Emergencies

Rochester Emergency Dentist

 

Dental emergencies can happen in an instant, leaving patients startled, frightened, and in pain. If you’re in need of help immediately, don’t hesitate to contact us. At Full Heart Dentistry, Dr. Sarah Smith strives to see patients as soon as possible – usually on the same day as their initial call.

Common dental emergencies we see include:

  • Dislodged Tooth
  • Partially Dislodged Tooth
  • Broken Tooth
  • Severe Toothache
  • Lost Crown
  • Lost Filling
  • Soft Tissue Injury
  • Cut Lip
  • Minor to Moderate Oral Bleeding

There are ways to decrease your chances of experiencing dental emergencies. Here are some common precautions:

  • If you or a loved one is participating in a sporting or physical contact activity, please wear a mouthguard to protect your teeth and jaw. Professional, custom-fitted mouthguards have even been found to help prevent concussions.
  • Don’t chew on ice.
  • Exercise caution with foods that are tough or sticky.
  • Use scissors when opening packages, not your teeth.

Most importantly, attend regular checkups and cleanings with our practice. At these visits, we can treat problems before they have a chance to become true emergencies.

If you’re experiencing severe oral bleeding that’s not subsiding or a jaw that’s seriously injured, it’s recommended that you go to your nearest emergency room. After your initial care, we can discuss a treatment plan if necessary to replace any lost or damaged teeth you suffered in the accident. Patients from Rochester, Irondequoit and surrounding areas are encouraged to call today.
