The most common Dental Emergencies are toothaches, broken teeth, and knocked out teeth. They all need immediate dental attention. Call us at 908-236-7800. We accept all emergencies and will fit you into our schedule. Toothaches can result from dental cavities, fractured teeth, bite problems, gum problems, infections, or tooth impactions. An X-Ray is usually needed to help diagnosis the problem, and antibiotics, bite adjustment, cleanings, fillings, crowns, root canal treatments, or extractions may be performed or prescribed.
If a tooth is broken or knocked out with dirt, rinse the mouth with warm salt water for the dirt, use dental floss to dislodge trapped food or debris, and place a cold compress over the face in the injured area. Rinse the tooth in cold water, but be careful not to touch the root. Take the tooth to the dentist in a cup of cold water or milk.
