Smiles at Murphy

What should I do if I have a dental emergency?

If you have a dental emergency in Murphy, TX, we want you to call our office as soon as possible.

We make time in the daily schedule to treat patients with emergencies and will always work to get you in front of our emergency dentist as soon as possible.

After you’ve arranged your emergency visit, there are a few things you can do in the meantime.

If your tooth was knocked out, put it in a cup of milk until your emergency dental visit. Taking this step—along with prompt treatment—may mean your dentist can reset the tooth.

If you have a toothache or swelling, we recommend taking an over-the-counter pain reliever if you’re medically able. You can also try an icepack to ease your discomfort.

However, if you’ve sustained an injury—a car accident, for example—we want you to visit the hospital and contact us after you’ve been stabilized. Your safety is the top priority!
