As a premier dentist in Newburyport, MA, our dentist and dental care team provide a broad array of family, general, restorative, and cosmetic dentistry as well as emergency dentistry near you. If you’re currently experiencing an unexpected oral health concern and wonder whether it’s a dental emergency or something that can wait until our next available appointment, we invite you to call our office to learn more.
If a tooth has been knocked out due to impact or injury, we ask you to immediately call our office for instruction on what you can do at home in preparation for your appointment – whether it be an emergency appointment or instruction on what to do while you wait for our next available appointment. We know that breaking a tooth can be a traumatic experience, so we encourage you to contact us for immediate care instruction, which may include referring you to an emergency medical facility.
Dental fillings, crowns, and veneers can become loose and fall out or break from eating certain foods or being involved in an impact-related activity. Although these conditions are not typically as serious as a broken tooth, we still encourage you to call Newburyport Family Dental for instruction on best practices to manage the situation until you can be seen by our dentist.
If your gums bleed when you brush and floss your teeth, that’s a sign that you need to make an appointment to visit a dentist near you, such as the team at Newburyport Family Dental, but it’s unlikely you’re experiencing a dental emergency. When your gums bleed during your normal brushing and flossing, your body is trying to tell you that it’s time for a professional exam and teeth cleaning since build-up around your teeth is causing your gums to become sensitive. When you visit our dentist, you’ll also receive instruction on the best practices for brushing and flossing, so future gum bleeding – and dental emergencies — can be avoided.
Call us now to receive the information you need for your dental emergency in Newburyport, MA or to schedule a preventive dentistry appointment to minimize the chance that you’ll have a dental emergency in the future.
