Because dental emergencies are never planned, Dr. Dani Benyaminy provides as-needed appointments. Dr. Dani, located in the Century City/Westwood area of Los Angeles, makes time to treat patients in the event of a knocked out tooth, abscess or a toothache.
Among the most common dental emergencies that Dr. Dani treats in his practice are:
In many cases, a permanent tooth can be replanted. Patients should keep the dislodged tooth moist until reaching the dentist. Gently rinse it in water to remove dirt, but don’t scrub. If possible, place the tooth back into the socket without touching the root (the part of the tooth that was under the gum). The root can be damaged easily and these cells are needed for reattachment. If the tooth can not be placed back into the socket, the next best thing is to store it in the mouth, or immerse it in milk or saliva and wrap it in a clean cloth. Similarly, if a tooth is chipped, keep the chipped piece moist with a couple of drops of water, then wrap the chip in gauze, place it inside a plastic bag and take it to the dentist immediately. Please note, baby teeth that are prematurely knocked out should not be put back in the socket. Doing so can negatively impact the permanent tooth underneath.
