Emergency Dentistry in Grapevine
As a family dentistry practice, we at Mason Dental are no strangers to dental emergencies. These types of emergencies can be rare, but when they do happen, it’s important to know what to do and where to seek immediate medical attention.
Whether you’ve knocked out a tooth or are dealing with a sudden tooth pain, Mason Dental is ready and willing to do whatever it takes to give you priority treatment.
Types of Dental Emergencies
Many different injuries or accidents can constitute a dental emergency, including:
- Broken teeth.
- Cracked or chipped teeth.
- A tooth that has been knocked out.
- Severe toothaches or tooth pain.
- Broken jaw.
- Discharge or pain from an infection.
- Objects stuck between teeth.
- Dislodged dental work like veneers or crowns.
Contact our office immediately if you or a family member is experiencing any of the above.
What To Do In a Dental Emergency
If your tooth has been knocked out, try to place it back into its socket. If this is not possible, put the tooth in a bag of milk and bring it with you to your emergency appointment.
For any dental emergency, there are things you can do to mitigate damage, if you aren’t able to come to us right away. This includes rinsing out the injured area, applying gauze to slow any bleeding, or using an ice pack to reduce swelling. For any severe jaw or tooth pain, you may also take painkillers.
Same Day Appointments for Dental Emergencies
More often than not, we are able to see anyone the same day they call in with a dental emergency during business hours. If you’re one of our patients of record we may even be able to see you after hours. Your health is our number one priority and we want to help in any way we can. So don’t hesitate to call!
