When to See an Emergency Dentist

Dental emergencies happen, and it’s important to have a trusted emergency dentist in Long Island City in your phone contacts to reach out to if and when they occur! Read on to learn about a few possible emergency situations, and how our In-House Dental Savers Plan can give you peace of mind during a dental emergency.

  1. Swelling & Pain
  2. Toothaches, persistent swelling, and/or jaw pain are not normal. We can examine your mouth and determine the root cause of your pain. For example, you may have untreated tooth decay. Or you could have an abscess. This is a pocket of pus inside your tooth caused by a bacterial infection. You may even develop a small pimple-like bubble on the outside of your gums. An abscess will not resolve on its own. Therefore, without urgent treatment, you could lose your tooth. In addition, the infection can spread to other areas of your body.

  3. Knocked-Out Adult Tooth
  4. If your adult tooth is knocked out of your mouth, you need to see us right away! The tooth’s survival depends upon it. Handle your tooth only by its crown (its top). Rinse it gently with milk or water, but do not rub or scrub it with any sort of fabric. Keep your tooth moist in a glass of milk or between your gums and cheek. We may be able to reattach your tooth if it’s preserved properly and you get to our office ASAP.

  5. Chipped, Cracked, or Broken Tooth
  6. Fractures, cracks, and breaks in teeth allow bacteria to enter the sensitive inner layer of your tooth, called the pulp. An inflamed or infected pulp will become painful and can lead to a dangerous abscess. Although a chipped tooth may only be a cosmetic fix, it could be accompanied by fracture that you can’t see. Seek treatment soon after a chip, crack, or break occurs (especially if you are experiencing pain!) to prevent more complex treatment later, like root canal therapy.

Dr. Nguyen and his staff are extremely competent, friendly and professional. He is very thorough and explains everything very clearly. Finally I feel like I am in good hands when it comes to dental care.

Great overall experience getting a dental cleaning. Very friendly staff, beautifully designed office, and a comfortable experience watching calming Netflix nature programming while in the chair. Complimentary beverages are in the waiting room and so is a little play area for kids.It felt to me that this was a patient-focused family practice as opposed to a cold, corporate dental mill trying to churn through as many patients as possible.I’ll definitely be coming back here for all my dental needs and I highly recommend.

Dr. Nguyen and his staff are very welcoming and they provide an excellent experience every time I visit. I’ve only been here twice for annual checkups but would definitely consider and recommend this place to anyone who appreciates good customer experience and a very thoughtful approach to making sure that you feel at home. I have some procedures set up for later in the month and I must actually be the only person in the world actually looking forward to a dentist appointment.

Added helpful guidelines I took home with me to reach dental hygiene goals before my next visits. Highly recommended you leave your old scary dentist ! 😁😁
