Emergency Dental Care Q&A

What is emergency dental care?

Emergency dental care treats oral health problems that develop suddenly due to accidents or underlying oral health conditions. NYC Dental Wellness and Bergen Dental Wellness offers same-day appointments to accommodate dental emergencies.

The sooner you receive treatment for decay or disease, the better it is for your overall health. If left untreated, dental emergencies can lead to severe dental pain and infections that can spread to other parts of your body.

When would I need emergency dental care?

You’ll need the emergency dental care services available at NYC Dental Wellness and Bergen Dental Wellness if you experience an injury to your mouth that causes:

  • Severe dental pain
  • Heavily bleeding gums
  • Lost crown or bridge
  • Cracked or broken teeth
  • Loose or knocked-out teeth
  • Damage to gums, lips, tongue, or cheeks

If you think your condition qualifies as an emergency, you’re probably right. Contact the NYC Dental Wellness and Bergen Dental Wellness office nearest you and speak to the staff to determine if you need an immediate in-office visit.

What should I do during a dental emergency?

If you’ve lost a tooth, recover it by grabbing the top of the tooth and rinsing it off in clean water. If possible, place the tooth back in its socket, or put it in a container of cold milk until you get to the office.

Place broken dental work like bridges or crowns in a plastic baggy. If you’re bleeding, place a piece of clean gauze or a paper towel in your mouth. You can use ibuprofen or acetaminophen to ease the pain. An ice pack can also soothe discomfort.

During your office visit, the NYC Dental Wellness and Bergen Dental Wellness team checks your teeth, gums, and other tissues for damage. They customize a care plan to address your symptoms, using advanced restorative and cosmetic dentistry techniques.

Keep up with routine dental care appointments every six months to prevent unexpected dental emergencies later. The team provides resources that help you properly care for your teeth and gums to reduce your risk of cavities, infections, and other oral health problems.
