About Emergency Dental Care
Dental emergencies are never convenient, whether the result of an accident, sports-related injury, or sudden toothache. To bring timely care and relief when your family needs it most, experienced general dentist Dr. Fesaha Gebrehiwot offers fast, efficient emergency services at Trusted Dental Care Wylie, TX. While we treat all types of dental emergencies, a few of the most common oral injuries we see are cracked, broken, and knocked-out teeth, toothaches, and dislodged restorations. A dental emergency could result from biting or chewing hard foods, an accident when playing sports, blunt-force trauma to the mouth, or an untimely slip-and-fall. Though you may or may not feel discomfort, it is important to have your mouth checked after an injury to screen for any damage and restore health and comfort to your smile. At Trusted Dental Care, we always make dental emergencies a priority by offering effective, compassionate care and do our best to see you the very same day.

When to Seek Treatment
Some dental emergencies, such as a tooth that has been dislodged or knocked-out, require immediate professional care. But there is also a good chance you may require urgent care if a tooth or restoration falls out, you are in pain, or you have a broken or cracked tooth. In some instances, you might be uncertain of how soon you should seek treatment (for example, a loose tooth or restoration, an injury that does not cause bleeding or pain, or a chipped tooth). Whenever you have an injury to your mouth, including your teeth, gums, or jaw, it is important to get in touch with us right away. Dr. G. along and our staff can help you determine how soon to come in, suggest strategies to reduce any pain, and let you know how to store your tooth or restoration until you arrive at Trusted Dental Care. Even seemingly small injuries may cause larger issues if not treated as soon as possible, so it is better to err on the side of caution and contact our office right away.
What To Expect When You Visit
Each dental emergency is unique, so Dr. G. will carefully evaluate your situation before providing a diagnosis at your appointment. Digital x-rays might be required to check for additional or hidden concerns and fully evaluate the extent of your dental emergency. Once Dr. G. understands the degree of your problem, he will talk with you about your options and develop your personalized treatment plan. In an emergency situation, our primary concern is relieving your discomfort and accommodating your needs. While you might require one or multiple appointments to restore your oral wellness, we will work as quickly as possible to get you back to enjoying a healthy, attractive smile.
Follow-up Emergency Needs
Based on your dental needs and emergency care, Dr. G. will give you instructions to help you recover after your treatment at Trusted Dental Care. He may provide a prescription for antibiotics or pain medication, which should be used as directed. Our team will also let you know if you need to make an appointment for another treatment or a follow-up exam. After your dental emergency is treated, Dr. G. may offer suggestions on how to prevent potential accidents, including a custom-made mouth guard to be worn while playing sports. We also recommend that you stick to a regular home oral care routine with flossing and brushing to keep your teeth and gums strong and healthy. During your regular dental cleanings and exams at Trusted Dental Care, Dr. G. will continue to keep an eye on your healing progress.
Will Insurance Cover My Care?
If you carry dental insurance, we will contact your provider to learn more about your coverage and benefits once Dr. G. has created your treatment plan. For those not using dental insurance, Trusted Dental Care takes many payment methods and can provide information on obtaining medical financing to help make your treatment easier to afford. Please do not delay a dental emergency because of concerns over cost, as waiting could lead to greater and more serious issues.
