The goal of our endodontic associates in Bergen County NJ is to save teeth. If you ever need immediate dental care to save your tooth, you can do no better than to contact our office for help. Some of the reasons patients can need immediate dental care is if they or a family member has a tooth that is dislodged or avulsed. When a tooth is dislodged, it means that a tooth has been pushed back into its socket, and removed from its proper position. Our endodontist may be able to reposition and stabilize the tooth. This will all depend on the severity of pulp damage. If a root canal treatment is needed, it will be started within a few weeks after injury. When a tooth is avulsed, it means that the tooth has been knocked out of the mouth. In this situation, time is of the essence. It is important to gather up the knocked-out tooth, handling it by its enamel portion. Our office will give you instructions on how to safely transport the tooth to our office for immediate treatment. In this case, you will most likely need to have root canal treatment in several weeks, as well. With quick action, hopefully this tooth too can be saved. Sometimes a child has a dental problem which calls for immediate dental care. If a baby tooth is injured, your child may need to have an apexogenesis. This procedure will encourage the root to continue developing while the pulp is healing. If the roots of the tooth heal properly, no additional treatment will be needed.
Whenever you or a family member needs immediate dental care, be sure to contact our office for excellent treatment by one of our endodontic associates in Bergen County NJ.
