You wouldn’t leave a broken arm untreated, so it’s important to understand that severe tooth pain or a dental injury is also cause for seeking dental urgent care. Fortunately, there are skilled and compassionate dentists in Conroe available to provide emergency dental care.
Where Is Emergency Dental Care Near Me?
If you’re experiencing dental pain that’s getting in the way of a restful night’s sleep or a productive day at work, you can’t wait several days for your appointment like you would if you were scheduling routine care. That’s not a problem at our office as we do our best to see patients, like you, who need urgent care. Call our office today and we’ll do our best to schedule you with a dentist for emergency care on the same day. Our dentists can assess and treat your problem and have you feeling great again.
Understanding Your Emergency Dental Service Costs
A one-size-fits-all cost doesn’t exist for emergency dental services because the price is dependent on the type of treatment you need and the current state of your oral health. Once our dentist has met with you and assessed your case, we’ll provide you with a clear estimate of your costs, and we’ll also take the time to answer any questions that you have.

What Emergency Dental Services Are Available?
Our dentists provide emergency services that will help you regain a healthy, pain-free smile. Many patients aren’t aware that they don’t have to wait for certain procedures when they need them done urgently.
Emergency Extractions: If your tooth is damaged beyond repair, there is no need to wait to have that tooth taken out. Paying the utmost attention to providing a comfortable experience, our dentists can remove the problem tooth and develop a treatment plan for a replacement if desired.
Emergency Wisdom Teeth Extractions: Wisdom teeth are responsible for many urgent visits to the dentist. These teeth are prone to becoming impacted, meaning they don’t erupt through the gums as they should. That can lead to a number of painful problems. If your wisdom teeth are causing you pain, please call us today.
Root Canals: A root canal can save your tooth and get you back to a life that’s free from dental pain. If you think you might have an infection at the root of a tooth, please call us right away.
Root Canals for Children: Children often need root canals to save their teeth. This procedure is a safe and effective way to stop tooth pain and preserve the natural tooth.
Tooth Extractions: We can schedule your tooth extraction as part of a routine appointment. Please call us to learn more.
How Do I Know If I Need Emergency Dental Treatment?
If you’ve experienced a serious dental injury, it makes sense to go to an emergency dental clinic right away. There are also less obvious problems that require urgent care.
Abscessed Teeth: An abscessed tooth is typically swollen and painful. When it comes to treating this type of problem, the sooner you see a dentist, the less likely it is that the infection will spread and create further issues.
Cracked or Broken Teeth: Teeth can become chipped or cracked for a variety of reasons. Regardless of how your tooth was damaged, it needs to be treated quickly because a broken tooth is vulnerable to infection and decay.
Fractured or Broken Jaw: If you have a fractured or broken jaw, your outcome for proper healing is excellent when you see an emergency dentist right away. If you are experiencing bleeding or difficulty breathing after a jaw injury, seek emergency medical attention right away.
Lost, Broken or Loose Crowns: Dental crowns are strong, but they aren’t 100 percent resistant to damage. If you have a broken, loose or missing crown, call us for an urgent restoration or replacement.
Dental Infections: A toothache can be a sign of a dental infection that requires treatment to prevent an abscess from developing. Our skilled dentists will treat the infection and restore your comfort.
Knocked-out Teeth: If you or your loved one has a knocked-out tooth, it needs to be re-implanted as soon as possible. If a child’s baby tooth has been knocked out, the child should see a dentist as soon as possible for an evaluation.
Loose or Lost Fillings: When a filling loosens or falls out, you’ll probably experience pain in the affected tooth. See a dentist who can evaluate the health of the tooth and replace the filling.
Severe Gum or Facial Swelling: Swelling around the mouth or swelling of the gums can happen for many reasons. Often, an abscessed tooth is to blame. Call us for an appointment and evaluation.
Severe Toothache: A severe toothache requires swift attention. Our dental professionals are here to treat the problem and provide relief from pain.
Do Emergency Dental Services Cost a Lot?
A dental emergency can be frightening, and worrying about how you’ll pay for treatment only makes things worse. Fortunately, our dental office is dedicated to providing affordable emergency dental treatment. We accept most insurance plans and will help you get the most out of your coverage. If you don’t have insurance, you might be interested in MetroCare, which is a discount dental plan. A yearly membership costs $129, and once you purchase your plan, you will be eligible immediately to receive discounts on a range of dental services. You can save as much as 20 to 80 percent off the cost of treatment. Please call us for more details.
