Being in a situation where you need emergency dental care can be both painful and frightening. While we hope that you’ll never need to use them, our Dallas dentist at Buckner Family Dental is proud to offer a number of emergency dental services. We have staff on call 24 hours a day, seven days a week to ensure that you can get the care you need right when you need it.
Dental Emergencies Happen
A Dental emergency can happen for a number of different reasons. Injuries to your teeth and jaw can happen at any time. You may bite into something crunchy and find yourself with a broken tooth. Perhaps your child has had a visit from the Tooth Fairy and decided to pull a tooth on their own to get another. A treat like some chewy candy or gum may be enough to loosen or pull out a filling.
In other cases, an existing dental injury or issue may suddenly become unbearable. Receiving immediate relief can become an absolute necessity. Our 24 hour emergency dental services can provide you with prescription-strength analgesics to give you relief from the pain until you can be treated during regular office hours.
Dental emergencies aren’t reserved for injuries to the teeth. At times, you may receive a cut on your gums, or inside your mouth. These are serious injuries that need to be treated immediately. Your mouth harbors millions of bacteria, and cuts or scrapes inside the mouth that are left open and untreated can become infected, leading to more serious problems and severe pain. Any time you receive a serious cut in your mouth, you need to call your emergency dentist to have it treated right away.
Don’t Wait To Treat a Dental Emergency
Whether you’ve suffered a tooth injury during a car accident, or while playing with friends, it needs to be taken care of immediately. Waiting can put your overall dental and oral health at risk, and could even make the problem worse. Dental emergencies rarely occur during regular office hours, but that is no reason to wait. Whether you’ve lost a dental crown or a filling, or broken, chipped, or cracked a tooth, it is a serious issue that needs to be taken care of immediately.
Dallas dentists at Buckner Family Dental can be contacted 24 hours a day, seven days a week to take care of any of emergency dental needs you may have. Whether you’ve left a dental problem untreated for some time and are now experiencing severe pain, or if you’ve had an oral trauma that has damaged your teeth, our professional and caring staff can help. We offer treatment without judgment, and will be happy to help with any emergency dental services you need. Don’t wait; call our offices today and let us help you get back the wonderful, pain-free smile that you deserve.
