Emergency Dental Care in Pittsburgh
We understand that a dental emergency can be a stressful and unexpected event. We provide emergency dental care to patients the same day during office hours. We have extended hours to help accommodate your schedule.
Our caring staff will get you in to see Dr. Weingarden or Dr. Bakuri as soon as possible to treat your dental concern.
Pain relief is our top priority
Our priorities are to relieve any pain you may be experiencing, correct any immediate problems and treat any infection. If additional treatment is required, we will create a plan for addressing these issues in a future appointment.
Our caring and compassionate staff will make you feel welcome and put you at ease. Your doctor will listen to your concerns, answer any questions you have, and explain what needs to be done.
A dislodged tooth
When a tooth has been knocked out, follow these steps:
- Rinse your mouth
- Rinse the root of the tooth
- Attempt to gently place the tooth back in your mouth, without touching the root
- Once the tooth is back in, place a soft cloth between the upper and lower teeth and bite down gently until seen by a medical professional
It is important to keep it moist at all times. If you aren’t able to place the tooth back in the socket, place it between your teeth and gums.
A tooth that has been re-implanted by you or a dentist within an hour of injury has the greatest chance of successfully reintegrating into the gum. If no dentist is available, an emergency room can also treat your knocked out tooth.
