Emergency Dental Services In Houston, TX

Sometimes things happen and it just isn’t possible to wait to see the dentist. If you’re experiencing a dental emergency call us right away, we’ll get you in as soon as possible to help. It’s never a good idea to let any dental problems sit, and prompt care can make a difference. 

What Qualifies As A Dental Emergency?

Keep in mind, some things like a chipped tooth that doesn’t cause pain or trauma to your mouth can wait a day or two. Things like a filling falling out or a mild toothache can also wait a short time, but you should still set up an appointment soon. 

However, certain situations require immediate, prompt care. Please contact us for emergency dental services if you’ve experienced any of the following:

Severe Pain

Excruciating or debilitating pain can be indicative of very serious issues that should not wait. While mild pain is not usually an emergency, the pain will always be tolerable.

Lost A Tooth

If it’s not a baby tooth making room for adult teeth, it shouldn’t come out. Whether it’s due to trauma or underlying conditions, contact us immediately. Lost teeth can sometimes be saved, but you must act quickly.

Loose teeth

Again, if it’s not making room for adult teeth, it should be stuck in there. Contact us immediately if your teeth aren’t secure so we can address the underlying issue.

Infection

If you’ve noticed any signs of infection such as an abscess or swelling in your gums or face, you should call immediately. Infections can be potentially life-threatening and should always be treated as quickly as possible.

 

Noticeable Blood

If there is active bleeding from your gums with no trauma this is a cause for concern. Contact us so we can discuss the circumstances and get you the care you need.

Trauma

If you suffered physical trauma and have cuts or lacerations inside your mouth but are not missing teeth, you should call us anyway. There may be emergency issues that aren’t immediately obvious.

Ideally, we hope to never have to treat you for any of these situations, but we are here if you need us. Many dental emergencies like a missing tooth due to a sports injury are unfortunate and unexpected. Remember though, many of these situations can be prevented with a proper dental hygiene routine and regular trips to the dentist.
