Emergency Dentist in Monroe Township NJ

What is emergency dentistry?

Emergency dentistry is available to patients who have experienced a dental injury or accident, or are in severe dental pain and discomfort. The goal of emergency dental care is to get patients out of pain quickly and back to optimal oral health as soon as possible. Dentists, like Dr. H.K. Virdee, will often leave openings in their schedules for same-day emergency appointments, and will sometimes be available after-hours and on weekends.

What To Do In A Dental Emergency

Stay Calm

An unexpected dental injury can be extremely painful, but it’s important not to panic. Nearly every dental issue has a solution and can be treated by a dentist. So don’t worry! Our Monroe Township dental office can help.

Control Any Bleeding

If blood is present following an accident or injury, you can use sterile gauze and pressure to control the bleeding. The bleeding should slow within an hour.

Reduce Swelling & Pain

Pain and swelling can be treated with an over-the-counter medication like ibuprofen or acetaminophen. Do not use aspirins that thin the blood as they will prevent clotting and may make it difficult to control bleeding. Applying an ice pack to the cheek near the affected area can also help relieve pain.

Call Us!

Give us a call as soon as you’ve regained control of your situation. We can help determine the severity of your dental injury, and get you in our office as soon as possible for prompt emergency care.

Same Day Dental Care

Same-day dental care ensures that you can resolve your dental emergency quickly and get the care you need from your dentist right away. Putting off treatment can put you at risk for more serious complications. For example, a broken tooth that could be easily treated with a dental crown might become infected and require a root canal if left untreated. Delaying treatment also forces you to deal with pain that you simply don’t need to live with. 

The sooner you see a dentist for your dental emergency, the sooner you’ll be on your way back to optimal dental health. We offer same-day care to ensure that you get the treatment you need when you need it.

After Hours Appointments

We offer after-hours appointments to patients who are experiencing serious dental emergencies. We understand that emergencies don’t just happen from 9 to 5, so we extend ourselves and our care to best help our patients in their times of need. If a dental emergency strikes beyond business hours, give us a call to schedule an after-hours appointment and get the help you need from our team.
