Emergency Dental Care in Brooklyn, NY

Dental Emergencies Can Happen to Anyone

A dental emergency can be extremely stressful. Whether you chip or damage a tooth, wake up with a terrible toothache, or have another urgent matter, we know you’ll want to resolve the issue as soon as possible. And if the dental issue is happening to someone you love, it’s hard not to feel scared or helpless. 

Dental emergencies occur when a patient has dental trauma, pain, or an infection that can’t wait for a regular appointment.—and they can happen to anyone. Our dentist, Dr. Aimee Kraft, offers prompt, effective emergency treatment to patients of all ages. If you are experiencing a dental emergency in Brooklyn, please call our team right away so that we can prepare for your arrival. 

What is Emergency Dentistry?

Emergency dentistry refers to any dental procedure that is urgent and unplanned. An emergency dentist is an oral healthcare professional that treats patients who need immediate care. Many emergency dentists strive to see the patient within 24 hours to protect their oral health and help them get out of pain as soon as possible. 

No matter how good your dental health is, sometimes emergencies can happen. Not every dentist is able to provide these emergency services, however. Fortunately, you don’t have to be a regular patient of Dr. Kraft for her to treat your urgent needs. 

Common Dental Emergencies and Procedures

Are you wondering what constitutes a dental emergency? Typically, this means anything requiring fast action to address pain, discomfort, or trauma to the mouth. The most common dental emergencies we see include: 

  • Facial Swelling
  • Severe jaw pain or toothaches
  • Knocked out teeth
  • Chipped or broken teeth
  • Damaged dentures
  • Damaged veneers
  • Damaged dental implants
  • Broken crowns or bridges
  • Loose teeth
  • Chronic discoloration or rough patches in your mouth

Our Brooklyn office is not open seven days a week, so Dr. Kraft may not be able to see you immediately. However, if you call our office at (718) 625-6629 and explain your situation, our team will get you an appointment as soon as we possibly can. 

How to Tell if You Have a Dental Emergency

Waking up with a toothache or pain in the mouth isn’t fun. But how do you know if what you’re feeling constitutes emergency dental care? Ask yourself the following questions:

  • Are you in severe pain? Severe pain is the top sign of a dental emergency. 
  • Have you lost a tooth? If you lose a tooth to trauma, you should contact an emergency dentist right away. Fast treatment can potentially save your tooth.
  • Do you have an abscess or a severe infection? A serious infection in your mouth can be potentially life-threatening, so you’ll want to seek treatment immediately.
  • Are you bleeding from your mouth? This is a potential sign of an emergency, especially if it’s from trauma. 

You know your body better than anyone else, so if you’re experiencing signs of dental trauma, call our Brooklyn dental office right away.

Dr. Kraft always try to see patients with dental emergencies on the same day. However, if a same-day appointment isn’t available, Dr. Kraft will see you as soon as she can. She will also provide self-care instructions you can use to deal with the issue while you wait for your appointment.

How can patients prevent emergency situations?

Some dental emergencies are unavoidable; however, you may be able to reduce the risk of emergency situations. Brush and floss your teeth daily, and always keep your cleaning and checkup appointments with Dr. Kraft. If you participate in high-impact sports or other activities that put your teeth at risk, wear an appropriate mouth guard for protection. In addition, you should also avoid any activities that put too much stress on your teeth, such as using them as a tool to open things. Also, don’t chew hard candies and ice as they can cause damage.
