Emergency Dentistry - Merrimack, NH

In Pain? Call Us Now!

Dental emergencies, just like any other, always pop up suddenly and only at the worst of times. It can be hard to know what to do when you’re in the middle of one, but for the people of Merrimack, the plan is simple: stop, take a breath, and call Dental Designs of New England.

Dr. Shetty, Dr. Braga, and our entire team are ready to handle a wide variety of dental emergencies (more on this below). While you may be tempted to go to your local ER, we’re actually more experienced and better equipped to handle urgent dental issues, plus we’ll be able to see you much faster. When a patient calls us with an emergency, we always try to see them that same day. Our goal is to never leave anyone waiting in pain, so when you need help immediately, we’ll be there right when you need us.

Contact Us in Case of the Following Dental Emergencies:

  • Knocked out teeth
  • Partially dislodged teeth
  • Chipped, cracked, or broken teeth
  • Severe toothache
  • Damaged or lost dental work
  • Object stuck between the teeth
  • Injury to the lips, gums, or jaw
  • Pain or swelling in the face

Even if you are unsure whether or not your situation is an emergency, just give us a call anyway, and we’ll be happy to let you know what you should do next. However, if you suspect that a bone may be broken, or if someone has been bleeding uncontrollably for 15 minutes, be sure to head straight to your nearest emergency room first!

Quick Tips for Dental Emergencies

  • Always call us as soon as you can.
  • When recovering a lost tooth, only touch it by the crown and never the root.
  • Place a knocked out tooth either back into the person’s mouth or in a container of milk or saltwater until they can see us.
  • Have the victim gently rinse their mouth with warm water.
  • A cold compress can help lessen any pain or swelling.
  • An OTC medication can help with pain as well, but avoid aspirin, as this could actually make bleeding worse.
