  • What is emergency dentistry?

    Emergency dentistry covers diagnostics and procedures to treat serious dental complications that occur unexpectedly or develop over time. Some dental emergencies are injuries, while others are very bad infections that evolve over time.

    No matter why you're visiting for emergency dentistry at Dental Specialists of New Jersey, our team makes time to see you and starts evaluating the emergency right away. We may take X-rays or in-office CT scans if they're necessary to see the extent of an infection or view any injuries below the gumline.

    If you lose one or more teeth or pieces of teeth due to a dental emergency, we will lay out your options to either repair them or replace them with restorations.

  • When do I need emergency dentistry?

    Tooth pain is often a main characteristic of a dental emergency. If you develop tooth pain that’s too intense to ignore, you should contact us for a possible emergency visit. Mild to moderate tooth pain should not be ignored. Come see us so we can evaluate and treat it so that you can avoid severe pain and fix problems while they are still small.
    Other dental emergencies come with pain as well as discernible damage. Some of the most common dental emergencies are:
    ● Knocked-out teeth.● Fractured teeth.● Soft tissue injuries in the mouth.● Pain under a dental crown.● Dental abscesses.
    For any dental emergency, sooner visits are better. You should get in contact with Dental Specialists of New Jersey before you do anything else.
