Emergency Dental Services
What Emergency Dental Services Are Available in Denton?
The dentists in Denton provide emergency services in order to ensure you can achieve the pain-free, healthy and beautiful smile that you deserve. Here are some of the treatments we provide:
Emergency Extractions: If you have a tooth that’s broken or severely damaged by decay, our dentist will evaluate your situation. Sometimes, there is too much damage to save the tooth and an emergency tooth extraction is necessary. We make the extraction process as comfortable as possible by administering an anesthetic.
Emergency Wisdom Tooth Extractions: Wisdom teeth are also called third molars. They can be the source of intense tooth pain if they become impacted and don’t grow in properly. If you are experiencing pain that’s related to a wisdom tooth, please call us to discuss an emergency wisdom tooth extraction.
Root Canals: If you have dental pain that seems to be concentrated toward the roots of a tooth, the tooth’s pulp might be infected. Our emergency dentists can perform a root canal to clean out the damaged pulp and save the affected tooth.
Root Canals for Children: If your child has a damaged tooth, a root canal can save that tooth and preserve your child’s healthy smile.
Tooth Extractions: We perform standard tooth extractions with careful attention to our patient’s comfort and wellbeing, providing high-level care that our emergency patients can depend on.
Do I Need Emergency Dental Treatment?
Several symptoms and conditions affecting the teeth or mouth need attention without delay. If you have any of the following troublesome signs or conditions, call our office to make an appointment with an emergency dentist in Denton.
Abscessed Teeth: A dental abscess is often the result of an infection below the gum line. This painful condition is a common reason for seeking emergency dental treatment. The infection must be resolved immediately to avoid complications.
Cracked or Broken Teeth: Teeth that are cracked or broken are more likely to become decayed or infected than healthy teeth that are in good shape. Call us to schedule an appointment as soon as possible to protect the health of your teeth.
Fractured or Broken Jaw: If your jaw feels stiff, won’t open or close properly, or seems misaligned, it could be fractured or dislocated. Jaw issues usually heal well if they receive timely treatment. Don’t put off getting emergency dental care if you think you may have a fractured or broken jaw.
Lost, Broken or Loose Crowns: A lost or broken tooth restoration or crown negatively affects your appearance and leaves the tooth without the protection it needs. Our dentists can install temporary replacement crowns or reattach loose ones.
Dental Infections: Facial swelling is a common sign of a dental infection. The infection could be in the tooth, bone or gum. Seek emergency care right away because infections can quickly progress and even become life-threatening.
Knocked-out Teeth: Experiencing a knocked-out tooth is very upsetting. However, stay calm and seek dental care immediately. It’s possible that your tooth can be saved. Call us for advice and an emergency appointment.
Loose or Lost Fillings: If you have a lost or loose filling, it’s best to get it replaced before bacteria can enter the tooth and cause decay.
Severe Gum or Facial Swelling: Swelling of the gums and face is often a sign of a dental infection. Visit a dentist immediately for diagnosis and treatment.
Severe Toothache: Severe pain in a tooth is unlikely to go away on its own. Don’t suffer longer than necessary. Call our office for emergency treatment, and get the pain relief you need.
