At Trump Village Dental, Dr. Ripa uses emergency dentistry to treat various oral health problems, including:
You might benefit from emergency dentistry if you suffer a severe soft-tissue injury, like a busted lip or a tongue cut that won't stop bleeding.
Dr. Ripa reviews your dental records and asks about your symptoms, including when they started and what they feel like. He then completes an oral exam and orders digital X-rays, capturing cross-sectional photos of your teeth, gums, and jaw.
Depending on your needs, he might recommend:
Dr. Ripa might recommend an emergency extraction if you bite down on something hard and severely break a tooth. Pulling the tooth can reduce your risk of infection and prevent damage to your healthy surrounding teeth.
Dr. Ripa performs root canal therapy if you have infected or inflamed tooth pulp.
Root canal therapy removes the infected or inflamed pulp from the center of your tooth. This stops the pain, eliminates the infection, and prevents the need for an extraction.
You might need a dental crown if you have a cavity that can’t be fixed with a filling. Trump Village Dental has a CEREC machine onsite that mills same-day crowns from zirconia and porcelain.
Practicing good oral hygiene is the easiest way to protect your teeth and gums. Dr. Ripa recommends brushing your teeth twice daily, flossing regularly, and visiting Trump Village Dental twice annually for professional teeth cleaning.
To reduce the risk of damage, wear a mouthguard when playing sports and avoid bad habits such as nail biting and chewing on ice cubes.
