What is a dental emergency?

Emergencies are unpredictable, and no one knows when one might arise. This is true for dental emergencies as well. Thanks to the team at Alpha Plus Dental Center, patients in the area of Brookline, MA, have access to immediate dental care when they need it. Our dentists are here to provide individuals with same-day service whenever possible. A dental emergency is a dental situation that occurs without warning and may require attention as soon as possible. Examples of dental emergencies include:

  • Fractured teeth
  • Severe toothaches
  • Severe gum disease/injuries
  • Tooth loss
  • Foreign items lodged in or around teeth, causing pain
  • Broken restorations, including fillings and dentures

Situations such as this may require patients to seek assistance from a dental professional to address the problem as soon as possible. Many dental concerns should not be avoided, and treatment not delayed as this can negatively impact one’s oral health. Undetected or ignored conditions can become worse and endanger your health.

I drive over an hour from Cape Cod for all my dental work because Dr. Kovtun is one of the few Biological dentists around. Not only is he a master at dentistry but he offers a healthier holistic approach to oral health that is so important to me. Often times, conventional dentists overlook at the importance or how oral health effects the entire body. He and his staff are super nice and I'm glad I found them!! Read More

Have been a patient here for quite a while now. It was hard to find a dentist that I trusted in the area, but I've really enjoyed this practice. They tend to be conservative with their assessment, which I really value - no unnecessary treatments, and my teeth feel and look great. Read More

Dr. Kovtun is great. I chipped my 7-year molar, and he was able to fit me in the very next morning! He safely, quickly, and painlessly removed my old amalgam filling and prepped my tooth with a temporary fix while I wait for a beautiful new permanent one. He is knowledgeable, informative, and accomodating. The staff is super-competent and friendly. I will definitely be scheduling other dental procedures here. Excellent, excellent, excellent!!
