What is a Dental Emergency?

  • The American Dental Association (ADA) recommends recommends bi-annual routine dental check-up and cleanings as the best way to prevent dental emergencies.   Even with preventative care dental emergencies can occur.  It’s often difficult for patients to ascertain the urgency of their discomfort. 
  •  
  • What makes an emergency urgent that it requires immediate intervention?   If there’s severe pain strong enough to cause disruption of sleep or an abscess or facial swelling it’s recommended to visit a dentist immediately.   
  •  
  • Some issues that may seem like emergencies do not require immediate intervention.   A minor tooth chip, sensitivity to hot or cold, a crown or filling that fell out  require a dental appointment.  But if a day or two passes before you see a dentist, it’s not a big deal.  It’s important to remember, neglecting small dental concern can result in a larger problem if a dentist isn’t seen in a timely manner.

What can I Expect during my Emergency Dental Visit?

  •  The first step during your Emergency Dental visit is for the dentist to accurately diagnose the cause of your Dental Emergency.   By carefully listening to your signs and symptoms, conducting appropriate tests and taking the necessary x-rays the dentist will diagnose the cause of your dental discomfort.  We do not rush into treatment until we’ve carefully assessed your problem to reach an accurate diagnosis.
  •  
  • Diagnosing dental pain can be tricky at times as “referred dental pain” is very common.  Meaning that you may feel that you know which tooth is causing pain, while in reality it maybe a very different tooth.  The dentist will take appropriate x-rays and perform necessary test to accurately diagnose your emergency problem.
  •  
  • After the correct diagnosis has been established your dentist will present you with treatment options.  We will discuss the benefits and any draw-backs of your options.  An informed patient is our best client.  You’ll get a print out with fees and any portions that your insurance may cover.  Our goal is to make dental treatments affordable to everyone.
  •  
  • When you’re ready to begin treatment and all your questions have been answered,  your dentist will work to resolve your dental emergency.  Dr. Peter Mann has advanced dental training and over a decade of experience of practicing dentistry in NYC.  He has expertise in many dental procedures including fillings, crowns, veneers, root canals, tooth extractions, traditional dental implants and mini-dental implants.

Patient Testimonials

Best Emergency Dentist in Manhattan, NY

  •   Dr. Mann was great! He saw me very quickly with tooth emergency. His evaluation gave me confidence that I’d see him again. He said to wait on the root canal to see how tooth reacts over a week. Then he re-evaluated and did what was necessary to ensure my teeth had a clean bill of health.   By verified patient on Zocdoc
  •  
  •  Dr. Mann and his staff are the best. I needed an emergency root canal and they took great care of me. The procedure was quick and basically painless. I did’nt even need to take any pain relievers afterward. These people are professional, friendly and compassionate. I highly recommend them. Dr. Mann is a great dentist. By Robin D. on Yelp
  •  
  •  The best dentist in NYC. So professional, on time—never a wait, you are seen at your appointment time, so clean and comfortable setting, and awesome staff. Dr. Peter is great, and highly recommend him. Plus being open on weekends, is great, especially for those times you have a tooth emergency, which my mom did, and took her there. Then I became a patient as was so pleased with the service. by Niria P. on Yelp
  •  
  •   My dentist of 20 years retired. I went to Dr.Mann based on the reviews. Office staff is super nice,the place is very well run. They take many insurances, I had none, so I addressed my emergency first. His digital x ray and panoramic equipment confirmed my worst fear, my bridge was no good, and infected the post tooth requiring a root canal.
  • We sat, and discussed the situation, and decided saving the tooth was worth it, but building a bridge on a root canal was rolling the dice. Off came the bridge and on came the root canal and temporary crowns.
  • A total professional. I never felt 4 deep injections, the bridge was off in 10 minutes. The root canal was excellent. He was very careful, stopping 3 times and taking progressive X rays so we could be sure everything including the posts were placed right.
  • I was out in 90 minutes. I had a deep infection that could have had serious consequences. The day before the procedure I was placed on a 7 day round of antibiotics.
  • Did it hurt like hell that night when the shot wore off? Yes, took a lot of advil, like 2-3 every 2 hours. Next morning, it was a new day, and I felt fine. I am getting the permanent crowns in a week, and in about two months, I am going back for two implants. No more bridge. He does mini implants however I am not a viable candidate for that. Eventually I need a third implant for a missing tooth on the other side and a night guard for TMJ.
  • He does it all, great staff, great practice. I am so glad I found him. You trust him. He is straight forward , honest and informative. by Joe B. on Yelp

  •   This is the second time when Dr. Mann treated an emergency. Both times he was a complete competent professional and treated my problems (re a filling that came out and a fractured tooth) successfully and efficiently. I have complete confidence in him. The staff is also very good. In addition, he does not overcharge as do others in the New York area. After going to a number of dentists who were less competent and less caring, I plan to return to Dr. Mann for future regular treatment. by Natalia K on Zocdoc
