Emergency Care for New and Established Patients

As part of his commitment to compassionate patient care, Dr. Lee is prepared to handle dental emergencies at any time. Even if you have not seen Dr. Lee before, call his office at (972) 315-0811 if you experience sudden pain or injury to your mouth. Our helpful and efficient office staff will make arrangements for Dr. Lee to treat you promptly.

In Case of Emergency

While you are waiting to see Dr. Lee for your dental emergency, you should take certain precautions to increase your chances of a successful treatment outcome:

Broken tooth: Save any tooth pieces you are able to find, and rinse your mouth with warm water. Bring the tooth fragments with you to our Coppell dentist office.

Knocked-out tooth: Retrieve the tooth if you can and hold it by the crown. Do not touch the root area. If there is dirt or debris on the tooth, rinse it with cool water and try to insert the tooth back into the socket. If you cannot do this, place your tooth in a closed container of milk, saline solution, or saliva and bring it with you to your appointment.

Sudden toothache: The sudden onset of tooth discomfort could simply be the result of food or another object caught between teeth. If flossing and rinsing with warm saltwater doesn’t relieve the pain, you may have a tooth fracture, cavity, or infection that needs to be treated by Dr. Lee.

Bleeding: A cut lip or tongue can cause excessive bleeding. Rinse your mouth with water and apply pressure to the wound with a clean cloth. If your bleeding does not stop within a few minutes, call Dr. Lee or visit a hospital emergency room.

Broken dental restoration or prosthetic: If you lose a filling or crown, or if your denture, bridge, or dental implant breaks, save any pieces you can find and bring them to our office. Dr. Lee and his staff will restore your teeth so that you can function optimally.
