Emergency Dentistry, Dental Care when you need it

At Raynald Michel DDS, we understand that the circumstances of a dental emergency are inconvenient. As your Fort Lauderdale, Florida dental office, we can help during these stressful times. 

Some of the reasons people seek emergency treatment are:

  • Losing a filling
  • Chipping a tooth
  • Abscess
  • Temporary crown falls out
  • Knocked out or broken tooth
  • Possible broken jaw
  • Severe toothache or jaw pain
  • Debris stuck between teeth

Whatever your emergency is, Dr. Michel will get you in the office and relieve your pain as quick as possible. If you are on vacation in Fort Lauderdale, Florida and are experiencing a dental emergency, we will fit you in the same day. If your regular family dentist is unable to see you for days, call our dental office to get immediate attention.

Don’t Wait for Things to Get Better

Many patients start feeling some mild pain or discomfort in their mouth but decide to ignore it and hope it goes away—only to find themselves waking up with overwhelming pain and swelling. Dental emergencies like this are common, but you don’t have to endure pain longer than necessary. 

We Can Help with Your Pain

When you are experiencing a dental emergency, the first thing you need is pain relief. Our dental staff will work hard to find room in our schedule to take care of our patients. We understand how stressful it is to need something done ASAP, especially if your emergency occurs over the holidays, on vacation, or after regular office hours. 

If you are experiencing severe pain, do not wait! Severe tooth or jaw pain could indicate an infection that needs to be looked at immediately. 

What to Do During a Dental Emergency in Fort Lauderdale

If you have knocked your tooth out, it’s important to see us as soon as possible to give us a better to save your tooth. If you find yourself in this situation, we recommend keeping the tooth moist by placing it in liquid. 

Losing a crown or filling may not be painful, but this is still considered a dental emergency. The sooner Dr. Michel can see you, the higher the chances he has to save the existing crown. Lost fillings can’t be replaced, but they can be filled in to avoid infection or damage to the tooth. 

Any pain should be addressed immediately, and you don’t have to wait for it to be severe to consider it an emergency. Even mild discomfort should be seen to avoid future dental complications. Our dental staff is available to take calls if you have any questions or concerns about oral health issues; we may be able to offer advice or help until we can see you. 

We Are Here to Help You!

If your dental emergency happens during our regular office hours, call our office to schedule a same-day emergency. We will make every effort to see you as promptly as possible.
