, cracked or missing teeth that need some love, we welcome you to schedule a consultation with us! 


At 4th Street Family Dentistry, we make time in our schedule to help patients who are having dental emergencies. If you’re in severe pain or think you may be experiencing a dental emergency, contact our office immediately and we’ll try to get you in ASAP. 


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!

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!
