At Vista Ridge Family Dentistry, we understand that oral injuries can be traumatic, and that a toothache is sometimes the worst pain of all. We also understand that oral injuries are highly time sensitive, and it’s important to treat them right away. That’s why we’re proud to offer same day emergency dental care for our family of patients, and anyone in Cedar Park or the surrounding communities.
If you or a member of your family is in need of immediate dental care, you should call your Cedar Park dentist right away and we will get you in as soon as possible the same day.
While many times it’s obvious, other times patients are unsure whether their problem qualifies as an emergency. Not to mention, oral injuries tend to bleed a lot so they can often seem much more traumatic than they actually are. Here’s a list of some of the most common oral injuries that qualify for emergency care:
If you’ve had a tooth knocked out, here’s some helpful advice from the American Association of Endodontists on what to do until you can get in to see your Cedar Park dentist.
Unless you think your life is in danger, you should skip the ER and call us first. The truth is, the Emergency Room is not trained or equipped to handle dental injuries properly. You will likely have to wait a long time as your injury will not take priority in the ER, and by the time you are seen, it will likely be too late to save your tooth, and they will likely just tell you to call an emergency dentist anyway. Save yourself the trouble (and the bill), and call us first!
We leave room in our schedule every day to accommodate emergency appointments, so you can rest assured you will be prioritized and seen in a timely manner for the best chance at saving your smile and relieving your pain.
If it’s outside of our regular office hours, our doctors are on-call 24/7 to handle emergencies for patients of record.
If you or a loved one are in severe pain or have experienced a traumatic dental injury, don’t wait, call us right away and we’ll get you in to see one of our doctors as soon as possible. Your Cedar Park emergency dentists, Dr. Max Kerr, Dr. Brandon Hedgecock, and Dr. Supriya Patel are happy to provide urgent dental care at Vista Ridge Family Dentistry.
