What does emergency dentistry mean?

A member of the friendly staff can fit you into Dr. Segal's schedule quickly. Emergency dentistry services are available during all regular business hours throughout the week.

What kinds of emergency dentistry services are available?

  • Knocked-out teeth (tooth avulsion)
  • Lacerations in the mouth (inner cheek cuts)
  • Lip lacerations
  • Cheek or jaw area lacerations
  • Facial fractures: nose, cheek, and orbital (eye socket)
  • Jaw fractures

Dr. Segal specializes in trauma, whether it occurs because of an auto accident, a sports injury, violence, a fall, or for some other reason. 

What types of treatments does emergency dentistry include?

Emergency dentistry treatments vary with the tissue affected, with some common options including:

  • Stabilizing a loose tooth
  • Re-implanting an avulsed tooth
  • Replacing unsalvageable teeth with dental implants
  • Disinfecting and treating lacerations
  • Suturing lacerations
  • Facial nerve treatments
  • Salivary gland and duct treatments
  • Rigid fixation (plates and screws) to stabilize facial fractures 

Dr. Segal focuses on not only your function but also your appearance. When he has to perform surgery, he uses the smallest possible incisions, positioned in the most discreet areas to minimize the risk of scarring.

When should I return for a follow-up after emergency dentistry?

Dr. Segal gives you detailed instructions when you leave Periodontist of Weston. In most cases, you'll return in a week or so for a follow-up appointment. At that time, Segal can remove any sutures, check your healing progress, and prescribe any new treatments you need to recover completely.
