About Dental Emergencies

Trying to find urgent help for a dental emergency is often a worrisome, painful situation. Sudden dental emergencies may be caused by athletic accidents, fender benders, stumbling over something, or even merely eating hard foods. Preston Hollow Dental Care and our highly skilled team offer timely emergency oral health care in a warmhearted environment. We are able to address a range of serious dental concerns for Dallas, TX patients, such as loose fillings, tooth pain, and dislodged or broken teeth. Oral injury won't necessarily result in pain right away, meaning it's necessary to have your mouth checked for any obscured trauma. At Preston Hollow Dental Care, we always do our best to offer emergency dental care as soon as we can.

Candidates for Emergency Dental Care

Everyone can encounter a dental emergency. Various kinds of emergencies include acute or chronic oral discomfort, knocked-out or cracked teeth, oral abscesses, loose restorations (such as fillings and crowns), gum bleeding or sensitivity, and any mouth-related injury. Getting the urgent dental attention you need as promptly as possible is the most effective method to reduce dental discomfort and safeguard your oral health. Sometimes, it could mean the difference between saving a tooth or not. Since even insignificant damage and sensitivity can indicate more extensive problems if not treated promptly, it is best to reach out to our office immediately for any type of dental emergency.

What To Expect During Your Visit

Needs regarding treatment for emergency dental concerns are unique for every situation. When you come for your appointment, we will carefully evaluate your individual issue before making a diagnosis. Full-mouth imaging could be needed to check for unobserved injury, for example, to the tooth roots and bone tissue. Once we fully learn the degree of your oral issue, we will discuss your needs for treatment. At Preston Hollow Dental Care, the primary purpose of an urgent dental visit is to help with tooth discomfort and detect injuries. We aim to restore the function, look, and general health of your smile as swiftly as we can. Despite that, follow-up therapies might be required.

Recovery Following Urgent Dental Care

At your visit at Preston Hollow Dental Care, someone on our professional staff will explain our advice on the best methods to care for your oral health, depending on your specific dental emergency. Our team might issue a prescription for an analgesic or for antibiotics to reduce inflammation. After your dental emergency is taken care of, our team can offer advice on how to safeguard your mouth from future trauma, which could include a custom nighttime mouth guard. Adhering to proper oral hygiene habits is essential while you recover. We will continue to keep an eye on your progress when you come in for your regular dental appointments.

Insurance Coverage for Emergencies

Portions of your dental emergency appointment may be taken care of by your dental insurance plan. Our highly knowledgeable business staff will help you in navigating your coverage and let you know of any likely outstanding expenses. To aide in making great dental treatment more affordable, Preston Hollow Dental Care is pleased to accept many types of flexible financial options.

FAQ ABOUT DENTAL EMERGENCIES

What is considered a dental emergency?

A dental emergency is an issue that needs immediate treatment to stop bleeding, alleviate severe pain, or save a tooth that may broken, cracked, loosened, or is knocked out. A dental emergency also applies to severe infections or an abscess in the mouth.

What should you do if you have a tooth knocked out?

If your tooth is knocked out, it is important to save the tooth so it can be reattached by your dentist. Handle the tooth by the crown, not by the root, which is the pointed part on the bottom. Touching the root of the tooth can damage important cells that are needed to reattach the tooth to the bone. Rinse the tooth off, keep it moist, and get in to see your dentist as soon as possible.


Is a toothache considered a dental emergency?

If you think you have an infection that stems from a toothache, you need to call your dentist to be seen so he/she can identify the source of your pain and if needed, treat the infection. You should not try to treat the infection yourself.

How can a dental emergency be avoided?

Dental emergencies can be avoided by taking simple precautions. If you play sports, wear a mouthguard to prevent teeth from breaking or being knocked out. Avoid eating hard or sticky foods that can crack or break your teeth.


Should I go to the emergency room for a dental emergency?

ER doctors, surgeons, and physicians do not practice dentistry. A visit to an emergency room for a dental issue like a toothache or knocked-out tooth may result in a temporary solution such as a prescription to treat pain and/or antibiotics along with a recommendation that you visit a dentist as soon as possible.
