Your Massapequa Park Emergency Dentist

469156185As a highly trained emergency dentist in Massapequa Park, NY, Dr. Allan Mohr understands the impact a dental emergency can have on your life, both in the immediate sense and over the long term. Addressing your dental emergency quickly and efficiently in the office of a trusted Massapequa Park dentist will help to ensure that you keep more of your natural tooth structure and smile, even following a sudden injury or accident.

Dealing with Dental Emergencies

No one is ever ready for an emergency; they are, by their very nature, unexpected. In the case of a dental emergency, knowing that you have a skilled and experienced dentist in your corner can make all the difference in the world. If you experience any of the following, please do not hesitate to contact Dr. Mohr and our caring staff as soon as possible. Some of the most common dental emergencies include:

  • Broken or chipped tooth
  • Partially or fully knocked out tooth
  • Lacerations to gums, tongue, lips, and other soft tissues
  • Severe toothache that does not subside with flossing around the tooth
  • Abscess
  • Lost crown or filling

If you have lost a tooth due to an injury, take care to place the tooth in a container of milk or clean water until you reach our office. Avoid touching the root portion of the tooth, and do not attempt to remove any connective tissues still attached. It may be possible to place the tooth back in the socket, thereby preserving more of your natural dentition.

Because we know how serious dental emergencies can be, we strive to serve all of our emergency patients as soon as possible. We’re here to ensure your continued oral health and the beauty of your smile, and we pledge to respond quickly to your needs, especially during urgent care situations.

Dental Prophylaxis vs. Deep Cleaning: Understanding Periodontal Care with Dr. Mohr

476106489The health of your teeth and gums directly affects your overall wellness, making routine oral hygiene visits at the dentist a vital component of a healthy lifestyle. Keeping your gums healthy may actually reduce your risk of developing certain medical conditions, including heart disease, dementia, stroke, and cancer. At Smile Creations in Massapequa Park, NY, Dr. Allan S. Mohr helps his patients maintain exceptional oral health with a variety of preventive and periodontal care solutions, including dental prophylaxis and deep cleaning.

Comprehensive Gum Care for a Healthy Smile

Dental prophylaxis – commonly called a “prophy” – is a treatment that involves polishing the teeth to control bacteria on the teeth and just beneath the gum line. A prophy is typically performed twice per year, or every six months, to maintain healthy gums and teeth. This type of visit doesn’t take long (typically not more than an hour), and it is often completely covered by your dental insurance. Even patients who don’t have dental benefits can receive this kind of preventive care for very little out of pocket.

A deep cleaning is performed when the level of bacteria and plaque beneath the gum line is higher than normal and causing irritation of the gums. Left untreated, this inflammation and infection can lead to the loss of bone tissue and teeth over time. Fortunately, a deep cleaning can essentially halt the progression of periodontal disease before it advances to this level. During this type of visit, Dr. Mohr effectively removes the cause of the infection itself, the bacteria that accumulate on the teeth beneath the gums. Additional therapies may be used to decrease sensitivity and to promote healing, including a diode soft tissue laser and antibiotic medications. Deep cleaning visits are typically scheduled more frequently – approximately every three months – in order to maintain periodontal health.
