Know what to do When a Dental Emergency Occurs

An unbearable toothache is enough to keep you up all night. And a knocked out tooth will need professional dental care right away in Emergency Dentistry Pomona, NY & Stony Point, NYorder to preserve the tooth. From minor injuries to serious emergencies, when dental problems arise, it’s important to understand how to care for your injuries until you can get to your Pomona emergency dentist, Dr. Michael Bleyzer.

Often times, a toothache is a warning sign of some other underlying dental problem, such as an infected tooth. When severe, a toothache can keep you from enjoying normal activities and even keep you up through the night. You will want to make an appointment with your dentist in Stony Point, NY right away to get to the bottom of the pain, especially if it lasts for more than a few days. Dr. Bleyzer can detect any problems and administer the appropriate treatment to ease the pain and prevent any additional damage.

You can also help ease your tooth pain before you can get to your Pomona dentist by:

  • Applying a cold compress to the side of your cheek
  • Elevating your head to reduce the pressure on the affected tooth
  • Rinsing with a mixture of salt and water to remove and food particles or debris that may be irritating your toothache.
  • Avoiding foods that intensify the pain, such as foods with extreme temperature or foods that are hard to chew

If your tooth is knocked out, try to stay calm. You will need to act quickly in order to save the tooth and have it successfully re-implanted by your Pomona emergency dentist, Dr. Bleyzer. First, gently rinse the tooth with water, being very careful not to remove any of the attached tissue. Carefully try to place the tooth back into the socket, as this is one of the best ways to preserve the tooth before you can get to Dr. Bleyzer. If this isn’t possible, gently place the tooth into a small cup of milk and take it with you to the dentist immediately.

Generally, getting to Dr. Bleyzer within one hour of having it knocked out will be its best chance of recovery. If successful re-insertion of the tooth isn’t possible, don’t worry. Advances in modern dentistry have made it possible for dentists to offer advanced restoration procedures.  

You can also avoid unnecessary dental emergencies and pain by practicing good oral hygiene and visiting your dentist in Pomono for regular check-ups. This is one of the easiest and best ways to ensure your teeth and gums are healthy, and Dr. Bleyzer can detect problems in their earliest stages to make recommendations for treatments and prevention.
