Dental Emergencies

 

Emergencies never happen at a convenient time, and dental emergencies are no different. If you live in Houston, Texas or the surrounding areas and find that you need dental emergency care, please contact Dentistry of Highland Village right away. We are a comprehensive dental practice that specializes in a wide array of different dental services. Dental emergencies should never be ignored, and if you call our practice, we will do all that we can to make sure you are seen right away.

Most dental emergencies have specific characteristics: severe pain, blood and/or a knocked out tooth. For the best chance of full restoration, it is imperative that your situation receive immediate attention. However, there are also times when you are not sure whether or not your concern equates a dental emergency. Perhaps you feel a twinge of pain in a tooth or you have extreme sensitivity when drinking cold or hot beverages. These may not seem like emergencies to you, however, they should not be ignored. Any type of pain or extreme sensitivity in or around a tooth is a sign that something is wrong. The sooner you receive attention for your dental emergency, whether large or small, the sooner you can find relief and the care you need.

Tooth Pain? We Can Help!

At Dentistry of Highland Village, we will thoroughly evaluate your teeth and gums to identify the cause of your tooth pain. We will provide appropriate treatment that will restore your oral health and relieve your pain.

Common Causes of Tooth Pain:

  • Tooth cavity – pain can be caused by any type of infection or decay in the tooth
  • Tooth sensitivity – receding gums can cause the tooth roots to be exposed and cause extreme twinges of pain
  • Teeth grinding – bruxism or teeth grinding can cause teeth to become sensitive and damaged
  • Loose dental fillings or crowns can be painful
  • Cracked tooth – a crack in the tooth can allow pain to be felt deep within the tooth

Depending on the cause of your tooth pain, our dentist will recommend treatment that will restore your oral health and prevent future damage, infection and pain. Contact our dental practice today to schedule an appointment to address your issue.
