Emergency Dentistry in Poughkeepsie
At Dedicated Dental Studios, we understand that dental emergencies cause pain, discomfort, and anxiety. We reserve appointments for people with dental pain or trauma to provide immediate care and relief when you need it the most.
Dental Emergencies May Include:
Severe Toothache: Persistent and intense toothaches can indicate an underlying dental issue, such as an abscessed tooth or tooth decay. We will diagnose the cause of your toothache and provide appropriate treatment to alleviate pain.
Cracked or Broken Teeth: Whether due to trauma, biting on a hard object, or weakened dental restorations, cracked or broken teeth require immediate attention. We offer restorative treatments, such as dental bonding or dental crowns, to repair and protect damaged teeth.
Knocked-Out Tooth: If a tooth is completely knocked out, time is of the essence. Try to gently place the tooth back into its socket or store it in a container of milk or saliva. Contact us immediately, as there is a higher chance of saving the tooth if treated promptly.
Loose or Dislodged Tooth: A tooth that has been partially dislodged or pushed out of its normal position requires immediate dental care. Our dental team will assess the condition and take appropriate measures to stabilize the tooth and restore its proper alignment.
Oral Infections and Abscesses: Infections and abscesses in the mouth can cause severe pain, swelling, and fever. These conditions require immediate attention to prevent the spread of infection and potential complications. We will provide the necessary treatment, which may include antibiotics, root canal therapy, or extraction.
Dentist or ER?
During a dental emergency, it is crucial to seek professional care as soon as possible. We recommend coming to a dentist instead of going to the Emergency Room. The ER may have a dentist on call for an extraction, but they do not have access to specialized equipment like our CEREC technology for making same day crowns.
We can perform extractions, root canals, or even urgent cosmetic procedures like bonding to fix a chipped tooth. Most importantly, we can provide follow up care and monitor your healing. The ER is there for emergency pain and infection control only and will instruct you to see a dentist afterwards.
