  • Trauma to the jaw that results in discomfort
  • Loose or partially dislodged teeth
  • One or more teeth suddenly out of alignment
  • Loose or dislodged white filling
  • Loose, dislodged or broken dental crown
  • Signs of gum disease
  • An abscess or tender pimple on your gums
  • Any indication of tooth infection (see root canal)
  • TMJ symptoms

If you are facing one of these problems or need to know if you should schedule an emergency appointment, please call us at 781-396-8558 to speak to one of our helpful team members as soon as possible.

Again, if you have experienced significant trauma that has resulted in severe facial swelling, blood loss, loss of consciousness or other serious health problems, please visit an emergency room for immediate care.
