Address Dental Issues | Waltham Dental Emergencies

Waltham area practice can offer help in a dental emergency


When a dental emergency occurs, it is important that families have a practice they know and trust to help them. Waltham, MA area patients can visit the team of NK Family Dentistry for immediate care and attention when the unexpected occurs. Drs. Vy Tran and Kirsten Lui are here to help new and existing patients when problems arise.


Emergency dentistry means patients have access to a dental professional when they need it. Instead of regular examinations which are often scheduled months in advance, emergency dentistry often requires same-day attention. The team of NK Family Dentistry leaves space in the day for these unexpected situations to ensure most patients can see someone within hours of their concern.


Emergency dental care is often described as a situation that needs immediate assistance or assistance within 24 hours of occurrence. This may include some of the following scenarios:


• A tooth that has been knocked out or injured

• A chipped or cracked tooth

• The loss of a restoration such as a veneer, crown, or bridge

• Damaged full or partial dentures

• A severe toothache that impacts daily life

• Signs of an infection that is causing extreme pain or discomfort

• Continued bleeding following an oral surgery

In serious incidences, patients may be advised to go to their local emergency room for immediate care. Our team can help direct patients on where to go depending on their specific needs.
