Emergency Dentist

A dental emergency occurs without warning and can be quite alarming. If you have a dental emergency, it’s important to remain calm and follow these steps:

  • Call Our Office and Schedule an Appointment with Dr. Isaac Perle: We are available for emergency visits Monday through Thursday from 9 AM to 6 PM and Friday from 9 AM to 3 PM. We are closed on Saturday and Sunday. When you call to schedule the appointment, we’ll give you instructions to follow until you get into the office. Once you get here, Dr. Perle will examine your mouth to find out more about what is causing your dental emergency
  • Review findings and create a plan: Dr. Perle will go over his findings with you and explain your options for treatment and the ones that he recommends.
  • Get dental care: Once you have decided on your treatment plan, we’ll get started right away to ease your pain and preserve your smile. If you have anxiety about the procedure, we do have sedation options that will help you relax while we take care of your dental emergency.

A Dental Emergency Can Occur at Any Time

Even if you take good care of your teeth, unexpected problems can happen. Whether you miss an appointment to fill a cavity or break a crown unexpectedly, getting these problems taken care of right away can help keep you in good health. If you don’t, the problem can get worse, leading to more health problems. Getting emergency dental care at the first sign of trouble will repair damage to your teeth, heal infections, and make sure you have the healthy, beautiful smile you deserve.

Cost of Dental Emergencies

The cost of emergency dental services at Cambridge Dental Group is obviously going to be more expensive than a standard checkup. The final cost depends on a few factors, including the emergency itself and the treatment required. However, it’s important that you don’t let the cost prevent you from seeking treatment.

If you have a dental plan, that should cover most emergency procedures. Just give your information to the office staff and they will work with your insurance company to find out about coverage. We accept Cigna, Delta Dental, and Red Cross. At this time, we do not accept Medicaid or other state insurance programs.

We do accept cash, FSA, HSA, personal and certified checks, credit cards (Visa, Mastercard, Discover), debit cards, and CareCredit. CareCredit is financing option that covers healthcare-related expenses, including dental procedures. They offer financing plans with no interest and low monthly payments. Payment terms range anywhere from 3 months to 60 months. If you have a dental emergency, it will only get worse if you don’t have it taken care of immediately. The team at Cambridge Dental Group can help you determine your dental needs and find a way to make treatment more affordable.

Emergency Dental Services

Some dental services are more urgent than others. If left untreated, some conditions can lead to more serious health problems, including severe infections. Emergency dental problems may not always cause pain, but severe pain can be a good sign that you need to be seen and treated by an emergency dentist. Emergency dental problems can arise from a wide range of issues, including cavities, a broken tooth, or a bacterial infection, among others. While the underlying issue itself may not be serious, letting it go untreated can be serious. Most commonly, patients need emergency care for a root canal or tooth extraction.

Emergency dental services may include:

Preventing Dental Emergencies

If you’ve recently dealt with a dental emergency, you want to do what you can to prevent them in the future- not only the pain that you went through but the cost as well. While it’s almost impossible to completely prevent these issues, keep these 5 steps in mind to reduce risk of damage to your smile:

  1. Schedule regular check-ups and cleanings
  2. Follow good oral hygiene practices at home
  3. Eat a balanced diet
  4. Use a mouthguard when playing contact sports or while sleeping
  5. Don’t use your teeth as tools

The Importance of Emergency Dental Care

Sometimes dental problems occur suddenly, such as a broken tooth due to a sports injury or a broken filling when eating. Other dental problems occur when regular dental care is neglected, such as not getting a cavity filled when it begins. In either scenario, it is important to seek care from an emergency dentist right away. As with any part of your physical health, delaying dental care can result in further health problems. A cavity can result in a dental infection that can spread throughout the mouth. If you have a serious dental problem that requires emergency care, the best thing you can do is to take the earliest available appointment to get the problem taken care of. This will help prevent further problems and return you to better oral health.

Knowing if You Need an Emergency Dentist

Not every dental problem is an emergency. For example, a cavity can be filled at a regular appointment. Here are some things you can use to help determine whether you need emergency dental care or not:
  • You have severe tooth and/or gum pain
  • You have considerable tooth damage
  • You have a broken or knocked out tooth
  • You have a loose or broken filling or crown
  • You have a severe infection
  • You have an abscess

If you’re not sure whether your need qualifies as an emergency, it’s best to call and speak to an emergency dentist about your problem and the best way to fix it. If you have a dental emergency, you can schedule emergency dental services, such as for a root canal or tooth removal. If your problem does not qualify as an emergency, your emergency dentist can make recommendations to help you stay healthy until your regular appointment.

Whether you have a broken tooth, loose filling, or severe tooth or gum pain, your emergency dentist Brick, NJ is here to help. Call the Cambridge Dental Group to schedule an emergency appointment so you can stay in good dental health.


A. If you’re not sure whether your problem is an emergency, you can contact your emergency dentist. Typically, emergency appointments are used for broken or loose fillings or crowns, broken or knocked out teeth, severe gum and/or tooth pain, or considerable damage to a tooth. An abscess or severe infection may also be considered a dental emergency.
A. Call your emergency dentist Brick, NJ to schedule an appointment. You do not need to save any broken pieces or the lost tooth. Your dentist will replace the missing tooth or repair the broken tooth.
A. If you have damage that causes bleeding on your tongue, lips, or cheek, this is considered tissue damage. This will need to be treated by a physician or oral surgeon. You should go to a hospital emergency room or contact your primary care physician for an appointment, depending on the severity of the injury.
A. If you have a little time before your appointment, your dentist will give you recommendations for dental care until you come in for help. This may include carefully brushing your teeth, rinsing with warm water, or using a cold compress to reduce swelling. The care you need will depend on your dental problem.
A. Sometimes. Some dental emergencies come from injuries, such as a knocked out tooth or broken filling. Other dental emergencies arise from underlying problems that were not emergencies. For example, an untreated cavity can severely damage a tooth and become infected. The best way to prevent these kinds of emergencies is to take good care of your teeth and go to all of your routine dental appointments.

  • I had BriteSmile done. My husband had gone to Dr. Perle’s office for the same treatment; he’s gone a couple of time, so he actually referred me. I felt very confident they knew what they were doing. They were professional, the doctor was nice, and the woman who did it explained everything. It worked out very well. I would do it again.

  • My name is Aaron Bickel and they reattached a bridge that had fallen out. I found them to be knowledgeable about the procedure and he explained everything before he did it and did a good job and did what he needed to do. They got back to me very quickly which was good, it was at night on a Saturday. Everything went well. I would recommend them.
