Just arrived in New York City and I have a dental emergency

You may have planned your trip to New York City for months. You probably have plans to catch that Broadway musical or explore the streets of NYC. Perhaps you’re here to sign an important deal for your company. Whether you’re here for business or pleasure, it’s likely that you didn’t plan on a visit to the emergency dental clinic; NYC dentists are great but it’s not at the top of the travel bucket list.

An unplanned dental emergency can reek havoc on your plans.  Dental emergencies can cause debilitating pain or cosmetic issues if your front teeth are affected by a chip, fracture, or a lost veneer.  Common dental emergencies include: 

  • A lost or broken veneer or crown
  • A fractured tooth 
  • Gum swelling and inflammation
  • A severe Toothache
  • A lost filling or crown
  • A tooth infection or pain
  • Tooth trauma resulting from an accident.

If confronted with one of these urgent problems, it’s usually best to visit an emergency dental clinic. NYC has plenty of excellent professionals who have the experience needed to help treat such problems.

Emergency Tooth Pain

Tooth pain is a quick way to bring your sightseeing plans in the Big Apple to a grinding halt. This kind of severe discomfort can be caused by many reasons. Maybe the flight caused a root canal to flare up. It’s also possible for a wisdom tooth all of a sudden to get infected. Or perhaps a cavity could now be making itself known with a dull ache. Our dental office can help resolve all of these uncomfortable issues as we also function as a dental emergency clinic; NYC teeth are safe in our hands. Our emergency tooth specialist can help you get out of pain today with same-day procedures like a porcelain crown, white filling, a painless root canal, and even an extraction.

Our team is trained to get you in and out quickly so you can continue with your day. Don’t let a trip to the emergency dental clinic (NYC or otherwise) interrupt your trip.  Simply schedule a visit to Smile Arts of New York for a quick and easy assessment of your dental emergency.

Lost A Filling or Crown?

Fillings and crowns are made to last for several years, but we put our gnashers through a lot and these kinds of restorations may weaken over time. Dislodging a crown mostly happens during eating; imagine you’re chewing on a delicious toffee and then suddenly you feel something hard in your mouth. A loose filling or cap is not a cause for panic and the emergency dental clinic. NYC dentists recommend retrieving the restoration, if possible so that they can refit it. 

Whether you find the crown or not, you’ll need to book an appointment with your oral professional so they can arrange for the original or a new crown to be fitted as soon as possible.

Tooth Abscess

There’s no question that toothache is one of the worst pains to experience and if it flares up during a trip, it can ruin a holiday. Although mild pain can be kept at bay with drugstore painkillers until you can book an appointment, a severe toothache can be a sign of infection and something more serious. The most common cause for this issue is tooth decay but it can also be caused by trauma-induced damage such as a broken tooth or dislodged restoration. 

If you’re experiencing symptoms such as swelling, raised temperature, and pain to the point that painkillers stop working, then it’s time to contact an emergency dental clinic. NYC has a wealth of excellent offices that will be able to offer you the treatment you need to resolve the problem. If you have an infection, the pain is likely to be caused by an abscess and the dentist will then drain it under a local anaesthetic. Usually, if the infection is bad, you will be prescribed a course of antibiotics as well.

A fractured tooth, crown or Veneer

A broken tooth can vary from a small chip to something more severe such as a broken root, splitting or being completely knocked out. The severity of the damage will determine whether or not you should book an appointment at an emergency dental clinic. NYC dentists will then examine the problem carefully and advise you on the best next steps.

If your tooth is knocked out completely, be sure to rinse the mouth with warm salted water and apply pressure to the wound to slow the bleeding. It’s also important to preserve your tooth in milk or saltwater in preparation for your appointment. 

Depending on the injury, the treatment may be simply repairing a crown, gluing the fragment back on, or more seriously, a root canal.

Repairing a Broken Tooth with a Porcelain Crown

A broken tooth can ruin your confidence as well as your day, but it might not need a visit to the emergency dental clinic. NYC dentists will be able to book you in for a regular appointment to fix the appearance of your broken smile and a porcelain crown is one of the most effective solutions.

A crown is a type of restoration that will protect the tooth from further damage and infection, while also improving its appearance. Once your dentist has assessed that you’re the right candidate for this treatment they will begin the restoration process. This will involve cleaning the remaining tooth and making impressions to build your new cap or crown. This is a great option for bad breakages as it will reinforce the strength of the natural tooth.

We understand that a trip to the dentist can be stressful and cause anxiety for some people, especially when visiting an emergency dental clinic. NYC patients trust us to provide them with top-quality care and often remark on our caring and gentle approach. Our goal is not only to offer the best dental care available but to ensure that you feel safe and confident in our hands.

We offer emergency appointments seven days a week so if you find yourself in pain, feel free to book an appointment online or Call (212) 537-6923 to get out of pain as soon as possible.
