How to find a 24/7 emergency dentist in Fort LauderdaleOur dental referral specialist can help you locate an emergency dentist near you in less than 3 minutes.
For Lauderdale is a city with over 90 dentists2, meaning it’s not too difficult to find one. People often search through Google, or go to websites like Yelp to find a dentist. Even using Google Maps will show you where one is located, his phone number, and even reviews. If you want to make locating a dentist hassle free, simply give us a call. You will have to be on the phone less than three minutes before we schedule an appointment with an emergency dentist near you. In three minutes we will ask you about your location, type of insurance if you have any, and what sort of dental emergency you are experiencing. We will locate an emergency dentist for you immediately.
According to a research done by McKinsey & Company, around 38% of adults in Florida haven’t had a visit to the dentist in the past 12 month3. 60% of them have named “cost” the reason they haven’t been to the dentist, as stated by the American Dental Association4. While going to the dentist can be expensive, preventive cost is important if you want to save your teeth, but also save your money. Brushing and flossing your teeth every day and after meals isn’t sufficient. Regular checkups and cleanings every six months are the best way you can avoid complicated procedures. That is exactly why insurance companies include free checkups and cleanings twice a year. They too know that preventive care helps with keeping your teeth healthy.
Things to know before your emergency dentist appointmentPreparing for your emergency dental visit will help minimize anxiety and reduce the overall time you will have to spend at the dentist office.
If you have dental anxiety before your emergency dentist appointment, make sure you tell the dentist. He can use sedation in the form of nitrous oxide, better known as laughing gas, if you’re afraid. Dentists can use other techniques such as guiding you through the treatment, explaining to you every step of the procedure. The dentist can talk to the assistant about anything non-related to the treatment because it may distract you from it. Also, the dentist office may have TVs that you can watch while you’re getting your teeth repaired. Bring your headphones to the dentist appointment if you can’t stand the sound of the drill and music calms you down. You can also bring a stress relief ball for yourself, or a toy for your child, because holding on to something can keep you calm. Finally, bring a friend with you to the appointment. Knowing that someone close to you is in the waiting room can give you a sense of security. In case you’re in pain during the treatment, don’t be shy or too proud to tell the dentist, because some people are naturally resistant to anesthesia and may need more.
Besides finding ways of overcoming your anxiety, you can focus on some other things you need to bring to the dentist. Your dental records can help the dentist see your past treatments and can help him treat you better. Call your previous dentist for a copy of these and forward them to your new dentist.

A number of reasons are responsible for dentists not taking in too many walk-ins. The first one is that dentists are so busy that they can’t take in a patient without an appointment. That is why the staff at the dentist office will probably turn you away, asking you to make an appointment for next time. Another reason is that it takes great precision is arranging the dentist’s time. It’s not unusual for a dentist to perform a checkup and cleaning on one patient, while another one is waiting for anesthesia to take effect. Dentists would have to cancel or postpone other patients’ appointments if they want to treat your dental emergency, and that is not a professional thing to do.
If you want to avoid thinking about what dentist to go to, or which one might take you in, and which one turn away, give us a call. By calling us you’re not risking getting turned away, but are getting the best service possible and an appointment scheduled with an emergency dentist near you whenever you want. Even when the dentist office near you is closed when you call us, we can still schedule an appointment there first thing in the morning. That is due to our cooperation with many dentists in Fort Lauderdale. You can also stop being worried about your insurance, because we’ll find a dentist that is in network with your insurance. Even if you don’t have insurance, we can find one that will accept your form of payment or help with financing.
Top emergency dentist procedures in Fort LauderdaleLearn about common dental emergencies and treatments.
Fort Lauderdale’s top emergencies are mostly about chipped teeth or crowns. While both of them not too serious, they should be repaired as soon as possible. If not, they could cause more serious problems such as an infection. If your tooth gets fractured, you should rinse your mouth with warm water, then immediately see a dentist. The faster you go to an emergency dentist, the more chances he has of stopping the crack from spreading and saving the tooth. If your crown falls off, the tooth under it will be very sensitive to hot or cold. The reason why it came off is probably because the tooth under the crown needs repairing.
