We give prompt attention to all dental emergencies including:
"Great practice! My wife had a dental emergency while we were on vacation here in OCMD. I called before they opened and left a message and they called me back right at 8:00 A.M and got us in at 8:30. My wife was checked in as a new patient and had her tooth fixed before 10:00 A.M. Thanks to Fenwick Dental we got to enjoy the rest of our vacation!" - Andrew Dolan
"These people are incredible. My daughter's appliance broke, and they were about to close. But they still fit us in and fixed it. I can't thank them enough." - Roland Kulig

Clove oil, orajel and over the counter pain medications are some of the remedies you can use before you see us.
Clove oil has eugenol in it. Eugenol has soothing effect that calms the nerve down. But you should not use oil directly as it is strong and it may burn the gum or tongue. You should apply few drops on the cotton and place cotton near the painful area or chew a whole clove.
Sometimes orajel helps to numb the painful gum area. Orajel is a topical anesthetic that gives relief for a few minutes.
Over the counter pain medication like Ibuprofen, neproxen and tylenol help to relieve pain. However you should consult your doctor or dentist before taking pain medication if you have allergy or serious medical condition.
If your face swells up due to infection then you should see a dentist right away. If you have swelling that progresses to your neck or eyes then you should go to ER right away as it may lead to serious complications.
Unfortunately most toothaches happens during the evening or at night time when most dental offices are closed. That is why routine dental check ups are necessary to prevent dental infection and pain.
if you have knocked your whole tooth out then you should gently rinse the tooth with water. Do not scrub the tooth. Place the tooth back into the socket. If you can not do that then place the tooth in your mouth between gum and cheek or in a glass of milk.
If a tooth is chipped or broken, we can restore the tooth by bonding or filling. If a tooth is painful and the pain is lingering more than a few minutes we may either do an emergency root canal treatment to save the tooth or we will remove the tooth.
