We Can Respond To Your Dental Emergency

When you have a sudden injury to one of your teeth, it can be difficult to concentrate on seeking care. Because time is of the essence in repairing your accident, knowing who to contact ahead of time can resolve some of your frustration. If you crack or knock out one of your teeth, collecting missing pieces can help you restore your tooth to its original condition. Emergency services are also vital to treating sudden toothaches that may indicate the presence of a dangerous infection. When you call our office, we will walk you through the steps of preparing for your appointment and get you in as soon as we can! After getting your pain under control, we will move towards placing a restoration to stabilize your bite and return the appearance of your healthy smile.

At your Katy, TX dental practice, we are standing by to help you when emergencies strike. We know that no one expects sudden traumatic events and that is why we provide a comforting attitude at each step of our response. While it may not always be possible to save an injured tooth, we will do everything under our power to make it happen or provide a valuable replacement as an alternative.

When To Call Your Dentist For An Emergency

While certain oral health problems like tooth decay are taken care of in your routine cleanings and exams, others may need to be seen as soon as possible. By staying on top of your preventive care, you can enjoy a robust smile that is more resistant to decay or infection, but accidents or sports injuries can happen to almost anyone. If this happens to you, schedule an appointment as soon as possible to receive the care you need.

Scheduling Your Emergency Response And Receiving Care

When you have a dental emergency, having your tooth inspected by a dental professional is necessary to stem immediate damage from compounding. If you have a situation you believe to be life-threatening, or cannot get bleeding under control, head to the nearest ER or call 911 first. After assisting, ER doctors will release you to seek dental treatment. When heading to the dentist, collect any loose dental material in a jar of milk or saltwater bath to preserve the tooth. Remember to never touch a tooth by its roots, but rather hold it by the crown. When you reach our office, we will repair your tooth and discuss further options for returning the appearance of your smile.
