Emergency Dentist Plano, TX
New patients welcomed by emergency dentist in Plano, TX
If you are new to the Frisco, Irving, Plano, TX, area, you may not have given much thought yet to emergency dental care. Dental emergencies, however, tend to crop up at inconvenient and stressful times. It makes sense to partner with an emergency dentist now, for peace of mind should the unexpected occur.
Recognizing a dental emergency
While some dental issues are sudden and can be alarming, they are not truly emergencies. In these cases, it is fine to schedule a regular appointment (just be sure to tell the receptionist the nature of your problem):
- Mild, intermittent toothache or tenderness
- Minor enamel chip or small area of breakage
- Lost filling
- Loose crown or implant
- Loose or broken orthodontic hardware
- Object stuck between teeth
- Minor soft tissue injury
However, please seek dental treatment immediately for:
- An avulsed tooth – one that is knocked out of its socket (fast treatment greatly increases chance of saving the tooth)
- Extruded tooth – one that is partially dislodged; still in the socket but loosened by trauma
- Large area of breakage, or broken below the gum line
- Acute toothache
- Abscess or facial swelling
Please call 911 or visit your nearest hospital emergency department if a facial injury results in uncontrolled bleeding or there may be broken bones.
