Dental Emergencies in Austin
We reserve time for our existing patients who are experiencing dental emergencies, and we always try to get you in the same day during our office hours. We also have an assistant on call during the weekend.
Our priorities are to relieve any pain you may be experiencing, correct any immediate problems and treat any infection. If additional treatment is required, we will create a plan for addressing these issues in a future appointment.
Our caring and compassionate staff will make you feel welcome and put you at ease. Your doctor will listen to your concerns, answer any questions you have and clearly explain what needs to be done.
A tooth that has been dislocated
When a tooth has been knocked out, follow these steps:
- Rinse your mouth
- Rinse the root of the tooth
- Attempt to gently place the tooth back in your mouth, without touching the root
- Once the tooth is back in, place a soft cloth between the upper and lower teeth and bite down gently until seen by a medical professional
It is important to keep it moist at all times. If you aren’t able to place the tooth back in the socket, place it between your teeth and gums.
A tooth that has been reimplanted by you or a dentist within an hour of injury has the greatest chance of successfully reintegrating into the gum. If no dentist is available, an emergency room can also treat your knocked out tooth.
