Any dental emergency can be upsetting, even if it’s a mild toothache. You know something is happening with your oral health that needs attention, but you may not be sure what steps to take next.
If you have a dental issue that just can’t wait, call Dr. Christopher Kaplan, your emergency dentist in Randolph. He and our experienced dental team can address any dental problem you’re experiencing and provide the compassionate treatment and prompt relief you need.
When Is a Dental Problem an Emergency?
In dentistry, a “true” dental emergency is any situation that requires immediate treatment to address swelling, relieve severe tooth pain, or to save a tooth. At Randolph Dental Associates, we want you to call us anytime you are experiencing something out-of-the-ordinary with your oral health. The sooner we can treat you, the sooner we can get you out of pain, restore your healthy smile, and get you back to your usual activities.
Our patients know they can contact us with any emergency, including:
- Tooth pain
- Bleeding, swollen, or inflamed gums
- Jaw pain or swelling
- A broken or fractured tooth
- Lost crowns or filling
- Dental abscess
- Tooth infection
- Dental trauma
The first step is to call our Randolph dental office at (973) 895-3100. We have staff members who have been with us for decades and know how to provide gentle reassurance and let you know we are here for you. They will ask about your symptoms to see if you need to come in right away, or if we can safely schedule you for our next available appointment.
The Most Critical Dental Emergencies
Certain dental emergencies require our immediate attention, including severe tooth pain, jaw pain or swelling, and infections or dental abscesses. The thing they all have in common is that they’re a sign that your oral health is in jeopardy. With office hours six days a week, including late evening and early morning appointments, there’s a good chance we can get you on our schedule the same day.
With dental trauma such as a knocked-out tooth, we may be able to re-implant it, but only if we see you within two hours or less after your accident. In this case, call us, so we know what’s happening and can prepare for your arrival. Make your way safely to our dental office.
