At some point in their lives, most people will undergo a dental emergency
, and the real question will be whether your situation actually constitutes an emergency.
Many situations can actually be managed during regular office hours, and some can even wait till your next regularly scheduled appointment. In order to determine whether or not you have an actual emergency, you should consider the following criteria.
If you have any uncertainty about your situation, you should contact your dentist and explain exactly what has occurred and what you are feeling.
Most dentists set aside time to handle dental emergencies, so when you do have one, it can probably be worked into Dr. Patel’s schedule right away.
The important point is that you should always contact us when you feel you have a dental emergency. If it turns out that you have a legitimate issue, it will need to be handled as soon as possible.
In some cases, fast action can actually save a tooth or can prevent significant blood loss.
Regardless of how busy our schedule is at Dr. Maitri Patel’s dental clinic in Ocoee, FL, we always reserve some time for dental emergencies.
When you have a legitimate dental emergency, you should contact us
immediately to make arrangements for an appointment.
If your emergency occurs after hours, the answering service will put you in contact with one of our team members, and that person will handle your emergency situation.
