Emergency Dentistry Q&A

What is emergency dentistry?

Emergency dentistry includes oral health care services available during same-day or walk-in visits. You may need emergency dental services if you suffer from:

  • Severe tooth decay
  • Tooth pain
  • Tooth discoloration
  • Hot or cold sensitivity
  • Loose permanent teeth 
  • Knocked-out permanent teeth
  • Chipped tooth
  • Cracked tooth
  • Broken tooth
  • Damaged or missing restoration
  • Bleeding
  • Pus in your gum line
  • Soft tissue lacerations

Contact Dr. Zeines if you have a need for immediate dental care; he makes time for dental emergencies to ensure you’re taken care of.

What should I do during a dental emergency?

It’s important to stay calm during a dental emergency. If your tooth gets broken or falls out, save the tooth and bring it with you to see Dr. Zeines. 

Keep a knocked-out tooth in saliva, in milk, in its socket, or between your teeth and gums. Ice your teeth, gums, or mouth if you experience pain or swelling and put pressure on any bleeding.

What does emergency dentistry involve?

During emergency dental visits with Dr. Zeines, he first relieves any pain you may have. He examines your teeth, gums, and mouth, reviews your symptoms with you, and takes dental X-rays if needed.

Dr. Zeines also may use kinesiological testing and tongue assessments as a natural way of evaluating your oral health and wellness. 

Which emergency dentistry services are available?

After determining which emergency dental treatment is best for you, Dr. Zeines could recommend:

Dental fillings

Dr. Zeines removes tooth decay and offers tooth-colored fillings to restore and strengthen your tooth. The fillings also prevent future decay.

Crowns

Dr. Zeines places crowns (tooth-like caps) over a damaged or decaying tooth after he cleans the tooth.

Bridges

Bridges fill in gaps left by missing permanent teeth to give you a full set of teeth and restore your gorgeous smile. 

Root canals

A root canal is a restorative dental procedure in which Dr. Zeines cleans out the inside of an infected or severely decayed tooth. He then fills it with dental materials and covers the tooth with a filling or crown.

Soft tissue repair

Dr. Zeines can repair tissues in your mouth after lacerations, punctures, or other soft tissue injuries.

If you experience tooth or gum trauma and need emergency dentistry, make a same-day appointment at the office of Victor Zeines, DDS, by phone or online.
