Dental Emergencies Happen – We’ll Be There for You!
“Dr. Mike” Cerminaro will be there to provide you the help you need in a dental emergency and relief from the considerable pain your dental emergency is more than likely causing. There are numerous ways in which a dental emergency can occur, such as a root canal problem or cracked tooth. Dental trauma, whether by attack or accident, puts you at risk for not only a tremendous amount of oral pain, but also infection. You may also experience a lot of soft tissue injury, such as scrapes or cuts, which can also cause unwanted bleeding problems. You will need to be seen by a competent emergency dental provider as soon as possible.
Calling your Muskegon area dentist, Dr. Mike Cerminaro, is the first step for any dental emergency. A tooth fracture, for example, may be a mild to severe problem, and sometimes a tooth cannot be restored, but prompt evaluation by your experienced emergency dentist is key to optimizing your solution. Restorative dentistry, practiced by the experienced hands of Dr. Mike, is essential to a successful restoration.
If your tooth is knocked out, time matters! How you handle a tooth is also important, as the tooth should be handled from the top, not the root end, to avoid damage to cells that aid in re-attaching the tooth to the bone. Rinse the tooth if possible, but avoid any scrubbing. Either place the tooth gently in its socket to keep moist until you can get to the dentist, wrap the tooth in moist gauze or soak it in saline, such as the kind used for contact lenses.
If your tooth is knocked loose, see your dentist immediately for the critical assessment needed to ensure the tooth is properly re-aligned. Never force the tooth into its place, as that creates more trauma to a (now) fragile tooth socket. If you have any bleeding, treatment may be needed to stop the bleeding. Whatever your emergent dental need, to optimize successful treatment & relief, contact “Dr. Mike” as soon as possible! 231-780-1100
