Do have a 24/7 line that patients can call us on and we respond immediately. We'll address it as fast as we can in the timeframe that the patient calls.

What Is a Dental Emergency?
Here are some common dental emergencies that trusted Wellesley, MA dentist Dr. Jeff Tocci treats.
- Cracked Teeth – A cracked tooth is only one accident away from becoming a much more serious condition. Dr. Tocci may suggest tooth bonding, a dental veneer, or a dental crown to repair the crack.
- Broken Teeth – A broken tooth, besides being very painful, opens your tooth up to the possibility of infection. Eating with the tooth is almost impossible, and the pain will make it hard to get through the day. Call right away to see if a crown can help you.
- Infected Teeth (Toothache) – An infected tooth puts more than your smile at risk. If left unchecked, the infection could enter your bloodstream. Dr. Tocci can provide treatments to get rid of the infection and restore your oral health.
- Missing Teeth – The longer a dislodged tooth is outside of your mouth, the harder it is for us to put it back where it should be. The first thing you need to do is call our office. Next, find the tooth and rinse it. Finally, put the tooth in a glass of milk to keep it alive while you drive to see Wellesley, MA dentist Dr. Tocci.
