Painless Solutions for Unexpected Dental Emergencies

A dental emergency is a sudden problem that needs urgent dental care. Common causes of dental emergencies include:

  • Sports: Hits to the face from sports equipment or other players can break or knock out a tooth. We recommend a custom sports mouthguard to lessen the risk of dental injuries.
  • Car Accidents: Facial and dental injuries from a sudden stop or collision are common. Like sports injuries, you can injure your teeth and soft tissues. However, if you have extensive physical injuries, visit a hospital before our dentist office.
  • Bad Habits: If you bite your nails, chew on ice, or use teeth as tools, you’re more likely to chip or break a tooth.
  • Poor Oral Health: Dental cavities, gum disease, and abscesses are common problems you can face if you do not brush or floss enough. These infections can cause extreme tooth pain.

We provide emergency dentistry services in Jackson Heights, NY, to restore your mouth’s appearance, comfort, and function.

Types of Common Dental Emergencies

Dental emergencies are general dental concerns that Dr. Fedida can treat using restorative and cosmetic treatments. The following are some of the common dental emergencies we can address at Fedida Family Dentistry and Dental Spa. Here are some tips on how to proceed so that you can get back to your normal life as soon as possible.

Knocked-Out Teeth

If you have just lost a tooth and can locate it, lift it up by the crown. Then, place it in a glass of saliva to keep it moisturized for transport to our office. We may be able to reattach the tooth if you can properly preserve it.

If you cannot preserve the tooth, we can replace it with a single dental implant, or a dental bridge. These options create a fuller and more balanced bite for patients with one or more missing teeth.


Cavities, tooth decay, and gum disease can cause toothaches due to irritation and buildup on and around the teeth. Cracked, chipped, or impacted teeth may also cause pain. A dental abscess is a pocket of pus that is often located outside of the tooth near the tooth. Bacterial infection or injury can create this abscess, which in turn leads to tooth pain.

If you have a toothache, you can take over-the-counter pain medication and apply a cold compress to your jaw. When you visit our office, we will conduct an exam to find the cause of your pain and create a detailed treatment plan.

Our office will recommend the best treatment to relieve your tooth pain based on the extent of your injury or infection. We may perform a root canal, drain an abscess, or remove and replace your problem tooth.

Fractured Tooth

Clean the area gently with water if you have just fractured your tooth. Take a pain reliever and apply a cold compress on the outside of the mouth. Do not place anything on the damaged area of the tooth.

We can provide dental bonding or porcelain veneers to repair your chipped tooth. We can also color-match both of these cosmetic treatments so it blends in with the color of your real teeth.

Broken Dental Restoration

Please schedule an appointment with us and bring the broken appliance if it can be located. Dr. Fedida will help you to determine the best treatment plan for replacing your tooth crown, bridge, or denture. He may reattach the restoration or may recommend a new one.

In addition, by thoroughly examining your smile, he can determine the best option for you and your specific needs.

What is Not A Dental Emergency?

Emergency dentistry care in our Jackson Heights, NY, office provides immediate treatment. However, some dental problems may need an appointment but not emergency treamtent.

  • Broken braces wire: If you break or bend a braces wire, use a small ball of wax to place the wire back in place. Then, contact your orthodontist to make an appointment. This problem is a quick and easy fix.
  • Mild toothache: If you have a dull toothache, you do not need immediate dental care. Take pain medication at home and use a cold compress when needed. Then, schedule an appointment and tell us your specific symptoms so we can find the source of your pain.
  • Small tooth chip: You do not need emergency treatment if you have a minor tooth chip that does not expose the inside of your tooth. Schedule a visit in our office so we can provide dental bonding at a later date.

When to Visit the Hospital

Physical injuries, including concussions and severe bleeding, require medical care. If you are in an accident, you must visit a hospital first. Then, once you are physically healthy, we can treat your dental problems.

However, if you have tooth pain, a damaged tooth, or tooth loss, contact our dental office. Doctors cannot restore, repair, or otherwise treat your dental emergency.

Schedule a Dental Consultation

If you do not have a dental emergency, you can schedule routine dental visits online or call us at 929-552-6315 during open hours. Please let us know your concerns about your specific symptoms.
