When Houston, TX area patients should visit an emergency dentist
As much as patients may take good care of their smiles, there can be times in which unexpected situations occur and Houston, TX families need the assistance of an emergency dentist. An emergency dentist provides services as needed when unforeseen problems occur. They typically provide same-day treatment for the most common dental emergencies.
At Vivid Dental in Houston, TX, we provide emergency care whenever possible. Patients who are dealing with an unexpected dental problem that causes pain or keeps them from functioning properly should seek the assistance of an emergency dentist as soon as possible. Common emergencies that may require help from a dental professional include:
- A knocked out tooth
- A broken tooth
- Severe pain and discomfort
- Severe swelling and bleeding that does not subside
- Inability to heal after oral surgery (or signs of infection)
- Filling that has fallen out
- Restorations such as crowns and bridges that have come loose
Patients who are dealing with a life-threatening condition are encouraged to contact 911 or have someone transport them to the nearest hospital emergency room.
Vivid Dental provides family, general, cosmetic, and emergency dentistry for new and existing patients in the Houston, TX area and can assist individuals in maintaining their oral health even after the unexpected occurs. We provide comprehensive care and treatment necessary when problems arise and can offer individuals same-day treatment in most circumstances.
If you are dealing with a dental emergency and need appropriate treatment as soon as possible, contact Vivid Dental today to schedule an impromptu appointment with our team. We can schedule you in and have you taken care of and on with your day in no time at all. When patients are in pain and cannot receive treatment that same day, we can provide medication and treatment that can at least alleviate the problem temporarily until further attention can be given.
Additionally, our practice takes most major dental insurance plans and can work with providers to help attain the best coverage possible for any emergency that requires our attention. We want to ensure our patients get as much reimbursement as possible through their dental insurance plans to lessen the out-of-pocket expenses for these unexpected situations.
