Our Beaumont, TX Emergency Dentist
Without fail, dental emergencies will happen on a Saturday, Sunday, or Holiday! A knocked out tooth or bitten tongue can cause panic in any parent, but quick thinking and staying calm are the best ways to approach such common dental emergencies and prevent additional unnecessary damage and costly dental restoration. This includes taking measures such as application of cold compresses to reduce swelling, and of course, contacting our office as soon as possible 409-892-2600.
We are not open 24 hours. Please refer to hour office hours.
My temporary came off and I can't get in, what do I do?
You can purchase a temporary cement from your local pharmacy, put some in the temporary crown and place it back on the tooth. Then call as soon as possible to come in.
I had an extraction and the bleeding hasn't stopped, What can I do?
You can wet a tea bag and place it over the affected area for about 15 minutes. That should help stop the bleeding.
