If needed, Dr. Vela and Dr. Rodriguez will treat a dental emergency in Kingsville, Texas. Never ignore a dental emergency as this can cause serious damage. Ignored dental emergencies will also result in more costly dental treatments later on.

We stress to you the importance of knowing what to do in the case of a dental emergency. If any type of dental emergency occurs, come to our office and see our dentists as soon as possible. In the case of a toothache, use a cold compress to control swelling and pain. Rinse your mouth with warm water and use floss to gently remove any food between the teeth. If a tooth becomes chipped or broken, save the pieces and bring them to our office. Rinse your mouth and the tooth pieces in warm water. Use gauze to control any bleeding and use a cold compress to lessen swelling and pain. If you knock out a tooth, try to put it back in the socket. Make sure the tooth is facing in the right direction and do not force it back in. If the tooth will not go back in, place it in a small container of milk.
