With the warm weather and school being out, a lot of folks are out and about, taking vacations and enjoying the great outdoors. Along with recreational activities and sports, accidents can happen, leaving an injury to you or your a loved one’s smile. Our Family Dentistry of Frisco office offers unscheduled visits with our emergency dentist and team.
Help for Your Dental Emergency
When it comes to your smile, Dr. Paresh Patel in Frisco, Texas, is ready to help you with dental emergencies whether for infants or senior citizens by providing urgent care on Saturdays. What kind of situations are considered dental emergencies?
-A swelling or abscess
-Sinus pain near your teeth
-Losing a dental restoration
-Damage to your tongue, cheeks, lips or gums
-A tooth that is cracked, fractured, chipped or broken
-A tooth that is partially or fully knocked out of the mouth
We will work with your schedule to get you in as quickly as possible. How soon we can get you in depends on the dental emergency and we will let you know over the phone when to come in. In the meantime, we will give you any instructions needed until you are seen. For example, how to save a lost tooth, rinsing your mouth with warm water and salt, applying an ice pack or cold compress to lower swelling, halting bleeding with gauze and taking an over-the-counter or topical pain reliever. Once you arrive, we can also provide dental sedation to help you deal with anxiety or pain.
