Emergency Dentistry

When you have an emergency, the last thing you need is to wonder how and where you are going to get the relief you need.

At Northborough Family Dental, we always leave enough time in our schedule to see patients of record on an emergency basis. If you have a sports injury or a tooth is knocked out in an accident, time is of the essence because we have only hours to try to replace the tooth successfully.

Severe pain is another emergency where you need relief and you need it now. We will do everything possible to see you the same day because any pain is not normal, and severe pain is a sign that something serious is happening with your teeth.

If you have a lost crown or filling, we may not need to see you the same day. But we still need to address the problem promptly to protect your tooth from further damage. We can usually re-cement a crown back in place, but a lost filling will need to be replaced.

If you are having a dental emergency, please don’t hesitate to call us at (508) 393-2522, and a knowledgeable member of our team will be happy to assist you.
