At Dipika T Shah, DDS, LLC., in Holmdel, NJ, we feature a qualified staff trained to handle important dental emergencies, such as broken or knocked-out teeth. Using modern techniques and technologies, we can repair damaged nerves, stop excessive bleeding, and even put the jaw back in place after it has been broken.

What Is Emergency Dentistry?

Emergency dentistry is a specialty field that focuses on treating problems that cannot wait for an appointment. These are issues that cause immense pain, suffering, discomfort, or inconvenience. They also tend to have a time limit for when they need to be fixed before they cause more serious issues.

During an emergency dentistry meeting, our staff will examine the issue and apply restorative treatments designed to resolve the situation and alleviate pain. They then create a customized treatment plan for you that focuses on ensuring you return to optimal oral health and wellness.

What Counts As a Dental Emergency?

So many people in the United States worry about wasting resources or taking away treatment from someone else, meaning that many often avoid emergency dentistry because they think their situation isn’t severe enough. For many, this often isn’t the case, as there are many situations that require a helping hand. If you are experiencing one of the following scenarios, you need emergency dentistry:

  • Having a permanent tooth knocked out
  • Cracking or breaking a tooth
  • Severe bleeding from the tongue, gums, or other soft tissues
  • Injuring your jaw
  • Intense pain anywhere in the mouth
  • Infection of the tooth or gums

When a person’s chief complaint is pain, it often is to the point where eating, drinking, or speaking become uncomfortable.
