If you cannot get to an emergency dentist in the Bronx immediately then here are some helpful tips how to deal with a dental emergency until you get to see an emergency dentist that will alleviate the problem.
If you have sore gums or swelling in the jaw then you must see your dentist immediately as gum pain is usually a sign of a dental abcess either in the gums or the root of your tooth and could be a sign that you will need a root canal. Your gums can swell for many reasons but the only way to find out exactly what is wrong is to get a dentist to look at it as soon as possible.
If you have a dental abcess that ruptures then you may experience an unpleasant tasting liquid in your mouth combined with a foul smell. Rinse your mouth out with warm salty water.
If you still have persistent pain then call to see an emergency dentist at 718-365-8660. Dr. David Pinkhasov or Dr. Violeta Skevas will make time for your dental emergency in their schedule.
Chipped or broken tooth.
If you have a chipped or broken tooth then it may be possible to re-attach the broken pieces of your tooth, however only your dentist will be able to tell you if this is possible. You can then apply gauze to the affected area where it is bleeding. Keep firm intermittent pressure to stop the bleeding. If you can find the chipped or broken pieces of your tooth right then keep them in a small container with some of your saliva.
Once the bleeding has stopped you can apply a cold compress to the affected area that will minimize the swelling. If after 10 minutes of constant, firm pressure it still continues to bleed see your dentist or immediately go to the emergency room.
If you have a chipped or broken tooth it is important to see an emergency dentist ASAP. The more time you wait the higher are the chances we will not be able to save your tooth. For an emergency dentist call 718-365-8660. We will make time for your dental emergency in our schedule.
Object caught between your teeth.
If you have a foreign object stuck between your teeth then first thing is to stay calm. Do not use sharp tools to try to dislodge it in case you injure your gums or damage tooth enamel. Use wax coated dental floss. This will allow the floss to move between your teeth and around the object. Be careful when moving it around the teeth. If you are still unable to move it then it is time to see an emergency dentist in the Bronx.

Knocked out adult tooth. (Avulsed tooth)
If you have been unfortunate enough to have knocked out an adult tooth then you have a 1-2 hour window to save the tooth. This means that by getting to an Emergency Dentist in the Bronx immediately you are increasing the chances for being able to re-implant the tooth and only the dentist will be able to tell you if it can be saved.
Keep the pieces of the tooth and gently rinse them with warm water.
You must then place the pieces into a small container. You can then cover them with milk or water with a pinch of salt. You can also use saliva from the injured person.
If you have lost a filling or a crown
If your filling or crown has been knocked out or if it has been lost then you can relieve pain by preventing it from coming into contact with the air. You can use clove oil (you can get this in a local pharmacy) or you can dip a cotton swab and then apply it to the affected tooth.
If you happen to have found your filling you put it in a safe place and then take with you schedule an appointment to see your dentist.
To reduce any pain and alleviate any discomfort you can fill the hole in your tooth with either tooth wax or cement (this is available at your local pharmacy). You must not use any household adhesives in your mouth.
If you found the missing crown then you can temporarily replace it yourself using bonding cement that you can find at the dentist. Use a small amount and this should hold you until you schedule an appointment to see your dentist.
If you have injured have lost a filling or a crown this is actually a dental emergency and is not something that should be left alone as it can become infected.
