Emergency Dentistry Q & A

What is emergency dentistry?

Dr. Vero’s practice addresses many dental needs during routine appointments, but sometimes you can have a dental trauma that requires immediate attention. 

For example, you might:

  • Get your tooth knocked out
  • Have severe pain
  • Break, fracture, or crack your tooth
  • Experience infection
  • Have gum or facial swelling
  • Have a significantly loose, permanent tooth
  • Lose a restoration like a crown

Emergency dentistry takes care of your urgent dental needs. If you encounter a sudden issue with your teeth or gums, you can count on Dr. Vero’s office to take care of it immediately.

How does emergency dentistry work?

Your health and safety are of the most importance. If you have a life-threatening injury or a serious medical need, call 911 immediately. 

If you experience a dental emergency with injuries or damage to your teeth or gums, then call Dr. Vero’s office right away. The staff can help schedule an emergency appointment for you.

If you have a knocked-out tooth, you should act immediately. Locate the tooth and pick it up from the opposite side of its roots. If possible, place it back in its socket in your mouth. Otherwise, place it in a small cup of saliva or milk to keep the roots moist. You can also keep the tooth between your gum line and cheek until you arrive at the practice. These actions can possibly save your tooth.

Infection can also be relieved with a pain-free root canal during your emergency dentistry visit.

With any dental emergency, the sooner you can get to Dr. Vero’s office, the higher chance you have of fully repairing the damage.

What happens during an emergency dentistry appointment?

The team at Dr. Vero’s office first examines your teeth and gums to assess your damage or pain. They may use digital radiography to get accurate imaging to see the root cause of your issue. The pictures allow them to see what lies below your gum line and inside your teeth.

Once you have a diagnosis, they create a customized plan to treat your specific dental need. They go over the plan with you in detail, explaining:

  • What the treatment involves
  • How many procedures you might need
  • How long the procedures take
  • When to expect a full recovery

The team monitors you closely from your first visit until you’re fully healed. They make sure that your teeth and gums stay free from infection and that you experience a healthy outcome.

If you have a dental emergency, call the office of Fedele C. Vero, DDS and Alexei Bondarev, DDS, immediately. You can also use online booking for non-emergencies.
