Have you ever experienced a dental emergency? They can be frightening and overwhelming, but fortunately our talented and experienced Garden City South emergency dentist
here at The Gentle Dentist is here to provide you emergency care should you ever need it. We are here to inform you about some of the most common dental emergencies that we see so you can be more informed should you find yourself in one of these situations, or in a situation similar to any of these.
Urgent Dental Care Garden City
One of the most common dental emergencies is a tooth being knocked out. If your tooth is ever knocked out, it is imperative that you visit our Garden City South emergency dentist
as soon as possible. If the tooth is put back in place soon enough, the bone and tissue there may still be able to support it properly. Another common emergency that we see here at The Gentle Dentist is a loose crown or filling, or a crown or filling falling out. This usually happens while you are eating. If a crown or filling falls out, the tooth that it came from is likely to be extremely sensitive, and you may find eating or drinking painful as a result. A crown might fall out if the tooth underneath has decayed. No matter the reason why it has fallen out, you should visit our Garden City South emergency dentist
as soon as possible to avoid any pain and discomfort and keep your tooth protected.
We also often have patients come in because a tooth has broken or cracked. This can also make the tooth highly sensitive and subject to toothache. It is important to have a broken or cracked tooth addressed and treated right away in order to prevent it from fracturing any further, and because the break can expose the tooth’s pulp to bacteria, leading to painful infection. These are only some of the many emergencies that we treat here at The Gentle Dentist. If you ever find yourself facing a dental emergency situation, do not forget that our Garden City South emergency dentist is here to help.
