Emergency dentistry focuses on treating urgent, painful, and time-sensitive dental health issues. For example, if you have a serious toothache in Littleton, MA, you may need an emergency root canal to treat your tooth and restore your oral health.
Toothaches are the most common type of dental emergency, and are usually caused by tooth infections.

If you’re in pain, you can take acetaminophen or another over-the-counter medicine to help with your discomfort. Icing the cheek near the affected area may also help keep it numb. If your mouth is bleeding, you can use cotton balls, gauze, or a clean paper towel to apply pressure to the area and reduce bleeding.

Self-ligating braces appear almost identical to traditional braces, but utilize clips.

If you have damaged your tooth, you should first check if there is any bleeding. Your priority should be to stop the bleeding right away by biting down on fresh dampened gauze. Then, rinse your mouth to remove any tooth fragments that could be left behind.
You may need to apply a cold compress to the area and take anti-inflammatory pain medication to relieve pain and swelling. Look to see if there are any sharp edges from where your tooth broke that could cut the inside of your mouth.
If so, you should go to the pharmacy and place some dental wax that will smooth over the sharp edges and protect the inside of your mouth until you can get to the dentist.
In any case, don’t hesitate to contact us right away. For any pieces of your tooth that have broken off, we recommend that you store them in saliva or milk and bring them with you to the appointment so we can determine if they can be reattached.
If you have a knocked-out tooth, the first thing you want to do is locate the tooth if possible. Knocked-out teeth are time sensitive and have the best chance of being saved if you can get to the dentist within an hour of the tooth being knocked out.
If you locate the tooth, hold it from the crown and avoid touching the root. If the tooth is dirty, rinse it off under some water and then try to reattach it by firmly pressing it into the socket and biting down. If this is successful, get to the dentist right away so we can use a splint to stabilize the tooth.
If you cannot reinsert the tooth you will need to store it in saliva or milk and place it in a container that you bring to your emergency appointment.
Only try to reinsert a knocked-out adult tooth. If a baby tooth is lost prematurely, contact us right away but avoid trying to place the tooth back in the socket because this can damage the underlying permanent tooth. Children who lost a baby tooth too soon may need a space maintainer.
If dental work such as a filling, dental crown, or bridge has fallen out, you should contact us right away and let us know about any other symptoms you are experiencing. Losing a filling can lead to bacteria reaching the deeper layers of your tooth and the longer you wait, the greater risk you have of worsening decay or an infection.
Until you can get to the dentist you should clean the area with a lukewarm saltwater solution, locate the missing dental work so you can bring it with you to the dentist if you can find it, take anti-inflammatory pain medication to relieve discomfort, and avoid chewing on that side of your mouth.
If you can’t get to the dentist right away, you should go to the dentist to place a temporary filling that will protect the inside of your tooth from bacteria. If a crown has fallen off but the tooth underneath is still intact along with any fillings, you can gently brush the tooth with fluoride toothpaste.
If you have a loose adult tooth, this could be a result of dental trauma, gum disease, teeth grinding, or many other causes. You should contact us right away. Avoid touching the tooth as much as possible to prevent it from falling out. While the tooth is still attached, we have the best chance of saving it.
When a tooth is loose, you run the risk of exposing the tooth’s root to bacteria and becoming infected. Keep your mouth clean by carefully swishing around with a saltwater solution to remove bacteria and food particles from around the tooth.
You need to get to the dentist as soon as possible so we can stabilize the tooth. If you can get to the dentist within 24 hours of noticing that your tooth is loose, we have a better chance of salvaging it.
If you’re experiencing serious oral pain, discomfort, or bleeding, you need to get emergency dental care. You also may need emergency dental care if you notice other changes in your mouth, like a damaged dental crown or a missing dental filling.
