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
  • Toothache
  • 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.


Always follow up with your emergency dentist in either Groton or Willimantic to ensure that no further treatment is needed after you are seen for a visit. Follow any preventative care, precautionary procedures, or post-care instructions given by your dentist to ensure that you don't have any further problems. If you do, contact us as soon as possible.
