How to Handle a Dental Emergency

If a loose tooth remains in your mouth, don’t touch it or try to remove it. There’s a chance it can be saved once you visit our office. If your tooth falls out, make sure to bring it with you when you come in for treatment.

In case you’re unsure how to handle a missing tooth:

  • Only handle the tooth by its crown
  • If the tooth is dirty, rinse it in lukewarm water
  • Place the tooth in a container of milk or lukewarm water
  • Get to Precision Dentistry & Implants in Kerrville as soon as possible

Financing Urgent Dental Care

When it comes to a dental emergency, the cost can always be a worry for many patients. Here at Precision Dentistry & Implants, we offer in-house financing options to help you receive the care you need.

We work with third-party financial companies like CareCredit and Lending Club. Once approved, they will cover partial, or sometimes full, costs of your dental treatment. During your visit, you can discuss these options further with our financing team.

When Extraction is the Best Option

If an infection such as decay or gum disease goes untreated for an extended period of time, the damage may be too extensive to repair the tooth and extraction could become your only option.

Reasons you may require a tooth extraction include:

  • When a tooth is severely damaged by decay
  • When a broken or fractured tooth cannot be repaired
  • In cases of advanced gum disease (periodontitis)
  • If you need orthodontic work and more space is required between teeth
  • To prepare for the dental implant process
  • If you have crowding due to wisdom teeth (third molars)

Emergency Fillings & Crown Repair

If you notice your filling or dental crown has become loose or broken off, give us a call to get it repaired right away. We can restore and save your tooth by giving you a new filling or crown.

However, it’s important to know that you shouldn’t wait long to come in for emergency care because we may not be able to preserve your tooth after a certain period of time.

Emergency Root Canal Therapy

We know the pain caused by an infected root canal can be hard to tolerate. At our Kerrville dental office, it doesn’t have to be with our emergency root canal therapy.

Once you come in, we’ll immediately remove the infection from your pulp and fully restore your tooth with a dental crown. You’ll be able to leave our office with a healthy tooth and no more pain.

Unexpected Orthodontic Complication?

Throughout your orthodontic treatment, there’s oftentimes a chance something can happen. If this is the case, we offer emergency orthodontic care to help repair any broken brackets or wires.
