Common Dental Emergency FAQ's

If you are experiencing pain you will want to contact Dr. Z immediately to set an appointment. Prior to your appointment, you may want to apply a cold compress or ice pack to the area in order to reduce or prevent swelling. You may also want to take an Ibprofuren (not aspirin, as aspirin may cause excessive bleeding in a dental emergency) to help with the pain. 

If your tooth is knocked out, contact Dr. Z immediately for an emergency appointment. Time is of the essence, it is important to see your dentist within an hour of your tooth being knocked out. Handle the tooth with caution as to limit further damage to the root. Always handle the tooth by the crown and not the root. Touching the root can damage the cells necessary for re-attachment to the bone.

If your tooth has been knocked out gentle rinse the tooth in clean water to remove any excess dirt, (do not scrub the tooth as that can cause further damage). Place the cleaned tooth between your cheek and gum to keep it moist. If you cannot put it back in your mouth, find clean gauze to wrap the tooth, and place it in saline solution or milk until your appointment. 

If you are experiencing a toothache, contact Dr. Z for an emergency appointment. Prior to your appointment, you will want to rinse your mouth out with warm water to clean it out. Then gently floss your teeth as to remove any food that may be caught between your teeth. Take an Ibuprofen for pain relief, and if you are experiencing swelling use a cold compress on the area you are experiencing the pain. 

Use common sense and be cautious in the things you do. For example:

  • Avoid chewing, ice, hard candy, and popcorn kernels as all of these can crack a tooth.
  • Wear a mouthguard when participating in contact sports.
  • NEVER use your teeth to cut things. Use scissors or a tool designed for those tasks.

I Have been going to Dr. Z for about three weeks maybe a little longer. When I first came to him I was in so much pain. I had an abscess tooth.He was very kind and his staff was very kind. He is very knowledgeable And wants to help people that need it. I am on my way to being pain free. Every person That works for him is very awesome and kind. I have not went to a dentist for a while. I just have had bad experiences going to dentist. Finding Dr. Z is the best thing that has happened for my teeth in me. Thank you God for having Smile resort cross my path.

Brian C.

So I've been afraid of the dentist since I had a bad experience. I had a tooth that is really bad and made a call here. Dr Z took good care of me and made sure I was completely comfortable along this journey. Definitely give him a shot if you have a fear of dentists. I will definitely be returning . Clean office and very friendly staff.

Todd B.

for my Abcessed tooth that was so painful.When I arrived they could appreciate how much pain I was in an within 5 minutes rushed me into a room. Then quickly numbed me up real good to provide immediate relief from the pain. After 30 minutes to relax and. let the novacaine work in Dr Z came in and went to work. This tooth was decayed to my gumline and had been told by another dentist I would need a surgical removal,cutting and stitches, an expensive endeavor. Dr Z used one utensil and in 60 seconds my tooth and any pain was gone. Very courteous,professional,caring and affordable experience. 5* isn't enough for Dr Z,highly recommend Dr. Z and staff for taking care of ANY dental issue you have! Straight forward,no nonsense dentist.
Thanks again to all of you at Dr Zimmermams office.

An amazing dentist!! I called Dr Zimmerman on a Sunday in alot of pain. Despite being a weekend and dealing with ongoing office renovations, Dr Z saw me immediately and didn't rush; he took his time checking everything and explained in detail the issues found, how they developed and what my options were. He did everything possible to ensure my comfort over the following weeks. To speak to his dedication - During this time, the city was closing offices due to a hurricane passing through. While Dr Zimmerman didn't ask his staff to do so, he came into the office during the hurricane to care for a patient and gave out his cell # so we could reach him in case of emergency or if the pain escalated. At no time did I feel as though I was going through this alone. I had a good amount of dental work done and probably wasn't the most pleasant patient at times, but everyone in his office went above and beyond to be patient, kind and reassuring. I used to go to a local corporate ran dental office with a revolving door of new dentists each time I went in. After seeing Dr Zimmerman, going to the dentist no longer has to be a negative experience. Thank you Smile Resort for treating me so well!

Nelson B.

I had severe upper gum pain caused by dry socket, a result of another dentist that made the extractions improperly. I called Dr. Z by a referral from a friend. Dr. Z attended me as an emergency, made same day surgery for my extreme acute pain. 7 hours later after the surgery I was pain free.

Dr. Z alose called my home the next day to see how I was, I was shocked that a doctor would care that much of my recovery. The best dentist I've ever seen, thank God for doctors like these that really care for those patients in pain. Best doctor ever!
