Emergencies, by their very nature, arise at a moment’s notice. You can’t make an appointment for an emergency; it just happens. And for families, emergency dental care is essential. Kids are especially prone to accidents, but anyone at any age can find him or herself in a position of needing emergency dental care. Comal Dental offers emergency dentistry in New Braunfels, Texas. Dr. David Earnest and the team will go out of their way to provide you with timely attention when you need it most.
What kinds of problems constitute a dental emergency? If any of the following occur, contact us immediately so that we can provide you with direction on what to do next:
- Knocked out teeth
- Severe toothache
- Something between teeth you can’t dislodge
- Lost or broken dental work
- Chipped teeth
When you call us about your dental emergency, we’ll provide you with specific instructions as to what to do to best handle the situation. If your tooth is knocked out or chipped, make sure you try to find the piece of tooth or tooth itself to bring with you to our office. Don’t clean any tissue off the tooth. Always try to bring any dental restorations or pieces of dental restorations to our office if those break or come loose, too. For a toothache, you can apply a cold compress to the outside of the mouth on the side where the pain is located.
