Whether your tooth is broken, damaged, or you have another urgent dental problem, don’t wait to call our dental office as soon as possible. Our team members at ProSmiles Dental & Orthodontics of Plano have worked with countless patients over the years and seen it all when it comes to dental emergencies. Our dentists will quickly determine the cause of your symptoms so you can get relief and prevent your emergency from getting worse. When you call, we’ll set up an appointment for you to receive emergency dentistry in Plano, TX right away.
The sooner you get in touch with our dental office, the sooner we can get you scheduled for an appointment, ideally the same day you call. You’ll also be able to speak with a team member and get first-aid tips ahead of your visit. Once you arrive, our front desk will get you checked in, bring you to an operatory, and one of our dentists will be ready to perform an emergency exam. Once they do, they can recommend a treatment plan from there as well as get you out of discomfort.
In order to fully resolve a dental emergency, you’ll need the help of a dental professional to address it. However, there are ways to manage your symptoms before you arrive for your appointment. This is why we recommend giving us a call directly if you experience any of the following dental emergencies below.
All dental emergencies are unique, which means treatments must be personalized in order to best address them. No two emergency treatments are the same, and neither are their associated costs. For example, root canal therapy to save a tooth will certainly cost more than placing a dental filling to restore a tooth damaged by decay. Regardless of the type of treatment you need, we’ll make sure you have the clearest estimate possible of your care beforehand and discuss your financing options with you in detail.
The team at ProSmiles Dental & Orthodontics of Plano are happy to provide tips to reduce your risk of dental emergencies. While not all dental emergencies can be avoided, you can take steps to avoid some of the most common causes, such as plaque development and oral injury. For example, brushing and flossing every day, maintaining routine dental checkups and cleanings, wearing a mouthguard while playing sports (or nightguard if you grind your teeth) and never using your teeth as a tool are extremely effective habits for lowering your risk.
