Dental emergencies can occur any day at any time. In the case of dental emergencies in or near Worcester, Massachusetts, we strongly suggest that you visit us, Lee Family Dental Care, for the appropriate care as soon as possible. If you have a life-threatening emergency, seek emergency medical care by calling 911 or transporting yourself safely to an emergency room.
Pain, from a dental perspective, is never normal and should not be ignored. If you are experiencing any of the following, please see us at our Worcester office for emergency treatment right away:
Lee Family Dental Care provides dental extractions, root canals, tooth repairs, and treatments for oral swelling as part of our emergency dental services. Our goal is to help relieve your pain while diagnosing and treating any underlying factors so that the pain or problem is not recurring.
If you have lost a tooth or a piece of tooth, attempt to find and clean the pieces of teeth and bring it with you to Lee Family Dental Care. There is a small window of opportunity where a tooth may be placed back in its original position. If possible, keep these pieces in a glass of milk to keep them safe for restoration.
If you are experiencing pain or swelling, apply a cold compress or ice wrapped in a towel on the outside of your mouth. This will help reduce swelling while you get yourself to the Lee Family Dental Care office.
To regain a healthy smile as quickly as possible, call Lee Family Dental Care. If you cannot see a dentist right away, call our Worcester office to schedule an appointment and receive instructions for your specific dental emergency. If you have experienced a head or neck trauma, we also recommend that you see a general physician before seeing us, to ensure that there are no other serious conditions.
