COVID-19 and Dental Emergencies

Dr. Ed Lazer is a dentist in Owings Mills, Maryland that is dedicated to patient care. At Cosmetic and Advanced Dentistry, we want to remind our patients of the links between stress and oral health. Patients may be more prone to dental problems including TMJ, mouth sores, and gum disease when they are stressed. Remember to maintain your oral hygiene and schedule a future routine appointment, as we are only taking dental emergencies at this time.

Emergency Dental Care FAQs

If you want to learn more about how dental emergencies are treated in our office, read below:

What do I do if my tooth is knocked out?

If your tooth has been knocked out contact Dr. Lazer immediately. If possible, retrieve the lost tooth. Lightly rinse the tooth and place it in a cup of saliva or milk to transport it to us. A tooth that is preserved like this may be able to be replaced within one hour of loss. Dental implants, dental bridges, and dentures can be used to replace the missing tooth if it cannot be rescued.

What do I do if I am feeling severe tooth pain?

You can take an over the counter pain reliever to improve symptoms. In severe cases, your pain may be caused by tooth decay or an abscess. Schedule an appointment with us if pain persists and apply a cold compress if you are experiencing swelling.

What do I do if my dental crown or filling breaks or falls out?

Contact Dr. Lazer and we will be able to construct and fit you with a new dental restoration. Do not attempt to reglue your restoration or reattach your dental crown or filling.

What do I do if my denture or dental bridge breaks?

If possible, schedule an appointment at our office and bring the broken appliance with you. We will help you to determine the best treatment plan for replacing the appliance.
