If your child is experiencing a life-threatening emergency, please call 911 immediately.
Managing common dental emergencies.
Any dental problem that causes severe pain or bleeding is a dental emergency. These dental problems can arise from accidents or dental diseases such as tooth cavities and gum disease.
Here are the most common causes of dental emergencies in children and the immediate measures you can take to manage them. Get in touch with us as soon as possible to provide you emergency dental care.
Not all toothaches are emergencies. However, food particles can get trapped between teeth and cause pain in the gums. In that case, you can floss your child’s teeth gently to remove food particles, then clean the affected teeth and rinse with warm water. If the pain persists after this, do not hesitate to call us for assistance. Common signs of toothaches that can be considered emergencies include, persistent pain that worsens with time, fever, headaches and inflammation.
Bitten Cheeks, Lip, or Tongue
Severe pain and bleeding in bitten cheeks, lips, or tongue may warrant emergency dentistry in Fort Lee, New Jersey. Consider using a cold compress to soothe the pain, swelling, and bleeding. Rinse the area, and contact us if the bleeding still persists.
Broken or Fractured Jaw
A fractured or broken jaw can be extremely painful, especially if the fracture is near the joints. The first step you need to take is to immobilize it to prevent movement. Moving a fractured jaw can cause more damage and increase bleeding. Next, use a cold compress to prevent swelling in your child’s cheek and seek medical help immediately.
If a single tooth or several of your child’s teeth are knocked out, you need to seek medical attention immediately. Pick your child’s tooth, preserve it in milk or saliva and bring it to our dentist directly. While handling the tooth, ensure to hold it by the crown and not the root.
Accidents leading to dental emergencies are unpredictable most of the time. However, we can manage dental emergencies caused by dental infections before they become severe. Bring in your child regularly for examinations and evaluations to catch dental problems before they become emergencies. You can also reach out to us for emergency dentistry in Fort Lee, New Jersey.

I started my Spark treatment at Beam City Dental with Dr. Jason Lin. I read multiple reviews online prior to my visit that Dr. Lin is well experienced with such treatments, and from the way Dr. Lin walked me through the process, I felt confident that I will be satisfied with my results. He assured the process will go on until I am fully content. On my first visit, I got a 3D scan of what my teeth will look like after the given duration, and was able to receive my first set of trays on my second visit. After I had the bondings attached to my teeth, I noticed what seemed to be a minor gap in one of them. I called the office to ask if that's ok, and they suggested I come in to get it fixed. I was able to immediately schedule an appointment, and Dr. Lin was kind to explain it doesn't pose an issue, but he re-did it for my peace of mind. I would recommend this dentistry and Dr. Lin to anyone looking to get orthodontic treatment. The nicely decorated office and friendly staff members also add to an amiable wholesome experience.

Highly recommend for orthodontics. From start to finish, I was welcomed by an excellent team, both professional and friendly. I received my Invisalign treatment from Dr. Lin last year, who was very detailed and answered any questions I had. The place was clean all around and had a great atmosphere all around, great vibes from the people!
“Highly recommend for orthodontics”
I can’t express how pleased my wife and I were bringing our two young daughters to Beam City. Every single person who worked there showed such kindness to our daughters. They were gentle, patient, and loving. The bedside manner of the doctors was incredible. I am thrilled that we found such a wonderful place for our daughters. We highly recommend it!
“Gentle, patient, and loving”
What a wonderful experience. The facility is amazing, their technology is awesome, but the doctor and staff take the cake. Amazing bedside manner, care compassion and skill. Emma was treated like a queen and they handled any moment where she was a little scared or unsure in the most caring of ways. What a great practice.
“What a wonderful experience!”
The team at Beam City Dental were friendly and amazing. Brought my 3 yr old for her first dental appointment and she left happy and proud of herself. The visit could not have gone any better!
