If you’re calling off-hours or on a weekend, our 24/7 phone service will get you in touch with someone, and if you’re unable to reach our office right away, we provide guidance for how to manage your emergency situation until Dr. Prachi Shah can give you the relief you need through expert care.
So what constitutes a dental emergency? We trust your judgment in these situations, but if you’re unsure, here are some of the most common cases our Arlington, TX team treats:
- Partially Knocked Out Tooth
- Fully Knocked Out Tooth
- Cracked or Chipped tooth
- Fractured Tooth
- Painful toothache
- Knocked Out Filling or Crown
- Object Stuck Between Teeth
- Soft Tissue Injury
While many dental emergencies happen because of unavoidable circumstances, there are steps patients can take to protect their smiles. When participating in an athletic event, always wear a sportsguard. Don’t use your teeth to open difficult packaging. Rely on scissors instead. Take care to avoid particularly chewy or sticky foods, and resist the temptation to chew the ice from your drink, as this may cause damage.
Of course, there are some extremely dire situations where assistance from an emergency room is recommended. This includes heavy oral bleeding, facial swelling, and a severely damaged jaw that could be broken. Dr. Shah assists patients with treatment of any broken teeth after their initial recovery.
Time is of the essence in emergency situations, so don’t wait – contact our Arlington area practice today for help! We also welcome patients from Grand Prairie, Fort Worth, and beyond.
