WHO IS AN IDEAL CANDIDATE FOR AN EMERGENCY DENTAL TREATMENT?
Candidates for an emergency dental treatment are those who may be suffering from a sudden onset of tooth pain, have had a tooth knocked out, or experienced an accident that has caused oral trauma. Please keep in mind that if this is a true medical emergency, immediately go to your nearest emergency room or dial 911. While Dr. Koutsoyiannis is an experienced emergency dentist in NYC, he can only provide adequate treatment if you are in stable health.
WHAT SHOULD I EXPECT DURING MY EMERGENCY DENTAL TREATMENT?
The details of an emergency dental treatment vary from patient to patient. Dr. Koutsoyiannis will provide prompt medical attention to your dental emergency and efficiently create an effective treatment plan. Dr. Koutsoyiannis will always try to save a tooth during a dental emergency. If the tooth cannot be saved, our emergency dentist in NYC will attempt to treat any underlying damage. After this, Dr. Koutsoyiannis can perform an emergency tooth replacement treatment. In some cases, patients may need time to adequately heal from a dental emergency before undergoing a tooth replacement surgery.
WHAT SHOULD I EXPECT AFTER MY EMERGENCY DENTAL TREATMENT?
The length of recovery will depend on what emergency dental treatment you received. For more minor cases, recovery may be only a few days until any discomfort has dissipated. On the other hand, severe cases of tooth damage or oral trauma will require a lengthier recovery time. If any stitches were applied during an emergency dental procedure, our emergency dentist can remove them in 2-3 weeks. Dr. Koutsoyiannis and the doctors of Sohosmile® will provide detailed instructions to follow after receiving a dental emergency treatment.
