Dental practice near Northeast Philadelphia provides various services when an emergency strikes

An emergency is like lightning striking. You never know when or where it will happen. Dental emergencies can strike at anytime and anywhere, affecting the teeth, mouth, gums, jawbone, or soft tissues. Knowing how to respond to an emergency can help eliminate the urge to panic. Rest assured the dental team at David Spilkia Family and Cosmetic Dentistry near Northeast Philadelphia takes good care of you from the time you first call us. Regardless of the dental emergency, Dr. David Spilkia and our team provide various services when one occurs. To ease nerves, we will explain how to handle the following emergencies until you arrive at our office where you can count on gentle care.

Emergency Dental Services Philadelphia PA
  • Toothaches – Tooth decay, trauma, or infection can cause a toothache. If you experience swelling, place an ice pack on your cheek.
  • Dental crown falls off – Apply clove oil to a cotton swab and place it on the affected area to relieve pain, if needed. Then, apply a denture adhesive onto the inner surface of the crown. If you can, gently slip the crown onto the tooth.
  • Broken tooth – If there is bleeding, apply a gauze pad to the affected area for about 10 minutes. To reduce swelling, place an ice pack on the outside of the mouth.
  • Mouth trauma – A blow to the face may result in a knocked out tooth. The chance of saving a tooth is highest within the first hour of injury, so call us immediately. Do not remove any tissue fragments, and rinse the tooth gently with water. Place the tooth in a container of milk and bring it to your appointment.

Most importantly, do not panic and keep our number with you at all times – (267) 463-2777. During our off hours, we have an answering service available to assist you. Depending on the severity of the emergency, we may suggest you visit the local emergency room for assistance.

At David Spilkia Family and Cosmetic Dentistry, our friendly and caring team will gladly help current and new patients any time an emergency strikes. Day or night, please do not hesitate to call us.
