Obtaining much-needed professional care during a dental emergency can be an inconvenient, painful situation. Unexpected dental emergencies can be caused by athletic injuries, trauma, tripping, or even just biting into hard foods. Our dentist and his professional staff provide prompt emergency oral health care in a compassionate atmosphere. We can effectively address all sorts of serious dental problems for Houston, TX patients, including damaged fillings, toothaches, and knocked-out (avulsed) or fractured teeth. Tooth damage doesn't always trigger pain so it's really important to have your teeth looked at for any any oral trauma. At Patrick V. Nicosia D.D.S., M.S., Inc., we always strive to offer emergency visits as quickly as possible.

People of all ages can have a dental emergency. Various kinds of emergencies include lingering oral pain, knocked-out and cracked teeth, oral abscesses, loose restorations (from fillings to dentures), oral bleeding or sensitivity, and other tooth-related injuries. Receiving the urgent dental treatment required as soon as you can is the best method to relieve dental pain and maintain your oral health. In many situations, it could mean the difference between keeping a tooth or not. Since even small damage and sensitivity can lead to worse problems if left untreated, it is best to call our office immediately for any dental emergency.

There are several benefits to emergency dental care, including:

  • Saving your smile from further damage
  • Reducing oral pain
  • Protecting your gum and jaws
  • Reducing risk of an oral infection
  • Treating issues after an oral injury or trauma

Urgent dental needs will vary for every patient. Dr. Nicosia handles different emergencies, including knocked-out teeth, chipped or broken teeth, minor jaw injuries, toothaches, swellings, abscesses, and soft tissue injuries. During your appointment, Dr. Nicosia will fully evaluate your specific issue before giving a diagnosis. 3D imaging could be done to look for hidden damage, for example, to the bone, tooth roots, or jaw. When we completely understand the extent of your oral issue, we will talk to you about your treatment needs. At Patrick V. Nicosia D.D.S., M.S., Inc., the primary concern of an emergency appointment is to reduce oral discomfort and detect any injuries. We do everything we can to rehabilitate the function, aesthetic, and total health of your teeth as quickly as we can.

Dr. Nicosia is "go-to" for anything That is unexplainable...he not only explains the issue..of course he remedies the issue! I have been his patient now since 2013 between teeth cleaning with Cindy the hygienist and the assistants of Dr. Nicosia. I see them treating all of their patients with respect and most importantly appreciation.
