Saddle Brook dental emergency
Dental trauma, such as the results of injuries and accidents on your teeth, are true urgent matters and we at EverSmile Dental are prepared to handle them. The most common ones are dislodged or avulsed (knocked out) teeth. Our goal is to save those teeth if it all possible.
When a tooth becomes separated from its socket, either partially or completely, you are dealing with a full-fledged Saddle Brook dental emergency. What you do in the time immediately following the incident is vital to the outcome of the situation. For a dislodged tooth, you should try to gently push it back into its socket. And when the tooth has come loose completely from the socket, you will need to keep it moist until you can get to our office. So what you’ll want to do is place it in a container with warm water and a pinch of salt, or a container of milk. Contact us and let us know that you are on your way. If you have injuries elsewhere on or in your body that need immediate medical attention, then go to an ER, but for a strictly dental circumstance, hospitals are not the best choice. They are not typically set up well to handle a Saddle Brook dental emergency. And they usually do not have a dentist on staff. Our urgent dentist will assess your tooth and take the most appropriate action. If there is no damage to the pulp of the tooth, a dislodged one may be able to simply be put back in its socket. When pulp damage is present, though, or when the tooth is free of the socket, you will generally need root canal to rescue the tooth.
