In New York, we’re dealing with a unique time where the strictest of safety protocols are being taken to prevent the spread of COVID-19. Unfortunately, dental emergencies don’t wait in the middle of the coronavirus pandemic.
So, what happens when you’re in the middle of a dental emergency in New York City? Well, depending on the severity of your situation, the answer is “it depends”.
At Gramercy Dental Center, we encourage you to call our NYC emergency dentist if you’re:
- In pain
- Have a visibly broken tooth
- Are experiencing swelling or bleeding
- Can’t eat, drink, or work
Once we get you on the phone, we’ll discuss your specific needs and concerns, then make a plan of action for what comes next. Right now, we’re only providing emergency treatments and similar essential care services at our office. If you require immediate attention, we can possibly arrange to see you on the same day. Otherwise, the best thing to do might be to call in a medication until the COVID-19 pandemic subsides and we can see you in person.
Right now, your health and safety are paramount. We ask that you don’t go to the hospital emergency room for a toothache or broken tooth. Not only do they lack the resources to treat your dental infection, they are currently working at max capacity and on limited personal protective equipment (PPE) to control the pandemic affecting our city. The best thing to do is to work with an NYC emergency dentist who has the specific technology available to treat your tooth and prevent the pain from recurring.
