Are you experiencing a serious dental emergency? Don’t hesitate to call our Richardson office immediately. We do our best to handle dental and orthodontic emergencies as quickly as possible. In fact, our goal is to see you that exact same day. When you call, we’ll set aside a time for you to come in, and we’ll offer tips that can help you manage your emergency until then.
Rinse your tooth gently with water and try putting it back in the socket it came from. If you're unable to, store your tooth in a bag of milk or water until we can determine if reattachment is possible.
Rinse your tooth with warm water and apply a cold compress to the affected area. This will help you control swelling.
Try reattaching your temporary using a small dab of toothpaste or denture adhesive, then schedule a time for us to professionally reattach it.
Before giving us a call, rinse your mouth and floss around the tooth to see if you can remove any debris that might be causing your discomfort. If your pain persists, give us a call.
Not everybody has wisdom teeth, but patients who do often need to have them removed in order to preserve their oral health down the road. In these situations, we’ll provide you with pain-free treatment that helps preserve the alignment of your teeth and reduce your risk of infection and decay. Using our advanced imaging technology, we’re able to tell if your wisdom teeth are impacted or require removal before they cause any damaged or pain, helping you avoid experiencing discomfort.

For other emergencies, like a broken jaw or a cut that won't stop bleeding, you may need to visit your nearest emergency room instead of visiting our office. For precise instructions, don't hesitate to give us a call.
