We at Rotem Dental Care know all too well that life is full of surprises. Dental injuries can cause severe pain, prove hugely inconvenient, and need to be dealt with right away. For this reason, we provide emergency dentistry at our Toms River location.
Toms River Emergency Dentistry
Whether by accident or neglect, dental emergencies happen. Either way, Rotem Dental Care is happy to help. Because oral health problems can escalate quickly, we advise against waiting to see a dentist during business hours. Instead, we encourage you to take advantage of our emergency dentistry services as soon as you can.
Saturdays and Special Hours
Our emergency patients are very important to us, so we provide emergency services on Saturdays until 3:30 PM and during the evenings on select weekdays.
While many dentists only offer emergency services during regular office hours, we’re open until 8:00 PM Monday through Thursday. In addition to flexible hours, we at Rotem Dental Care have invested in the newest technologies for the safest emergency procedures.
How to Respond to a Dental Emergency
If you find yourself in the midst of an unforeseen dental emergency, call our office right away. Some examples of these include:
- Missing dental work like fillings or crowns.
- Broken or chipped teeth.
- Knocked-out adult tooth.
- Damaged dental work.
- Extreme tooth pain.
- An abscessed tooth.
Until you can come into our office, here are some ways you can manage your dental emergency at home:
- Apply an ice pack near the pain externally to reduce pain and swelling.
- Save broken teeth, missing teeth, or dental appliances in the mouth or in a plastic bag filled with milk, and bring them into the office when you visit.
- Carefully follow the directions written on over-the-counter pain relievers to stave off pain the meantime.
“I had a dental emergency. I called when I got home from work at 4:45. I am not even a patient there and have never been there, but they took me in right away. The whole staff is 5 star! I am scared of the dentist and was in a lot of pain. Everyone was awesome and made me feel comfortable. They took care of me and my dental issue. I can now say I’m a patient of theirs. I highly recommend Rotem Dental.”
