Why Emergency Dental Care?
Dental problems can be painful, especially when you have a dental emergency or the pain comes on suddenly and acutely. Toothaches can start small and worsen quickly. Accidents can happen at any time. And we often face dental care emergencies at times when finding an open dental office in Massachusetts is challenging, like:
- after business hours
- late at night
- over the weekend
No matter when an emergency happens, it's essential to take care of them as soon as possible.
What to Expect
If you have a dental emergency, call us. We can see emergencies same-day and are open evenings and on weekends. While there is not much you can do to prepare for an emergency visit, be sure to arrive as soon as possible and be ready to discuss your problem.
In preparation for your visit, you may be in a lot of pain. To try and reduce your pain as much as possible, here are a couple of suggestions:
- Take pain medication or an anti-inflammatory drug to reduce swelling, pain, or a fever.
- Apply pressure and gauze to stop bleeding.
The length of your visit depends on what you are being seen for. Some emergencies can be resolved in a matter of hours, while others may take a longer amount of time to fix. Here are some examples of the top 7 dental emergencies:
- Chipped, cracked, or missing teeth
- Tooth or Gum Abscess
- Mouth pain
- Bitten/cut tongue or cheek
- Broken braces wires or brackets
- Jaw pain and other dental emergencies
Regardless of what you are being seen for, you will be taken care of in the best way possible. By the end of your visit, you should have relief from some, if not all, of your pain.

Making An Appointment Is Easy
Doctor Green is the Best! Very professional, lovely person and number 1 ! She is making every visit so memorable! Love to come to Groton dental group just to see her!
My experience with Tori was the best!!! She was super gentle with my teeth and even offered me some numbing gel when they were sensitive. I have never had someone so concerned with my comfort while cleaning my teeth. She’s the only one I trust with my teeth now!
I have had the best Dentist for 21 years, Dennis Flanagan, he is very good, extremely professional and a master with root canal, crown and implants. The stuff that works over there are very friendly and they have a lot of patience. They are the best in Groton.
I had an appointment last week but was running late. The staff was accommodating and friendly. Lisa was welcoming and helpful by assuring me I’d still get in to keep my appointment. Lisa as always went above and beyond. I’ve been a loyal patient for 5 years and love the staff and doctors.
Great dental office! I’ve been going here basically my entire life (over 30 years) and they have always been amazing! Friendly staff and great service!
Once again Dr Green hit the high marks for her caring gentle dentistry! I’m having my 2 front uppers capped after 70 years of use and she is able to make the process, if not enjoyable, at least as comfortable as possible. I enjoy that she shares the step by step with me and isn’t opposed to adding a little light humor.
Groton dental group is the most professional and courteous dental office I have ever had the experience of being a patient of. Dr. Dennis Flanagan and his entire staff are incredible! Thank you for making my dental work pain free and for giving me the confidence to smile in public once again
Absolutely love my Hygienist , Dentist and the entire staff. Never have a bad experience. Always take time to explain what is going on and willing to work with you on every level.
When you need emergency dental care...you call Groton Dental Group. Fast, efficient, caring, and professional.
Dr. Flanagan and Dr. Dougherty are kind and caring. They do not rush you and give you time to state your concerns. You leave with a smile. I would definitely recommend Groton Dental to everyone but especially to those with a dental phobia.
