What Is Considered a Dental Emergency?

Providing immediate care is crucial for safeguarding your long-term oral health. Some of the more common dental emergencies that we can treat include:


Symptoms can range from mild dental sensitivity to throbbing, shooting, dull, and radiating pain. Treatment may involve a tooth-colored filling, root canal therapy, or a dental crown.

Cracked, Chipped, or Broken Teeth

Tooth damage can occur because of something you eat, due to rough play, or even as a result of temporomandibular joint (TMJ) disorder. Treatment options include dental bonding, root canal therapy, or a dental crown.

Loosened or Knocked-Out Teeth

This type of damage typically occurs from a fall or other facial injury. Dr. Cipriano will aim to salvage your natural tooth; otherwise, dental implants or bridges may be considered.

Lodged Object Between Teeth

Safely attempt removal with dental floss. If unsuccessful, contact our office for assistance.

Missing Crown/Damaged Dental Work

Preserve broken parts of fillings or crowns and contact us immediately. Our state-of-the-art lab can create strong, durable, customized restorations to help repair your smile.

​​“Dr. Cipriano is the absolute best dentist with an amazing staff! They truly care about your experience in and out of the office. They know who we are when we walk in, and make us feel like we are part of the family. After a long road of genetic dental issues and quick fixes from other providers, my daughter did not smile with her mouth open until Dr. Cipriano worked his magic on her smile. He listened to her, was patient, kind and would not finish the job until HE, was completely satisfied that my daughter was happy. It might seem like a little thing, but finally seeing my daughter smile with her teeth showing has made a world of difference for this mom. The BEST of the BEST! Thank you Healthy Smiles of Staten Island”

“I grew up in SI & now live in FL. Even w/ that I have never changed my dentist. I go quarterly for cleanings. But here is why you should go here; I just flew up for Christmas, On 12/22 I needed a full root canal, typically multiple visits. Knowing I live in FL Dr. C stayed & completed the whole job, including using amazing technology to print a crown, in 1 visit. It was unreal. I had no pain & was at dinner in NYC that evening for a Christmas party.  Every person there is super nice, helpful, etc. Hands down, I will fly from FL to Newark just for an appointment here in SI. That’s how good they are, which I know sounds crazy.  But it’s worth it! If you live in Ny or Nj clearly the best dentist in the area.”

Frequently Asked Questions

What qualifies as a dental emergency?

Dental emergencies include severe toothaches, injuries to the teeth or gums, knocked-out teeth, and issues causing significant pain or bleeding.

How do I know if my situation is an emergency?

If you experience severe pain, swelling, bleeding, or have a dental issue that disrupts normal functioning, it may be an emergency. 

What should I do if my tooth is knocked out?

Preserve the tooth, avoid touching the root, gently rinse, and try to reinsert it. If not possible, store it in milk or your saliva and seek immediate dental attention.

Is a chipped tooth considered an emergency?

While a chipped tooth may not always be an emergency, if it causes severe pain or exposes the nerve, it requires prompt attention.

Can I wait until normal hours for a dental emergency?

In some cases, waiting may worsen the situation. Contact us immediately, and we will advise on the urgency of your situation.

What if I have severe tooth pain?

Severe tooth pain may indicate an infection or abscess. Contact us immediately for evaluation and appropriate treatment.

How can I manage dental pain at home temporarily?

Over-the-counter pain relievers, cold compresses, and avoiding hot or cold foods can help manage dental pain temporarily. However, professional evaluation is crucial.

Is a lost filling or crown an emergency?

While not always an emergency, a lost filling or crown should be addressed promptly to prevent further damage to the tooth.

Can I use over-the-counter dental cement for a temporary fix?

Over-the-counter dental cement may provide a temporary solution for a lost crown or filling, but professional attention is necessary for a permanent fix.

Do dental emergencies cost more?

The cost of dental emergencies varies and the specific treatment required will influence the overall cost.
