Dental emergencies can be frightening and disruptive. At Peak Family Dentistry, we want to help you through these situations as soon as possible.

Dental emergencies may include:

  • Toothache
  • Jaw pain or swelling
  • Broken tooth
  • Broken restoration

Our goal during your dental emergency in Hackensack is to stop the pain and stabilize your situation. In some cases, we complete your treatment on the same day. In other cases, if you’re out of pain and there is no threat to your smile, we may schedule a follow up to complete treatment.

The best way to avoid future dental emergencies is to visit your Hackensack dentist regularly for exams and cleanings. You also want to brush and floss your teeth at least twice per day. It is also crucial to schedule an exam if you experience tooth sensitivity that does not go away or other oral health changes.
