Get Same-Day Care for a Dental Emergency

Do you have a broken, knocked-out, or loose tooth and need immediate care? As a meticulous, careful, and skilled restorative dentist, Dr. Antoun of Sapphire Smiles is here to help. At Sapphire Smiles, we offer same-day, after-hours, and weekend appointments to ensure you always have access to the dental treatment you need.

What Is a Dental Emergency?

Pain or Bleeding

If you’re in pain or bleeding, or you have any oral issue that is causing you discomfort that you can’t treat on your own, this is a dental emergency.

A Cracked Tooth

A cracked tooth can lead to infection, but we can help with an emergency restorative appointment.

Knocked-Out Tooth

If your tooth has fallen out due to an oral injury, you will need to have it replaced in it’s socket within 1-2 hours before the root dies.

Persistent Toothache

A toothache that does not go away after a few days could be a sign of an infected tooth.

Loose or Missing Dental Work

Dental work that has fallen out or become damaged should be replaced or repaired immediately to keep your existing tooth structure healthy.

Flexible Scheduling for Emergencies

Dental emergencies can’t wait. The pain and discomfort of an emergency can be debilitating, and waiting for care can lead to further complications. That’s why we offer same-day, after-hours, and weekend emergency appointments at Sapphire Smiles. Give us a call at (832) 409-0400 to let us know about your issue.

If you can’t come in during our regular office hours, just let us know. We would be happy to accommodate your schedule and provide you with the emergency care you need. Dental emergencies don’t just happen during the work week! That’s why we offer all of our patients weekend appointments upon request. We’re flexible and can provide you with the care you need on your terms. 

If possible, we do ask that you call ahead so we can prepare for your visit. However, we also accept walk-in appointments during normal business hours at our office, which is located at 2522 Yale St #210 Houston, TX 77008. If you need immediate help, don’t hesitate to come in.

What to Do in a Dental Emergency

First, call the team at Sapphire Smiles right away for an appointment. If you have time, you can take steps to treat your pain and discomfort. Absorb blood with gauze or clean paper towels, and take medicine like ibuprofen or naproxen for pain. You can also use an ice pack applied to the cheek to help with swelling and inflammation.

However, these are all temporary solutions. It is crucial to get help right away to restore your smile and keep your teeth healthy. Contact us now to get started.

Why You Need to Get Care ASAP

Getting immediate care for your emergency ensures minimal complications and the best possible outcome. A knocked-out tooth, for example, will die unless it’s replaced within 1-2 hours of the tooth loss incident. Avoiding complications helps you save time, money, and discomfort.

In addition, immediate care ensures that you get relief from the pain and discomfort of your dental emergency. Toothaches, damaged teeth, and other such issues can be extraordinarily painful, so it is important to get help right away to avoid further pain.
