We know how stressful and frightening a dental emergency or facial trauma can be. Be assured we treat all emergency cases with a sense of urgency.

With an oral and maxillofacial surgeon, our team at ArkLaTex Oral & Maxillofacial Surgery can treat many emergency conditions that you might think require a trip to the emergency room. Oral surgeons are specialists who complete four years of advanced training beyond dental school—including medical training—encompassing jaw treatments, dental implants, wisdom tooth removal, and anesthesia. Our entire surgical team is here to provide effective, timely treatment for even the most complex dental emergency in Shreveport, Bossier City, and Natchitoches, LA.
Our treatment suites in Shreveport, Bossier City, and Natchitoches, LA are outfitted with the latest dental technology, empowering us to offer you fast, precise diagnoses, and timely care. We’ll alleviate any pain you may be having when you come in and keep you comfortable during treatment with our anesthesia options. Be assured that at ArkLaTex Oral & Maxillofacial Surgery we’re fully compliant with the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) and American Dental Association (ADA) sterilization standards for our facility and all our equipment to preserve your health, safety, and peace of mind.
There are some ways to treat your pain and assist in your own recovery before seeing an oral and maxillofacial surgeon. If you have a toothache or are experiencing oral pain, you can take an over-the-counter pain reliever as directed on the packaging. If you have a tooth knocked out and still have the tooth in one piece, clean it with water but be careful not to remove any attached tissue. Place the tooth in a small container of milk to preserve it. We may be able to put the tooth back into place if we’re able to treat it soon enough.
PLEASE NOTE: If you’re having head or neck pain, are unable to stop bleeding, are feeling dizzy, or have suffered severe trauma, please get medical attention without delay. Call 911 or have a responsible party drive you to the nearest emergency room or hospital. A full-time medical practitioner is the best choice for your emergency care in such cases.
