Dental services we offer:
Wisdom teeth removal
Dental abscess drainage
A tooth extraction is an emergency dental procedure that removes a tooth from its socket. This procedure is often performed due to damage, decay, or infection. When done with one of our dentists, extractions can be performed quickly and with minimal discomfort. That ensures immediate pain relief and a speedy recovery for the patient.
Wisdom Tooth Removal
Wisdom teeth removal is a surgical dental procedure that involves extracting the third molars in the back of the mouth. These teeth often cause pain, infection, and other dental problems if they're impacted or don't have enough space.
Most patients are forced to remove them once they start causing excruciating pain.
A root canal is a dental procedure that involves removing an infected or damaged tooth nerve. It is often necessary to relieve pain and prevent further damage or infection.
Root canals are an alternative to extractions, allowing patients to preserve their natural teeth and maintain their organic smile.
Missing Filling Replacement
Dental fillings don't last forever because they can fall out if the bonding loosens. If left untreated, a missing filling can cause pain, sensitivity, and further damage to the tooth.
The solution for this dental emergency is to replace the filling, thus restoring the function and appearance of the affected tooth.
Dental Abscess Drainage
Dental abscess drainage is a palliative procedure that removes pus and infection from an abscess in the mouth. The procedure is necessary to relieve pain and prevent the spread of infection to other parts of the body.
However, you will still need permanent treatment for the source of the infection even after the drainage.
A tooth flipper is a temporary removable partial denture that can be used to replace missing teeth. They are made of acrylic and designed to fit over the gums and surrounding teeth, to restore your smile. Our Long Island City dentists will customize the flippers to match the color and shape of your natural teeth, allowing for a seamless and natural looking smile.

Do I need to go the Emergency Room?
If you are having tooth pain, your best option would be to see one of our dentists instead of going to the ER because they won't always be able to help you. If you lost a tooth filling or need a tooth removed, the ER will not do either of those procedures. They may give you some pain medication to hold you off until you can see a dentist but they will not take care of a toothache inside the ER.
The reason is because the ER is not equipped to perform emergency dentistry. There are no dental chairs with the saliva suction that you see at the dentist. There is no dental drill there either.
However, if you're unable to find an emergency dentist near you, then your only option would be to go your nearest local emergency department.
Dental Emergency Cost
The cost of your dental emergency visit would depend on what the emergency was and what procedure was used to relieve your pain. The more complex and invasive the treatment, the more you should expect to pay.
If you have dental insurance, most emergencies should be covered between 50-80%. How much that would be would depend on your insurance plan. We won't know what pain relieving procedure you need until we see you for the consultation.
