Dr. Sheldon Kupferman wants you to have the knowledge you need to know what to do in a dental emergency situation. We provide some information below, but if you ever find yourself needing immediate dental care, please call our dentist and team at Riverdale Dental Arts right away. We are pleased to provide dental emergency care in The Bronx, New York, and we are dedicated to doing all we can to help your smile stay healthy.
A dental emergency is a situation that requires prompt attention from a dental professional. At our office, we understand that you cannot always plan when you will need our care. If you experience a dental emergency, we encourage you to contact us as soon as possible. Our team will schedule you to meet with our dentist as soon as we are able so you can receive the care you need. We are happy to care for several types of dental emergencies, including:
- Severe, lasting toothaches or other types of tooth pain
- A lost dental restoration, such as a lost filling or crown
- Damage to the soft tissues of the mouth, including the tongue, cheeks, lips and gums
- A cracked or fractured tooth
- A chipped or broken tooth
- A partially or fully knocked-out tooth
If you suffer from one of these conditions or another type of dental emergency, please contact our office. Our team will also be able to provide you with instructions on how to take care of your smile until you are able to come to our office to meet with us. If you have experienced trauma to the head or neck, we recommend that you visit the emergency room or your general physician before coming to us, even if your smile is also damaged. To learn more about dental emergency care, we invite you to call or visit us today.
