Where Is Emergency Dental Care Near Me?
When a dental emergency interferes with your daily activities, it’s necessary to contact our emergency dental clinic as soon as possible. Waiting a few hours or days to see if your symptoms improve can cause even more damage to the area and threaten your long-term oral health. Our dentists strive to see patients as quickly as possible in emergency situations, and many patients can receive an appointment the same day. To receive quality emergency dental care, contact us to schedule an appointment.
Cost for Emergency Dental Care
The cost of emergency dental services is different for every patient and is determined by your insurance coverage, the type of treatment received and whether you need any follow-up appointments. When you come to our office for your appointment, the dentist will go over your treatment options and estimated costs.

What Is Emergency Dental Treatment?
In addition to routine cleanings and exams, our dentists in Cedar Park also offer emergency dental treatment. Here’s a list of a few of the urgent dental care services you can receive:
Emergency Extractions: While saving your natural teeth is always our first concern, there are urgent situations that require immediate removal of a tooth, such as extreme trauma or damage. To keep you comfortable during the procedure, our dentists use local anesthesia and other techniques.
Emergency Wisdom Teeth Extractions: Your wisdom teeth are the final set of molars to erupt, and they are susceptible to damage, decay and infection just like any other tooth. If your wisdom teeth are causing severe pain, please call our office as soon as possible.
Root Canals: Root canal treatment is a safe and effective procedure to stop tooth pain and prevent a tooth from being lost to decay or injury. During this common procedure, infected and damaged pulp is removed from the tooth.
Root Canals for Children: Since saving natural teeth is always best, we also offer root canal treatment for children. Our dentists are experienced in treating children, and we will do everything we can to ease your child’s fears and keep them comfortable during the procedure.
Tooth Extractions: If your tooth is too badly damaged from decay or injury, a routine tooth extraction can be performed to remove the affected tooth.
How to Know If You Need Emergency Dental Services
If you have any of these symptoms or conditions, please seek urgent dental care from a local emergency dentist.
Abscessed Teeth: A dental abscess is a serious infection of your tooth that requires immediate treatment. If you have an abscess, see an emergency dentist as soon as possible.
Broken or Cracked Teeth: A broken or cracked tooth can cause sensitivity and pain. To prevent infection, it’s important to receive treatment if you’ve damaged one or more teeth.
Broken or Fractured Jaws: A broken or fractured jaw is a common facial injury, but it’s a serious injury that requires prompt treatment. If you have any of the symptoms of a broken or fractured jaw, such as swelling, jaw pain or stiffness, or a misaligned bite, please contact your emergency dentist immediately.
Broken, Loose or Lost Crowns: If your crown is broken or becomes loose, it’s important for it to be replaced quickly. To prevent additional damage to your tooth, contact us for a crown replacement that can restore your smile.
Dental Infections: Avoiding professional dental cleanings can cause plaque and bacteria to accumulate, increasing your risk of dental infections. We can treat your dental infection in our office and provide information about how to prevent them from recurring.
Knocked-out Teeth: Any type of trauma to your mouth can cause a tooth to become loose or knocked out. Although it’s possible for your local dentist to save the tooth, we recommend trying to place the tooth back into its socket, or placing the tooth in a cup of milk to keep it preserved until you arrive for your appointment.
Loose or Lost Fillings: A lost filling or crown can make the affected tooth more susceptible to decay. Please visit our office for a replacement filling.
Severe Facial or Gum Swelling: Uncomfortable swelling of your face or gums can indicate an infection. Our dentists can provide a thorough examination to diagnose the problem and outline a treatment plan to relieve your discomfort.
Severe Toothaches: A severe toothache may be a sign of advanced decay or infection. Rather than waiting to see if the pain goes away on its own, we encourage you to schedule an appointment for emergency dental services with one of our dentists.

We are also a preferred provider of MetroCare, a discount dental plan that can reduce the costs of many dental treatments and procedures.
