Overview

Accidents happen, which is why experienced dentist Dr. Sangiv I. Patel offers emergency dental care at his practice in Melbourne, FL. Common oral injuries include cracked, broken, and knocked-out teeth. Incidents could be caused by biting or chewing food that's too tough for your teeth to handle, a mishap while playing sports, a bad fall, or a blunt-force injury. You may or may not feel pain, but it's important to have your mouth checked after an injury to look for any hidden damage. At Sangiv I. Patel, D.D.S., PA, we will make your dental emergency a priority by providing effective treatment and steps to prevent future problems. 

Best Candidates

There will be times in which you may require emergency dental care, like if you have a tooth or restoration come out, experience pain, or sustain a cracked tooth. However, in some events, you might be unsure of how quickly you need treatment, such as when you have a loose tooth or restoration, endure a trauma that doesn't cause pain or bleeding, or have a chipped tooth. Whenever you endure a mouth injury, it's best to speak to our office. Dr. Patel and his staff can help you decide when to come in, give you strategies to manage pain, and instruct you about how to preserve your tooth or restoration. Even little injuries can result in bigger issues if not treated right away so it is best to contact our office immediately.

What To Expect

Every dental emergency is unique so Dr. Patel will carefully assess your mouth before making a diagnosis. X-rays may be required to check for additional problems. Once Dr. Patel understands the extent of your condition, he will talk to you about options and create your treatment plan. You may need one or a number of visits to fully restore your mouth.

Recovery

Based on your problem, Dr. Patel will give you instructions to help you heal after your treatment at his Melbourne, FL practice. He may write you a prescription for antibiotics or pain medication that needs to be taken as directed. He will also tell you if you need to schedule an appointment for another procedure or a follow-up exam. Once your dental emergency has been treated, you can talk to Dr. Patel about ways to prevent future injuries, including a custom mouth guard to be worn while playing sports. You need to continue to stick to a regular home oral care regimen with brushing and flossing to keep your teeth and gums strong and healthy. During your annual dental exam at his private practice, Dr. Patel will continue to observe your healing progress.

Insurance Coverage

If you are using dental insurance, we will contact your provider to ascertain your coverage once Dr. Patel has created your treatment plan. For those without dental insurance, our office accepts several payment methods, and we can help you find low-interest financing to make your treatment more affordable. Don't delay treating a dental emergency because of concerns over cost. Waiting might lead to bigger and more expensive problems.
