Dental emergencies are unexpected, and never fun. You may feel like panicking, but with an experienced dental team to rely on, you’ll get through it and be surprised at just how smoothly your emergency can be handled. At East Islip Dental Care, our team of doctors is caring and highly skilled. They will be able to guide you through any emergency situation you may encounter, and best of all we’re always here for you – that’s why we’re open every day! Here’s some more information on when you should see an emergency dentist in Islip.
Accidents happen, especially during sports. If you should experience an injury to your teeth or mouth, the first thing is not to panic. If your tooth has become broken or dislodged, try to save the tooth or pieces of tooth, and get to your dental office right away. It’s important to act quickly as your tooth may be able to be saved.
If you’ve experienced an injury to your oral tissue, apply a cold compress to the affected area to help control bleeding. If you’re able to rinse with a saltwater solution this will help calm the injury. Again, please contact your dentist immediately to be seen.
If you should experience sensitivity to hot, cold and sweet foods or beverage that doesn’t dissipate, you should contact your dentist as soon as possible. A constant toothache or sensitivity may indicate an infection, and unfortunately this won’t go away on its own.
It’s important again to act quickly because an infection will gradually get worse, making your pain more severe and traveling to other areas of the body. The quicker your dentist can diagnose your condition, the quicker they can get you feeling comfortable and back on the path to wellness again. It can also mean the difference between being able to save your tooth and having to extract it.
With any dental emergency remember not to panic, but to act as quickly as possible. Your team of doctors at East Islip Dental Care is here for you and waiting to help guide you through your situation. Our doctors are highly skilled and we offer a wide range of services designed to meet all of your dental needs whether you’re experiencing an emergency or just need to schedule your regular cleaning and check up.
