Most dental issues can easily be prevented with proper oral hygiene, including brushing twice daily with non-abrasive, fluoride toothpaste, flossing at least once to remove food debris from between teeth, and using an alcohol-free mouthwash. In addition, you should be visiting the dentist every 6 months so that you can detect and treat any issues that do come up before they escalate.
Unfortunately, sometimes no matter how vigilant you are with your dental care, you will have a dental emergency. A dental emergency doesn't always wait for regular office hours- it can strike at any time of the day or night. That is why Amores Dental is happy to offer emergency dental services.
Emergency dentistry is an area of dentistry that focuses on patients that are experiencing a dental crisis and can't wait until regular office hours.
If you have a dental emergency, it's imperative that you seek treatment as soon as possible. Emergency dental treatment offers several benefits, including:
Available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week
Immediate relief from pain
Prevents the spread of infection
Salvage damaged/decayed tooth
If you are experiencing swelling, severe pain, and/or uncontrollable bleeding, then you qualify for emergency dental treatment at Amores Dental. We have two conveniently located offices to serve you: Dadeland and Palmetto Bay.
If you are experiencing severe pain, swelling, and/or uncontrollable bleeding, then you are having a dental emergency. If you are only having some pain that can be controlled with at-home remedies, you may be able to wait until regular office hours.
Some of the most common dental emergencies we see at Amores Dental include:
Most of the time, a toothache indicates that you have a cavity. However, if you have a severe toothache, you may have gum disease or an abscess. If you are experiencing a severe toothache, we encourage you to contact the office as soon as possible for an emergency dental appointment.
A broken tooth may be caused by trauma to the face, biting down on something hard, or using your teeth as tools. In some cases, the tooth breaks because it is severely decayed or otherwise weakened. However, no matter what has caused the tooth to break, it's important to seek treatment as soon as possible. If you do not seek treatment right away, you risk developing an infection- or the infection spreading. In addition, the broken edges of the tooth may cause trauma to your tongue, cheeks, and lips.
If your tooth is knocked out due to trauma, we may be able to save the tooth if you seek treatment within 30 minutes. First, try to find the tooth and pick it up by the crown- do not touch the roots. If possible, put the tooth back in the socket. If not, put it in some milk and bring it with you to the appointment.
Any time you experience trauma to the face or mouth, it's important to seek evaluation quickly. In some cases, you may have a small crack or chip that you can't see. If you leave these issues untreated, you risk infection and further damage.
A dental abscess is a severe infection that can damage the affected area, as well as the surrounding teeth and other tissues. Typically, an abscess will develop between the teeth and gums, at the tooth root. An abscess can get into your bloodstream and spread to the rest of your body, increasing your risk of other health complications.
When you come into our office for an emergency dental visit, we will start by providing you with local anesthesia to get your pain under control. Once you are stabilized, one of our highly qualified dentists will perform a comprehensive exam to determine the source of the pain.
We will also discuss your symptoms and how long you have been experiencing the issue, which will help us to create your treatment plan. In some cases, we will be able to complete treatment on the same day. If we are not able to complete treatment on the same day, we will stabilize you and schedule your follow-up treatment as soon as possible.
If you have never had a dental emergency, you may wonder what exactly you can expect during an emergency appointment:
First of all, it's important to note that an emergency dental exam is focused on the cause of your dental emergency. The purpose is to determine the cause and severity of your issue in order to quickly provide the best treatment. If you have any underlying medical conditions, are taking medications, or have any allergies, make sure to let us know before we begin.
Depending on the severity of your condition, we will strive to give you priority over our other patients. However, if we are in the middle of another procedure, we may stabilize you and have you wait until we can get to you.
Your aftercare instructions will depend on the treatment you receive. However, general instructions include practicing proper oral hygiene and taking any antibiotics and/or pain relievers as instructed.
In most cases, dental insurance will cover emergency treatment. However, some providers have caveats. Therefore, our friendly office staff will work with your provider to determine your coverage. If you do not have insurance or your insurance does not cover emergency treatment, we do offer several financing options for patients who qualify.

Very impressed with dental office , everyone there is so friendly and professional. All the Drs and hygienist are extremely knowledgable and take their time to explain treatment and answer questions. This office is very fun, vibrant, and well maintained . I highly recommended this office .
A family atmosphere, and a friendly staff (that makes you 'actually' feel comfortable at the dentist), is the recipe for success, at Amores Dental. Not to mention, if you're lucky enough, your appointment might just be during afternoon cafecito time! If you're looking for a dentist, your search ends here!
Awesome service and customer care. Staff was very courteous, kind and professional. I personally do not like to visit the dentist office, but their staff actually made it a pleasant experience.
