Dental Emergencies

Whether you are an existing patient or a new patient, you are welcome to contact us at (516) 481-1446 if you are experiencing a dental emergency.

Someone will either answer the call, or call you back immediately to provide the necessary instructions and schedule an appointment as quickly as possible. We can even call in a prescription when pain or infection is the culprit.

Below are a few helpful tips to remember for common dental emergencies.
  • Franklin Square, Toothache
    Toothache

    Prolonged tooth pain that lasts longer than two days is usually an indicator that there is a cavity or infection present. It can also be a sign of a cracked or chipped tooth. Pain may radiate across the face, or range from throbbing, shooting, or a dull ache. Because a cavity can quickly progress into something more serious, you should schedule an appointment with Dr. Novick immediately. Taking an over-the-counter pain reliever or rinsing with warm saltwater may help lessen discomfort while waiting to be seen.

  • Franklin Square, Broken Tooth
    Broken or Knocked-Out Tooth

    When the entire tooth is knocked out, pick it up by the crown (top of the tooth) and rinse it with warm water. Try reinserting it into the socket and gently bite down. If the tooth is unable to be inserted, or is broken off, place the tooth or any fragments in a container of saltwater, saliva, or milk and contact our office immediately. If pain or swelling is present, take an over-the-counter pain reliever and apply an ice pack on the outer jaw in 15-minute intervals. Be sure and bring the container with you to the appointment.

  • Franklin Square, Lodged Food
    Lodged Food Between Teeth

    Certain foods, such as popcorn kernels, chips, and apple skins can get stuck between teeth or under the gum line and cause discomfort. If you are unable to dislodge the trapped food with dental floss, contact our office immediately to schedule an appointment. Do not try and use anything other than dental floss to dislodged the object or it could damage your teeth and gums.

  • Franklin Square, Jaw Pain
    Jaw Pain

    Jaw pain can result from injury, severe tooth decay, or even untreated TMJ disorder. If your pain has lasted longer than two or three days, or you were injured while playing sports, please contact our office immediately. Dr. Novick will perform the necessary x-rays to locate the source of your discomfort. While waiting for your appointment, you can apply an ice pack to your jaw and take an over-the-counter pain reliever to help minimize swelling and discomfort,

  • Franklin Square, Damaged Dental Work
    Damaged Dental Work

    Dental work, such as a filling, crown, or bridge may crack, loosen, or completely fall out. When this happens, please call our office right away. Be sure and save the restoration or any broken pieces and bring them with you to the appointment.

I always hated going to the dentist and would skip years at a time but once I started going to Dr Novick that hatred faded off. It may sound corny but Dr Novick gave me my smile. I trust his opinion and take his advice on what he recommendeds for my oral health. His staff is wonderful. Everyone is friendly and makes you feel comfortable.

Dr. Novick goes the extra mile to ensure I have the best possible outcome. Because of this my teeth are in great shape. His hygienist who did my teeth cleaning has the same great attitude.
