Emergency dentistry provides same-day care (whenever possible) for potentially serious oral health problems and injuries. If you or a loved one experiences oral trauma or experiences another issue that causes pain or difficulty biting and chewing, make an appointment at Baytown Gentle Dental right away.
Early intervention and treatment can limit the pain, prevent infection from spreading, and preserve your teeth and gums for years to come.
At Baytown Gentle Dental, the team uses emergency dentistry to treat:
You might also benefit from emergency dentistry if you get something lodged between your teeth, like a toothpick or another foreign object.
If you live an active lifestyle, you’re more likely to experience a dental emergency. Activities like playing contact sports, riding bikes, or working a physically demanding job increase the risk of trauma to your teeth and gums.
Other factors that might result in a dental emergency include chipping your tooth on a cup or a glass bottle, biting down on a hard object like a popcorn kernel or an ice cube, or using your teeth to open plastic packaging.
Not all oral health problems require an immediate trip to the dentist. If you develop a minor toothache or your gums bleed when you brush your teeth, try taking over-the-counter medication or rinsing your mouth with warm saltwater. If your symptoms persist or interfere with your daily routine, contact the team at Baytown Gentle Dental right away.
At Baytown Gentle Dental, an emergency dentistry appointment begins with an oral exam, oral X-rays, and a discussion of your symptoms. After gathering the necessary information, your provider develops a custom care plan that relieves the pain and restores your smile as quickly as possible.
