If you think you have an oral emergency or need a tooth extracted immediately, you should call our dentist in Rego Park at PresiDental Care right away. When it comes to saving a tooth, time is of the essence. The best way to care for a tooth that has been knocked out or is falling out is to keep it inside the mouth while you await your dental appointment, or try to put it back in place gently until our dentist can adhere it back into the mouth. Dental emergencies should be taken seriously and patients should see a dentist as quickly as possible.
If you have suffered injury to the teeth or gums you should make an appointment with our dentist in Rego Park immediately. Consequences of injuries may mean permanent damage to the tooth or more expensive treatments later on. If you are suffering from a toothache, floss to remove any food or lodged debris and rinse the mouth with warm water. A cold compress applied to the cheek can also help. Our dentist in Rego Park can clean out any food that is causing the toothache or perform an emergency filling if needed. Cavities may cause tooth pain and throbbing around the tooth’s area.
Chipped or broken teeth can also cause tooth pain that will warrant a visit to our dentist in Rego Park. If you find any bleeding around the tooth or gum area, rinse the mouth and apply a cold compress to the cheek or outside of the mouth to reduce any swelling first. Teeth that have been knocked out can be put in a glass of milk to help preserve them until our dentist is able to place the tooth back into the mouth. Be sure not to use any tools or instruments in the mouth so as not to harm teeth or gums.
