Emergency Dental Services–Prompt Care When You Need It Most

Our emergency dentistry services ensure our Austin TX patients get immediate care for a wide range of emergency dental concerns. We know that dental emergencies require swift attention, and our highly trained and experienced emergency dentists are here to help with a wide range of urgent dental issues, from traumatic injuries and dental infections to persistent pain. The sooner you receive treatment, the quicker we can alleviate pain, prevent complications, and speed up the healing process.

Identifying Dental Emergencies

Even if you take excellent care of your smile and maintain good oral health, dental emergencies can still happen unexpectedly. If you find yourself facing any of the following dental emergencies, please don’t hesitate to reach out to us immediately:

Persistent or Severe Toothaches

If you’re dealing with a sharp, persistent, and severe toothache that can’t be relieved by pain medication, you may have an underlying dental issue like a cavity, abscess, or infection. Don’t wait to address it! Visit one of our emergency dentists immediately to prevent the issue from worsening or causing other complications. 

Loose or Missing Dental Work

Loose crowns and fillings are considered a dental emergency because they leave your tooth vulnerable to bacteria that can cause further decay and infections. Bring your dental work with you to your emergency appointment; in some cases, we may be able to use the same filling or crown to treat your tooth. 

Cracked, Broken, or Chipped Tooth

Accidents, falls, or biting on hard foods can cause your teeth to chip, crack, or break, exposing the inner pulp to food debris and bacteria. This often causes an infection that requires root canal therapy. Come in right away so our emergency dentist can assess the extent of the damage and recommend the appropriate treatment. 

Knocked-Out Teeth

Accidents during physical activities and sports can result in avulsed (knocked-out) teeth. When this happens, it’s important to act quickly. The faster you seek dental care, the higher the chances that we can successfully re-implant your tooth. 

Jaw Pain or Swelling

Jaw pain or swelling can be a sign that you have a dental abscess, infection, or gum disease. It’s very important to get timely treatment to prevent further complications. Left untreated, dental infections can become life-threatening.

Jaw Trauma

Jaw trauma requires immediate attention from an emergency dentist. Beyond the immediate pain and swelling, jaw trauma can have more far-reaching consequences if not addressed promptly, such as temporomandibular joint (TMJ) disorders, malocclusion (misaligned bite), chronic pain, and difficulty caring for your teeth and gums due to restricted jaw movement.

Loose or Misaligned Teeth

Paying attention to changes in your teeth’s stability and alignment is crucial for maintaining your oral health. If you’ve noticed that your teeth feel loose or are misaligned, you could have an underlying dental issue like periodontal disease, tooth decay, or an oral injury. Ignoring these issues can lead to more severe issues, including tooth loss.

Gum Infections

Gum infections are serious dental issues that should never be overlooked. When left untreated, they can damage your oral health and overall well-being. Gum infections often manifest as inflammation, pain, and swelling of the gums. These symptoms can make eating, chewing, and even speaking uncomfortable. Over time, gum infections can lead to tooth loss. With prompt treatment, you can protect your smile and safeguard your overall health.

If you need emergency dental care outside of our office hours, don’t hesitate to call 911 or visit the nearest emergency room for immediate medical attention. Your well-being matters and prompt attention can make all the difference for your oral health!
