Get Immediate Care with Odessa's Emergency Dentist
While dental emergencies cannot always be avoided, at Boyles General Dentistry, we welcome patients to contact us right away, when emergencies do occur. In many cases, having a plan of action can significantly decrease the emergency related stress. Our team tries to treat emergency cases on the same day we’re contacted, and if this is not possible, we walk through first aid and pain management tips over the phone to keep patients safe and comfortable until their appointment. We trust our patients if they call with what they believe is an emergency, but if you’re not sure whether your situation is urgent, review the following list of common dental emergencies we treat:
- Avulsed (knocked out), chipped, cracked, or broken teeth
- Avulsed, chipped, cracked, or broken temporary or custom dental restorations (crowns, bridges, inlays, onlays, etc.)
- Damaged or broken partial or full denture (in many cases we’re able to repair dentures in a single day)
- Severe toothache with sensitivity to changes in temperature that might indicate root canal infection or an infection around the gum line that may point to dental abscess
If you’ve experienced severe facial trauma, soft tissue lacerations that continue to bleed heavily after an hour, or a potentially broken jaw, we urge you to dial 911 or proceed to your nearest emergency room. Once we’re sure you’re safe, our dentists are happy to partner with other medical professionals to ensure your treatment planning includes the restoration of any damaged teeth.
