Emergency Dental Care Old Bridge, NJ

A dental emergency is an accident or injury that affects your oral health and requires immediate attention. If you lose a tooth, develop a severe cavity, or get hit in the mouth, it’s important to seek professional treatment as soon as possible. Failing to meet with an emergency dentist such as Dr. Pavlushkin and the team could mean the difference between serious oral health problems and a beautiful smile. 

Dr. Pavlushkin provides emergency dentistry services to patients living in and around Old Bridge, NJ, Middlesex County, and Central New Jersey. Read on to learn more about common dental emergencies we can help with. 

Common Dental Emergencies

Dr. Pavlushkin and the team use emergency dentistry to treat a variety of oral health problems, including:

  • Toothaches: Persistent toothaches can signal underlying issues such as cavities, infections, or even dental trauma. Dr. Pavlushkin will promptly diagnose the cause and provide appropriate treatment to alleviate your discomfort.
  • Knocked-Out Teeth: Accidents happen and may lead to knocked-out teeth. Quick action is crucial. By seeking immediate care at Empire Dental Group, you enhance the chances of saving the tooth. Our tailored treatment approaches aim to reimplant the tooth whenever possible.
  • Chipped or Broken Teeth: Whether from a fall, sports injury, or other mishaps, chipped or broken teeth require swift attention. We evaluate the extent of damage and recommend suitable treatments to restore both functionality and aesthetics.
  • Loose Tooth: A loose tooth can result from trauma or underlying issues. Our team assesses the cause, stabilizes the tooth if possible, and outlines necessary steps to ensure optimal recovery.
  • Oral Abscesses: Oral abscesses are painful infections that demand immediate attention. Our comprehensive approach addresses the infection, provides relief, and ensures that appropriate measures are taken to prevent further complications.

When faced with a dental emergency, every moment counts. Immediate attention to tooth pain, injuries, and abscesses significantly increases the likelihood of saving your teeth and preventing further complications. You might also benefit from seeing our Old Bridge emergency dentist if you have a crown or bridge that cracks, loosens, or falls out.

Lost Tooth

Carefully pick up your tooth and rinse it off in cool tap water. Once cleaned, try and place it back in the socket. If the tooth continues to wobble, tuck it inside your cheek or place it in a glass of milk, then call the team right away. They can provide you with tips to minimize pain, bleeding, or swelling on the way to the office.

Damaged Restoration

If you chip or damage a dental restoration like a crown or bridge, pick up the pieces, rinse them off, and place them in a plastic bag. Once the restoration is secure, call the team and explain the situation.

Same-Day Emergency Dental Care

While we recommend patients to call for appointments, we understand that emergencies don't always follow a schedule. Walk-ins are always welcome at our Old Bridge dental office. Our dedicated team strives to accommodate walk-in and same-day patients to provide the necessary care as promptly as possible.

How can I prevent a dental emergency?

Dental emergencies can occur at any time, so there’s no way to prevent them entirely. Even so, there are steps you can take to significantly lower your risk. Dr. Pavlushkin and the team recommend practicing good oral hygiene, visiting our Old Bridge, NJ dentist office at least twice a year, and eating a healthy, balanced diet.

If you play contact sports like football or hockey, or you enjoy extreme activities like skateboarding or mountain biking, wear a mouthguard. These custom oral appliances can significantly reduce the risk of chips, cracks, or knocked-out teeth.

If you or a loved one is in need of an emergency dentist in Old Bridge, NJ, contact Empire Dental Group right away. Book online, call our office at (732) 607-0909 to speak with a member of our staff, or walk in during normal business hours.
