At the office of Elliott Gutman, DMD, we are available weekends, evenings, and holidays, and we will prioritize your dental emergency in our schedule to make sure you are seen the same day you call.
When your teeth are in pain, you want a solution fast. We understand that and we will work swiftly to make sure your mouth is back to normal as soon as possible. Signs of a dental emergency may include missing or knocked out teeth, toothache, jaw pain, persistent oral bleeding, sore and swollen gums, broken jaw, mouth injury, a missing or broken dental crown, as well as if a tooth becomes cracked, chipped, or broken. Injury to the gums or teeth can be very painful. At times, you may have dental pain and not know why. For example, sudden pain may be caused by pieces of food that come in contact with a decayed area of the tooth. Food, heat or cold may create pressure near the nerve and cause pain. The nerve inside the tooth also may be exposed if you lose a filling or crown. If your tooth is broken, try to save the pieces of the affected tooth so our Inwood emergency dentist can assess what happened and how best to fix the tooth. It is important to receive toothache treatment as soon as possible as dental trauma can become more serious as time passes. Accidents can’t be avoided, but preventative care of your teeth is always encouraged. Be sure to brush and floss regularly, in addition to getting regular dental check-ups. If you play sports, wear a mouth guard to ensure the safety of your teeth. We can provide instant treatment for your dental emergency, as well as long-term solutions to remedy cracked, damaged or missing teeth. We are skilled in the art of both cosmetic and restorative dentistry.
