“From my first visit Dr. Cheng put me at ease. I was worried that my two previous dentists had left me with a lifetime of pain. Dr. Cheng cared about helping me. I now have a bridge that fits and doesn't make me scream in pain.”

“Recently had to get a crown. Dr. Stovall was very concerned about my comfort and made the whole process painless and quick. I received a phone call then next day making sure that I had no problems.”

Is It a Dental Emergency?

In general, if you are experiencing pain, have broken something in your mouth, or are bleeding from the gums, lips, tongue, or cheeks, you should seek emergency dental attention. Don’t head to the emergency room for treatment. Your dentist in Fort Worth is prepared for most dental and oral emergencies.

The most common situations we treat as emergencies include…

  •       Knocked out teeth
  •       Toothache or abscessed tooth
  •       Broken or fractured teeth
  •       Something lodged between the teeth
  •       Lacerations to the soft oral tissues

Of course, emergencies come in all forms. If something is off with your dental or oral health, don’t delay in seeking treatment. 

Dental Emergency? Here’s What to Do Next

Help yourself be prepared for your next urgent situation by learning what to do for the most common dental emergencies. We will provide specific advice related to your situation over the phone when you call to schedule your emergency appointment.

Teeth that have been knocked out should be attended to as quickly as possible. After two hours out of its socket, it’s unlikely that a missing tooth will be successfully reattached. Collect the tooth and rinse away any debris under cool water. Do not scrub the tooth, and avoid touching its root. Try to store the tooth in its socket until you can reach the dentist’s office. If that’s not possible placing the tooth in the cheek, or a bag of milk or water will suffice. If you have broken a tooth into multiple pieces, collect the larger ones for possible reattachment.

Don’t ignore a toothache. Infections in the teeth can quickly abscess or spread to other parts of the body. If you are experiencing pain in the tooth, contact our office. A root canal may be necessary for relieving discomfort and saving the tooth from extraction.

Many times, children complain of an aching tooth when they have something lodged between the teeth. A large food particle may be to blame. To determine the cause of your child’s ache, help her brush, floss, and rinse the teeth. If the pain persists, contact your dentist immediately.

If you experience bleeding as a result of your dental emergency, stop the bloodflow by applying consistent pressure with a clean gauze. If bleeding has not stopped or slowed after 10 minutes, seek emergency medical attention.
