Dr. Deyab recognizes that your dental needs are not always something you can schedule. Whether you bite down on something too hard, or experience some other unexpected trauma or discomfort, we are here for you. Your emergency dentist, Dr. Deyab, will ensure you receive the treatment you require, even after business hours.
How Do You Access Emergency Dental Services?
If you are an existing patient of the practice, Dr. Deyab and staff are on call after office hours, on weekends, and even during vacations. Please call our office immediately, so a member of our team can set up an emergency visit. The sooner we treat you, the greater our ability to correct the problem, prevent discomfort and restore the health and appearance of your smile.
What Should You Do During A Dental Emergency?
The First thing to remember is not to panic. The sight of a knocked-out tooth or damaged tooth may alarm you, but at QUANTUM DENTAL, we will ensure you receive the help you need. However, if you are experiencing a life-threatening emergency, call 911 or visit your nearest emergency room.
As for true dental emergencies that are not life threatening, we suggest taking the following steps after contacting our office:
- If you are in pain, take over-the-counter analgesics to reduce your discomfort until you see the dentist.
- If you are bleeding, press clean gauze or fabric against the affected area, or bite down on the material, to stop the bleeding.
- For food or debris lodged between your teeth, gently attempt to dislodge the object with dental floss. If this is ineffective, leave the area alone until you see Dr. Deyab to avoid causing injury.
- For a broken tooth, gather as many pieces of the tooth as you can and place them in a sealed container.
- If you have a knocked-out tooth, quickly place the tooth in an air-tight container filled with milk and do not rinse to avoid compromising the attachment tissue. If possible, gently attempt to place the tooth back in its socket. Do not use excessive force.
- Place an ice pack or cold compress on the outside of your face to reduce discomfort or swelling.
