Like all medical emergencies, dental emergencies require immediate and quality care. If you are in a lot of pain, see visible swelling, your gums or teeth are discolored, you have broken or knocked out a tooth or have experienced some other trauma to your mouth or jaw that affects your teeth or gums, you should seek emergency dental treatment as soon as possible. Sports impact, chewing hard food, using teeth as scissors, and infections can all result in dental emergencies. The good news is, Dr. Wright and our team leave room in our schedule every day to accommodate emergencies and are on-call after hours. We’re here for you when you need us!
If you have a dental emergency during office hours, you should call us and come to the office immediately. If you have a dental emergency outside office hours, call our number and follow the instructions on the answering service. Your Bulverde/Spring Branch emergency dentist, Dr. Wright at Smithson Valley Family Dentistry is here for you.
In any dental emergency, call us and make an appointment before you do anything else. If the office is closed, you may get our answering service, but Dr. Wright is on call and available to help if need be. At the same time, clean and treat your wound as much as you can until you can get in to see the dentist to preserve the tooth and surrounding tissues.
