Emergency Dental Brooklyn
Going through a painful dental emergency is difficult to do, especially if you’re struggling to find an emergency dentist in Brooklyn at the last minute. Because of patients struggling just like you are right now, we put together a 24-hour emergency dentist referral network that consists of Brooklyn emergency dentists who can see patients in as little as 24 hours. All you have to do is call us at (855)-352-6790, give us some of your information, and we’ll come back to you with a booked appointment in your name.
What You Need to Take to Your Emergency Dental Appointment
It’s extremely important that you remember to take everything we’ve listed below with you to your future emergency dentist appointment:
• Insurance information need to process and file an insurance claim, if you have dental insurance
• A list detailed any medications you’re taking regularly and/or known allergies
• Any paperwork, information, or general documentation sent home with you after a recent dental visit
It’s important that you leave yourself some extra time, be it to ask questions, fill out paperwork, and let the emergency dentist and their staff know if you have any concerns or fears. Around 15 minutes or so should be more than enough time.
Dental Emergencies Treated by Emergency Dentists
Emergency dentists see and treat a lot of different dental emergencies each day, so knowing what the are can help you to identify what you’re going through and give you a bit of peace.
Dental emergencies occur, more often than not, as a result of an underlying oral health problem that was either unidentified or left untreated. That, or you know you’re having a dental emergency as soon as something happens. For example, you’ve had a tooth fall out during a car accident.
No matter how badly you’re injured, head trauma will always come first on the list of priority injuries.
Lost or Knocked Out Teeth
No matter how the tooth managed to come out of the socket, make sure you assess yourself for head trauma and get that treated before anything else.
If you managed to find the tooth, you can try to put it back in the socket yourself or keep it safe in a cup of milk or water.
However, make sure the tooth is picked up by the crown and not by the root. Picking it up by the wrong end can make it impossible for the emergency dentist to successfully implant it back in due to irreversible damage done to the root.
Oral Infections – Abscessed Teeth
Oral infections, such as abscessed teeth, are extremely dangerous. They can infect the blood and be fatal, like any other type of infection, so they need to be treated as quickly as possible when one forms.
The best way to figure out if you have an oral infection is to pay attention to any oral pain and look for anything that resembles a pimple or a red bump in your mouth.
If you’re in any level of oral pain, have spotted a red bump in your mouth, or have a suspicion, in general, that you’re dealing with an oral infection, call us immediately.
Lost Filling or Crown
Fillings and crowns are, unfortunately, not designed to last a lifetime. When a filling or a crown is lost, it’s very important that you act fast and keep it covered until your emergency appointment we’ve scheduled for you.
Dental cement, cut up pieces of gauze, cotton balls, whatever you can get your hands on.
If you leave the tooth open an exposed, you run the risk of destroying the tooth to the point of no return, which will result in an emergency tooth extraction instead of a refill or a recap.
Going in for an Emergency Tooth Extraction
Nothing is more unsettling and earth-shattering as being told at the very last minute that you require an emergency tooth extraction. The only way to really ever be slightly prepared for an emergency tooth extraction, is to know what happens during one!
Because a numbing agent is used to freeze the area where the tooth is being extracted to ensure only minor pressure, no pain, will be felt. The tooth will either be removed whole or in pieces using a special pair of dental pliers.
Once the tooth is out, either the emergency dentist or someone from their staff will go over aftercare instructions with you that you will need to follow at home to keep the extraction site clean and free of infection.
Same Day Denture Repair in Brooklyn
It’s difficult to find same day denture repair in Brooklyn, especially emergency denture repair in Brooklyn, but not anymore! The dentists who work with denture lab technicians within our 24-hour referral network have made it possible to have a denture fitting done or have repairs made to your current set of dentures all on the same day, during the single appointment we’ve booked for you.
Emergency Dentist vs Emergency Room Doctor – Who First?
As we previously mentioned, it’s extremely important that you have any sustained head trauma before anything else, no matter how injured you may be elsewhere.
An emergency dentist is unable to treat your head trauma – it can only be done by an emergency room doctor.
While you receive treatment for any sustained head trauma, give us a call so we can start working on getting an appointment booked for you with an emergency dentist as soon as possible.
