Types of Dental Emergencies

Severe Toothache 

A severe toothache characterized by persistent and intense pain often indicates an underlying dental issue such as tooth decay, infection, or abscess. The pain may worsen with chewing or biting and may be accompanied by swelling or sensitivity to hot or cold temperatures. Immediate evaluation by our dentist at Park Avenue Dental is essential to identify and address the cause of the toothache and provide relief from pain. 

Knocked-Out Tooth 

An avulsed or knocked-out tooth can occur due to accidents, sports injuries, or trauma to the mouth. Quick action is crucial to increase the chances of saving the tooth.

If a tooth is knocked out, it should be handled carefully by the crown (top) and rinsed gently with water without removing any attached tissue. The tooth can then be placed back into its socket or kept moist in milk or saliva until dental treatment can be sought. Contact us today to learn more! 

Dental Abscess 

A dental abscess is a painful infection that forms around the root of a tooth or in the gums. Symptoms may include severe throbbing pain, swelling of the face or gums, fever, or pus drainage. Left untreated, a dental abscess can lead to severe complications, including spreading infection to other body parts. Immediate evaluation and treatment by a dentist are necessary to drain the abscess and alleviate pain. 

Lost Dental Restoration 

Losing a filling, crown, bridge, or other dental restoration can expose the underlying tooth structure and lead to sensitivity, discomfort, or further damage. Patients experiencing a lost dental restoration should contact their dentist promptly for evaluation and replacement of the restoration to prevent complications and restore oral function. 

Orthodontic Emergencies 

Issues with orthodontic appliances, such as broken brackets, wires, or bands, can cause discomfort or compromise the effectiveness of treatment. Patients experiencing orthodontic emergencies should contact their dentist for guidance on managing the issue and scheduling an emergency appointment if necessary.  

Essential Services Included in 24/7 Emergency Dental Care  

Immediate Assessment 

When patients arrive at our emergency dental care facility in South Plainfield, NJ, they undergo an immediate assessment by one of our skilled emergency dentists. This assessment involves thoroughly examining the dental issue, including the severity of pain, visible damage to the teeth or gums, and any other symptoms or concerns reported by the patient. The dentist gathers crucial information to determine the appropriate action and provide timely relief.  

Pain Management 

One of the primary objectives of 24/7 emergency dental care is to alleviate pain and discomfort associated with dental emergencies. Our emergency dentists are trained to provide adequate pain management techniques tailored to the patient's needs and the nature of the dental issue. This may include administering local anesthesia to numb the affected area, prescribing pain medication, or performing emergency procedures to address the underlying cause of pain.  

Treatment for Dental Trauma 

Dental emergencies often involve trauma to the teeth, gums, or surrounding oral tissues. Our emergency dentists are equipped to handle various types of dental trauma, including fractures, avulsions (knocked-out teeth), dislodged teeth, and soft tissue injuries. Depending on the severity of the trauma, treatment may involve reimplantation of knocked-out teeth, stabilization of fractured teeth, or repair of soft tissue injuries to restore oral health and function.  

Emergency Extractions 

In cases of severe decay, infection, or trauma, emergency extractions may be necessary to alleviate pain and prevent further complications. Our emergency dentists perform extractions with precision and care, using advanced techniques to minimize discomfort and ensure patient safety. Extractions may be recommended for severely damaged or infected teeth that cannot be saved through other means, allowing patients to find relief from pain and restore oral health.  

Management of Dental Infections 

Dental infections, such as abscesses or cellulitis, require immediate attention to prevent the spread of infection and alleviate pain. Our emergency dentists provide prompt treatment for dental infections, which may include incision and drainage procedures, antibiotic prescriptions, or root canal therapy to remove infected pulp and save the tooth. Emergency care helps prevent further complications and promote healing by addressing the underlying infection.  

Repair of Broken or Fractured Teeth 

Broken or fractured teeth can cause significant pain and compromise oral function. Our emergency dentists offer prompt repair of broken or fractured teeth using restorative techniques such as dental bonding, crowns, or veneers. These treatments restore the tooth's structural integrity, alleviate discomfort, and enhance the smile's appearance, allowing patients to regain confidence and function.
