What Are Dental Emergencies?
Searching for urgent help during a dental emergency can be an inconvenient, painful hassle — on top of the stress you may already be feeling. Unforeseen dental emergencies might be a result of sports mishaps, physical altercations, stumbling over something, or merely eating crunchy foods. Our dedicated dental team offers prompt emergency dentistry in an attentive environment. We are able to address many kinds of serious dental problems for Wellesley, MA, and surrounding area patients, such as damaged fillings, oral pain, and dislodged or fractured teeth. Tooth trauma won't necessarily trigger oral pain right away; therefore, it's crucial to get your mouth checked for any unknown damage if you experience facial trauma. At Wellesley Aesthetic Dental Group, we always strive to provide emergency dental care as quickly as we can.
When Is Emergency Dental Care Needed?
Patients of any age can develop a dental emergency. Common emergencies include sudden toothaches, dislodged or fractured teeth, developing an abscess, broken restorations (including crowns and bridges), oral bleeding or sensitivity, and other tooth-related injuries. Seeking out emergency dental treatment as promptly as possible is the most effective way to relieve dental pain and maintain your oral health. Sometimes, it can be the deciding factor between keeping and losing a tooth. If you're unsure if you've experienced a dental emergency, we'd rather you err on the side of caution and give our office a call so we can determine if you should come in right away.

Second root canal I have had with her. She is terrific!!
Today was my first experience with Dr. Rafla and his wonderful, efficient, but most of all kind staff. I went to this very much dreaded appointment with no idea of what to expect. My poor teeth are so sore and they are making everything difficult. I have horrible gagging reflex which makes everything harder for those that are trying to take x rays to be able to guide me into having a proper diagnosis and treatment. Trust me when I say I was a difficult patient. I expected the doctor to say there wasn’t much hope for them. Instead after reviewing what I was giving him to work with he listed off the perfect game plan. All aspects would be easier on me and my issues and seem to offer a perfect solution. I hope Coach Bill Belechick has competition in writing a game plan. Dr Rafla can give him a run for his money. In no time at all Dr. Rafla had a plan devised to ease my pain and fix the pockets in my gums. I am anxious now to correct these problems and move forward with the plan Thank you Dr. Rafla and team for being both gentle and kind with me today.
I had a few root canals done at my dentist and then the teeth cracked and needed to be extracted. I lived with the missing teeth till I found Dr Rafla and he explained that I needed a bone graph since it they had been missing so long..that took six months for the bone to regenerate and give him the depth for the implants...the implants were painless and done correctly I have been going back to them for 2 yrs to monitor the implant, check my receding gums and get a extensive cleaning every 6 months. I was then able to go back to my doctor and get Invisalign treatment. Without Dr Rafla this would not be possible. Yes I could have bought a new car, but I also could have had dental problems the rest of my life..I now don't worry and my smile is straight again.
I had a root canal with Dr. Marta Rafla. She and everyone I've worked with in her office is incredibly nice, considerate, and professional. My root canal was quick and painless too! I was so very happily surprised with how pleasant my entire experience was. I don't usually rate and review on Google, but this office deserves the public recognition!
