Unfortunately, dental emergencies can occur from time to time. Fortunately, they are rare. When you or your loved one experience a lost or damaged tooth, our dentist, Dr. Asad Ahsan and the team at Vital Dental are here to help. If you have a dental emergency in McKinney Texas, your first call should be to our office at (972) 347-0945.
A dental emergency is a situation that requires prompt attention from Dr. Ahsan. By it’s very definition, an emergency is unplanned, however, if you call our office right away, we can do two things. The first is to advise you on first aid measures that can minimize the damage, ease the pain, and in some cases, perhaps even save a tooth. The second thing we will do is to schedule you for an emergency appointment as soon as possible. For example, in the case of a knocked-out tooth, we may have a window of thirty minutes to an hour to save it. We can advise you on how to keep the tooth viable while you are waiting for your appointment.
We are happy to assist you with several types of dental emergencies, including:
- Severe, lasting toothaches or other types of tooth pain
- A knocked-out tooth
- A chipped or broken tooth
- Damage to the soft tissues of the mouth, including the tongue, cheeks, lips and gums
- A cracked or fractured tooth
- A partially knocked-out (extruded) tooth
- A lost dental restoration, such as a lost filling or crown
If you find yourself in the middle of a dental emergency, don’t hesitate to reach out to us at Vital Dental. Please keep in mind that if you have sustained trauma to the head or neck, have a broken jaw or are experiencing severe bleeding, you should visit the emergency room before contacting our office.
