Dental emergencies can’t wait—that’s what makes them an emergency! We know that given the current global situation, you may feel unsure about whether or not you can, or even should, see the dentist for certain concerns.

Just call us at 850-445-7603 so we can get to seeing you ASAP!
What Counts as a Dental Emergency?
The first question you might have is, “What’s actually considered a dental emergency?” If you’re not a dental professional, it’s understandably not always the easiest to determine this on your own. Here’s a list of some of the most common dental emergencies:
- Broken tooth
- Knocked-out tooth
- Loose permanent tooth
- Severely cracked tooth (crack goes down to the nerve)
- Severe dental abscess/infection
If any of those situations applies to you, please seek professional medical attention, like Dr. Henson and our team, as soon as possible. The faster you get emergency dental care, the better off your health and your smile will be.
Still not quite sure if what’s going on with your tooth or teeth calls for urgent dental care? Your best bet is to give us a call so we can provide an assessment over the phone and steer you in the right direction.
