Dental emergencies do happen. Whether you’ve suffered a blow to the face while playing basketball or volleyball, or been involved in a traumatic car accident, there are many situations that may result in cracked or lost teeth. Fortunately, Manhattan Dental Care Studio is here to help. We’re on call to resolve your dental emergencies as soon as possible.
Don't Wait to
Save Your Teeth
A tooth that has been completely knocked out is called an avulsed tooth. If you act quickly enough, the tooth can be saved. Store the tooth in your mouth if possible so that your saliva can keep it moist. If this is not possible, use a glass of water. Visit the dentist as soon as possible, preferably within the hour, so that the socket can be washed out and the tooth replaced. Though the root of your tooth will reattach to your jawbone within a few weeks, the nerves and blood vessels that nourish the tooth will have been severed, so the tooth will need a root canal.
Treat Cracked or
Damaged Teeth Immediately
Cracked teeth should also be treated as soon as possible. Depending on the size and location of the fracture, your dentist may be able to seal it with a filling. Your dentist will always work to maintain your original teeth, since they are always preferable to replacements such as dentures or implants.
