Emergency Dentistry in SoHo
If you’re bleeding, experiencing severe pain, or have lost a tooth or tooth replacement, you may need same-day dental care. We offer emergency dentistry services at Greene Street Dental. We are better prepared to assist you than the emergency room, as we can diagnose your condition, offer pain management solutions, and treat the problem in one visit. We hope you’ll consider our expert dentists for urgent dental care in Lower Manhattan.
How Do You Know You Need an Emergency Dentist?
It can be hard to tell if you’re experiencing a dental emergency, especially if you’ve already been putting off treatment for that sore, throbbing tooth for a long time. It won’t hurt to call and ask our office if you should come in for an emergency appointment, but there are a few common signs and symptoms to look out for.
Don’t wait to see an emergency dentist if you’re experiencing any of the following:
- Severe tooth pain
- Pain that migrates to other parts of the jaw or face
- Extreme sensitivity to hot and cold
- Swelling in the cheek or jaw
- Tooth pain accompanied by nausea or fever
- Bleeding that doesn’t stop
- Knocked out tooth
- Badly cracked, chipped, or broken tooth
- Lost or broken dental restoration
- Something lodged in your tooth or gums
- Jaw or face pain after an injury or impact
In these situations, your health and the lifespan of your teeth could be in danger. We offer same-day treatment for all of these conditions.
In some cases, it’s not a good idea to wait until you can get on the schedule to see a dentist. Unfortunately, some dental offices don’t offer same-day services. If your usual dentist can’t get you in the same day, is it worth it to go to an emergency dentist? Usually, the answer is yes. Even better, choose a general dentist’s office that also offers emergency care, so someone who is familiar with your health and pre-existing conditions can make well-informed decisions about your treatment.
Our same-day dentistry procedures include:
- Root canals
- Replacement fillings and crowns
- Tooth extraction
- Oral surgery
- Root extraction
- Antibiotic treatment for aggressive infections
- Pain management, including laser therapy and medication
- First aid after an injury or trauma
We may perform other same-day procedures depending on your unique situation.
Infected Tooth Extractions
One of the most common reasons for an emergency visit is an infected tooth. Infected teeth can progress into dental abscesses, or large, swollen bumps on the gums. In either case, an infected tooth is considered a dental emergency because that infection can spread to other areas of the body. In rare cases, this spreading infection can cause sepsis, a potentially life-threatening condition.
If you’re experiencing any of the symptoms of an infected tooth (such as an abscess or severe tooth pain), visit our same-day dentist for an emergency tooth extraction. If your tooth can be saved, we may conduct a root canal or another restorative procedure.
