Patients who are experiencing a dental emergency may need to obtain same-day care from a professional who can help address the problem and resolve the issue that brings them into a dental practice. Our dentist office in Houston, TX, Houston Biological Dentist, provides a wide range of services for patients, including emergency dental care.
What is a dental emergency?
Patients are often confused as to what constitutes a dental emergency. Dental emergencies are situations that arise unexpectedly that require the care and attention of a professional as soon as possible. Dr. Marilyn Jones and her team at Houston Biological Dentist work routinely with patients who experience problems that need to be addressed immediately.
What is considered a dental emergency?
There are a few common situations that will require a dental assessment and treatment as soon as possible. These might include:
- A knocked-out tooth
- Cracked/chipped tooth
- Severe toothache
- Lost restoration, including crowns, fillings, or veneers
- Loose restoration
- Appliance adjustments (partial dentures)
Can I get same-day care?
Dentists understand that emergencies that require assistance can arise when we least expect them. That is why Dr. Marilyn Jones ensures that she has time throughout the day for the unexpected. She leaves appointments open for individuals who need same-day care due to an emergency, ensuring both new and established patients get the care they need.
What happens during an emergency appointment?
First, patients call the office to book an appointment time and arrive at their scheduled timeslot. Then, our dental team will assess the situation and make recommendations for the patient. Patients who are new to the practice might also require x-rays to check overall oral health and wellness. Then, treatment is often performed the same day to help patients get back to their lives with minimal interruption whenever possible!
