Most people think dental problems like teeth pain, toothache, tooth infection, broken jaw or teeth, broken crown are non-emergencies. For that matter, a lot of people assume a dental problem is never an emergency. In reality, we get numerous calls from our patients after hours and in weekends as they can’t bear the pain. Although it is not a life threatening issue, sometimes the pain could get worse and a treatment is needed immediately. The treatment can be as simple as prescribing the pain relieving medicine or a root can treatment, or it can be any other dental procedure but need to be done immediately. As an emergency dentist we set aside few appointments to accommodate just these situations.

At Austin Primary Dental, Dr. Rupa Rajanna treats dental emergencies with utmost priority. She answers all the calls round the clock, suggests the best pain relieving medicines and other homemade therapies. If needed she will ask the patient to come in immediately, when the condition is worse. As an emergency dentist in Austin area, she offers before the work appointments as early as 7 AM and after hours and weekends depending on the severity of the problem. We are one of the few dental offices in Austin where you can get the same day dental emergency appointment or simply walk-in when you have dental emergency with a toothache or a broken jaw or teeth.
