Frequently Asked Questions

What Should I Do If I’ve Knocked Out A Tooth?

A knocked-out tooth is a dental emergency that requires immediate attention and swift action on your end. Here's what you should do:

1- First, try to find the tooth. Handle it only by the crown (the part you usually see), not the root, to avoid damaging it. If it's dirty, gently and quickly give it a rinse, but don't scrub it or remove any tissue fragments.

2- Next, if possible, try to place the tooth back in its socket. If you can't, keep it moist. You can put it in milk, a tooth preservation product, or hold it in your mouth next to your cheek. Avoid storing it in water because this can damage the root cells.

3- Finally, get to Monaco Dentistry as soon as possible. The quicker you get to us, the better the chance we can save your tooth. We’re located in Riverview and Apollo Beach and are equipped to handle dental emergencies. Our experienced team of doctors is on standby to assist you.

What Should I Do If My Dental Work Has Fallen Out?

If your dental work, such as a crown or filling, has fallen out, it's important to take action quickly. Here's what you can do:

1- First, remove the fallen dental work from your mouth to prevent swallowing or choking on it. If it's a crown, clean it and keep it safe – it might be possible to reattach it.

2- Next, apply a dental cement, available in most pharmacies, to the area to protect the exposed tooth. This is a temporary solution until you can see a dentist.

3- Lastly, call Monaco Dentistry and schedule an emergency appointment. Our dedicated team at both our Riverview and Apollo Beach locations is ready to assist you in such emergencies.

Until you can get to our office, it's best to avoid hard, sticky, or chewy foods that could further damage the exposed area. Also, try to chew on the opposite side of your mouth and avoid extremely hot or cold beverages to prevent sensitivity and discomfort.

What Should I Do About A Severe Toothache?

A severe toothache can be a sign of a serious dental issue and should not be ignored. Here's what you can do:

Initially, rinse your mouth with warm water and gently floss to remove any food that may be causing the pain. Over-the-counter pain relievers can help, but avoid applying aspirin directly to the tooth or gums.

If the pain persists for more than a day or two, or if it's accompanied by fever, earache, or pain when opening your mouth, it's time to call Monaco Dentistry. We offer a wide variety of emergency dentistry services and our experienced doctors can help relieve your pain and determine the underlying cause.

Remember, these steps are only temporary solutions. For all dental emergencies, it's crucial to see a dentist as soon as possible. The team at Monaco Dentistry is ready to provide prompt, professional care when you need it most.
