Emergency Periodontal Care
When you are suffering from severe pain or have sustained an injury, you need emergency care and the skilled doctors at Madison Avenue Periodontics are here to help. We often remind our patients that a condition will only worsen if treatment is postponed, creating the need for more extensive dental work in the future. This is certainly true of emergency care, as well. That’s why our doctors remain on call for you after regular business hours draw to a close.
Our regular office hours are Monday-Friday from 8:00am to 4:30pm but if you’re experiencing an emergency call and we’ll do our best to see you as soon as possible.
What Constitutes An Emergency?
If you’re experiencing pain, please call us immediately and we will do our best to get you in for an appointment as soon as possible.
- Chipped or fractured teeth
- A knocked out tooth
- Severe or constant pain and pressure
- Injury to any part of your face, mouth, or jaw
What To Do If You Have An Emergency
Contact our office without delay. Our periodontists will advise you as to the best course of action. While some concerns may be able to wait until the following day, some must be treated immediately. With cases of injury, the steps you take in the first few minutes can affect long-term outcomes. A tooth that has been knocked out of its socket, for example, can be re-implanted if handled properly and addressed within the first 30 minutes to an hour after the trauma.
Preventing The Need For Emergency Care
Some circumstances that create the need for emergency care, like injury, cannot be avoided, but most unplanned care can be prevented with proper home care and regularly scheduled periodontal maintenance. 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.
