  • 5 star review  I can not thank Longview Family and Emergency Dental Care enough, they were so kind and caring regarding my tooth pain, Dr Zahar helped me with the pain so that I could concentrate on what the best decision would be regarding my tooth. I really appreciate that he realized you can not focus when your in that much pain. I had been dealing with a severely painful tooth for days and another dentist office scheduled me for 5 days out, this office told my husband "bring her now" I am just so grateful! I highly recommend this dentist office.

    5 star review  I had to go in on Sunday very last minute for a tooth extraction and I was terrified but Dr. Adam and Alma were excellent and kept me calm and were very reassuring! Dr. Adam is very funny and he kept me laughing as much as possible and it really helped me to feel more comfortable!

    5 star review  This was the most amazing place and people!! My husband was in extreme pain from a wisdom tooth. They got us in on a Saturday at 7:00 pm and took great care of everything. Plus they x-rayed my son, cleaned his teeth, filled multiple teeth, added sealants to a few. All for a great price. We will be back in 2 weeks for more work. The dentist, assistant and office staff are all amazing! We found our dental home!

  • 5 star review  When I went in it was LATE on a Saturday day night and I was in excruciating pain. The staff was so warm and friendly and made me comfortable. The dentist even turned the air down because I said I was cold. I ended up having to have 3 teeth extracted and they took their time and moved with such care. This is by far one of the BEST experiences I have ever had with a dentist especially with the circumstances in which they saw me. They now have a new regular client in me. I will refer anyone with ears. Plus they are open weekends. AMAZING!!!!

    5 star review  Went in for a emergency wisdom tooth extraction last night and had a wonderful experience! Dr Adam made sure to lay out all my options for me treatment wise and let me go with my decision with confidence. He did the whole procedure on his own and my husband and I were more than impressed.

    5 star review  I came in on a Saturday in a ridiculous amount of pain after searching far and wide for an open dentist office. The receptionist/assistant was an extremely kind, funny, sweet girl who instantly made me feel at ease. She’s prompt, knowledgeable, and super easy to talk to! The dentist was just as wonderful! He understood that I was a little nervous and did his absolute best (and succeeded) to talk me through everything. He answered all of my dumb questions very attentively and with a smile. I’ve finally found a dentist that I actually like! The office is an hour drive away from where I live, but the quality care and kindness more than makes up for the long drive! Thank you so much, Dr. Adam! I’m forever grateful to you for being open on a Saturday!

  • 5 star review  I am 12 years old and i got my teeth pulled and it was very quick and painless! I was in so much pain I couldn’t stand it thank you Dr.Adam for taking care of me! This is his mother Tuesday of last week I woke up with my mouth swollen and In so much I couldn’t stand it! I called around and found Dr.Adams office I called at 5 and they told me to come on in. I arrived at around 6pm at they got me right in and took care of the extraction that needed to be done. Him and his whole staff are so welcoming and really have a way of making you feel comfortable! I highly recommend him to anyone. Fast forward to yesterday my 12 year old had a broken tooth that many other dentists offices in Tyler Texas wouldn’t pull. He woke up Thursday with his jaw swollen and he couldn’t eat and hadn’t slept so I immediately called Dr. Adams office he told me to bring him and I did and man was that a diaster my son wasn’t having it! He didn’t was terrified and just refused to let Dr.Adam do the work. Him and his entire tried their best to try and comfort him but he just wasn’t doing it. Then today he couldn’t take the pain anymore and decided to get them pulled and without hesitation Dr.Adams said to bring him in. And we did and he did an amazing job my son said it was quick and painless and that it wasn’t that bad. If your having a dental emergency definitely go see him!

    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!

    5 star review  So, I'm a single mother who works business hours and it's nearly impossible for me to get an appointment anywhere for my daughter without taking off work. I finally found this office and they are open SUCH unexpected and convenient hours. I was able to get an appointment for my daughter and not miss work. They were kind and helpful with my daughter, who is not a fan of doctors in general. She left skipping out of the office and that NEVER happens. These people are great! These people have my business in the future, that's for sure.

  • 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 normally do not post reviews but Longview Family and Emergency Dental care deserves recognition for honesty and integrity. I went there for a 2nd opinion and ended up paying much- much less. I was misdiagnosed at the previous dentist. This is really one of the best dental experience I have ever had. Everyone was so nice, the place is very clean and I was very comfortable in a dentist office for the first time in a long time. Highly recommend!!

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.
