When You Need Emergency Dental Care

Accidents happen, and knowing what to do in the event of one can save your teeth. Dental emergencies are acute conditions that affect the enamel and surrounding soft tissues. When participating in sports or recreational activities, your Elmhurst, NY, dentist recommends wearing a mouthguard to protect your mouth. You can also benefit from avoiding hard candies and other foods that may chip, crack, or fracture a tooth.

At Family Dental Rego Park, Dr. Binod Verma and Dr. Supriya Verma can help you better prepare for dental emergencies during a visit to our office. Treatment depends on the severity of the injury but can include over-the-counter medications, tooth replacement, or a filling.

When You Need Emergency Dental Care 

Your Elmhurst, NY, dentists at Family Dental Rego Park are available for all types of emergencies, from minor problems to major issues. If you have severe uncontrollable pain in your gums, have had trauma to your teeth, face, or mouth, or notice signs and symptoms of swelling or infection in these areas, it's critical that you seek treatment as soon as possible. If you have braces, you must visit us when a bracket, band, or wire breaks or becomes loose.

Other reasons you may need emergency dental care include:

  • Lost crown or filling
  • Cut or bitten cheek, lip, or tongue
  • Chipped or fractured permanent tooth
  • Knocked out permanent tooth

Prepare for dental emergencies, and don't put off visiting your Elmhurst, NY, dentist if one occurs. If you have painful swelling, a dental abscess, toothache, or if a tooth is loose, broken, or knocked out, make an appointment right away.
