Emergency Dentistry

Your Child’s Dental Health Is Our Priority

Dental emergencies can indicate a serious problem, and untreated pain or trauma can lead to dental issues in the future. Dr. Frank C. Pettinato II, DMD, MS, offers emergency dentistry in North Port, FL, and the Venice, Port Charlotte, and Englewood, FL, areas. We will provide help with urgent care for issues like damaged teeth, knocked-out teeth, infections, and more.

Why Emergency Care Is Critical

A toothache can be a sign of a worsening infection due to tooth decay or other dental damage — but it can be hard to tell, which is why you should contact us for an accurate diagnosis. Emergency intervention can help you:

  • Make sure any infection doesn’t spread
  • Repair knocked out teeth
  • Repair damaged teeth or arrange treatment for jaw trauma or damage 
  • Relieve toothaches or dental pain

Identifying an Emergency

If you are unsure what warrants an emergency, call us to see what steps to take for your child’s dental pain or trauma. Some of the most easily identifiable emergencies include:

  • Knocked out tooth
  • Chipped or fractured tooth
  • Toothaches – if the toothache persists or is severe, contact our dentist
  • Possible broken or fractured jaw

Treatment Process

Your child’s treatment depends on their dental emergency. Dr. Frank C. Pettinato II, DMD, MS, will help your child get pain relief quickly and answer any questions you may have regarding our treatment process, so don’t hesitate to contact us!
