Things You Need to Bring With You
Because the emergency dentist you will be seeing operates like a dentist that is open during regular office hours, you’ll need to arrive at least 15 minutes before your appointment is due to start to fill out any paperwork they may have.
Before you leave, however, make sure you find out if they accept your insurance. If not, ask for a quote, or an estimate of the cost, for the appointment. It’s better to know what you’re walking into instead of walking in blind!
If you’ve visited your regular dentist recently and came home with some dental records, make sure you bring those with you. Even something simple as a dental receipt that outlined the treatments or procedures you had conducted during that appointment will do fine.
If you’re currently on any medications or are aware of any allergies, make sure you let the emergency dentist and any staff members that will be working on you know as soon as you sit in the chair. This is very important, as the emergency dentist and their staff must make sure nothing they use on you will negatively affect you or cause a reaction, in general.
Finally, if you have a fear of the dentist, don’t be afraid to let your emergency dentist and their staff know. They won’t be offended! In fact, if you let them know you’re uneasy about being there, they will do everything they possibly can to make sure you are nothing but comfortable the entire time you’re there.

Common Emergencies Emergency Dentists Face
Dental emergencies don’t care who you are, whether you have plans or not, and they especially don’t care if you have a low threshold for pain. Dental emergencies do, however, spring up when they are not wanted the most, so it helps to be prepared and know what you’re dealing with.
While a lot of the most common emergencies emergency dentists face show up as soon as they occur, some of them hide until it’s too late because of underlying dental issues that weren’t taken care of. This is why it’s extremely important to visit your dentist at least twice a year, as well as whenever you feel something is wrong.
Lost fillings, problems with the soft tissue of the mouth, loose braces, severe or entirely unbearable toothaches, knocked out or otherwise dislodged teeth, and oral infections are some of the most common dental problems that the emergency dentists in our network face on a daily basis.
Unfortunately, emergency dentists are not equipped enough to deal with more severe injuries, especially when it comes to any type of trauma to your head. If this happens to you, you’ll want to visit the local emergency room before you have us get you into an emergency dentist’s office first.
Losing an Adult Tooth
Regardless of how you lost your tooth, losing an adult tooth can seem like a scary, serious situation. Fortunately, it happens to patients every day and isn’t all that serious, as long as you act fast and call us as soon as you can after it happens.
Once you’re off the phone with us, the first thing you need to do is find that tooth. If you were able to find it, and the site where the tooth once was isn’t too damaged, pick it up by the crown and try to pop that sucker back in. Keep in mind that you should never pick up by the root, as this can cause irreversible damage to the tooth.
Putting it back into the socket is the best way to preserve the tooth until you can get to your emergency appointment. However, if the site is damaged, the tooth is damaged, or you’re just unable to get it back in there, put the tooth in a cup of water or milk for the time being. Doing so is the next best thing to keeping it preserved well!
Oral Infections – Abscesses
Nothing is more hidden until it becomes an unbearably painful problem like an oral infection, also known as an abscess. Abscesses are champions at hiding, mostly because they thrive in badly fractured or cracked teeth and generally can’t be seen.
However, sometimes, if you’re lucky, you’ll be able to spot a pimple in your mouth. If you do, make sure you get on the phone and call us right away. Oral infections are not to be trifled with.
Sure, it’s a time-sensitive problem now, but soon enough it’ll turn into a nasty, painful, life-threatening problem that will lead to blood poisoning if it’s not dealt with as soon as possible.
Broken Filling or Crown
Whether you’ve broken a filling or a crown, both create the same problem – an open tooth that’s at a high risk of being completely ruined. The first thing you need to do if you’ve lost a filling or a crown, is to give us a call so we can book an appointment for you with an emergency dentist in Dallas.
Next, you will need to run to a local drug store and get your hands on some dental cement in order to plug the hole that was once safely covered by the filling or the crown. If you’re unable to find some, however, some gauze will also do the trick, but not as well.
Leaving a tooth open like that once you’ve lost your crown or filling is setting that tooth up for total destruction. Food and debris is going to get in there, not to mention your tooth is extremely fragile without the covering.
Unfortunately, if you wait too long and do not call us to get an emergency appointment booked for you, you are running the high risk of destroying the tooth. By the time you wait for a regular appointment, it may already be too late. If this is the case, don’t be surprised if the dentist is forced to remove the tooth entirely. With this in mind, make sure you call us immediately if you’ve lost a crown or a filling.
Going Through an Emergency Tooth Extraction
Having to have an emergency tooth extraction conducted can be a scary thing to go through, aside from being one of the most common emergencies dentists face. With this in mind, we figured we’d go into detail about how the procedure is done to lessen your fear as much as possible.
Keep in mind, however, you may not need a tooth extraction at all! Your emergency dentist will first do everything they can to try and save your tooth, but this is not always possible. If saving the tooth isn’t an option, they’ll have no choice but to remove it.
Your emergency dentist will first begin the procedure by numbing the area completely to ensure you won’t feel any pain. The only thing you may feel during the procedure is some pressure, but that’s it!
Once the emergency dentist is fully sure you won’t feel any pain, they’ll rock the tooth back and forth until it pops right out of the socket. Sometimes, however, the tooth brings a challenge, so the dentist will need to break it up into smaller pieces and fully remove it.
Once the procedure is complete, he or she will then take some time to go over the important aftercare instructions that you will need to do at home. Take care to follow these instructions to the exact letter, or else you’ll be back in their chair.
Emergency Room vs. Emergency Dentist – Which One?
Knowing where to go first if you need both an emergency room and an emergency dentist is very important, especially if you have time-sensitive and/or life-threatening emergencies.
For any trauma-related injuries, especially where your head is concerned, you must go immediately to your local emergency room. They can help with your injuries, your pain, and may be able to help with your teeth if they have an emergency dentist on staff, but that is very rare.
Emergency dentists, however, are fully equipped to deal with minor oral injuries and are able to save your teeth no problem. Depending on the circumstances at hand, they may even be able to help with your pain, but don’t expect too much.
