What Constitutes a Dental Emergency?
Most dental emergencies involve severe or chronic pain in your tooth or jaw. However, some emergencies can be painless. The most common dental emergencies involve any of the following:
- A broken, chipped, or cracked tooth
- A knocked-out (avulsed) tooth
- Severe and persistent tooth or jaw pain
- An abscessed tooth
- A partially dislodged tooth
- Loose or broken dental restoration
- Bleeding caused by injury to soft tissue in your mouth
You must seek immediate dental attention if you experience any of the above signs and symptoms. Our emergency dentists in Mahopac are on hand to help relieve your pain and restore your dental health through prompt services.
Our Dental Emergency Services
We can schedule same-day appointments to help you alleviate your pain and address your situation to prevent future problems. If you're experiencing severe pain, we understand that it can be challenging to bear with until your appointment. Our team always works to accommodate you as soon as possible.
We treat all dental emergencies within our working hours. When you contact our office, we evaluate your condition, determine the extent of the dental emergency and work to ensure you are treated promptly.
If your emergency occurs after hours, you can call our offices and leave a message. Our staff will get back to you quickly and provide instructions on managing the dental emergency and minimizing any pain and discomfort until our dentist can see you. Depending on your emergency, we may schedule you for an appointment the next day or ask you to come in the morning before the office opens. You can count on us to make every effort to provide the treatment you need to alleviate your pain and restore your health.
Root Canal Therapy
Root canal therapy, also known as endodontic treatment, is a treatment that allows us to remove a painful tooth infection and save the tooth. Bacteria can enter and infect the inner tooth, known as the pulp, when the soft tissue is exposed due to a crack or untreated decay. Infected pulp can cause severe pain and constitutes a dental emergency.
During root canal treatment, our dentist removes the infected tissue and then cleans, disinfects, and reshapes the canals. The dentist then fills the canals with a natural polymer to stabilize the roots. Finally, we will fill the tooth and cap it with a crown to protect it and restore its function.
While our emergency dentists try everything to save your teeth, there are some instances where tooth extraction is necessary. This may be the case when your tooth is damaged, infected, or decayed beyond repair due to trauma or disease.
We evaluate each case to determine if a tooth extraction is necessary. Our tooth extraction services are designed to be gentle and help prevent complications while eliminating the source of your pain.
Broken or Lost Teeth
We know how frightening it can be if your tooth is broken or dislodged. Our dentists can do several things to save your tooth, especially if you follow our instructions to take proper care of the broken piece before your appointment.
We will try to restore as much of your natural tooth as possible, either by returning it to its socket if dislodged or by providing a restoration to make the tooth whole. If the inner tooth has been exposed, we may perform root canal therapy to prevent an infection. In the event that your tooth cannot be saved, our dentist will treat the injured area to alleviate your pain and promote healing. We will then discuss your potential options for replacing the tooth, such as a bridge or dental implant.
