Emergency Dentistry

tooth pain from a dental emergency in GrapevineEmergency 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 We Treat

Many different injuries or accidents can constitute a dental emergency, including:

  • Broken Teeth: Whether from a fall, sports impact, or biting into something hard, a broken or fractured tooth requires immediate treatment to prevent further damage and ease the pain.
  • Cracked or Chipped Teeth: Cracks and chips may seem minor, but they act as an entry point for bacteria that leads to infection and compromise the tooth’s integrity if left untreated. While it may be difficult to know when a cracked or chipped tooth is an emergency, if that tooth is a hindering factor to your overall health and well-being, contact our staff immediately.
  • Knocked-Out Tooth: When a tooth is completely dislodged from its socket, prompt reimplantation within 30 minutes offers the best chance of success. Proper storage of the tooth is crucial.
  • Severe Toothache or Pain: Persistent, worsening tooth pain can signal an infection, injury, or advanced tooth decay that should be addressed right away before complications arise.
  • Broken Jaw: Any trauma resulting in jaw fractures or displacement needs emergency evaluation and care to ensure proper healing and prevent long-term bite issues.
  • Oral Infection: Watch for signs of abscess like swelling, discharge, fever, and throbbing pain – all indicators of a spreading infection requiring antibiotic treatment.
  • Objects Stuck Between Teeth: Attempts to remove objects wedged between teeth can further push debris into the gums, so it’s best to have a dentist safely extract it.
  • Dislodged Dental Work: When crowns, veneers, fillings, or other restorations become loose or fall out, you’ll want to have them re-cemented or replaced promptly.

Contact our office immediately if you or a family member is experiencing any of the above.

What To Do In a Dental Emergency

Dental emergency about to occur
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.

IV and Oral Sedation

We understand that emergency dentistry may cause anxiety or stress. For patients experiencing heightened levels of stress or anxiety, we can offer IV and Oral sedation. This can help patients feel a deep level of relaxation while undergoing the treatment. Patients need to forego eating and drinking for at least 8 hours prior to treatment.

No matter the nature of your dental emergency, Mason Dental will make every effort to see you promptly and start any necessary treatment to get you out of pain. Contact us immediately and we’ll provide guidance tailored to your situation.
