Dental emergencies can happen in the blink of an eye, or they may build and build over time until the patient is scared and in serious pain – whatever your or your family member’s unique situation is, you can trust in Denton Dental Center to be there for you during these difficult times. Dr. Todd Balington has plenty of experience with treating urgent situations, and he and the rest of our team will make time for emergency cases as soon as we possibly can so that you can experience fast relief. If you’re from the Denton area, Corinth, Krum, or another nearby location, don’t hesitate to contact us for help during a dental emergency. In many cases, we’re able to see patients on the same day they call. If we’re unable to treat you right away or your emergency does not necessarily require immediate treatment, we’ll walk you through at-home care over the phone to ensure you are safe and pain free until you reach our office.
