Emergency Dentist in Houston
Dental emergencies need immediate attention, but the Emergency Room isn’t always equipped to handle your situation as well as a dentist can. Dr. Marilyn Jones and the team at Houston Biological Dentist offer emergency services for patients looking for an “emergency dentist near me.”
Same-day appointments for dental emergencies
When you have an urgent dental issue, we are here to help. Dr. Jones has over 40 years of experience helping patients with dental issues large and small, and her office is equipped to handle all of your needs. Dental emergencies can include:
Tooth loss: in many cases, Dr. Jones can save a lost tooth. We’ll instruct you on the best way to preserve your tooth before your appointment and determine your best treatment option during your examination. If the tooth can’t be saved, we’ll help you decide the best replacement option.
Pain and sensitivity: If you’re dealing with a toothache, or you can’t take hot and cold touching your tooth, it’s likely a sign that infection has reached your nerve. We use state-of-the-art diagnostic equipment to identify your issue and plan the best treatment for your issue.
Broken wires and brackets on orthodontics: Broken braces can cause cuts and sores in your mouth, and they need to be fixed as soon as possible.
Broken or lost fillings and other restorations: Crowns, fillings, and other restorations are bonded in place to protect your teeth from damage and seal out bacteria. Once they fall out, you need to have the area disinfected and have a new restoration placed to avoid issues.
Holistic dentistry for healthy smiles
Dr. Jones is committed to using conservative treatments that look beyond your teeth and focus on your overall wellbeing. She never uses products containing mercury or harsh chemicals, but we go a step beyond when planning your treatment. We offer patients biocompatibility testing to ensure we select the best dental materials for your restorations and treatments. By identifying what materials you are sensitive to, we can reduce swelling and mitigate the risk of a reaction so you can heal faster and keep your restoration in place for longer. We use advanced technology like dental lasers and ozone therapy to promote oral health and minimize each treatments’ impact on your body.
If you have pain or sensitivity in your tooth, don’t hesitate to seek help. Contact our office in Houston at (713) 429-0071 to get the treatment you need as soon as possible.
