Thank you Madison Avenue Dentists and your fantastic staff! You have a wonderful team!
WOW!! So, I did a dental search on the best Prosthodontist offices in New York City, and it gives me great joy to see my two outstanding colleagues be on the top. I had the honor of graduating with Dr. Oh and Dr. Estefan from New York University College of Dentistry. I have an Endodontic practice in upstate New York, and now I have an office that has the best quality Prosthodontist to send some of our New York City patients for dental care. Congratulations on such an outstanding achievement, you guys make our dental school so proud. xo Dr. Luz Mejia (Bailey). PS I wish I can give you guys +10 stars!!

What should I expect during my emergency dental appointment?
The requirements for care for urgent dental issues will vary for each patient.

Digital x-rays might be conducted to examine the teeth for hidden trauma, like to the bone, tooth roots, or jaw. Once we fully learn the degree of your oral condition, we will discuss your treatment needs. The main concern of an emergency evaluation is to help with tooth pain and identify damage. We do everything we can to bring back the function, appeal, and total health of your oral structures as soon as we can. Follow-up therapies in our New York, NY office could be required.

Emergency Dental Care FAQs
What is considered a dental emergency?
Dental emergencies left untreated can lead to serious complications, infection, and even permanent damage. If you experience the following, call our team as soon as you can:
- Toothaches (a mild toothache can escalate if untreated, don’t wait for it to get worse)
- Chipped or broken teeth
- Knocked-out tooth
- Partially-dislodged tooth
- Loss of a filling or crown
- Broken braces and wires
- Soft-tissue injury
Are there things I can do at home if I cannot see a dentist immediately?
Absolutely, and most of it involves items you already have in your home. If you are experiencing tooth pain or swelling, use dental floss to dislodge any interlopers and then put a cold compress outside of your mouth. Lost or broke a tooth? Collect the pieces or whole tooth and rinse in warm water. Don’t touch the root of your tooth while rinsing it. Place the tooth in a container of milk. If your teeth or gums are bleeding, apply pressure with clean, dry gauze until the bleeding stops.
Will I have to get a cap or use my real tooth if my tooth gets knocked out?
If you can clean the tooth, keep it in milk, and get in to see Madison Avenue Dentists as soon as possible, you are more likely to have a successful reattachment. If you break or chip a tooth, we will repair the damage with a filling or bonding. However, our dentists may recommend a dental cap or crown if the break is severe or if there is significant decay.
