Emergency Dental Care
Even when you are very diligent about your dental health, accidents can happen or emergencies may arise. My team and I are here for you when you need us most, and we make every effort to see our emergency patients the same day and provide treatment if necessary, even if you have never visited our dental office before. Please don’t hesitate to give BRUSH Modern Dentistry a call at (214) 494-9298 if you or a loved one is experiencing a dental emergency.
Dental Emergencies We Can Help With
If you have an accident or injury to your teeth and mouth, please contact our Frisco, TX dental office first rather than visiting a hospital emergency room. My team is well equipped to help you with most dental emergencies, and it will save you valuable time, money and stress in the long run because hospitals aren’t typically prepared to handle dental emergencies, and they will recommend that you visit your dentist anyway.
At BRUSH Modern Dentistry, we offer services for these emergencies:
- A knocked-out (avulsed) tooth – Please contact us right away as we have the best chance of preserving your tooth within the first few hours of your injury.
- Broken or lost restorations – If an old crown or filling is broken or failing, you don’t have to live with the discomfort. Contact us right away for a repair or replacement of your restoration.
- A chipped or broken tooth – Teeth that are chipped or broken can be both irritating and embarrassing. We can restore your tooth, so it doesn’t irritate your tongue or soft tissues.
- Toothaches – If you’re experiencing constant and severe tooth pain, it could be the indication of an infection. Root canal therapy may be able to eliminate your infection and preserve your tooth.
Avoiding Dental Emergencies
I believe that prevention is the key to optimum dental health, and while there are some situations that can’t be avoided, there are also many dental emergencies you can prevent.
When you are consistent and proactive about visiting BRUSH Modern Dentistry every six months for cleanings and checkups, it allows me to identify many concerns such as gum disease, tooth decay, and cavities very early. This not only allows you to choose less complicated treatment procedures, but it also protects you from more significant problems in the future.
For example, if I detect tooth decay in its early stages, in most cases, you can easily fix your tooth with a dental filling. If you delay or ignore the treatment you need, tooth decay progresses further into your tooth and eventually reaches your nerve, where it will cause an infection.
Since many dental emergencies are sports-related, I can recommend the right mouth guard to protect you or your children if you participate in sports. A custom mouth guard offers optimal protection while keeping you comfortable and on top of your game.
