Emergency Dentist | Dentist Riverdale Bronx, NY | Riverdale Family Dental

Dr. Glick and our dedicated team understand that dental emergencies can be both painful and unsettling. Rest assured, we are here to provide prompt and expert care, ensuring your well-being when you need us most. Same day emergencies are welcome.

Immediate Relief for Tooth Pain

Tooth pain can arise from various causes, and our experienced team at Riverdale Family Dental is equipped to address them with precision. Whether it's tooth decay or pulp damage, our treatments are tailored to alleviate your discomfort.

  • Tooth Decay Treatment: Tooth decay treatment at Riverdale Family Dental emphasizes a careful and informative approach to preserve your dental health. Dr. Glick employs advanced techniques to address decayed areas, ensuring the removal of compromised tissue in a thorough and precise manner. This procedure involves a comprehensive cleaning of the affected tooth, followed by the placement of a simple filling to restore the tooth's integrity.
  • Pulp Damage Treatment: Root canal therapy is designed to alleviate pain and save a severely damaged or infected tooth. When the inner pulp of a tooth becomes inflamed or infected due to deep decay or trauma, a root canal is performed. During the procedure, the affected pulp is removed, the interior of the tooth is cleaned, and it is sealed to prevent further infection.

Addressing Traumatic Dental Injuries

Traumatic dental injuries, often resulting from sports-related accidents, demand immediate attention. Dr. Glick offers specialized care in Bronx, NY, including:

  • Tooth Displacement: Dr. Glick will check to see if the root, nerves, and blood vessels are still intact, position the tooth back in its socket, and anchor it to the adjacent teeth with a flexible or rigid splint. Splints are worn for several weeks, stabilizing the tooth while giving the ligament and tissue around it time to heal. Root canal treatment may be necessary in the future.
  • Knocked-Out Tooth: Treating an avulsed tooth properly is essential to successful reimplantation. Avoid touching the root, and gently rinse the tooth in milk, water, or saliva if it’s dirty. Don’t wipe it clean to protect connective tissue cells on the roots. Carefully return the tooth to the socket if possible or place the tooth in your mouth next to the cheek. If placing the tooth in the mouth isn’t an option, keep the tooth moist with milk rather than water. If Dr. Glick can replace the tooth in its socket, it will be stabilized with a splint. A root canal procedure is generally recommended soon after tooth replacement.

  • "Dr. Glick is extremely efficient, yet he takes time to explain all options and answer all questions. He understands patients' fears and misgivings, and knows how to be consoling without being condescending. I am fortunate that his practice is located in my neighborhood, but I'd certainly travel to consult him."
    M.ary B
  • "The staff was very kind and informative. Dr.Min explained everything and offered several different procedures instead of going directly for my pockets $$. He was very comforting which is important because I'm very nervous when it comes to the Dentist."
