Accidents happen, which is exactly why our skilled dental team offers emergency dental care at our office in Springfield, MA. Some common oral injuries are cracked, broken, and knocked-out teeth. Incidents may happen when biting or chewing food that's too tough for your teeth to handle, a mishap while playing sports, a bad fall, or a blunt-force injury. You may or may not feel pain, but it's important to have your mouth checked after an injury to look for hidden damage. At People's Dental, we will constantly make your dental emergency a priority by providing effective treatment and methods to prevent future problems.
"Doctor Soares and her team are excellent The dental hygienists. Randy and Odessa are very professional, and do a great job. FREE parking is a PLUS!"- T.T. / Google / Aug 20, 2020
"From the time I walked in both Maura & Bonnie were helpful in making my visit comfortable. From there I met with Odessa for my cleaning and X-Ray. I hadn't been in some time and she made me feel at ease in the chair and did a wonderful job. After X-Ray it was told to me by Dr. Soares that I had a cracked filling. She was great!!! They told me that I needed to reschedule for that to be addressed. I had asked if I could stay and get it done and after looking at the schedule told me they could take care of it that day!! I waited a very short period and they replaced the filling. No pain and what a great job she did with Yuliya assisting! The whole team from start to finish was great! I initially did NOT want to go to the dentist but It ended up to be the "Best experience" I have ever had at the Dentist."- C.O. / Google / Mar 01, 2020

At times, you will need emergency care (a tooth or restoration comes out, you are in pain, or your tooth is cracked). In other circumstances, you may be unsure how quickly you need treatment (for example, a loose tooth or restoration, a trauma that doesn't cause pain or bleeding, or a chipped tooth). When you experience an injury to your mouth, including your teeth, gums, and jawbone, it's best to get in touch with our office. Our team can help you decide how quickly to come in, methods to manage pain, and how to preserve your tooth or restoration. Even seemingly minor injuries can cause bigger conditions if not treated right away, so it is best to contact our office immediately.
What To Expect
Every dental emergency is unique, so we will carefully assess your problem before making a diagnosis at your appointment. Digital images may be necessary to check for unseen conditions. Once we understand the extent of your condition, we will talk to you about options and create your treatment plan. You may need one or multiple procedures to restore your oral health.
Based on your issue, we will give you instructions to help you heal after your treatment at People's Dental. We may write you a prescription for antibiotics or pain medication that ought to be taken as directed. Our team will also tell you if you need to schedule an appointment for another procedure or a follow-up exam. Once your dental emergency is handled, you may speak with us about ways to prevent future injuries, including a custom mouth guard to be worn while playing sports. You must continue to adhere to a daily, home oral care regimen with brushing and flossing to keep your teeth and gums strong and healthy. During your annual dental exam at People's Dental, we will continue to keep an eye on your healing progress.
For patients with dental insurance, we will contact your provider to find out your benefits once we have created your treatment plan. For those without dental insurance, People's Dental accepts multiple payment methods and we can help you find medical financing to make your treatment more affordable. Don't delay treating a dental emergency because of concerns over cost, because waiting could lead to bigger and more expensive problems.
