Emergency dental services when you need urgent care in Quincy, MA
Life is unpredictable, and dental emergencies can strike at any time. Whether it is from a hit to the face while playing sports, an accident around the house, or a sudden pain in a tooth or your gums, having someone you can call when you or a loved one need urgent dental care can provide you with peace of mind. At the dental practice of Dr. Stephen Matarazzo, DMD, we understand the importance of getting urgent dental issues treated and provide emergency dental services to patients in Quincy, MA and surrounding areas.
Types of dental emergencies we treat
Few things can stop life in its tracks like a dental emergency, which is why we offer same day appointments for patients who need urgent care and even give Dr. Matarazzo’s cell phone number to patients so they can easily reach him outside of regular business hours. Some of the types of dental emergencies we treat include:
- Knocked out tooth
- Broken or fractured tooth
- Tooth pain
- Facial swelling
- Bleeding in the mouth
- Infection or abscess
These are just some of the more common dental emergencies we treat. Many patients suffer needlessly for a long period of time with dental pain or other issues before calling a dentist. If you are unsure about whether your dental issue constitutes an emergency visit, just call us! We will listen to your symptoms and help you determine how quickly you need to come in for treatment. In some cases, Dr. Matarazzo might also prescribe you a pain medication or antibiotic to take to help ease your symptoms or start treating an infection right away until you are able to see us in person. In other cases, we may advise you that seeing an emergency medical professional is a better choice, such as bleeding that can’t be stopped or if you suspect that you have a broken jaw.

Knowing that you have an emergency dentist you can trust will prevent you from the stress of scrambling to find an “emergency dentist near me” when a dental emergency strikes.
