Best Candidates for Emergency Dental Care
Anyone can experience a dental emergency at any time, and we know they often happen after hours or on the weekends. We are here to help when such emergencies occur. Please call our Houston, TX team immediately to receive an assessment and instructions on proper care until you can see the dentist. Injury, trauma, or damage to your teeth, gums, or jaw needs evaluation by one of our general dentists like Dr. Campbell as soon as possible. Not every dental emergency is painful or uncomfortable, but it is important to be checked by a dentist to minimize damage to your mouth. Dr. Campbell treats all types of dental emergencies, including common ones like knocked-out or partially knocked-out (extruded) teeth, broken or cracked teeth or fillings, tooth abscesses or infections, injury to the lips or soft tissues, dislodged or loose bridges or crowns, unexplained bleeding, and ongoing toothaches or pain. Our first priority will be to reduce your pain during your emergency, and then we will work to provide personalized palliative or restorative care to treat your concerns.
What To Expect with Emergency Dental Care
At Made Ya Smile Spring Cypress, your comfort during your dental emergency is our priority as we provide high-quality care and we will try to minimize any discomfort as quickly as possible. To address your emergency needs as quickly as we can, we will get you in to see Dr. Campbell. Your treatment and care will be personalized based on your unique needs to return you to health and help you get on with enjoying your smile. 3D cone beam scans or digital x-rays of your teeth and jaw may be needed to help Dr. Campbell comprehensively understand and treat your dental emergency.
We will present our findings and review your options for treatment with you before we provide care for you. Depending on what is appropriate for your health, we may provide treatment at the time of your first emergency appointment or take a palliative approach and ask you to come back (such as in the case of swelling or infection). If you have extreme bleeding or have suffered facial, head, or neck trauma, please go straight to the emergency room. Your dental or cosmetic needs can be addressed once you have healed and your situation is stabilized.
Emergency Dental Care Recovery
After Dr. Campbell has provided any necessary emergency dental care and assessed your situation, you will receive instructions on how to care for your injury and we will schedule any follow-up treatment that may be necessary. If you have any infection or pain, antibiotic or pain medication may be prescribed. Cold compresses or ice packs can also help reduce any swelling in the face or jaw, and a soft food diet may be best to follow until your discomfort subsides and your oral health is secure.
Depending on your needs, we may recommend options to minimize your risk for dental emergencies in the future. Custom-fit athletic mouth guards can greatly reduce the risk of oral injury when they are worn during sports and other physical activity. Nail-biting, ice chewing, and biting on hard objects are parafunctional habits that can cause many problems. We recommend these habits are stopped in order to lessen the risk of teeth and restorations chipping or breaking. After your emergency is resolved, it is vital that you follow proper brushing and flossing and maintain routine bi-annual cleaning and exam visits to support a healthy, radiant smile.
Emergency Dental Care Insurance Coverage
Dental insurance may cover some dental emergency procedures, and a member of our team will check into your plan and let you know of any personal costs you may incur. At Made Ya Smile Spring Cypress, we know that dental emergencies are unexpected. Because of this, we make it a priority to work with you to identify treatment and payment solutions that fit within your budget. We accept several payment options including flexible low- or- no interest financing solutions.
