Emergency Dentistry

A medical or dental emergency can be frightening, stressful, and disrupt your routine. That is why we welcome dental emergencies, whether or not you are currently a patient in our office. You will always receive prompt treatment when you are in pain or your oral health is at risk. We never want you to wait needlessly, so we reserve time to take care of patients just like you when you need us most.

Our Emergency Process

At the first sign that something is wrong, contact us so you can go over your symptoms with one of our helpful team members. In most cases, we will try to get you into the office on the same day or the next morning.

Once Dr. Michael Colangelo makes a diagnosis, we can usually perform the service for you on the spot. If it is particularly complex, we will make sure to stabilize your tooth and provide palliative care until we can schedule enough time to complete your treatment.

When it comes to dental emergencies, we don’t “wait and see” because dental pain rarely resolves on its own and your condition can actually worsen over time, even putting your tooth – or your overall health – at risk.

Patients stay away from the dentist for a number of reasons.

One of the most common concerns we hear is that patients have difficulty getting completely numb before treatment. Dr. Michael Colangelo is experienced at anesthetizing patients completely, making dentistry more comfortable and enabling you to get the care you need without anxiety.

How We Help With Dental Anxiety

No one likes pain, and since every patient is different, we allow plenty of time for anesthetic to take effect before we begin. Simply put, if you are not numb, we will not start work. This promise eliminates the fear that many of our patients feel about dentistry.

Before using anesthetic, Dr. Michael Colangelo will first apply a professional-strength topical anesthetic. This makes the entire process painless because we actually numb your gums before we numb your tooth. With the advances that modern dentistry has made, there is no reason why you can’t expect dental care with no discomfort.

Sedation Dentistry in Grapevine TX

Are you still feeling apprehensive? Did you know that stress hormones such as cortisol and adrenaline can keep you from getting completely numb? Most of our fearful patients discover that they feel more comfortable in our office than any dental office they have visited before. We enjoy helping our patients enjoy comfortable dentistry in a fun, relaxing, and caring dental office. So what are you waiting for? Give us a call today!
