Why call Express Dentist?

It is generally more expensive to treat dental problems that have been going on for a while. Dental issues can progress over time and finally erupt into a painful problem. Longstanding dental problems are usually more difficult to treat and require more aggressive and costly treatment. That’s why it is a good idea to get treatment as soon as you experience symptoms.

If you find yourself experiencing a dental emergency, such as a bad toothache, it can be difficult to find a dentist who will see you after hours. Express Dentist is available around the clock to help you find an emergency dentist in Texas. You can get relief from your symptoms by calling the toll-free Express Dentist hotline at 1-844-593-0591. It is the easiest way to find high-quality, affordable, urgent dental care in Texas.

What is a dental emergency?

Most dental problems are not emergencies. They can be evaluated and treated in a few days. However, some dental issues need to be assessed and managed by an

emergency dentist. Without immediate care, these problems can lead to serious complications. Some of the signs and symptoms that indicate you should see an emergency dentist in Texas include:

  • Bleeding in the mouth that won’t stop
  • Severe tooth pain
  • A knocked-out tooth
  • A broken, chipped, or cracked tooth
  • Braces wire poking the cheeks or gums
  • Gum swelling or bleeding
  • Problems with opening or closing the mouth

If you have suffered facial trauma or have facial fractures or uncontrolled bleeding, you should go to the nearest emergency room without delay.

Where else do you have a presence?

We have a presence throughout the United States. This includes states such as Texas and Florida, and cities such as Mesa and Fresno.

What is the most common dental emergency Texas dentists treat?

Knowing about some of the common dental emergencies and how to deal with them can help you get the fast, immediate treatment you need. The Express Dentist hotline at 1-844-593-0591 can help you see a Texas emergency dentist and get the right treatment to prevent long-term damage. Here are some of the common dental emergencies that Texas dentists routinely treat:

Toothache

Some toothaches are mild and can be managed with home remedies. However, sometimes, a toothache can be debilitating and requires urgent dental care. The most common cause of tooth pain is tooth decay. If you use over-the-counter pain medications at home to suppress the pain, you may relieve the pain but you are not treating the underlying cause of your toothache. An emergency dentist in Texas will not only give you relief from the tooth pain but also treat the cause by filling a cavity or performing a root canal procedure.

Chipped or Broken tooth

A chipped or cracked tooth can happen if you bite down on something very hard or during sports activities. If it is one of your front teeth, it can ruin your beautiful smile. Plus, it can be painful and the broken tooth enamel can expose the internal tissues to bacteria. That’s why you should not delay getting emergency dental care for a broken tooth.

Knocked-Out Tooth

If you have had a tooth completely knocked out from your mouth, you need to see an emergency dentist within 30 minutes. The Express Dentist hotline at 1-844-593-0591 can help you get an urgent dental appointment in Texas.

You should try to locate the knocked-out tooth and handle it by the crown (the white chewing surface). If the tooth is dirty, rinse it gently in clean, cold water. Do not scrub the tooth and do not wrap it in paper. You should try to put the tooth back in its place in your mouth. If this is impossible, then keep the tooth moist in some milk or saliva. You can also use a tooth preservation kit if you have one on hand.

An emergency dentist in Texas can save your tooth and replant it back, provided you get to the dentist’s office within 30 minutes (sometimes dentists are able to save a tooth that has been out of the mouth longer). 1

Lost Filling or Crown

Fillings are used to treat cavities caused by tooth decay. Crowns restore damaged teeth to optimal function and appearance. If you lose or break a filling or crown, you need to get it treated right away. If you delay treatment, it can lead to re-infection or further tooth damage.

Broken Braces

Modern orthodontics has advanced greatly and braces wires and brackets are designed to withstand the normal forces of chewing. However, sometimes a braces component can break and stick out, causing discomfort by poking your cheek or gums. You should not try to fix the problem yourself by cutting a braces wire. If it is possible, cover the exposed part with orthodontic wax or some cotton gauze and see an emergency dentist as soon as possible.

Do emergency dentists in Texas accept dental insurance?

Emergency dental care may or may not be covered by your dental insurance plan. It will depend on the type of plan you have and the type of dental emergency you are experiencing.  

The Express Dentist hotline at 1-844-593-0591 can help you find affordable urgent dental care in Texas. Our partner providers accept most major dental insurance plans. They also offer flexible payment options for those who do not have dental insurance. Some Texas dentists have collaborated with third-party lenders who can give you a personal loan so that you can get the dental treatment you need even if you don’t have dental insurance.
