Allen, TX practice offers emergency dental care

Dental emergencies can be uncomfortable and stressful. Whether you have a toothache or experienced dental trauma, you want to know that care is there when you need it. At Allen Dental Studio in Allen, TX, we make sure our patients are taken care of with emergency dental care services. When you call our office with an emergency, we’ll advise you on how to handle things at home and make every effort to get you into the office as soon as possible.

The following are the most common dental emergencies and how you can handle them while waiting for emergency dental care.

Knocked out tooth

If your tooth becomes dislodged, it’s important to seek care as quickly as possible for the best chance of saving the tooth. You can rinse the tooth off gently with water, make sure to only hold the crown and not the root. If you can, place the tooth back in the socket safely. If not, you can put it in a glass of milk and bring it with you to the office.

Toothache / Tooth Infection

If you are experiencing tooth pain, you should first try to floss in the area of the pain to see if it’s being caused by trapped food particles. If the pain doesn’t go away or you notice swelling and sensitivity in the area or experience fever, it’s important to seek emergency dental treatment.

Cracked Tooth

If you fracture your teeth you will need to call the dental office as soon as possible for treatment. Over the counter pain medication can be used to alleviate any discomfort and ice packs can be used to reduce swelling.

Preventing dental emergencies

While not all emergencies can be avoided, there are some things you can do to reduce your risk of needing urgent dental treatment. This includes:

  • Never use your teeth to open or tear apart non-food items
  • Wear a custom mouthguard when playing sports
  • Avoid chewing on hard objects like pens, hard candy, or ice
