If you're having a dental emergency, I think this is the place that you need to come. We are ready and waiting to pick up the phone and have you into the office. When patients call with an emergency, we're able to get them in the same day, almost at no matter what hour you call, our answer is, “How fast can you get here?”
Come on in. Let us at least help you find out what's going on, find out which tooth it is exactly, what the problem is. We can take a quick picture, show you. You can see what's going on and then we'll figure out whether it's something that we can do that day, whether it's something if you want to wait and get it done, and schedule to get it done another day. That's the first step.
Call us. We'll say, “How quick can you come? How quick can you get here?“ We'll give you an answer and help you know what's your diagnosis—what’s going on. I've got a tooth that's bothering me: what is it? How much is it going to cost? How long does it take to fix it? What does it need? What are my options?
We find out that patients really like having us be that first call, so they can at least get to the bottom of it. Don't wait to find out if—try and wait to see what it is. Don't try and Google to see what it is. It's not an expense here at our office to come in and just give you an answer and help you find out what it is that's going on and make a plan to get it corrected.
What qualifies as a dental emergency?
A dental emergency can happen at any time. Your child could flip over the handlebars on his bike and knock out a tooth, your mom could bite down on something hard and fracture a tooth, or you could wake up in the middle of the night with unbearable pain due to an abscess. In any of the scenarios below, make us your first call.
- You’ve chipped or cracked a tooth.
- You’ve knocked out or loosened tooth.
- You have swelling in your mouth.
- You have bumps or abrasions on your gums.
- You have a severe oral infection or are in severe oral pain.
This is not a full list of dental emergencies. If you’re unsure whether or not you’re having an emergency, please do not hesitate to call us, and we can help you figure out your next steps.
Will you still get my call if the office is closed?
Yes. Don’t worry — if you call after office hours, your call will go directly to Dr. Memmott’s cell phone. He will guide you through what you can do following a dental emergency and get you into our office for an emergency appointment. Dr. Memmott understands that dental emergencies happen. Even if you don’t have one yourself, you’re likely to be caring for a child or an elderly adult who will need immediate assistance at some point.
If you have a dental emergency, don’t hesitate to call us at 832-791-1706 . We’re here to care for your entire family whenever your need arises.
