Dallas Emergency Treatments
Get the After-Hours Attention You Need
Dental problems don’t always wait for 9 to 5. Unfortunately, they can occur at 2 a.m. just as readily as 2 p.m. What happens then? It’s not really considered a medical emergency for 911 when you lose a tooth or crack one. Do you head to the emergency room? Wait for morning? With Metroplex Implants and Family Dentistry, you can call us to be seen. After all, we have the expertise in correcting your tooth issue that no general doctor in the ER is going to have.
If you have a tooth emergency in the Dallas area, isn’t it good to know you can call us 24/7 to get it addressed quickly and professionally? Plus, we’re conveniently located on Sigma Road, a quick drive from surrounding towns such as Addison, Farmers Branch or Carrollton. Whether your kid fell out of bed and knocked out a tooth or you cracked one of your own teeth by biting into something hard, we are here to help if your emergency occurs outside of normal business hours. Our staff knows how unpredictable life can be.
Common tooth emergencies that require immediate attention include:
- Severe tooth aches
- Missing/lost teeth
- Severe cavity pain
- Chipped or broken teeth
- Broken partials
- Abscessed teeth
- Lost fillings
- Periodontal treatment
Our team here at Metroplex understands the frustration of heading to the emergency room or urgent care clinic in the middle of the night only to be referred back to a dentist. Let’s close that gap and get you seen immediately by your own dental professional so you can be pain free as soon as possible. If you’re going to have to have emergency dental surgery or treatment, don’t you want it done right the first time by your own trusted dentist? We thought so.
Importance of Treating Dental Emergencies
You may think that tooth ache you’re experiencing isn’t so bad. Or maybe that chipped tooth can wait. Well, the longer you put off those problems, the bigger those problems can become. The number of patients seeking help in the ER for delayed dental care is on the rise. According to USA Today, research from the American Dental Association shows dental ER visits doubled from 1.1 million in 2000 to 2.2 million in 2012, or one visit every 15 seconds.
Untreated tooth problems can lead to hospitalizations stemming from infection, which can even lead to death if not taken seriously. Pain is usually what drives people to seek treatment, but don’t wait until it gets unbearable. Come see us at Metroplex Implants & Family Dentistry at the first sign of distress. We can help you avoid those emergencies that keep you awake in the middle of the night. Preventive dentistry is the best course of action, so don’t neglect seeing your dentist once every six months, no matter how old you are.
