Emergency Dentistry

They say to expect the unexpected because you never can tell when emergencies will strike. Not being able to prepare will cause you to freak out and feel helpless, but worry no more. Here at Katy Dental Experts, we are all ready to provide the best and effective emergency dental care for you.

What Is Emergency Dentistry?

Emergency dental care, like any other field of dentistry, is not a one-size-fits-all solution. Instead, emergency dental care can refer to a wide range of procedures that can be used to address a wide range of problems. However, not every dental issue should be treated as an emergency. Consider the following questions to see if you can wait or if you need to see us right away:

      • Have you ever had a tooth fall out? The tooth could be saved if it is treated quickly.
      • Do you think you are infected? Swelling or knots on the gums, as well as a swollen face, could indicate an infection. A serious infection or abscess in your mouth can be life-threatening, so it is important to get it treated as soon as possible.
      • Do you have a set of crooked teeth? A loose tooth, even if it is not in pain, indicates a serious problem.
      • Is there blood in your mouth? Maybe you bite your tongue and you can’t control the bleeding. This could indicate that you require immediate medical attention. 
      • Are you in excruciating pain? If you are experiencing bleeding or severe pain and you can’t eat or drink, it is time to see us.

Our Katy emergency dentists are experienced in treating conditions that have a time limit, or a limited window of opportunity before the damage worsens or becomes permanent. Please contact us immediately or visit our clinic in Katy.

What to Do in an Emergency?

It is critical not to panic if you require emergency dental care. You should keep your cool, assess the situation, and then visit our clinic for consultation and treatment. Here are some first-aid tips to help you alleviate your discomfort until you can see our dentists if you are having any of these common dental emergencies.

      • For chipped or cracked teeth, warm water should be used to rinse your mouth. To reduce swelling, apply a cold compress to your cheek and take acetaminophen to relieve pain.
      • For a knocked-out tooth, pick up the crown while avoiding the root and rinse it. Insert it back after but if not possible, place the tooth in a glass of milk and contact us immediately or go to our clinic to possibly and quickly save your tooth.
      • For a bleeding mouth, make sure to use a clean cloth or paper towels to absorb excess blood.
      • For extreme pain, take a pain reliever then find someone who will accompany you to our clinic in Katy.

Dental emergencies do occur, despite the fact that a good dental hygiene routine can help keep them under control. Now that you know what constitutes a dental emergency, you understand how important it is to seek treatment as soon as possible to avoid the situation worsening.

Time is of the essence for a variety of different emergency procedures. That is why it is critical to call us right away so we can tell you what to do until the time you come to our clinic. If a problem arises, even if it is late at night or on a weekend, get in touch with Katy Dental Experts for immediate help.
