Your Trusted Carrollton Emergency Dentist
You can’t always plan for when you will need to visit the dentist. If a severe toothache or broken tooth catches you by surprise, Dr. Durga and our whole Carrollton team are prepared to accept your dental emergencies. Sometimes, getting attention right away can mean the difference in saving your damaged tooth or not.
If you are unsure whether or not you’re dealing with a dental emergency, remember that if you’ve broken something, are in pain, or are bleeding from the mouth, chances are good that you need to seek urgent attention.
Common Dental Emergencies
Some of the most common situations we treat as emergencies include…
- Knocked out or dislodged tooth
- Severe toothache or abscess
- Foreign object lodged between teeth
- Broken dental work — filling, crown, bridge, etc.
How to Deal with a Dental Emergency
First, control the situation by finding any missing or broken pieces and carefully storing them for possible reattachment. Stop or slow bleeding by applying constant pressure to the wound with a clean gauze or cloth. Then call our office — our experienced staff will schedule a time for you to come in and provide tips for what you can do in the mean time. If, however, you have broken a bone or experience uncontrollable bleeding, head straight to the emergency room.
