WHAT IS A DENTAL EMERGENCY?

When any of these symptoms strike, don’t hesitate to visit our dental office in Cypress for immediate treatment!

While cracked teeth, cavities, and gingivitis can be alarming, not all dental problems require emergency attention. They should still be looked at by one of our expert dentists, but they can wait a day or two as you schedule a visit to our office later in the week. However, when a dental emergency does arrive, time is of the essence! If you experience any of the following signs of a dental emergency, please see us as soon as you can:

  • Persistent toothache lasting more than 24hrs
  • Excessive bleeding
  • White pimple forming on the gum
  • Teeth that are loose
  • New spaces appearing between teeth
  • Jaw and mouth swelling
  • Painful cracked or broken tooth
  • Chipped tooth with sharp edges or fragments
  • Knocked-out tooth
  • Tooth suddenly becoming numb

Please don’t hesitate to call our office at 281.562.7288 if you need emergency care. Your advance warning helps our dentists prepare so you can speed through the waiting room and get the immediate care you need as soon as you arrive.

ROOT CANAL VS. TOOTH EXTRACTION

If you need a root canal or dental extraction, you can count on our emergency team to make sure your procedure goes smoothly.

When it comes to a severe tooth infection, a cavity may be bad enough to give you a critical ultimatum: do you get a root canal or tooth extraction?

ROOT CANAL

Root canals can save a tooth on the brink of dying. They are considered an emergency dentist’s final defense against tooth decay. At this stage, decay has reached the sensitive pulp at the tooth’s center and is attacking the blood vessels and nerves keeping it alive. During a root canal, the deep infection is removed, often clearing out an entire tooth’s canal or root. Any tooth abscesses that have formed are drained. The tooth is then sterilized and filled before being reinforced with a dental filling or crown.

TOOTH EXTRACTION

However, if too much of the pulp has been destroyed, a root canal won’t be enough to save the tooth. The tooth will need extracting. Teeth removals should only be performed in last resort scenarios where the tooth can’t be saved via root canal. The extraction process is simple. If the tooth has fully emerged from the gum, it is loosened with a dental elevator tool before being pulled free.

Tooth extraction isn’t needed solely for deep cavities. An emergency dentist may need to remove your tricky and painful tooth if it is:

  • Impacted and infecting nearby teeth
  • Severely broken
  • Fractured below the gum line
  • Significantly loosened by advanced gum disease
  • Crowding your smile

GUM DISEASE EMERGENCY

When gum disease strikes, it’s critical that you get the dental help you need fast!

Plaque and bacteria don’t just affect your teeth. They can also spread below the gum lines and cause serious damage to the sensitive soft tissues. As gum disease develops, it can quickly turn from mild gingivitis into periodontitis, putting your smile’s life at risk. There are several consequences of leaving gum disease unchecked:

RECEDING GUMS

As bacteria and plaque attack the gums, the soft tissues pull away from the gums, creating pockets that can trap more food and plaque. The gums start receding, weakening your teeth’s support.

LOOSE TEETH

Gum disease also starts attacking the bone and connective tissues holding your teeth in place. As the infection worsens, your teeth can lose their mooring and start moving out of position. This is not only painful but will change the look and shape of your smile.

DENTAL ABSCESS

With late-stage gum disease, a dental abscess may develop in the soft tissues at a tooth’s base. Abscesses are painful and dangerous pockets of pus that must be safely drained. If they burst, they can lead to even worse complications as the infection spreads.

TOOTH LOSS

In worst-case scenarios, gum disease can be severe enough that a tooth loses too much bone and soft tissues and cannot be saved. A dentist may need to remove the tooth before it falls out on its own.
