Is This a Dental Emergency?

If you have any concern regarding the health of your teeth or gums and need answers from a professional you can trust, please do not hesitate to contact our office.

If you believe that you are experiencing a life-threatening emergency, please dial 9-1-1 or get to your local emergency room or hospital as soon as possible. While our office is capably equipped to address an extensive range of dental emergencies, a hospital ER or freestanding emergency room is the best place to go if your injuries are severe enough to warrant X-rays, CT scans, and other advanced diagnostic procedures.

Dental Emergency FAQ’s

Because a dental emergency can emerge when you least expect it, the last thing you want is to be caught unprepared. That’s why we’ve taken time to answer some of the more frequently asked questions about emergency situations. By being better informed, you can more effectively respond with the assurance of a full recovery.

Do dental emergencies cost a lot?

The cost of treating a dental emergency is a case-by-case situation. Thus, you’ll need to visit our office to be examined so that we can determine exactly what you need to restore your oral health. No matter what your treatment protocol entails, you can count on us to prioritize quality in an affordable manner.

Is a gum abscess an emergency?

A gum abscess is a definite dental emergency. It’s your body’s way of preventing an infection from spreading elsewhere by temporarily encasing it. So before matters get worse, reach out to us to schedule an emergency visit.

Should I go to the emergency room for a tooth abscess?

While a tooth abscess is a serious condition that shouldn’t be taken lightly, it typically doesn’t require you to head to the emergency room. However, it’s still a time-sensitive matter that requires immediate dental care, so don’t hesitate to give us a call.

How to Prevent a Dental Emergency

Emergency Dentistry FAQ’s

As much as you’d like to avoid it, a dental emergency can happen when you least expect it. While there are steps you can take to lessen the chances of one occurring, you can never go wrong by being prepared. To help out, we’ve provided answers to some of the most frequently asked questions about dental trauma so that you can avoid any confusion and unnecessary suffering.

What should be considered a dental emergency?

Any dental health issue that requires immediate attention to address severe dental pain, save a tooth or stop soft tissue bleeding is considered a dental emergency. Typically, there are two types of trauma: sudden occurrences (like a knocked-out tooth), and those that result from prolonged dental negligence (as in a toothache).

Once you recognize that you have a dental emergency on your hands, the most important thing to do is to remain calm. Therefore, you can think clearly and take the necessary steps to stabilize the situation until you can visit our office.

Should I visit the emergency room for dental care?

Usually, it’s not necessary to visit the emergency room (ER) to receive treatment for dental trauma, as we’re well equipped to treat most situations at our Plano office. However, there are still some exceptions.

If you have heavy oral bleeding that continues longer than 10 minutes, then you should head to the hospital. Another dental emergency that warrants a trip to the ER is a suspected broken jaw. On your way to the hospital, just be sure to immobilize the injured area. One way to go about this is to tie a piece of soft cloth around your head.

Is a knocked-out baby tooth an emergency?

A knocked-out baby tooth should be considered as a dental emergency. However, it’s not as severe as losing a permanent tooth. You should avoid attempting to reinsert it. Instead, securely store it in a bag and bring it with you when you visit our office.

To make sure no major damage has occurred to the unerupted teeth, we’ll take X-rays and Dr. Montgomery will perform a thorough examination.

Is it an emergency if my tooth is sensitive to cold temperatures?

If one of your teeth suddenly becomes sensitive to cold temperatures, it doesn’t automatically mean that you have a dental emergency on your hands. However, it can be a sign of worn tooth enamel that has exposed the nerves in the dentin or an infection.

Thus, you should still make it a priority to visit our office so that you can be examined. By heeding to the warning at the first sign of sensitivity, you can possibly prevent a full-fledged dental emergency and any unnecessary suffering.
