You never want to call an emergency dentist.
If you do, it probably means you or a family member has been in an accident or is experiencing a dental problem that needs to be addressed immediately.
At Beyond Dental Health, we want our patients to know that we have an emergency dentist who is available to help whenever you need it. Accidents frequently happen at night or on weekends when it’s not easy to get emergency care. But if you or a family member is experiencing a dental emergency, all you have to do is call our Abington, MA, office for immediate assistance 24 hours a day.
A dental emergency can be tooth pain, the loss of a filling or a crown or can be something much more serious such as a knocked out tooth, a broken tooth, or damage to the soft tissues of the mouth that include the tongue, lips, gums, and cheeks.
Patients who suffer serious injuries to the mouth and face have most likely been involved in an auto accident, a fall, collided with another competitor on an athletic field, or been hurt in some type of recreational activity.
In some cases, our emergency dentist may not be able to adequately treat more serious injuries and may recommend that the patient be taken to a local emergency room if more urgent dental treatment is necessary. In circumstances where a patient is experiencing blood loss because of an injury to the mouth, teeth, or gums or is suffering from concussion symptoms, they should be taken to an emergency room without hesitation.
If a visit to an emergency room is not necessary, the emergency dentist in our Abington office will walk you through possible at-home treatments and recommend over-the-counter medications that can be taken to alleviate pain, reduce swelling, and make it easier for the patient to relax and sleep.
If you or a family member has been injured at night, on a weekend, or on a holiday, our team will set up an appointment at our dental office as soon as possible. Emergency appointments can be scheduled on the day of an accident, but only if we have an available time later in the day, otherwise you’ll be scheduled first thing the following morning.
A dental emergency can be a stressful occurrence, but our team will do its best to ease any pain and get your smile back to 100% as soon as possible. Your overall oral health is important so don’t look online for treatment options if you are experiencing mouth pain or have suffered an injury. If damage to your mouth, teeth, gums is not treated quickly, other health problems can develop.
Schedule an appointment in our Abington office by calling (781) 878.0001 or visit us online to see the other services Beyond Dental Health provides. We also have three other South Shore locations for your convenience in Cohasset, Hanson, and South Weymouth.
