Reasons for Needing an Emergency Dental Visit

The American Dental Association reported that the number one cause of adult tooth damage every year is playing sports. This spans all types of athletics and creates the need for emergency appointments throughout Irving TX. Even a backyard game of basketball can lead to someone damaging a tooth or someone knocking a player’s tooth out.The same holds true for kids playing sports as well. While there are ways to protect yourself like wearing a mouth guard, a dental emergency is still possible. When an emergency strikes call (469) 656-4025.

Car accidents are another leading cause of tooth injury. While the enamel on your teeth is strong, it may not be strong enough to prevent your tooth from breaking when colliding with the steering wheel. With millions of accidents a year, teeth are a common victim. We recommend that patients of Dental Artistry get examined at a local emergency room after being in a car accident; just to make sure that they have not sustained any physical injuries. Afterward, call us for a dentist appointment. The emergency room does not treat tooth damage, so you will need to see both types of medical providers.


Irving, Texas Emergency Dentist

Severe and sudden toothaches are another reason people in Texas end up needing an emergency dentist. We can examine teeth and determine what is causing the pain. It may be a little cavity that grew into a big one and now requires a root canal. Another possibility is gum disease, which can cause the gums to recede, exposing the tooth and roots. Both can lead to intense pain and require emergency treatment. We do not want patients of Dental Artistry to experience oral pain and will do our best to treat you right away so that you can remain comfortable.

If a tooth infection is left untreated for a long period of time, it can lead to a dental abscess. This is extremely painful. An abscess is a major tooth infection that can settle into your jawbone and the floor of your mouth. If it does, oral surgery may be necessary in order to remove the infection. We can let you know if we see an abscess during your dental exam with Dr. Sri.

99% of dental related emergency room trips could have been handled by an emergency dental office for a fraction of the cost.

How can I relieve dental pain while waiting for an emergency dental appointment?

We can help patients to stay comfortable and live a life that is pain-free. If you visit Dental Artistry experiencing pain, we will identify what is creating the issue and the treatment options available for dealing with it. Often, we will also prescribe medication to help with the pain. This can prevent you from feeling discomfort while your tooth is being treated and at home. You may also want to apply a cold compress or ice pack to the area in order to reduce or prevent swelling.

Treatment Options

When a tooth has fallen out…
If your tooth has been knocked out, try to find it. Once located, rinse the tooth under warm water without scrubbing it. Next, place it in a cup of milk and bring it with you to your dental appointment. We will try to save the tooth, if possible. If not, we will discuss options for replacing the tooth. This may include dentures, a dental bridge or dental implants.

When a tooth is broken…
It is common for people to damage a tooth while playing sports or getting into a car accident. It is likely that the tooth will become cracked or chipped. As long as the tooth structure remains in place, we can typically correct it with various dental treatment options. There are multiple ways that we can restore a patient’s teeth. Some of which include dental veneers and a dental crown. Both are excellent options and can restore your tooth to full functionality while keeping it natural looking. As an emergency dental facility, we can provide you with information on what your options are and the best way to restore your tooth while achieving the goals that you have for your smile. To schedule an appointment, call (469) 656-4025.

When a tooth is infected…
As an emergency dentist, we will assess the situation and inform you of where the infection is and the best way to quickly treat it. Our job is to keep you comfortable, healthy and pain-free. Patients trust us to remove infections and keep their teeth and gums in excellent oral health. Whether fixing a general cavity or treating a dental abscess, we make it possible for a tooth to be free from infection and pain. We can resolve the issue in a way that keeps patients comfortable during any necessary procedures.

72% of Americans have some type of restorative dental work. 23% of all dental emergencies are related to the restorations.

Enhancing The Way You Smile

Looking for dental help? Our dental team is always ready to help you achieve the smile of your dreams.

I just recently received treatment for a broken tooth, and I got to say that I have found a dentist for life. The staff is so friendly and helpful. They treat you like family and quite frankly I got to say that I was terrified of going to the dentist always and now I think that I’m very comfortable knowing that I’m in good hands. I would recommend dental artistry to anybody that is looking for a very professional and family environment. Awesome!
Milton Pascua
Not a dentist appointment fan, but here they made sure I felt at ease and comfortable. I had the most comprehensive new-patient exam and left knowing exactly what my options are. 100% recommended! Friendly, client-oriented, professional and knowledgeable staff. They know how to take care of patients who struggle with dental visits.
Karla Pino
To say I was impressed by the extremely thoughtful and professional service is an understatement. I have been to various dentist throughout my life and the women at Dental Artistry surpassed my expectations. If you are looking for a new dentist and you are not a fan of going to one in the first place, look no further. You will feel like you are at home and you will feel that you are cared for--because you are! They even have Netflix to watch on noise-cancelling headphones while you are getting your treatment (in case you don't like the sound of the tools on your teeth).
Valentina Charria
My experience with Dental Artistry has been lovely. All the women that work there are kind, friendly, and professional. After years of avoiding the dentist, I needed to have significant work done. The treatment has been painless and quick.
Jordan Dominguez
You know how you can sometimes be skeptical when you see an overwhelming number of positive reviews on a company's website? Especially when some comments seem too enthusiastic to be true? Well, those are the kind of reviews I was reading on the Dental Artistry site so I decided to drive to their office in Irving to check them out. I was so impressed I signed up for an appointment that very day. Since then I've had some procedures done and am working with them on a plan for my long-term dental care.
