What You Can Expect If You Have an Emergency
Here’s what an emergency visit with a Plano dentist will include:
- Discussion of your symptoms – We’ll start by reviewing your medical history and asking about your symptoms and general situation.
- A visual exam and X-rays – Then we’ll visually inspect your teeth and gums and take X-rays to see what’s happening inside the jawbone and the roots and nerves of your teeth.
- Photographs – We may use a small intraoral camera to take up-close photographs of your teeth. This is a great way to document our findings and help you better understand your treatment plan.
- Recommendations and treatment – We’ll finish up by telling you what we found, explaining your diagnosis, and recommending the best treatment. If you have an infection, this may include an antibiotic to prevent it from spreading and becoming dangerous to your general health.
Convenience is at the top of everyone’s priority list. With three dentists and office hours every day of the week, you and your family will find it much easier to get the care you need for a healthy smile.
