Prestonwood Park Dental Care Offers Same-Day Emergency Dentistry

When you’re in the middle of a dental emergency situation (such as a cracked tooth or serious mouth pain), the last thing you want is to be told that you’ll have to wait days to see your dentist. At Prestonwood Park Dental Care, we take our responsibility to our patients seriously, and we always leave plenty of time open in our days to accommodate these urgent visits on the same day as the patient’s initial call. Better yet, we’re highly flexible and are happy to come in early in the morning, late at night, and even on Saturdays and Sundays when necessary to accommodate your needs and provide you with much-needed relief. All you have to do is contact our Plano office right away!

What Counts As A Dental Emergency?

Dr. Woodard trusts his patients’ judgment when it comes to emergency cases. If you’re in pain and in need of fast help, we want to see you as soon as possible. However, if you’re still hesitating over whether or not you should classify what you’re experiencing as a true emergency, here are the most common situations we see that we’d consider urgent in nature:

  • Severe toothache
  • Cracked/fractured tooth
  • Broken/lost crown or filling
  • Oral bleeding
  • Partially dislodged tooth
  • Fully knocked-out tooth
  • Gum tissue injury
  • Object stuck between teeth
  • Jaw injury

How Can I Prevent Dental Emergencies?

  • Never chew on the ice in your drink.
  • Exercise plenty of caution when enjoying foods that are overly chewy, hard, or tough in the mouth.
  • Use scissors when opening packaging and not your own teeth.
  • Always wear a sportsguard when participating in a sport where you could come into contact with hard objects or other players.
  • Attend regular checkups here at Prestonwood Park Dental Care! We can help by treating dental problems in their earliest, most harmless stages and never allowing them to become emergencies in the first place.
