The category of “dental emergency” is broader than you may think. One obvious example of an emergency is a dental injury caused by oral trauma, like a cracked, loose, or knocked-out tooth. But lots of other things count, too. This includes toothaches that won’t go away, loose or pulled-out fillings and crowns, and even things like having an object lodged between your teeth that you can’t remove on your own. In general, a dental emergency is any problem that’s causing you pain and discomfort, and that you can’t solve on your own. So don’t wait. Contact FLO Dentistry at (713) 893-5526 for an emergency appointment in Rice Military and get the help you need.
Getting immediate care for a dental emergency saves you time and money, prevents further complications, and is the best way to relieve your pain. The sooner you get help, the better!
If you’ve lost a tooth, grab it by the top. Rinse it off. Put it into a plastic container of cold milk, and come to our office within 1-2 hours to have it replaced. If you lose a piece of dental work, put it into a small plastic bag and bring it in with you.
You can use a clean strip of gauze, a cotton ball, or paper towels to absorb blood. Place gentle pressure on the bleeding area to help reduce blood flow. If you’re in pain, you can ice the affected area to help with discomfort, and take medicine like ibuprofen. This will help you stay more comfortable until your appointment at FLO Dentistry.
You can’t handle dental emergencies on your own. You need a dentist to provide restorative care, fix your tooth and restore your smile. So make sure you come into our office ASAP. Getting immediate care always leads to the best possible treatment outcome for your emergency.

TMD pain can extend to the neck, ear, face, upper back and shoulders. It can also cause migraines.
Some dental emergencies can wait for treatment. But others, like knocked-out teeth, demand immediate same-day care. That’s why we sometimes offer weekend appointments at FLO Dentistry. Dr. Omar Amin is here to help, even when you suffer an injury or a dental emergency on the weekend. Give us a call now at (713) 893-5526 to schedule your consultation.
Stress can make TMD worse. Clenching of the jaw and bruxism can wear out the jaw and enhance TMJ pain.
