What is a dental emergency?

We define a dental emergency as any oral condition which is causing you pain, bleeding, or discomfort, and that you cannot treat on your own. While this includes some obvious conditions like a loose tooth or a tooth that has been knocked out, it also includes things like a serious toothache that may have been bothering you for a few days, a pulled-out filling, and even cases of severe gum disease.

If you think your oral condition is an emergency, it probably is. Don’t risk your oral health! Contact us right away for a same-day emergency consultation. You can reach us at (972) 442-7550 or feel free to stop by our office at 703 E FM 544, Suite 100, Murphy, TX.

What are some common dental emergencies?

The most common category of dental emergency is pulled-out, missing, or damaged dental work. It’s quite common for dental work (such as fillings or crowns) to become damaged or displaced, and this can be a serious issue. The enamel below your dental work is vulnerable to decay and damage, so if you do not get help right away, your issue can become much worse. 

Other common dental emergencies are oral injuries. Lacerations to the lips, gums, and tongue are common, as are loose, knocked-out, and impacted teeth. Chips and cracks in the teeth are also a serious emergency. Chronic or severe toothaches are a common dental emergency that we treat quite often at Parkside Dental. If you have a serious toothache, it may indicate an infected tooth, which must be treated with a root canal as soon as possible to avoid the eventual loss of your tooth.

What should I do in a dental emergency?

  • If you have had a tooth knocked out, or a filling or crown is missing, the first thing you should do is recover your tooth or dental work, if possible.
  • A knocked-out tooth can be rinsed off and replaced in the socket, or put into a container of cold milk. Dental work can be put in a plastic baggie.
  • After recovering your tooth or dental work, call Parkside Dental for an appointment immediately at (972) 442-7550.
  • After this, you can treat your pain, discomfort, or bleeding, if present. Bleeding can be stopped with clean gauze or cotton balls. You can take medicine like ibuprofen (Motrin) or naproxen (Aleve) to help mitigate pain and inflammation. Applying an ice pack externally to the site can also help relieve discomfort.
  • Come to Parkside Dental as soon as you can for treatment by Dr. Jason and Dr. Jean Larsen.

Do you offer same-day appointments?

Yes! If possible, we ask that you give us a call at (972) 442-7550 before you come in so that we can properly prepare for your visit before you arrive. However, we often have space in our schedule set aside for emergencies, so you can also walk into our office at 703 E FM 544, Suite 100, Murphy, TX 75094. We will treat you as soon as we can!
