If you’re experiencing dental pain and need an emergency dentist appointment, our South Weymouth dental office will find the earliest available appointment with Dr. Burt or Dr. Dadhania for you.
Tooth pain is excruciating and can interfere with every aspect of your life. Sleeping, working, going to school, and enjoying everyday life can be impossible when dental problems are causing you constant pain.
At South Shore Dentistry, we specialize in providing the best solutions to our dental patients and can often provide you with same-day or next-day emergency dentist appointment times to help you manage pain and ensure your oral health!
Do I Need To See An Emergency Dentist?
If you have experienced an oral accident resulting in a tooth being knocked loose, a filling being damaged or a tooth being broken, call South Shore Dentistry at our South Weymouth dental office immediately to schedule your emergency dental appointment.
Knocked Out Tooth
A knocked out tooth is a common dental problem. At South Shore Dentistry, we try to immediately take care of our patients who are experiencing this painful dental emergency.
Teeth can be incredibly strong, but they can still chip, break or crack as a result of trauma or decay. Remember, treating a broken tooth at home is not an option and can actually do more damage to your tooth. If you are suffering from a broken tooth, call our South Weymouth dentist office and schedule an appointment with Dr. Burt or Dr. Dadhania as soon as possible!
Broken Dental Filling
As advanced as modern dentistry is, broken fillings can still happen. The most important thing to remember is not to delay seeing Dr. Burt or Dr. Dadhania to get treatment for a broken filling.
Many teeth can start out with a small break and would only need a replacement dental filling, but the longer treatment is delayed, the bigger the problem becomes.
A dental abscess is an oral infection that can jeopardize the health of your teeth and gums. However, if treated immediately, these infections have an easy recovery process and can be prevented from causing lasting damage to your mouth.
After treating your dental abscess, our emergency dental team will likely prescribe an antibiotic to finish treating the oral infection and prevent further complications.
Are you experiencing tooth pain? Does it hurt to chew or when air touches your tooth?
The first step to take if you are suffering with persistent toothache (longer than a day or two) is to call South Shore Dentistry to schedule a complete emergency dental exam.
During your appointment, our emergency dentists will likely x-ray your tooth to help determine if a cavity, crack, abscess or other problem is causing your pain before discussing treatment options with you.
Preserving your natural teeth is always our goal at South Shore Dentistry. However, sometimes a tooth is severely damaged by trauma or decay and we have to recommend extraction.
Our emergency dental team will thoroughly explain the extraction process and answer every question you have to help put you at ease if you need to have a tooth extracted.
The first few moments after an oral accident are vital in determining if your recovery will go smoothly. Dental trauma due to an accident is common and can happen due to motor vehicle accidents, falls, sports injuries or physical altercations.
After your visit, you can continue your care with our comprehensive list of dental services.
