Emergency Dental Service

Emergency Dental Service in Brooklyn, NY

Dental emergencies don’t take a break, and neither do we! At Leading Edge Oral Care, we understand that mishaps can happen anytime — on a quiet Saturday evening, or in the middle of a bustling Wednesday. That's why Dr. Steven Mermelstein and our dedicated team are always geared up to provide emergency dental care.

From that sudden toothache that strikes near midnight to the unforeseen accident on a weekend, we’ve got you covered. Here's a quick list of emergencies we handle:

Loose Bridges

A dislodged bridge can lead to misaligned bite, difficulty in chewing, and exposed areas becoming prone to decay or sensitivity. Quick intervention ensures proper function and reduces the risk of complications.

Loose Crowns

Crowns protect weakened or damaged teeth. When dislodged, the underlying tooth is exposed to potential decay, temperature sensitivity, or further damage. Immediate attention can prevent more extensive treatments later.

Loose Fillings

Fillings seal off areas of previous decay. When they become loose, they expose the tooth to bacteria, potentially leading to a new cavity or infection. A dentist should address this promptly to maintain tooth health.

Broken or Chipped Teeth

Damaged teeth can cause pain, sharp edges, and potential for further breakage. Quick intervention can prevent complications and often reduces the extensiveness of required repairs.

Soft Tissue Damage and Gum Bleeding

Injuries to the gums or soft tissues of the mouth can expose the area to infections, prolong bleeding, and be indicative of more serious underlying issues. Immediate dental care minimizes risks and facilitates healing.

Loose or Knocked-Out Teeth

Time is of the essence for a knocked-out tooth; immediate dental intervention increases the chances of saving the tooth. Moreover, a loose tooth can affect bite alignment and risk being completely dislodged.

Tooth Abscesses

Abscesses indicate infections which can spread, endangering surrounding teeth and even impacting overall health. Addressing abscesses immediately can alleviate pain and prevent more serious complications.


Persistent toothaches can be a sign of deeper issues, such as infections or cavities. Quick evaluation and treatment not only alleviate pain but also address the root cause.

Cracked Teeth

Cracks can compromise the structural integrity of a tooth and serve as entry points for bacteria, potentially leading to infections or decay. Immediate attention ensures the best possible outcome and prevention of further damage.

Remember, the faster you get to an emergency dentist, the better the outcome usually is. So don’t wait!
