Cornerstone Dental Provides Same-Day Emergency and Immediate Walk-In Dental Care

Statistics from the American Dental Association state that there are approximately two million emergency room dental visits per year in the United States. With those kinds of numbers, there is a strong chance that every person will have a dental emergency at some point in his or her lifetime. The trouble is that these emergencies often happen without any kind of warning. Should a genuine dental emergency requiring immediate care arise, Cornerstone Dental, located in Middletown, NY, can often provide immediate, same-day emergency services. Our patients should always have support in these types of immediate dental care situations, which is why we are on call from Monday through Friday – as well as Saturdays – if an emergency appointment is necessary. The Cornerstone Dental office can be reached by email or phone, seven days a week. An emergency dentist in Middletown, NY, works with patients who have severe dental needs.

Conditions That Require Emergency Dental Care Services

  • Chronic or sudden toothache
  • Teeth that have cracked, been chipped, or broken
  • Tooth that has been knocked out
  • Food or foreign object lodged between teeth
  • Excessive bleeding from soft tissue damage
  • Necessary attention to dental restorations that have failed

Both the type and severity of the dental issue determines if an emergency is happening. If someone chips a tooth, and it is minor, treatment is needed, but this is not considered as an emergency. A tooth that has either been fractured down to the root or knocked out does require emergency dental care. Also, anyone who is in extreme pain is eligible for immediate dental assistance, as he or she should not suffer unnecessarily. The experienced on-call dentist at Cornerstone Dental is ready to be of service.
