Did You Know? An Emergency Dentist Can Save You a Trip to the E.R.
Steps to Take in a Dental Emergency
If Your Tooth Falls Out
Carefully rinse the tooth in water. Do not scrub the surface. You can attempt to place the tooth back in the socket if you can avoid touching any exposed roots. If not, keep the tooth moist by putting it in milk or in your mouth next to your cheek.
If You Crack or Chip Your Tooth
Rinse your mouth out with warm water and bite down gently on sterile gauze if you notice any bleeding. Apply an ice pack to reduce swelling and take an over-the-counter anti-inflammatory medication to help with any pain.
If You Experience Severe Pain
Toothaches severe enough to prevent you from eating, speaking, or sleeping need emergency dental care and should be examined by a dentist as soon as possible. In the meantime, you can take anti-inflammatory medication or apply a cold compress to the area.
While punctures, cuts, and other injuries to the mouth are usually considered dental emergencies, some facial injuries may require attention from an E.R. doctor. If you have sustained trauma to the jawbone or need stitches, please go directly to the hospital.
Emergency Dental Care Services
Our Flushing, NY, dentists can use a variety of techniques to treat and repair emergency dental problems.
A severe tooth infection may require a root canal to remove bacteria and decay from the inner chamber. During root canal therapy, your emergency dentist will drill a small hole in the top of the tooth and extract the infected inner pulp. After sterilizing the area, we will fill the hole with an inert rubber-like substance and cover the tooth with a protective restoration.
Less extensive tooth decay that results in a cavity can be treated with a tooth-colored filling. In this procedure, your dentist will clean the tooth and carefully remove the decayed tissue. Then we will fill the cavity with a natural-looking bonding material expertly shade-matched to your enamel.
Crowns are a versatile solution for many kinds of emergency dental conditions like structural damage, decay, and infection. After treating the root source of the problem, we will take precise impressions of your teeth and design your custom crown. The restoration will be hand-crafted by technicians at our partner dental lab out of durable and natural-looking materials, like porcelain or zirconia. When the crown is ready, you will return to our office and have it bonded over your tooth for long-lasting protection.
While our emergency dentists will always attempt to save your natural tooth first, in some cases extraction is necessary. When tooth decay or trauma is severe, extraction may be the only option to restore your oral health. If you require an extraction, do not worry. Our dentists can provide local anesthesia to ensure your comfort during the procedure. Once you recover, we can help you replace the tooth with a traditional or implant-supported dental restoration.
If we are unable to save a tooth, we offer top-of-the-line restorations with dental implants. Implant-supported restorations replace both the visible crown and the underlying tooth root, filling the gap in your smile and protecting you from bone loss. We can discuss dental implant treatment during your emergency visit and start your treatment path as soon as possible.
"The office staff is terrific - professional, warm, and welcoming." More 5-Star Reviews
Everyone is pleasant and I’m welcomed like a friend. Small, comfortable waiting area, but I rarely use it because the hygienist is always on time. The dentists are easy to talk to and are gentle and unrushed, as is the hygienist. I always expect to hate going to the dentist, but afterword I feel happy I went to see them. Aside from minor discomfort during the cleaning, my visits are a mild experience.View on Google
