Emergency Dentistry

When you have a painful tooth or your child damages a tooth playing their favorite sport, you need immediate dental care. At Lufkin Family Dental, we never want our patients to be in pain or wait for days to receive the dental care they need. We offer emergency dental care for existing and new patients – we may be able to see you the same day to remedy your urgent dental need.

Dental emergencies come in many forms, from trauma or accidents to an ongoing tooth issue that has suddenly become very painful. Cracked or broken teeth are one of the most common emergencies, stemming from sports, auto accidents and other types of trauma. Regardless of the problem, when you have a painful or exposed tooth, you want immediate care.

You may be tempted to head to the ER or an urgent medical care facility when you have an urgent dental issue. Unfortunately, most emergency rooms are not equipped to handle a dental problem and you may spend hours waiting without getting the care you need. Instead, call our office first. We can usually see emergency patients the same day and we have the facilities to treat most dental issues.

Urgent Dental Care

Our scheduling team at Lufkin Family Dental leaves room in our day to handle an urgent dental need when it arises. We know that when our patients are in pain or a tooth is in jeopardy, they need a place to go that can fix the problem the same day. Dr. Allen and our team will help you relax and feel comfortable while we address your dental emergency as quickly as possible.

When you crack a tooth, or wake up with a severe toothache, come see us at Lufkin Family Dental. We are your source in the Lufkin area for emergency dental care. Most dental insurance plans are accepted, and we have payment options available for your urgent dental care expenses. Contact our office right away if you have a dental emergency.
