Emergency Dental Care
Contact our office without delay. Our Periodontists will advise you as to the best course of action. While some concerns can wait until the following day, some must be treated immediately. In cases of injury, the steps you take in the first few minutes can affect long-term outcomes.
For instance, a tooth that has been knocked out of its socket can be re-implanted if handled properly and addressed within the first 30 minutes to an hour after the trauma.
Can I Prevent a Dental Emergency?
Some circumstances that create the need for emergency care like an injury cannot be avoided, but most unplanned care can be prevented with proper home care and regularly scheduled periodontal maintenances. Maintaining the health of your teeth and gums can greatly reduce the likelihood that you will need urgent care. Our doctors can monitor your mouth to accurately predict potential trouble areas and intervene with early treatment, keeping you healthy and happy. If you have pain or an emergency situation every attempt will be made to see you that day. Seven days a week, 24-hour emergency care is available to all patients of record. Simply call any of our offices for instructions if you need emergency care. Hauppauge Hauppauge Office Phone Number 631-265-4442 / Medford Medford Office Phone Number 631-758-3700.
