Emergency Dentistry FAQ’s

No one wants to have to endure a dental emergency, but if it happens, it helps to be as prepared as possible. At our New Braunfels office, we’ve treated our fare share of dental emergencies, and we’ve noticed some common questions from our patients. Because being properly educated can play a huge role in effectively responding in these situations, we’ve listed the top five questions and answers. If you find yourself dealing with a dental emergency, we’re here to help you recover. So don’t hesitate to contact us to request a visit.

Should I head to the ER?

In most cases, your emergency dentist should be your first choice for receiving emergency dental care. However, there are two situations that you should immediately head to the emergency room for: profuse oral bleeding that has lasted for longer than 10 minutes and a broken jaw. For any other type of emergency, you can schedule a visit at our office.

Do I need a root canal?

If you have a severe toothache, then it’s usually a sign of acute oral bacteria growth that has penetrated to the inner parts of your tooth. Typically, root canal therapy will be needed to restore your oral health. However, to salvage the tooth, it’s important to receive care in a timely manner.

Do I need to receive care right away?

The best way to prevent a dental emergency from becoming worse is to reach out to our office the moment you discover any troubling symptoms. Hesitation can be quite detrimental, even if any pain or other indicators have temporarily eased up. As a rule of thumb, oral health issues don’t right themselves without being treated. So don’t place your recovery on hold.

Will I be able to prevent the same type of emergency happening in the future?

Hands down, prevention is always the best form of dental treatment. Thus, after we’ve helped you regain some normalcy in your life, the last thing we want is for you to suffer the same or similar problem in the future. Thus, we’ll also strive to educate you about what steps to take moving forward to ensure you stay as healthy and strong as possible.

Can I count on my dental insurance to provide coverage?

As the word ‘insure’ denotes, you want to know that in the event of an unforeseen situation, you have some coverage available to protect you. While the benefit levels can vary by plan, you can bank on having some form of umbrella to receive the care you need to restore your oral health if a dental emergency happens.

If you find yourself facing a dental emergency, don’t panic. Simply contact us, and one of our friendly staff members will be glad to help ease you down the road to recovery.
