Emergency Dentist in Plano
Emergency Dental Services
Minor and serious injuries and accidents often involve damage to the teeth so it’s imperative to call an emergency dentist right away. Addressing teeth trauma immediately can help minimize the complexity of the damage, and minimize the treatment and cost. At BME Dental, we offer same-day appointments and accept emergency walk-ins because we know how unpredictable dental emergencies can be. Our dental office is also open on Saturdays if you have a dental emergency on the weekend!
What is Emergency Dental Care?
Emergency dental care consists of treatments that require immediate attention. It can range from an asymptomatic chipped tooth, to excruciating pain caused by a rotten, broken or decayed tooth. We understand that life happens and that sports, falls, and foul play can cause accidental damage to teeth. At BME Dental, we pride ourselves in being able to provide you the most conservative and honest dental treatment to help relieve your tooth pain and minimize cost as much as possible.

What Emergency Services Do We Do?
BME Dental offers an array of emergency procedures and services to relieve your pain as soon as possible. These include but are not limited to the following:
It’s not uncommon to chip your tooth through accidents, foul play, and even biting hard into a fork or a piece of hard food. If the damage is small enough, fillings can be used to fix broken teeth effectively and immediately. At BME Dental, we are prepared to address your dental emergencies as soon as possible to avoid further damage to your oral health.
We know that life happens and we forget to go to the dentist for years. When this happens, teeth can become grossly decayed or rotten to the point where it can no longer be saved. When a tooth becomes infected, it causes throbbing dental pain that won’t go away even with pain medication! Dr. Bridget can remove the source of pain by extracting the tooth in a quick and painless manner!
Emergency Root Canals
Often times a cavity does not show symptoms until it’s too late. When a cavity gets too big inside a tooth, the decay starts to impinge on the tooth nerve causing it to hurt. When the nerve is involved, a root canal is necessary to relieve the pain. When you come in for a dental emergency due to nerve pain, Dr. Bridget can relieve your pain immediately once a root canal is completed.
Emergency Root Canals for Children
Our children love to play and sometimes play leads to dental accidents such as chipped or broken teeth. It’s important to address your child’s dental emergency as soon as possible because it can have serious consequences on their adult teeth if treatment is delayed. At BME Dental, we can perform root canals or extractions on baby teeth to relieve your child of pain as soon as possible.
