Dental emergencies can happen at any time, causing pain and other symptoms that can interfere with everyday activities. Texas Dental is a leading provider of urgent care for patients in and around Plano, TX, providing quick relief for symptoms while preventing further damage from occurring.
Dental problems don’t follow a set schedule, and that means they can happen at any time. At Texas Dental, we’re skilled in providing urgent and emergency dentistry care to treat a wide array of issues, including:
The American Dental Association reports sports activities are the leading cause of traumatic injuries to teeth, but many urgent care issues can arise as a result of poor oral hygiene, including not having regular professional cleanings or poor brushing and flossing habits. Chewing on ice or hard candy or using the teeth as tools to open or pry objects can also result in fractures and other issues requiring emergency care. To prevent emergencies, it’s important to wear mouth guards when participating in sports and to have regular checkups to treat early signs of gum disease or decay so teeth stay strong and healthy.
A healthy adult tooth that is knocked out can often be replanted, but it’s critical to call the office and to get care immediately while the root is still living. Gently rinse any debris from the tooth, and try to replace the tooth in the socket if possible, but do not touch the root which can be easily damaged or infected from germs on your hand. Gently bite on a clean cloth to keep the tooth in place. If the tooth cannot be placed in the socket, it can be placed between the cheek and gum or in a glass of water or milk.
