 There are different types of dental emergencies that one could be experiencing and need expert help with. We have categorized some of these emergencies by severe dental emergencies and emergencies that should be treated at a scheduled visit.

Severe Emergencies

Below are a few severe emergencies that we recommend you get treated for immediately.


Knocked-Out Tooth: Although our teeth are very strong, there is a chance that with major physical trauma to the mouth, they could be knocked out. Most frequently this can happen when patients are participating in physical sports, we recommend using a mouth guard to protect your teeth. If your tooth has been knocked out, please try and locate the tooth and get in contact with us immediately. 

Broken Tooth: There is a significant difference between a tooth being chipped and broken. Broken usually means more than half the tooth has been broken off completely. Luckily due to restorative dentistry, in some cases, we can reattach the broken section back to the natural tooth.

Other Emergencies

We believe that anything that can harm the teeth or a tooth is a dental emergency. If you are suffering from any of the below emergencies, give us a call to let us know and schedule the earliest appointment you can.

Persistent Swelling & Bleeding of Gums

Our soft tissues or our gums are responsible for holding our teeth in their correct place, if there is a problem with your gums, we take it very seriously. Constant bleeding and swelling could indicate an infection in that section of your gum tissue. If handled quickly it can be reversed, if left alone it could cause serious damage to your smile.

Toothache or Abscesses


Although cavities can only be diagnosed by a dental professional, if you are experiencing sharp pain in one tooth for an extended period, there is a chance of decay.

Loose Adult Teeth


If one of your adult teeth has become loose please schedule an appointment. It is best to fix this problem before it becomes looser and could fall out.

At Beacon Dental Group, we take dental emergencies very seriously. Our job is to help you maintain a healthy and strong smile while fixing dental problems as soon as they arise. Please don’t hesitate to call or stop by our Boston, Massachusetts office if you believe you could be experiencing a dental emergency.
