Emergency soft tissue damage treatment available in Houston area

man with getting treatment for soft tissue damage from dentist

Emergencies are situations that occur when we least expect them. The same is true for dental emergencies that need to be addressed as soon as possible for better health, wellness, and functionality. When injury has occurred to the soft tissue, this damage will require treatment. This is especially the case when it comes to avoiding infection.
Soft tissue damage can vary greatly, but typically involves injury, cuts, or other problems associated with the gum tissue or even the tissues inside the cheek or the lips. Impacts or cuts can be extremely painful and need to be addressed by a dental professional as soon as possible. At Vivid Dental, we take patients in the same day whenever possible, or walk them through what to do over the phone until they can be seen by our staff. Dr. Monti Harpalani encourages patients to call whenever a problem arises. Common dental emergencies may include:

  • Trauma to teeth
  • Swollen jaw
  • Abscess
  • Infection of a tooth
  • Lost restoration
  • Denture damage
  • Accident
  • Broken or fractured teeth
  • Severe toothache

Treatment for soft tissue damage will vary depending on what occurred. In many situations, stitches may be necessary as well as antibiotics. This addresses bacteria that can negatively impact the smile’s health. Our dental team walks patients through the process of treatment so they understand what is being done and why. Our practice also accepts many dental insurance policies, which can reduce or eliminate the costs of treatment for many of our patients. Before we begin services, we talk to patients about the plans of action to bring their smiles back to health and work together to develop treatment plans that suit everyone’s needs and budget.
Houston, Texas area families are welcome to contact Vivid Dental to schedule an emergency visit whenever necessary. Our friendly front office team can be reached at (281) 809 4902. We encourage patients to contact us whenever problems arise for immediate care and attention!
