During the month of October, the only thing that should be scary is haunted houses and kids dressed in ghost and goblin costumes. However, dental emergencies can be a little scary. Having the right frame of mind to determine the next best steps while you or your child is suffering is difficult to do. The thought of waiting to make a future appointment is frightening as well. If you live in or around Little Elm, Texas we have good news for you. Parklane Family Dentistry offers emergency dentistry.
When you have a dental emergency it’s important to take a couple steps that will help alleviate your fears and assist in helping you recover as quickly as possible.
- Find and call a dental office, such as Parklane Family Dentistry in Frisco, Texas, that will accept dental emergencies. We offer urgent dental care that enables us to treat our patients in a professional and timely manner.
- Try to determine what kind of dental emergency you are experiencing.
If you have a severe toothache or dislodged tooth you may rinse your mouth with warm salt water and apply a cold compress to the outside of your mouth. If you have a knocked-out tooth, keep it. Teeth that are re-implanted back into the socket within one hour have the greatest chances of being restored. Abscessed teeth caused by infections need to be treated with an antibiotic as quickly as possible to prevent further harm.
Parklane Family Dentistry knows that not all dental treatments can be planned. Dr. Vashisht cares about each patient, and wants to alleviate any dental fears you may have.
