Wall Township Emergency Dentist
If you’re facing a dental emergency and require same-day treatment, notify our Spring Lake dental office immediately. Dr. Dooley and his team are dedicated to meeting the needs of our patients. Simply give us a call and speak with one of our helpful team members. We’ll be happy to listen to your needs and set aside a time for you to come in. Even if our office is closed, we’ll provide you with a way of contacting a member of our team.
Not every emergency requires same-day care, but for those that do, we’re happy to see you as soon as possible. Some of the most urgent dental emergencies include:
Have you just lost one of your permanent teeth? The first thing you should do—after notifying our office—is gently rinse your tooth and try putting it back into the socket it came from. If you’re unable to do this, store your tooth in your mouth or in a baggie of milk or water. This preserves your tooth until Dr. Dooley can see you. Same-day care is important in cases like this because reattachment may be possible if we’re able to see you quickly enough.
After notifying us of your needs, rinse your mouth gently and apply a cold compress to the affected area. A cold compress will help you prevent swelling.
Not every patient undergoing treatment for a crown experiences trouble with their temporary, but if your temporary has broken or fallen out, don’t hesitate to let us know. Temporary crowns are designed to help patients protect vulnerable teeth while a permanent restoration is manufactured.
In cases where a temporary has fallen out, it can be temporarily reattached with a small amount of toothpaste or denture adhesive. This is a quick-fix, so call us immediately for an appointment. Dr. Dooley would be happy to professionally reattach your temporary for you.
