Emergency Dental Care
We recognize dental emergencies rarely happen at a convenient time. Accidents that lead to broken or chipped teeth as well as toothaches that cause severe dental pain cannot be planned. When you need urgent dental care, call Independence Dental’s dental emergency hotline, 972-915-0400.
Whether you are a current patient or someone who needs help, our team will take the time to resolve the situation – most often with a same-day appointment and even same-day treatment. Over the years, we have helped hundreds of your friends and neighbors save their teeth (even some who thought they needed a tooth extraction) and get out of dental pain. Pick up the phone. We are ready for your call.

Typical Dental Emergencies
Tooth Knocked Out. If your tooth is knocked completely out of your mouth, the best thing to do is to hold the tooth by the crown (the upper part), and gently rinse it in water. If you are able to place it back in the socket until you get to our office, do so. If not, then place the tooth in a small container of milk and bring it with you. Rinsing your mouth with warm water can help reduce the pain.
Severe Toothache. To determine what is causing your toothache, we’ll need to have you come to the office. Before you arrive, you may be able to reduce the pain by gently flossing around the tooth to remove any particles of food that may be present, and rinsing with warm water can help also.
Broken or Chipped Tooth. Sometimes accidents happen that result in a broken or chipped tooth. Or perhaps you bit down onto a piece of food or hard candy, and your tooth cracked or a portion of a tooth broke off. The dentist can best assess the next steps to restore your tooth, so coming to the office as soon as possible is the best course of action. You can rinse with warm water and use non-prescription painkillers to relieve any pain before you get to our dental office.
Abscessed Tooth. An abscessed tooth is one that has an infection in either the root or the nearby gums, and can be very painful. The infection will not go away by itself. If left untreated, it can spread to other areas, so be sure to get seen by the dentist as soon as possible. You can use an ice pack to reduce swelling, and non-prescription painkillers to manage the pain until you get to the office.
Lost or Broken Crown or Filling. As fillings age, they can loosen and fall out. And biting into food can sometimes cause a crown to break or fall out. If either of these happen, you will likely find the remaining tooth/area will be very sensitive to temperature and even air. Bring the crown or filling with you to our office if you have it.
