Accidents happen, which is exactly why Chestnut Hill Dental offers emergency dental care at our superior Chestnut Hill, MA facility. Common oral injuries may include cracked, broken, and knocked-out teeth and may occur when biting food that's too tough, during a mishap while playing sports, or from a bad fall or blunt-force injury. You may or may not feel pain, but it's important to have your mouth checked after an injury to look for damage that may not be obvious to the naked eye. At Chestnut Hill Dental, we will make your dental emergency a priority by providing effective treatment and solutions that prevent future problems.

You might need emergency care if a tooth or restoration comes out, you are in pain, or your tooth is cracked. In some cases, you may be unsure of how quickly you should seek treatment (for example, a loose tooth or restoration, a trauma that doesn't cause pain or bleeding, or a chipped tooth). When you experience an injury to your mouth, including your teeth, gums, or jawbone, it's best to contact our office. The dental professionals at our practice can help you decide how quickly to come in, methods to manage any pain, and how to preserve your tooth or restoration. Even smaller injuries can cause bigger conditions if not treated right away, so it is good to contact our office immediately.
What To Expect
Every dental emergency is unique, so one of our skilled dentists will carefully assess your problem before giving a diagnosis at your appointment. Digital images may be necessary to check for issues that aren't immediately obvious. Once our team understands the extent of your condition, we will discuss your options and create your treatment plan. You may need one or multiple procedures to restore your oral health.
Based on your issue, a member of our team may provide you with instructions to help you heal after your treatment. We may also write you a prescription for antibiotics or pain medication that ought to be taken as directed. We will let you know if you need to schedule another appointment for additional procedures or a follow-up exam. Once your dental emergency is handled, we may discuss ways to prevent future injuries, including custom mouth guards that can be worn while playing sports. You must continue to adhere to a daily home oral care regimen with brushing and flossing to keep your teeth and gums strong and healthy. During your annual dental exam at Chestnut Hill Dental, our team will continue to keep an eye on your healing progress.
For patients with dental insurance, we will contact your provider to find out your benefits once a team member has created your treatment plan. For those without dental insurance, Chestnut Hill Dental accepts multiple payment methods and can help you find medical financing to make your treatment more affordable. Don't delay treating a dental emergency because of concerns over cost, because waiting could lead to bigger and more expensive problems.
