Emergency Dental Care
Dental emergencies in Yonkers are an unfortunate part of life. Dental pain doesn’t always just affect the teeth but can radiate to the jaws, sinuses and/or ears as well. Receiving treatment is absolutely necessary at this critical point, and Ibuprofen and Acetaminophen are helpful for a short while. Most emergency rooms are not equipped to handle dental emergencies. They may give you medicine to manage pain and possibly antibiotics if they suspect infection, but they cannot do more than that. You will leave the emergency room with a referral to see your dentist in Yonkers.
If you are experiencing pain, Yonkers Avenue Dental can treat emergencies. Some emergency dental services we offer include: emergency exam and xrays, tooth extraction, deep gum cleanings, wisdom tooth evaluation, and root canal treatment in Yonkers. Call our office and we can get you an appointment quickly and work on not only a way to manage your discomfort and pain but also, design a plan to fix the dental problem so that you can avoid future pain.
Common Dental Emergencies
Sudden tooth pain is unwelcome pain which should not be ignored. Many conditions can cause sudden tooth pain including, but not limited to:
- Cavities that have penetrated deep into the tooth.
- Fillings that have broken or fallen out.
- An impacted tooth
- Exposed roots of teeth
- An abscessed tooth ( an infected tooth)
- Chipped or fractured teeth
- Lost teeth – as a result of sports injury or motor vehicle accidents
- Advanced gum disease
These conditions and others should be treated promptly to prevent further tooth damage and possibly spreading infection to surrounding teeth, sinuses or jaw bones. Throbbing pain and swelling of your face and/or jaw bones is a very urgent matter. Please be advised that calling our emergency dentist in Yonkers, Dr. Rajani, for treatment is imperative. Dr. Rajani can help get you out of pain and fix your dental emergency so that you can be once again in a state of excellent oral health.
