Call our office at (830) 625-7757 to schedule an appointment.
Drs. Brev and Don Bedford promptly treat a number of common emergencies, including:
Severe Tooth Pain - A toothache is a signal to call our office to schedule an appointment within a week or so. However, extreme pain is usually a symptom of infection and decay has reached deep into the tooth. When the pulp (which houses the tooth’s nerves) is invaded, discomfort can be intense, and the infection may spread to the root, causing an abscess. Over-the-counter pain relievers may provide some temporary relief, but the pain will not subside until proper treatment is received.
Broken or Knocked-Out Tooth - If one of your teeth breaks or is knocked out, apply pressure to your mouth to stop any bleeding. Use an ice pack over the area to reduce swelling. If the tooth is completely dislodged, rinse carefully, without touching the natural fibers, and try placing it back in the socket. When that's not possible, you should put the tooth in a glass of whole milk or slightly salted water. For a knocked-out tooth to be replanted, the attempt must be made, by a professional, within 30 minutes. In this case, call our office right away, and we will direct you to either come right in if it’s during business hours or head to the emergency room.
Loose Fillings and Crowns - If your crown or filling is loose, remove the restoration from your mouth and keep it in a plastic baggie if possible. Schedule an appointment with our emergency dentist right away, as leaving an unfilled or uncrowned tooth exposed can lead to serious problems.
