If you or your child suffer any type of dental trauma, you will want to immediately contact us at Mid-County Endodontic Group P.A. Our emergency dentist in Bergen County NJ, just one of whom is Dr. Dennis Pawlak, will be able to provide you with immediate care for your dental trauma.
We hope that you never do suffer a dental trauma, but if you do, it is important that you remember that our expert emergency dentist in Bergen County NJ stands ready to help you. What happens in the time immediately following a dental trauma can mean the difference between saving a tooth or having a missing tooth that needs to be replaced with a dental implant. One common type of dental trauma is a dislodged tooth. This occurs when a tooth is inadvertently pushed back into its socket. Our dentist may be able to reposition and stabilize the tooth, depending on your particular situation. When you have a dislodged tooth, you may need to have root canal treatment within a few weeks of the trauma. Sometimes, a tooth may be accidentally knocked out of your mouth. It is important in this case that you contact our office immediately. Our office will not only arrange an immediate appointment, but give you instructions on how to safely transport the tooth back to our office. The tooth should be handled by the enamel portion only. Our dentist may be able to reposition the tooth in your mouth, and provide necessary root canal treatment within 1 to 2 weeks of the accident. Our endodontist can also provide several treatments for children to help save a tooth that has been injured. An apexogenesis will encourage the root to continue developing as the pulp heals. Apexification is a procedure during which unhealthy pulp is removed, and medication is placed into the root to help with healing.
Whenever you need to see an emergency dentist in Bergen County NJ for treatment of dental trauma, contact our office immediately.
