What is a dental emergency?

A dental emergency is an event that causes oral pain or discomfort. These emergencies typically involve severe bleeding, trauma, infection, or damage to the teeth and soft tissues in your mouth. Contact our Roslyn, NY dental office right away for immediate attention. We will work with you to find a treatment plan that addresses your emergency dentistry needs.

Dental emergencies may include:

  • Broken teeth

  • Swelling or pain in the face around the mouth
  • Injuries to the mouth or jaw
  • Knocked-out teeth
  • Bleeding gums

Dental emergencies can happen to anyone, even patients with healthy mouths. Our team at Bella Smiles can assess any damage to your teeth and create a detailed treatment plan based on your needs.

Whether you have a cracked or lost tooth, visit our Roslyn dental office as soon as possible. Avoid permanent damage by seeking urgent dental care. Emergency dentistry is one of our general dental services.

Preventing A Dental Emergency

Dental emergencies can happen to anyone, at any time. In some cases, dental emergencies are preventable. Visit our dentists at least twice a year for preventive care exams. During a preventive care exam, our dentist will thoroughly examine your teeth, mouth, and gums.

We will look for issues with your teeth that might be causing you pain. We will look for structural issues too, such as TMJ damage, oral cancer, and signs of bite disorders. After the exam, Dr. Pop will create a treatment plan that is right for you.

Unaddressed dental problems can lead to worn teeth, cracked teeth, gum infections, and eventually tooth loss. Our main focus is to build a strong and stable mouth to support long-term oral health success.

If you play sports, remember to always wear your custom mouthguard. Mouthguards can protect your teeth from so many injuries to your mouth during contact sports.

Emergency Dentistry FAQs

What should I do if a tooth gets knocked out?

The first thing to do if one of your teeth fall out is to attempt to find the lost tooth. Rinse it with milk and attempt to put it back into place if it got dirty. Call our dentist immediately and tell us about your situation.

The sooner you can get in to see our dentist, the better chance you have of saving the tooth. Patients should see their dentist within 30 minutes of losing their tooth in an accident.

What should I do if I have a dental emergency?

The first thing to do is to reach out to your regular dentist. Do not panic if you can’t reach them immediately. Wait until you get home and try again, or contact a different emergency dentist. You can take over-the-counter pain medication for toothaches and jaw pain while you wait.

If you have a mouth injury and it won’t stop bleeding, visit the emergency room. Put pressure on the wound until a doctor can see you. Do not attempt to fix your dental injury on your own.

What is categorized as a dental emergency?

A dental emergency is a broad term that can categorize many dental issues as severe. A dental emergency is any swelling, intense pain, or discomfort that you cannot fix without a dentist. Some of the most common dental emergencies include:

  • Toothaches
  • Broken, cracked or chipped teeth
  • A knocked-out tooth
  • Lost dental fillings or crowns
  • Intense swelling of your gums and mouth
  • Constant bleeding gums

You need urgent medial attention if you have any of the mentioned issues. So visit our dental office to alleviate severe pain, stop bleeding or infection, or to save a tooth.
