Grand Parkway Smiles is here when you need us with reliable emergency dental services in Richmond, TX.
Tooth aches and dental accidents don’t follow a schedule, unfortunately, and often strike at the most inconvenient times. Rarely, if ever, does a tooth break or become excruciatingly painful just in time for your regularly scheduled dental check-up!
That’s why we offer same-day dental appointments.
WHAT ARE EMERGENCY DENTAL SERVICES?
Grand Parkway Smiles emergency dental services come into play when an unexpected accident, injury, or tooth pain occurs. Severe tooth pain, bleeding that won’t stop, and broken bones all constitute emergencies. In some cases, it is best to head straight for the emergency room. Other times we will ask you to come in for a dentist appointment right away.
Because accidents and tooth pain vary in severity and timing, and treatment options vary accordingly, the course of action for patients calling for emergency dental services will differ in each case.

WHAT HAPPENS AFTER EMERGENCY DENTAL SERVICES?
Emergency dental procedures always require a follow-up visit to the dentist as soon as possible to evaluate appropriate healing, continued pain relief if needed, and a treatment plan for the nearby future.
If you went straight to the emergency room, or were referred there by your emergency dentist, it is still important to follow up with your dentist right away. Emergency rooms typically address only acute dental symptoms and further treatment may be needed to resolve underlying problems.
