Emergency Exams in Katy, TX

Most people don’t realize they have oral health problems until they have a dental emergency. When you are suffering from severe pain or an infection, you should visit the dentist at the earliest to avoid dental complications.  At Premier Dental Studio of Katy, the dentists help the patients in need and offer same-day emergency appointments for the patients.

What Are Emergency Exams?

An emergency exam is a dental examination process that is performed when you are experiencing a significant dental emergency. This exam will help us diagnose and treat your problem as soon as possible to reduce the chances of further damage and pain. During the emergency exam, we will review your medical history and perform a full oral examination to determine the cause of your pain. If we discover any abnormalities during the exam, we will address them immediately.

What Are the Common Reasons for Dental Emergencies?

A number of reasons may lead to a dental emergency, including:
  • Toothache or pain due to cavities or other teeth issues
  • Accidents that damage your teeth, cheeks, or lips
  • Severe tooth sensitivity
  • Fractured or displaced teeth
  • Bleeding gums

What Happens During Emergency Exams?

During your emergency exam, the dentist will carefully evaluate your mouth for signs of damage and determine whether any treatment is necessary. Sometimes, we find that the problem does not require treatment but can be solved with over-the-counter medication or by using special strategies at home such as toothpaste containing fluoride. We may also recommend some home remedies such as using ice packs to reduce swelling or drinking warm liquids to soothe your throat.

If necessary, we will provide you with prescriptions for antibiotics and other medications that can help relieve your pain and discomfort. Depending on the damage, we may also recommend restorative care or extractions. The dentist will also discuss ways to prevent similar problems in the future such as selecting the right toothbrush, flossing daily, making regular dental visits, etc.

Any treatment is initiated only after the patient's consent. The dentist provides all the information regarding the treatment to the patient which helps them to have better insight regarding the procedure.
