What Is Considered A Dental Emergency?

Dental crises are rare, but they could occur when you least expect it. Cracked teeth, lost fillings, or other dental issues need immediate attention that may not be available through most medical emergency rooms. Our dedicated team of dental professionals will always do our best to get you in as soon as possible to treat your dental emergency. Some common emergency dental issues include:

  • Chipped or cracked tooth/teeth
  • Knocked out or loose tooth/teeth
  • Damaged dental work such as crowns, bridges, or fillings
  • A severe toothache that lasts a long time
  • Advanced periodontal disease

Our Emergency Dental Services

1. Toothache Relief:
If you experience a sudden toothache, our Burleson dentists at Legacy Dental will thoroughly examine the affected tooth to identify the cause of the pain. Depending on the severity of the issue, they may perform procedures such as a root canal, cavity filling, or extraction.

2. Broken or Chipped Tooth Repair:
In the event of a broken or chipped tooth, the team at Legacy Dental will carefully assess the damage and provide appropriate treatment. This may involve bonding, dental veneers, or crowns to restore the tooth’s strength, functionality, and aesthetics.

3. Lost Filling or Crown Replacement:
If you have lost a filling or crown, it is vital to seek immediate dental attention to prevent further damage. Our experienced Burleson dentists will evaluate the extent of the loss and promptly replace the filling or crown using high-quality materials to ensure a long-lasting restoration.

4. Dental Abscess Treatment:
A dental abscess is a serious condition that may result from an infection in the tooth or gums. Our emergency dentists in Burleson, TX, will drain the abscess, thoroughly clean the affected area, and prescribe antibiotics if necessary to eliminate the infection and promote healing.

5. Knocked-Out Tooth:
In the unfortunate event of a knocked-out tooth, it is essential to seek immediate dental help. Our team will carefully handle the avulsed tooth, clean it, and attempt to reinsert it. If successful, they will splint the tooth to the neighboring teeth for support. If reattachment is not possible, they will discuss replacement options such as dental implants or bridges.

6. Emergency Root Canal Treatment:
In cases where severe tooth pain is caused by an infected or abscessed tooth, Legacy Dental offers emergency root canal treatment. This procedure involves removing the infected pulp from the tooth’s inner chamber, disinfecting the area, and sealing it to prevent further infection. Emergency root canals provide immediate relief from intense pain and help save the natural tooth from extraction. Our emergency dentists in Burleson, TX, will assess your condition, perform the procedure efficiently, and ensure your comfort throughout the process. If you experience persistent tooth pain accompanied by swelling or a pimple-like bump on the gums, seeking emergency root canal treatment is essential to prevent the infection from spreading and causing more extensive damage.

What To Do When A Dental Emergency Strikes

Knowing how to respond in dental emergency situations is crucial to minimize discomfort and prevent further damage until you can reach a Burleson dentist.

  • In the event of a toothache, rinse your mouth with warm saltwater and gently floss around the affected area to remove any lodged debris.
  • If a tooth is broken or chipped, collect any broken fragments and rinse your mouth with warm water to clean the area.
  • If bleeding occurs, apply gentle pressure with a clean cloth or gauze.
  • For a lost filling or crown, temporarily cover the exposed area with dental cement or sugarless gum until you can visit a dentist.
  • If a tooth is knocked out, handle it carefully by the crown (avoiding touching the root), rinse it gently with water (if dirty), and place it back into the socket if possible. If not, store it in milk or saliva and bring it to the dentist immediately.

Remember, in all dental emergencies, contacting your dentist as soon as possible is crucial for swift and appropriate treatment. We will always try to accommodate you with same day emergency appointments where possible.
