Injuries happen, which is why Newton Centre Dental in Newton, MA provides emergency dental care. A few typical dental injuries are broken, chipped teeth, or teeth that have been accidentally knocked out. Incidents could be caused by chewing food that is too hard for your teeth to manage, an accident when playing sports, a bad spill, or a blunt-force trauma. You may or may not feel discomfort, but it is important to get your mouth assessed following an accident to correct any damage. At Newton Centre Dental, we'll consistently make your dental crisis a priority by offering fast care along with steps to protect against future issues.

"We could not be happier with Dr. Jonathan Stephens. From our first consult I knew he was the right person to extract my son's wisdom teeth. He was personable, easy to talk with, explained the procedure in detail, answered all of our questions, and had a positive friendly attitude. We never felt rushed in any way. On visit day, it was more of the same. We were made to feel welcomed, comfortable, and again Dr. Stephens reviewed the procedure, fielded my worried mom questions with clarity and professionalism while being warm and empathetic at the same time. He reviewed the x-rays with us, interacted directly with my son and made him feel comfortable. AND, he gave us his cell phone number, called that night to check on my son, and we have spoken 3 more times since. I would recommend Dr. Stephens without any reservation!"- D.D. / Healthgrades / Dec 24, 2020

At times, you will require emergency attention (a restoration or tooth falls out, you're in pain, or have a cracked tooth). In other circumstances, you might be uncertain about how fast you may require treatment (as an example, a loose tooth or recovery, an injury that does not result in bleeding or pain, or a chip in a tooth). Whenever you have a trauma to your mouth, such as your gums, teeth, and jaw, it is ideal to speak to our office. Our dental team will be able to help you determine when to come in, strategies to control pain, and also how to keep your tooth or dental restoration. Even seemingly minor injuries may result in larger issues if not handled as soon as possible; therefore, it's ideal to contact our office immediately.
What To Expect
Each dental crisis is different so we will thoroughly evaluate your mouth prior to making a diagnosis during your consultation. X-rays might be required to look for additional conditions. After we understand the degree of your problem, we will speak with you about your options and develop your treatment program. You might require one or a number of visits to restore your mouth.
Following your treatment, we can offer you directions that will help you recover following your procedure at Newton Centre Dental. We can give you a prescription for pain medication or antibiotics, which needs to be used as directed. We may also tell you if you should make an appointment for a different treatment or a follow-up examination. You can also speak with us about methods to prevent potential accidents, including a custom-made mouth guard that should be worn during contact sports. You need to continue to stick to a regular home oral hygiene routine with flossing and brushing to help keep your gums and teeth healthy and strong. During your yearly dental examination at Newton Centre Dental, we will continue to observe your recovery progress.
If you are using dental insurance, we'll contact your provider to confirm your coverage after we have established your treatment program. For those not using insurance, Newton Centre Dental takes several payment methods and we can help you get low-interest financing to help make your care easier to afford. Do not delay handling a dental crisis due to concerns over price since waiting might lead to larger and more serious issues.
