The dentists at Madison Dental are trained in treating a wide array of dental emergencies in adult and pediatric patients, using state-of-the-art techniques and technology at their Manhattan, NY, office to achieve optimal results.
When people hear the words “dental emergencies,” they tend to think of issues that require immediate, emergency treatment in an emergency room setting, such as a broken jaw or multiple teeth that have been knocked out. But in reality, dental emergencies are much broader, and include any type of issue that requires immediate attention or care, including:
lost, cracked, chipped or broken teeth
lost or broken dentures, crowns or bridges
lost or loose fillings
pain affecting one or more teeth
damaged veneers or implants
infections or abscesses
damage to the jaw or gums
Some types of emergencies may be relieved with pain medication and ice packs until the next business day, while others require immediate treatment. Madison Dental makes it as convenient as possible for patient to get emergency care for quick relief.
That depends on several factors, including the condition of the tooth. If the tooth is healthy, it may be able to be saved by placing the tooth back in the socket, between the cheek and gum or in a glass of milk and getting immediate medical care.
One of the best things you can do to prevent an emergency is to have regular dental checkups to ensure your teeth are in the best shape possible, and to make sure restorations like fillings and crowns are also in good shape. Teeth that are decayed are far more likely to become damaged. It's also important to wear mouthguards when playing sports and engaging in other activities where the mouth could become injured.
As a leading dental practice in Manhattan, Madison Dental dentists use the most advanced, pain-free techniques for root canals, helping patients throughout the New York City metro region avoid tooth loss that can occur as a result of deep decay or trauma.
