What should I do if I need emergency dentistry?

What types of oral health problems does emergency dentistry treat?

At Trump Village Dental, Dr. Ripa  uses emergency dentistry to treat various oral health problems, including:

  • Knocked-out teeth
  • Severe toothaches
  • Loose teeth
  • Dental abscesses (e.g., swelling and facial pain)
  • Lost or broken dental restorations
  • Damaged orthodontic appliances

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.

What happens during an emergency dentistry visit?

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:

Emergency extractions

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.

Root canal therapy

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.

Dental crown

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.

How can I protect my teeth and gums?

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.
