Clear Lake Emergency Dentist
Do you need an emergency dentist? Rosas Family Dentistry is Clear Lake’s trusted oral care provider. No matter if you are a new patient, we can help!
Typically, emergency dentistry needs to be completed within an hour or two. Our Clear Lake office will usually arrange to see you as soon as feasibly possible. Rest assured we are committed to gentle, high-quality treatment that will get you out of pain as quickly as we can.
Emergency Dental Treatments Available
Common dental emergencies that our Clear Lake dentist treats include:
Does your tooth hurt? Is it hard to chew or eat on one side of the mouth? Do you feel more sensitive than usual?
Toothache symptoms can change over time. Some are very painful while others can cause a dull, constant ache. Our emergency dentist in Clear Lake can help you quickly get relief so you don’t suffer from pain or risk losing your tooth.
Is there a small bump or large swelling on the gums near your tooth? A tooth abscess may not cause any pain. It can, however, be very painful and prevent you from being able to sleep at night, eat, or go to work even if you’ve taken pain reliever. Depending on the situation, most emergency treatment for abscessed teeth includes either endodontic therapy (root canal treatment) or an extraction.
Knocked-out, Broken or Chipped Teeth
Broken teeth, chipped enamel, or completely knocked-out teeth must be treated immediately. For the best chance of bonding the tooth together or reimplanting it into the socket, our Clear Lake dentist needs to see you within the next 1-2 hours. Keep the tooth fragment moistened by soaking it in milk or contact solution, placing it in a sealed container (so you don’t lose it) and bring it with you to your appointment. If the entire tooth is knocked out, you can attempt to reimplant it and hold it in place. Just don’t force it into the socket or touch the root.
Broken Dental Work (Crowns, Bridges, etc.)
A new cavity is often the reason why a dental restoration, such as a crown or filling falls out. Don’t bite on your tooth or chew anything on that side of your mouth. Bring your restoration with you to your appointment.
A broken denture can ruin your day. Our Clear Lake emergency dentist will repair or replace your denture as soon as possible.
Should I Go to the Emergency Room?
You should immediately go to an emergency room if you experience severe bleeding or facial swelling. For a toothache, call Clear Lake’s new family dentist, Dr. Rosas.
Affordable Emergency Dentistry in Clear Lake
Rosas Family Dentistry works closely to your dental insurance carrier to maximize your coverage, and minimize any out of pocket costs for emergency treatment. That way you don’t have to worry about affording the emergency dental care you desperately need.
There are also flexible options to help you pay for emergency treatment even if you don’t have dental insurance or the coverage you thought you did. Our treatment coordinator will review your payment options, helping you find something that works for your family’s budget.
If not treated promptly, dental emergencies can lead to more complicated and costly situations. By providing minimally-invasive treatment, Dr. Rosas can reduce your out of pocket dental costs in the future.
Same-Day Emergency Treatment
Our Clear Lake office will make every effort to accommodate you with an emergency appointment as soon as possible. Usually within 24 hours. We’ll take steps to help you get out of pain, then what to do to prevent further discomfort. Sometimes same-day treatment is appropriate (like a filling or extraction) while other times it’s best to address the infection and have you come back for a more permanent solution a few days later. We will provide you with a detailed treatment plan that explains all of the steps, fees, and appropriate procedures, so that you always know what to expect.
As a family dentist, Dr. Rosas offers emergency dentistry for all ages. From young toddlers to senior citizens and everyone between. Many of our patients also come from surrounding communities, like League City, Webster, Friendswood, and the adjacent communities.
