Emergency Dentist Q&A

What is emergency dentistry?

Emergency dentistry available at Keller Smiles includes dental evaluations and same-day treatments that restore your teeth and smile when time is of the essence. The skilled dental team has many years of experience treating dental trauma and other problems requiring immediate care.

They save time in their schedules to accommodate urgent dental needs to reduce pain and your risk of severe dental problems. 

Why might I need emergency dentistry?

You might need emergency dentistry if you or someone in your family develops:

  • Severe tooth decay
  • Infected tooth
  • Pus in the gumline
  • Chipped or broken tooth
  • Cracked tooth
  • Toothache
  • Missing permanent tooth
  • Knocked-out permanent tooth
  • Severe soft tissue bleeding
  • Missing or broken tooth restoration
  • Object stuck in the teeth

Call the Keller Smiles office if you’re unsure if you need emergency dental care. Compassionate providers can happily answer your questions over the phone.

What should I do during dental emergencies?

During dental emergencies, stay calm and place pressure on any bleeding. Ice a painful or swollen area of your mouth and save a knocked-out tooth or restoration, such as a crown, dental implant, filling, veneer, or bridge. Place a knocked-out tooth in saliva or milk to keep it moist. Head to Keller Smiles as soon as possible after experiencing a dental emergency.

What happens during emergency dentistry visits?

When you arrive at Keller Smiles for a same-day emergency dental visit, you first receive pain relief if you need it. Your provider assesses your condition by taking dental X-rays if necessary, examining your gums and teeth, and discussing your symptoms and treatment preferences.

You might need a root canal, dental fillings, crowns, other restorative dental procedures, or surgery in severe cases. Your dentist does everything possible to save a severely decaying or damaged tooth from becoming loose or falling out. 

If you lose a tooth, they provide dental implants and crowns, bridges, or dentures to fill in any gaps and perfect your smile. Your dentist tailors each emergency dental plan to your situation. 

How can I reduce the risk of dental emergencies?

Protect your teeth from future damage by not chewing on hard objects, wearing a mouthguard if you play contact sports or grind your teeth at night, and seeing your dentist at least every six months. Don’t wait until you have severe tooth pain to see the Keller Smiles team. 

If you need emergency dental care, call the Keller Smiles office, schedule an appointment online, or simply walk in today.
