Types of Dental Emergencies We Treat

Dr. Lalani is an experienced emergency dentist in Mesquite who provides prompt dental care for:

  • Toothaches
  • Broken teeth
  • Lost crowns and fillings
  • Bleeding or inflamed gums
  • Food stuck between teeth
  • Jaw pain and swelling
  • Tooth infection or abscess
  • Dental trauma

When you call our dental office, an experienced team member will ask you about your symptoms and arrange for you to see Dr. Lalani as soon as possible.

There are a couple of ways you can help yourself until you see us:

  • Toothache: Take an OTC pain reliever like ibuprofen to reduce inflammation. Use a cold compress on and off your face for 20 minutes, and rinse your mouth with saltwater.
  • Broken tooth or lost dental crown: Wrap the crown or broken pieces of the tooth in tissue and bring with you to your appointment.
  • Dental trauma: Timely treatment for dental trauma is crucial. If you have a knocked-out tooth, don’t touch the root portion. Rinse the tooth gently and try reinserting in the socket; if this isn’t possible, place it in your cheek pocket or a container of saliva or milk.

Most Critical Dental Emergencies

Extremely critical dental emergencies are:

  • Severe tooth pain
  • Jaw pain and swelling
  • Dental trauma

All of these are urgent because they put your oral health in serious jeopardy. A toothache is one thing, but if it’s so bad that you can’t function, we need to see you right away. 

Jaw pain and swelling are often signs of an infected or abscessed tooth that requires a root canal to save it from extraction. Dental infections can be deadly in some cases if not treated promptly, so please don’t put off calling—we want to help you. 

Dental trauma includes injury to the teeth, lips, gums, or jawbone, usually due to a sports injury or auto accident. These injuries can be excruciating and damage your long-term oral health if not treated promptly.
