I highly recommend Dr. Patel. He puts his patients first. Here's why...Dr. Patel, of Fountain Park Dental, came to his office and helped me on New Years Eve 12/31/2024! I am a professional musician and had a show that evening. I had to be at the venue in four hours to play keyboards, and my front top teeth had fallen out. Dr. Patel came into his office and used dental adhesive to remount my temporaries. Thank you SO MUCH Dr. Patel. You are my hero sir!

I had the best experience at Dr. Patel’s office! His staff are incredibly kind, informative, and made my visit so enjoyable. I went in for a 6 month cleaning. Dr Patel took the time to explain to me the best way to remove my impacted wisdom teeth, how the extraction & post-op would go, and was very reassuring about all the concerns I had about my TMJ problems. Not pushy or forceful at all. Please visit here if you are searching for a new dentist! You will not be disappointed.

I couldn't be happier with my recent visit to Fountain Park Dental! Dr. Patel’s attentiveness and wealth of information were truly impressive, making me feel well-informed and at ease throughout my appointment. Jeanny, who was my dental hygienist, is the most caring professional I've encountered. She genuinely prioritized my dental health and made sure I was comfortable during my visit. This team goes above and beyond in providing exceptional care, and I highly recommend them for anyone seeking top-notch dental services.

New practice that takes time to consult with patients about their oral hygiene and the benefits of caring for your teeth so that you can avoid losing them along with the potential high cost of repairing the damage.  Looking forward to having the same hygienist every time.

After Hours Appointments

Dental emergencies don’t always strike during regular business hours. That’s why we offer after hours appointments so you can get the care you deserve, when you need it most.

Immediate Implants

Losing a tooth leaves you with a gap in your smile; fill that gap right away with immediate implants. Dental implants can stop you from losing bone mass while restoring your bite, but the longer you go without a tooth, the more likely you are to lose bone, so timely care is crucial. If you've lost a tooth, or require an extraction, ask us if a dental implant is right for you so you can get out of pain and back to your routine!

What do I do in a Dental Emergency?

Keep Calm & Reduce Bleeding

Any dental mishap can transform a routine day into a stressful, discomforting ordeal. But remember, it's essential to remain calm - your team at Fountain Park Dental is here to assist you. Simply inhaling deeply and evaluating the situation can significantly improve your decision-making during an emergency. If any bleeding occurs due to your dental injury, use a sterile strip of gauze to apply pressure on the affected area. Hold the gauze in position until the bleeding ceases, or until you get to our office.

Control Swelling & Pain

You can temporarily lessen any pain or swelling you might be experiencing using over-the-counter pain relievers like ibuprofen or acetaminophen, unless otherwise directed by your healthcare providers. Please do avoid aspirin and similar medications as they could hamper clot formation and make it harder to halt bleeding. Besides medication, a cold compress can also offer pain relief. Apply an ice pack to the cheek or lip near the affected area until you can be seen by our team.

Call Us Right Away

Once you've gotten a handle on your dental emergency, give us a call right away. Even if you're not certain whether your situation is an emergency, our team is here to help evaluate your situation and get you into our office for the necessary care as soon as possible.

Frequently Asked Questions

What should I do if I’ve knocked out a tooth?

If you've accidentally knocked out a tooth, it's important to act quickly to increase the chances of saving it. First, carefully pick up the tooth by the top (crown) and avoid touching the root. Rinse it gently with warm water to remove any debris, being careful not to scrub or rub it. If possible, try to place the tooth back into its socket without forcing it. If it doesn't go back in easily, store it in a container of cold milk and contact us immediately for guidance and to ensure we are prepared for your visit. Time is of the essence, as the tooth needs to be replaced and splinted within 1-2 hours to avoid further damage.

What should I do if my dental work has fallen out?

If any of your dental work, such as a filling or crown, has fallen out, it's important to take action promptly. Place the dental work in a plastic bag or container and bring it with you to our office. Call us right away to schedule an emergency visit so we can address the issue as soon as possible. Even though it's not a natural tooth, losing dental work can expose vulnerable parts of your mouth to bacteria, leading to infection, decay, or other complications. Don't delay in getting in touch with us to ensure your smile is restored with restorative dental work.

What should I do about a severe toothache?

If you're experiencing a severe toothache that lasts for 2 or more days, it could indicate a tooth infection, which requires immediate attention. Contact us without delay to schedule an appointment. In the meantime, you can manage the pain by applying a cold compress to your cheek, taking over-the-counter pain medication, or using a topical product like Orajel to numb the tooth.

Once you've gotten a handle on your dental emergency, give us a call right away. It is crucial to seek professional dental care to address the underlying cause of the toothache and prevent further complications.

What should I do about a chipped, broken or cracked tooth?

If you have a chipped, broken, or cracked tooth, it's essential to seek professional dental care as soon as possible. Without a thorough examination, it's difficult to determine the severity of the damage. Leaving such issues untreated can lead to infections and additional complications that could have been prevented. Contact us immediately to schedule an appointment and allow us to assess the extent of the damage. We will provide guidance and recommendations on how to restore and protect your smile, as well as alleviate any dental pain you may be experiencing.

What should I do about a loose tooth?

If you have a loose tooth due to a dental injury, it's crucial to contact us right away to schedule a same-day appointment. Leaving a loose tooth untreated can result in the nerves supporting the tooth dying, leading to its loss. To maintain stability, avoid touching the loose tooth with your tongue or fingers. When you arrive at our office for emergency care, your dentist will attach the loose tooth to the adjacent teeth with a stabilizing splint. This splint will provide support and initiate the healing process, allowing the tooth to reattach itself to your gums. Don't hesitate to reach out for our help – we are here to assist you in preserving your tooth.
