If you or a loved one is experiencing a dental emergency, it’s important to stay as calm as possible. Time is often of the essence in these situations, so don’t wait – contact Garden City Dentistry to schedule an appointment with our staff. We will do everything we can to see you on the same day as your call, and instructions can be provided over the phone for how to stabilize your condition until you’re able to reach us and Dr. Peter Vastardis can provide the relief you need.
Are you unsure of what actually constitutes a dental emergency? Here are some common situations that our team would consider urgent in nature:
Partially Dislodged Tooth
Fully Dislodged Tooth
Soft Tissue Injury
Object Stuck Between Teeth
Why Maintaining Good Oral Health Is Important
Attending regular check-ups and cleanings with a trusted dental practice like ours is one of the most effective ways to prevent dental emergencies. During these visits, Dr. Vastardis can locate potential concerns and provide treatment early on, eliminating the need for more severe intervention later on. While emergencies are never avoidable, patients can also reduce their risk by wearing athletic sportsguards when appropriate and avoiding particularly tough or sticky foods.
