If you’re experiencing tooth pain, have a broken or knocked-out tooth, or have any other worrying symptoms, we recommend you contact our team immediately. We offer emergency dentistry in Framingham, MA and can treat a comprehensive range of non-life-threatening dental issues conveniently in our own office. We will do our best to provide care on the same day of your emergency or as soon as possible the next day.
Suffering severe damage to a tooth from an accident or injury should be treated immediately. Minor chips and cracks can wait, but if you have broken or fractured a tooth, you can experience more than extreme tooth pain. Damage may be inside the tooth as well as outside and will need immediate attention from our dentists.
Tooth pain that does not go away is generally a sign that infection is present, sometimes inside your tooth. Extreme tooth sensitivity or sharp pain when you bite or chew can also indicate an emergency dentistry situation involving your tooth root. These cases often require root canal therapy to resolve symptoms.
Dislodging or losing a tooth (not involving baby teeth during the time they naturally fall out) can cause extreme pain and sensitivity. We can sometimes save your natural tooth if you arrive at our office within 30 minutes of the accident occurring. If your tooth cannot be saved, we can replace it permanently with a life-like dental implant.
If you’ve noticed your gums are consistently red and tender and bleed when you brush and floss, come to our office immediately. These are common symptoms of gingivitis, the first stage of gum disease. If treated in this stage, gum disease can be resolved, but prolonged symptoms can cause irreversible damage.
