What if I am having a dental emergency?
Dental emergencies can be painful, and they are definitely stressful. RT Dental is here for you when you need us most as we offer morning, evening, and Saturday appointments to accommodate our patients and handle emergencies.
Some common dental emergencies you should call your Nutley dentist for include:
- A tooth that has been knocked out
- A tooth that is causing severe discomfort or a toothache
- Lost or broken restorations such as a dental filling or crown
- Broken or chipped teeth
- Soft tissue injuries
If you are unsure whether or not you are experiencing a dental emergency, please contact RT Dental anyway. We are happy to assess your situation over the phone to determine the best course of action. If you need immediate attention, we make every effort to see our emergency patients the same day, and we can provide treatment in many cases.
We do encourage patients to call our office first in a dental emergency rather than seeking treatment at a hospital or emergency room. Unfortunately, an emergency room is not equipped to handle most dental emergencies, and it is likely they will send you back to your Nutley dentist. So please save yourself the time and stress and contact our office first in the event of a dental emergency.
