Michael I. Feinburg is an emergency dentist 11219 who can provide patients with emergency care for both avulsed and dislodged teeth. Dislodged teeth are teeth that have been knocked out of the mouth. We can reposition the tooth and keep it healthy. If the tooth is healthy, no other treatment is necessary, but if the tooth is damaged inside, a root canal may be required.
Patients with toothaches or who have had a tooth knocked out should call our emergency dentist 11219 immediately because time is of the essence. Toothaches also can signal an emergency. The toothache may cause pain around the tooth or gums or jaws and can be caused by something like a cavity or cracked or broken tooth. Sometimes an exposed tooth root can cause severe toothaches as well. A dental emergency can also mean a tooth has been dislodged from the mouth or pushed back into the socket. If this is the case, we may need to reposition the tooth.
Gum disease is a common ailment as well that is treated by our emergency dentist 11219 and afflicts thousands of Americans each year, which is why an important part of daily oral care is maintaining a healthy mouth as well as a proper teeth cleaning and brushing. A teeth cleaning procedure will help dislodge debris and other food particles that can get trapped in between teeth and gums, creating bacteria that can cause cavities and gingivitis. Maintaining healthy gums starts with proper brushing and flossing. Brushing at least twice a day, flossing and having annual cleanings is the best way to remove food that can cause bacteria. Bacteria causes plaque and buildup on the teeth. The bacteria eats away at tooth enamel, which can create cavities and gum disease.
