Emergency Dentistry

Are you having dental issues that must be taken care of immediately? Have you recently been involved in an accident or had a sports-related injury that requires emergency attention from a dentist? If so, you should know about the benefits of emergency dentistry services.

At Dr. Yeh and Associates, our Bloomfield, Montclair emergency dentists provide respectful, quick, and efficient treatments for dental emergencies like broken teeth, abscesses, lost fillings, and more.

Urgent Dental Care Should Not Wait

While it’s wise to schedule regular dental cleanings and checkup appointments twice a year, a dental emergency is impossible to predict. Compared to many non-same-day dentists, the way that our emergency dentists schedule emergency dental care is a little different. Dr. Yeh and Associates offer extended hours to increase scheduling potential at our emergency dental clinic near Montclair, Verona, and Nutley.

That said, all dentists have specific operating hours. So, it’s strategic to call ahead and check availability by calling (973) 338-9595 (rather than randomly showing up at our walk-in dentist’s office). Generally, we can see patients much quicker this way and, sometimes, even offer same-day dental appointments. 

Dr. Yeh and Associates offer Same-Day, Emergency Dental Care

A common misconception is that emergency dentists solely treat those suffering from dental trauma. However, our emergency dentists efficiently and effectively manage other urgent dental care concerns, including but not limited to the following:

  •         Emergency Tooth Extractions
  •         Tooth Pain and Extreme Sensitivity
  •         Jaw Pain
  •         Cracked Tooth Repair
  •         Loose Dental Restorations
  •         Knocked-Out Teeth

Above all, if you feel that your life is at risk, please visit an emergency room as soon as possible. Although we strive to schedule same-day dental appointments, an ER doctor can treat infection and pain symptoms and refer you to a local emergency dentist to receive proper treatment.

Additionally, feel free to read through our frequently asked questions about emergency dental services (and make sure to write and down and bring your other questions to your next dental appointment at our Bloomfield, NJ, dental office): 

1. How are emergency dentists different from general dentists?

Essentially, emergency dentists earn the same education and training as general, cosmetic, and family dentists. However, they offer specific treatments and scheduling to accommodate dental emergencies.

Generally, emergency dentists can see patients sooner than your run-of-the-mill general dentist and value the urgency of dental emergencies. 

2. I knocked out my tooth. What should I do?

Whether you’ve seriously chipped or knocked out your tooth entirely, you might be surprised that an emergency dentist can save it. If you’ve just knocked out your tooth, please pick it up the fragments or whole tooth (by the crown—not the tooth root) and preserve it in a glass of milk.
