Emergency Dentistry

Dental problems aren’t always predictable. Whether you have a broken tooth, loose crown or sudden toothache, we can handle your dental emergency at Atlantic Dental Partners. Our ability to provide full-service dentistry and convenient scheduling means that we can address your unexpected dental concerns promptly and correctly. Our dentists are not only gentle and compassionate, but they have extensive experience in both restorative and cosmetic dentistry, with special training in complex cases involving dental implants. This gives patients confidence that their emergency treatment will be performed with careful attention to the health, function and aesthetics of their smile.

If you are suffering from tooth pain or a dental-related injury, we want to know as soon as possible. Neglecting or delaying a dental emergency could lead to worsening dental problems, further pain and more costly procedures. At Atlantic Dental Partners, we have everything you need to restore your smile comfortably and quickly. In fact, our Malden and Jamaica Plain offices are equipped with the latest dental technology available. From our high-tech dental lasers and same-day crown technology to our computer-controlled anesthesia wand and more, we can provide a streamlined and stress-free visit.

To make ourselves more available to our patients for urgent dental treatments, we proudly offer extended weekday appointments including late evening hours. We also realize the importance of helping you afford the unbudgeted dental procedures your smile may need during emergency care. Along with our expansive list of insurance acceptance, Atlantic Dental Partners also offers flexible payments options and monthly financing plans. We want to take away your anxiety over a dental emergency, not add to it.

What should I do when a dental emergency occurs?

Should a dental emergency arise in your household, the first thing we ask patients to do is to get in touch with our team right away by giving our office a call. This allows us to assess the situation over the phone and advise. If we determine that the situation requires immediate assistance, we will change our schedule and begin preparing a treatment room. If it’s decided that the situation is not an emergency, we will be happy to get an appointment scheduled for a later date. If you are unsure whether emergency dentistry is required and you would like to speak to a dental professional, our friendly team would be happy to assist.

What are some examples of dental emergencies?

While it can sometimes be difficult to determine whether something is an emergency or not, there are a few scenarios that are always considered dental emergencies. If a tooth is knocked out for example, you must visit a dentist as soon as possible before the tooth dies and cannot be reattached. Other common dental emergencies include:

  • Cracked or Broken Tooth
  • Dental Abscess
  • Uncontrollable Bleeding or Swelling
  • Unbearable Pain
  • Lost Dental Restoration

Is emergency dentistry covered by insurance?

Some dental insurance plans offer full or partial coverage for emergency dental services and some do not, so it’s important to check with your provider before an emergency occurs to see exactly what is covered. If you don’t have insurance, our Atlantic Dental Partners Gold Plan includes one emergency visit per year, so you can get the care you need when you need it. We also accept payment plans through CareCredit® for patients who need a way to break up the cost of their emergency care. Whatever you decide to do, we always recommend seeking treatment right away for a dental emergency, and our knowledgeable team can help you with the financing you care afterward.
