Emergency Dentistry FAQs

What should I do if I have a dental emergency?

In the case of a dental emergency call Dr. Weinstock’s office as soon as possible. Most dental concerns will become worse with time. Seeking treatment as soon as possible will allow for the most conservative and effective treatment. If you are experiencing a dire emergency dial 911.

What should I do if my crown or filling breaks or falls out?

NEVER attempt to reach your crown or filling by yourself. Do NOT glue your restoration back to your tooth. In many cases, the dental restoration is unable to be reused, however, if it is possible to find the restoration you can bring it with you to your dentist appointment. Dr. Weinstock can fabricate and fit you with a new dental restoration.

What should I do if I lose a tooth or a tooth gets knocked out?

If your tooth has been knocked out contact our dentist office immediately. If possible, retrieve the lost tooth. Hold the tooth only by the crown and try to preserve as much of the root structure as possible.

While it is okay to rinse the tooth, never scrub the tooth. Place the tooth in a cup of saliva or milk to transport it to the dentist, as recommended by the ADA. A tooth may be able to be replaced within one hour of loss. If the tooth is unable to be rescued, Dr. Weinstock offers dental procedures such as dental implants, dental bridges, and dentures to replace missing teeth.

What should I do if I am having severe tooth pain?

A common dental emergency is severe tooth pain. There is a whole range of dental concerns that cause toothaches. Tooth decay or an abscess may be the culprit.

Persistent pain should be addressed by Dr. Weinstock as soon as possible.

If you are experiencing swelling, apply a cold compress to the affected area to reduce discomfort while you wait to see the dentist.

What should I do if my denture or bridge breaks?

A broken denture or bridge can often be repaired. If possible bring the broken appliance with you to your dentist appointment. Dr. Weinstock will assess the situation and help you to determine the best treatment plan.
