Emergency Dentist in Frisco, TX
What Qualifies as A Dental Emergency?
A dental emergency can strike at any time. When these often unexpected events arise, it’s vital to address them quickly in order to prevent the need for further care in the future. Dental emergencies can consist of tooth pain due to poor oral hygiene, biting forcefully into the inner lining of the mouth and cheeks, pieces of food being lodged in between the teeth or gumline, tooth chipping, teeth that have fallen out or been knocked out, and other instances that require immediate attention in order to resolve tooth pain and other symptoms that require quick action. Active Dental Frisco is proud to provide convenient emergency dentistry hours in order to accommodate emergency patients, helping our community members avoid the need for further more extensive dental care down the line.
Why Do Dental Emergencies Need To Be Treated Immediately?
Dental emergencies are often unexpected and occur at inconvenient times, making is necessary to have these emergency addressed as soon as possible in order to avoid the need for surgery or other more extensive dental work. Dental emergencies can also involve minor to moderate bleeding as well as tooth breakage, which are both symptoms that require immediate medical attention. When dental emergencies are left untreated, the largest threat is that these emergency symptoms can develop into larger dental complications down the line, which then may require surgery and other more extensive and expensive treatment solutions. If you every experience sharp stabbing tooth pain, moderate bleeding of the gums, or a chipped tooth, make sure to schedule an emergency dental visit as soon as possible to have the emergency addressed.

Sharp, stabbing pain in the teeth can indicate a tooth infection or infected root, which is addressed through root canal procedures. Thankfully, most of today’s dental patients who undergo root canals do not experience anything more than mild pain or discomfort during these procedures thanks to today’s available methods of dental sedation during care.
