One of the most important elements of our practice, Spring Dental Arts in Spring, Texas, is emergency dentistry.

Using the latest techniques and technology, we can restore lost teeth, correct jaw alignment, and treat the source of intense pain.
If this is a service that you require, don’t hesitate to come to see us as soon as possible. No appointment is necessary.
A common problem that our office encounters is that people don’t know when to come to see us. People tend to be afraid of wasting resources or money, even when they need assistance. If you or a loved one are experiencing any of the following scenarios, you should see us right away:
In these situations, immediate care is necessary to preserve overall oral health and wellness. We highly recommend having someone accompany you to our office as it is likely you will need an anesthetic during treatment and a ride home afterward.
If you or a loved one is experiencing a dental emergency, it can be difficult to think of what to do. The first step, although difficult, is to remain calm. If a tooth or teeth have been knocked out or broken, try to find the pieces. Resist the urge to wash them. If natural tissue is left on the root, it is possible for our dentist to reattach the tissue and reinsert the tooth.
If someone is experiencing intense bleeding or pain, bite down on paper towel, and consider taking an over the counter pain medication. If someone has sprained or broken their jaw, have them hold it closed to avoid causing more damage or unnecessary pain. Always try to have someone with you who can help explain the situation and drive you home after treatment.
