Dental emergencies are often painful and frightening. But if your first call is to Rockland Endodontics in Rockland County, you can rest assured that you’ll receive prompt treatment and gentle care. Our friendly staff will do everything possible to make sure that you are seen by our dentists immediately so that treatment can begin. The first priority of our Rockland County endodontists will be to alleviate your pain and then ensure that your tooth has the best possible chance of survival. Rockland Endodontics and our second location in New Jersey, Northern Jersey Endodontics are open six days a week, with extended Saturday hours. At our endodontic practices we can take of all dental emergencies, including traumatic injuries like tooth fractures, avulsed tooth, or cracked teeth.
If your tooth has been knocked completely out of your mouth, it is essential to see the Rockland County root canal specialists at Rockland Endodontics immediately. When a tooth is knocked out of your mouth, the mouth, tissues, nerves, and blood vessels become damaged. However, if the tooth can be placed back into its socket shortly after the incident, there is a strong possibility that the surrounding gum tissue will grow to support the tooth again. If you suffer from a traumatic dental injury that causes you to have an avulsed tooth, take the following steps: First, call Rockland Endodontics and request an emergency dental appointment. Second, pick up the tooth by the crown and rinse it under warm water. Avoid touching the root. Third, if it is possible and does not cause you pain, place the tooth back into its socket. If you can’t, tuck it into the cheek pouch or place it in a cup of milk, saliva or water. This will prevent the tooth from drying out. Fourth, visit Rockland Endodontics immediately for emergency dental treatment. While our dentists will first attempt to replace the tooth in its natural socket, in some cases, root canal therapy may be necessary if the inner mechanisms of the tooth were seriously damaged during the injury.
