dental emergency treatment

Serenity Advanced Dentistry is pleased to announce that we are available to provide emergency dental services for new and existing patients in the Cedar Hill, TX, area. We understand that dental emergencies pop up unexpectedly by their nature, and when they do, you need treatment ASAP! Dr. Allala is committed to helping patients resolve their dental emergencies to quickly get them out of pain and back to enjoying life.

Why does a toothache pop up, or your filling fall out at the most inconvenient time, like during a weekend, after regular business hours, or worse yet, over a long Holiday weekend, when most dentists are not available to help? Where do you turn for treatment if you have a dental crisis? Look no further; Dr. Allala is here to offer emergency dental services for those unexpected and distressing dental issues. As a special benefit for prepaying patients, she is happy to offer 24/7 care. Call us for more information at Serenity Advanced Dentistry; you can count on us to be there in your time of need.

In many dental emergencies, timely treatment can get you the necessary relief and minimize damage. We set aside time daily during our regular practice hours for urgent appointments, but we realize this is not enough to serve our patients' emergency dental needs. Emergencies do not follow business hours and tend to happen at the most inconvenient times.

What’s an Emergency?

All dental discomfort is unpleasant, but what constitutes a true emergency that should not wait for treatment? Should you tough it out until regular business hours or call immediately? Below are some guidelines to help determine if your situation can wait for a scheduled appointment or if it is a true emergency that requires immediate treatment. If you are unsure about your particular situation, call us, and we will be happy to answer any questions and direct you to the appropriate care.

Here are some examples of dental issues that require emergency treatment:

Severe Tooth Pain

Sudden and severe pain is not normal and is a sign that something is wrong, requires immediate attention, and should not be ignored. A toothache can do a lot more than ruin your day; it is a symptom of a serious issue that needs immediate attention. Toothaches lasting more than one day or that are causing a significant amount of discomfort need to be treated as a dental emergency.

Knocked Out Tooth

A tooth knocked out is quite a shock and a true dental emergency. With quick action, it's possible for the dentist to reinsert and preserve your tooth. Do not wait; immediately call Serenity Advanced Dentistry for an emergency appointment; you should see the dentist within an hour or two for the best chance of successfully saving your tooth.

If you experience tooth loss, pick it up from the top, careful not to touch the root. Rinse the tooth in water, do not scrub it. If possible, carefully insert the tooth back into the socket for safe keeping as you make your way to the dentist. If you can not place it in the socket, put it in a cup of water or milk and get to the dentist asap.


The most likely cause of sudden, severe pain is an infection in the tooth or gums. Getting treatment sooner vs. later puts you in a much better position to stop the infection before it does extensive damage, including the loss of teeth. By the time pain is an issue, the condition is usually well established, and an untreated oral infection can rapidly progress to an overall health-threatening situation. The infection can spread to other tissues and ultimately to the bloodstream, where it causes sepsis, a life-threatening condition. At Serenity Advanced Dentistry, we successfully diagnose and treat oral emergencies regularly; call us for an emergency appointment to regain your oral health.

Swollen or Bleeding Gums

Small amounts of blood when flossing or brushing your teeth are of concern, and making an appointment to see the dentist is a top priority. But gums that will not stop bleeding, especially if swelling and pain are involved, are not typical and need to be assessed for the cause asap. This type of bleeding is a dental emergency; Dr. Allala will determine the cause and begin treatment immediately.

Swollen Jaw or Mouth

Swelling and tenderness in the jaw and/or mouth are usually signs of a growing infection and may involve lymph nodes. This symptom is a dental emergency due to how quickly an infection can progress. Call for an emergency appointment so treatment can begin.

Exposed Nerves

You probably know you are experiencing a dental emergency if you have exposed nerves. The pain is excruciating, and it will get worse without prompt treatment. Emergency treatment can prevent further nerve damage, infection, and the need for more extensive dental treatment. Do not delay getting treatment for this issue; call immediately for an emergency dental appointment. Stop the pain and the damage before it gets worse.

Filling or Crown Loss

Fillings and other dental hardware are durable and made to withstand years of use. But, like with anything else, failures can happen. It is a dental emergency if you have a filling fall out or a crown break. You may or may not be in pain, but either way, the structure of your tooth has been compromised and is vulnerable to further damage. Get to the dentist as soon as possible so the dentist can make the necessary repairs in time to salvage the tooth.

At Serenity Advanced Dentistry, your health is our top priority.
