    5 star review  Extremely friendly and understanding. I was in an unbearable amount of pain and they were very accepting to helping me in my time of need! I’m not in the best financial situation as well, and they made sure I got the work done I absolutely needed and were willing to work with me! I had no problem with scheduling my appointment that day with hardly any notice, finding the office (with hardly any wait once I got there,) them listening and examining to pin point the problem, getting the right pain meds, or getting back in touch after my visit. By far one of the best places to go to. The dental assistant needs a raise! She held my hand when I was in pain and talked me through everything as well as the Doctor himself. I got two molars and one wisdom out at the same time & my healing process has been one of the best by far for any dental work I’ve gotten done. Definitely recommend!!!

  • 5 star review  I woke up Sunday with extreme pain from my wisdom teeth and my gums! I was going to wait till Monday to go to a dentist because I was sure every dentist was going to be closed, but I was wrong. I was so happy when I saw that this office was open! I called to make an appointment and right away they got me in. Kierra the front desk receptionist was so sweet and helped me with all my questions, she was super friendly and outgoing! Overall, the whole staff made me feel welcome! One of the best dentist offices I’ve gone to! He took out my wisdom teeth, fillings, and did a cleaning all super quick and no pain whatsoever! Thank you for making me feel welcome!

    5 star review  I have had a few bad dental experiences and was extremely anxious to have to find a dentist in an urgent situation with a broken tooth on Friday evening. I was so relieved by the professionalism and efficiency of the staff. Throughout the entire visit, they were very reassuring, patient, and helpful. Dr Zaher is my new dentist now, no question! He did a fantastic job, everything went so smoothly and it actually seemed to go by quickly. He made the procedure as comfortable as possible and communicated with me the entire time. He has great personality that helped me relax a lot. His confidence, experience, knowledge, and thoughtfulness were very much appreciated. It was a busy Friday evening and when he was in the room with me he was focused on me and my procedure. If you need a new dentist, or need appointments later in the day (or Saturdays), go see him!

  • 5 star review  Great experience with Dr. Zaher and Andrea! My father had to have all of his remaining teeth extracted in preparation for a complete set of dentures, and Dr. Zaher was efficient and pain-free—even with a whole mouth of teeth to extract. Both he and Andrea make their patients feel comfortable and welcome during stressful procedures and are more than willing to answer any questions concerning your care. If you need a dentist in Longview, don’t hesitate to make an appointment with Dr. Zaher.

  • 5 star review  I love this Dentist Office from the time I walked in to the time I left I felt comfortable and at ease. I needed some teeth pulled they both were giving me pain. Dr Adam Zaher was very friendly he walked me through the steps and made me feel very comfortable about getting my teeth pulled I was so nervous but he encouraged and let me know I was gonna do just fine and I was especially relaxed when he turned the music on. He is a great dentist and is really down to earth. Andrea she is really really sweet. We had a great conversation and she explained to me the steps on how to take care of my mouth after the extraction. I literally called her everyday after I left to ask questions again to make sure I was doing everything right and she had so much patience with me even after waking her up out her sleep at home she was there to answer me. To the new girl sorry I don't remember your name but she was so sweet to. I know you were nervous but you did great just stay encouraged everything will get better for you. I highly recommend this Dentist office the staff are just like family when you have questions or just need them to take a look or something needs to be pulled they will do it. This is a very professional and clean place to go and you will love the staff. You all know I will be back of course. My Dentist Family 5 stars isn't enough I give you all a 10 Thanks again.

    5 star review  Thank you all for the warm, friendly, and welcoming atmosphere during my visit. I broke a molar, and the office was able to squeeze me in. Dr. Zaher is an amazing dentist, extremely patient, easy to talk to, takes the time to know his patients. He is passionate about his job, takes his time to explain things to you thoroughly in a way that you understand, readily and happily answers all questions, and is just so knowledgeable about his profession and it shows in his work. I couldn't be more pleased with my experience — very friendly staff. Thanks to the whole staff at Long View Family and Emergency Dental care from a grateful new patient.

  • 5 star review  I was looking for a dentist for a second opinion on a some dental issue I was having. I called Longview Family and Emergency Dental Care. Andrea was so empathetic and she told me that they believed in treating their patients like family. She set up an appointment for me right away. Dr. Adam tried to make me feel at home from the start. I didn't want to have a panoramic done because my insurance was not going to pay for that. He told me not to worry he wouldn't charge me but he needed it for his evaluation. He also took pictures of my teeth and took a lot of time explaining medically what the issues were. He was always kind and patient. I really appreciated that he regarded me as a collaborator in my dental care. He did some excellent work on my teeth that day. I would whole heartily recommend this practice to my friends and family with no hesitation.

    5 star review  I am terrified every time I step foot in a dentist office. I have gone to the same dentist for years. I had an emergency and needed to be seen. I called this office and they had me scheduled for the SAME day. I told Andrea how nervous I was and she calmed me over the phone. When I arrived I almost immediately went into the patient room. I told Dr. Zaher how my regular dentist does things and told him how scared I was to try someone new. He assured me I was in good hands. I trusted him. He did exactly how my normal dentist did and went above and beyond with my treatment and care! He made me feel as comfortable as possible and I felt no pain! His staff was friendly and checked on me regularly. I would highly recommend this facility! They made me feel like welcomed and comfortable with their exceptional hospitality!

Dental Emergencies

 

Dental emergencies can happen at any time. When it does, you should immediately contact your emergency dentist for proper treatment. It is important to remember that some dental emergencies have to be treated within 30 minutes or else you face the risk of losing your tooth.

 

What is a dental emergency?

If you have a dental problem that requires immediate treatment from a dentist so that your tooth could be saved, to stop tissue bleeding, or to alleviate severe pain, then you have a dental emergency. Today, you can receive immediate dental care from dentists that provide emergency services. However, not every dental problem is an emergency.

It is important to contact a 24 h dentist right away depending on the severity of your symptoms. Never wait until it is too late. You should visit an emergency dentist immediately and no later than the next day. When the emergency dentist has examined your condition, the appropriate treatment will be prescribed to you.

If you need emergency dental services, you can easily be accommodated by an emergency walk-in dentist. At Longview Family and Emergency dental Services, your dental emergency issues will be addressed. You can get adequate dental care whenever you need it. And what is great about emergency services is that you do not have to wait for regular business hours but you can just walk-in anytime you have an emergency. You can get your issues resolved when it occurs since they are even open weekends and holidays.

 

Common Dental Emergencies

 

Chipped, Cracked or Fractured Teeth

A chipped tooth that is not painful is not a dental emergency. You simply need to make a regular dental appointment for this problem. In order not to worsen the chip, make sure to be careful when you chew. Your regular dentist will be able to smoothen out the chip or else repair the tooth by adding some composite filling.

But if your tooth is cracked or fractured, then this is a dental emergency case. If your teeth are cracked or fractured, then it may be not only the outside that is damaged but also the inside of the tooth. If the fracture is severe, the tooth can no longer be saved. It is important to call your emergency dentist as soon as possible for an emergency appointment if your tooth is fractured.

Use warm water to rinse your mouth thoroughly. If the fracture is caused by trauma to the face, you can minimize swelling by applying a cold compress to the area. To alleviate pain, take acetaminophen according to package directions.

If the dentist is to properly diagnose your tooth, an x-ray needs to be taken. If the damage is done to the soft tissue inside your tooth, then a root canal is needed. If the pulp is not damaged, then you will only need a crown.

 

Knocked-out Tooth

If you fall off a bike or your mouth gets hit by an elbow playing basketball, you can experience trauma where your teeth are displaced or knocked out. Appropriate steps have to be taken after your tooth has been knocked-out so that it can still be reinstated and preserved by your emergency dentist.

Pick up your tooth by the crown without touching the roots. Clean the tooth by rinsing it gently. You can try putting your tooth back into the socket. Hold it gently in place while trying to bite down. Otherwise, get a small container to put your tooth in or put your tooth in a cup of milk.

If you want to save your knocked-out tooth, you need to call your dentist as soon as possible. But if you wait longer for your knocked-out tooth to be re-implanted in its socket, your chances of being able to have your tooth back is reduced.

 

 

Loose Tooth or Misaligned Tooth

Call your emergency dentist immediately if your tooth is loose or out of alignment. You can use your fingers to try pushing your tooth back into its proper position with light pressure. Bite down to stop the tooth from moving. To keep your tooth stabilized, your emergency dentist may splint the tooth to the adjacent one.

 

 

Oral Infection

Oral infection is another type of dental emergency. An infection can occur in the floor of your mouth, under your tongue and is accompanied by swelling around the jawline or under your mouth. This is also associated with breathing difficulty or swallowing. Immediate medical care is required for this situation since the infection from the oral cavity can travel to tissues around the heart.

Another type of infection that needs immediate care is tooth abscess. This can develop if cavities are not treated. This can cause severe toothache, facial swelling, and difficulty in breathing and swallowing. The first stage of a root canal can be performed by an emergency dentist but you can be referred to an endodontist so that the tooth can be opened and drained of the abscess.

Other oral infections give us severe pain that makes us lose sleep even after taking pain medications. This will also qualify as a dental emergency and you should see your emergency dentist immediately. However, these conditions are already advanced, and if these conditions were treated earlier, they could have not reached the point of becoming a medical emergency.

 

 

Injury to the Tissues and Facial Pain

 

Puncture wounds, lacerations of the mouth and cuts to the lips, tongue, mouth, and cheeks are considered an injury to the tissues and constitute a dental emergency. These injuries should be cleaned with warm water immediately. Visit your emergency dentist as quickly as possible.

To relieve the facial pain that goes with tissue injury, take acetaminophen as directed on the packaging label. Aspirin or ibuprofen should not be taken as they can cause excessive bleeding.

If you are not sure whether your condition constitutes a dental emergency or not, here are some things to consider. You might have a dental emergency if your mouth is bleeding, if you are in severe pain, if you have loose teeth, if you have been hit in the face or mouth, if you have swelling in the mouth or facial area, or if you have bulges and swelling in your gums. If any of these is true of you, then you might have a dental emergency. You should call on your emergency dentist immediately. Make sure to describe to your emergency dentist what has happened and what you are feeling.

 

 

Emergency Tooth Extraction

At Longview Family and Emergency Dental services, our emergency dentist will try to save your tooth. But sometimes it is not possible to save the tooth because of severe damage. Tooth extraction may be the only solution to this. We provide this service and other emergency dental services to those who need it.

 

 

When is a tooth extraction necessary?

Severe tooth decay. Dental plaque and tartar will build up on your tooth and if it remains untreated, it can cause tooth decay. If your tooth decay is not so severe, the emergency dentist can still save it. But if a cavity is so severe that it is not possible to repair it by filling, crown, or a root canal, then you will need an emergency tooth extraction.

Impacted wisdom tooth. When there is no room in the jaws for your wisdom tooth, the other teeth are pushed out of their way or they are left underneath the gums. You should call your emergency dentist if you feel pain in your wisdom tooth. Your wisdom tooth may be removed so as not to compromise your oral health. Impacted wisdom tooth the remains underneath the gum line can be determined with the use of x-rays.

Fractured tooth beneath the gum line. When chewing food, your teeth take up a lot of impact. Chewing could crack your molars if there is no perfect fit for your teeth when you bite down. If you just had a tooth filling or a root canal, you risk cracking your teeth. Your tooth needs to be extracted if there is a fracture beneath the gumline.

Periodontal disease. When your gum disease has progressed to periodontal disease, it is no longer reversible. Your gums and other supporting structures are attacked when you have this disease. Your gums will then recede and your teeth will have less support. Thus, there is a need for extraction or else your teeth will more likely fall out. Although periodontal disease can no longer be cured, your dentist can slow down its progression through some other dental procedures.

 

If there is a risk of infection in one of your teeth, it may have to be removed so that the teeth around it will not have to suffer risk as well.

The procedure for a tooth extraction will depend on the location of the tooth and the severity of the damage but if your tooth needs to be extracted, the following general procedure is followed.

Local anesthesia will be injected into the area around your mouth. This will make your mouth numb after a few minutes. Then the dentist will widen the tooth socket, rock your tooth from side to side until it is loose enough to pull out. During the procedure, you may feel a slight degree of pressure but it is not so painful at all. Make sure to tell your dentist if the procedure is causing you much pain.

Whether you need a tooth extraction or not, only a qualified dentist can tell you. At Longview Family and Emergency dental services, we give you the right treatment that you need. You can simply walk-in our clinic and we will provide you with immediate dental care. You don't need to wait for regular business hours. you can come at any time and we are even open weekends and holidays.
