New York, NY -- (SBWIRE) -- 10/05/2015 -- There must be something in the air because Dr. Ira Morrow DMD has been seeing an increase in emergency dental cases lately. Fortunately, Dr. Morrow is able to help those who come for emergency dental treatment, with veneers, bonding and other restorations.
For instance, there was the young boy who recently came in with fractured teeth after a heated pillow fight with his sibling. Dr. Morrow was able to treat the boy quickly and didn't need to use any type of sedative. Dr. Morrow used dental bonding to make the repair, which is a composite resin that attaches to the teeth. The resin can be made to match the tooth color of the patient, and it can be shaped to look just like a real tooth.
Then, there was the case of the 11-year-old girl who had to make an emergency trip to Dr. Morrow's office when her 5-year-old brother threw a golf ball at her. Her front tooth was broken, which is not only very uncomfortable for the patient but, if it isn't fixed quickly, the tooth can break even more. This can cause more pain, lead to an infection in the tooth and may require a more complex procedure to fix it. However, Dr. Morrow was once again able to use dental bonding to fix the tooth. The whole visit to Dr. Morrow's office only took about an hour.
If an accident that has caused damage to a tooth, a veneer may be another option. Veneers are very thin shells, about the thickness of a contact lens. They fit over a tooth that has been cracked, chipped, or broken, and once they are placed, it can be difficult for anyone to tell the patient has one. The veneer protects the tooth from further damage.
"Dental emergencies can be scary and can make the patient wonder if he or she will ever have a beautiful smile again," said Dr. Morrow. "But thanks to modern dental techniques that I use, my patients don't have to be worried or afraid. They will have their gorgeous smile back very soon!"
