Is there a dentist near me offering emergency dental care?

When dental problems arise, it is critical that patients have access to the care they need with an emergency dentist. Emergency dental care is often unexpected and can occur outside regular dental office hours. In such situations, you must connect with a provider offering same-day dentistry and emergency care when needed! If you live in The Woodlands, Texas and are experiencing a dental emergency, we invite you to visit the office of Dr. Leah Zils.

When should I see an emergency dentist?

There may be several instances where you may need to visit a dentist on the same day. Below is a sample of some of the more common dental emergencies Drs. Leah Zils and Shirley Cagle see in our office:

  • Knocked-out tooth. When trauma occurs and a tooth is knocked out of the mouth, it is crucial to see an emergency dentist as soon as possible. If the tooth can be located, handle it carefully by the crown (the top of the tooth) and rinse gently under clean water. Do not touch or remove any tissue fragments on the tooth’s root (or the bottom). Place it in a container with milk, saline, or saliva and bring it to the dentist. It is essential to see an emergency dentist within 30 minutes for the highest chances of successful reimplantation.
  • Severe toothache. Another common scenario that may require same-day dentistry is severe tooth pain. This could be caused by various factors, such as an abscessed tooth, a cracked tooth, or even a dental restoration that needs to be replaced. It is essential to see an emergency dentist as soon as possible to diagnose and treat the underlying cause of tooth pain.
  • Broken or chipped tooth. A fractured or chipped tooth might be caused by a variety of reasons, including biting into something hard, facial trauma, or even decay, weakening the tooth structure. If you experience a broken or chipped tooth, seeing an emergency dentist as soon as possible is vital to assess the damage and provide necessary treatment..
