Emergency Dentist for Williamstown, NJ
Dental emergencies can be frightening, inconvenient, and very sudden. If you or a loved one is struggling from severe oral damage or pain, don’t hesitate to contact iSmile Dental Arts as soon as possible. Dr. Wael Kassem welcomes walk-in emergencies, and we have a separate emergency phone line for patients to call if they’re in need of immediate assistance. In the meantime, our team members can provide you with guidance on how to manage your situation until you reach our Williamstown, NJ location. Here is some find valuable advice regarding a few of the most common emergency cases we see:
Knocked Out Tooth
Do you still have the tooth? Rinse it under warm water and carefully remove any foreign debris while doing your best to keep pieces of natural tissue intact. Then, place it back within its original socket. If this can’t be done, place the tooth in a plastic bag or cup of milk and bring it with you to our office. There, Dr. Kassem can determine whether or not reattachment is a possible option.
Rinse the tooth immediately with warm water. Some swelling may occur as you head to our Williamstown location, but holding a cold compress over the area can minimize any ill effects.
Is it possible you could have something stuck between your teeth? Rinse your mouth and then floss around the affected tooth thoroughly. Do not use sharp objects to remove any foreign debris and do not place an aspirin on the tooth. If the discomfort persists, contact our team at iSmile Dental Arts right away for assistance.
If you’re facing a possibly broken jaw or significant oral bleeding that shows no signs of stopping, please go straight to the nearest emergency room for assistance. Dr. Kassem and the rest of our team can then provide reconstructive care later on if you lost or damaged one or more teeth during the incident.
