Types of Common Dental Emergencies
Dental emergencies are general dental concerns that Dr. Fedida is able to treat using restorative and cosmetic treatments. If you experience any of these emergencies, here are some tips on how to proceed:
- Knocked-Out Teeth: If you have just lost a tooth and can locate it, lift it up by the crown. Place it in a glass of milk or water to keep it moisturized for transport to our office. We may be able to reattach the tooth if it is preserved. If the tooth cannot be preserved, we offer single dental implants, dental bridges, or dentures. These options create a fuller and more balanced bite for patients with one or more missing teeth.
- Toothaches: 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. You can take over-the-counter pain medication and apply a cold compress to your jaw if you have a toothache. When you visit our office, we will conduct an exam to find the cause of your pain and create a detailed treatment plan.
- Chipped tooth: If you have just chipped part of your tooth, clean the area gently with water. 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. Both of these cosmetic treatments are color-matched to blend in with the color of natural 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 crown, bridge, or denture. He may reattach the restoration or may recommend a new one. In addition, by thoroughly examining your smile, he will be able to determine the best option for you and your specific needs.
