What Exactly Is A Dental Emergency?
When you're experiencing unexpected or severe dental pain, it's crucial to be able to find professional care quickly. At Dr. Monica Gobran & Associates, we commonly see patients suffering from dental emergencies as a result of numerous traumatic events, including sports injuries, car accidents, or even simply trying to chew hard food. Led by Dr. Monica Gobran, our highly skilled staff provides timely emergency oral healthcare in a calm, welcoming environment. Some of the more common emergency dental issues we treat in Worcester, MA include tooth pain, compromised fillings, or broken/avulsed (knocked-out) teeth. A dental injury doesn't always cause pain; therefore, it's really important to have your teeth examined for any unknown trauma. At Dr. Monica Gobran & Associates, we always make every effort to provide emergency care as soon as we can.
How Does Emergency Dental Treatment Work?
Every patient who comes in for urgent dental treatment has their own unique needs. When you come for your appointment, Dr. Gobran will carefully assess your particular concerns before making a diagnosis. Tests may be ordered, such as digital x-rays to check the jawbone for signs of trauma. Once we understand the extent of your oral condition, we will review your choices for treatment. At Dr. Monica Gobran & Associates, the primary goal of an emergency appointment is to reduce tooth discomfort and help mend some of the damage (if any) that may have been done to the jaw. We aim to restore the function, appeal, and overall health of your teeth as soon as possible. Follow-up appointments may be necessary in some cases to monitor your recovery or make further repairs.

Emergency Dental Care FAQs
Can I call after hours for a dental emergency?
Yes, at Dr. Monica Gobran & Associates, we understand that dental emergencies don't always happen during regular office hours. While the specific protocol might vary, many dental offices, including ours, have an after-hours emergency line that you can call. Dr. Monica Gobran and her skilled team are committed to addressing your urgent dental needs as quickly as possible, and they'll guide you on what immediate steps to take until you can be seen by a dental professional.
What should I do if my child knocks out a tooth?
If your child has knocked out a tooth, it's crucial to act quickly. First, locate the tooth and keep the tooth moist by placing it in milk or a tooth-preservation product. Contact our office immediately for further instructions and to arrange emergency care. The sooner you can get professional treatment, the higher the chance the tooth can be saved.
Is it possible to prevent dental emergencies?
While not all dental emergencies can be avoided, some precautionary measures can reduce the risk. Wearing a mouthguard during physical activities or sports, avoiding chewing on hard foods that can crack or break your teeth, and maintaining regular dental check-ups to catch issues before they become emergencies can all help. Dr. Gobran will be happy to discuss these preventive steps during your regular appointments.
