We're here to save your teeth!
We’ll do everything we can to save each and every tooth we see, including surgery to repair gums, root canals, crowns and more.
There are many reasons why a tooth may need to be removed including trauma, severe decay or infection, and crowding (a lack of space in your mouth for all of your teeth). Wisdom teeth removal is also a leading reason for extractions, especially for teens and young adults.
LOVE this place! The entire staff was amazing, and made me feel right at home. I went expecting to lose a tooth,but Dr. Adam saved it, and fixed a longtime problem, all in the same visit. I have a horrible fear of the dentist, he made me so comfortable, that I am looking forward to going back. Our entire family will be using this place. AMAZING PLACE AND PEOPLE!!! I cannot say enough good things about everyone here! And thank goodness, everyone there has a great sense of humor! Prices are very reasonable too!
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!
Had to go in on a Sunday. Very friendly staff. The best dentist ever 😁. I am so happy with the experience, I would recommend him to everyone. A very nice guy.
This clinic is amazing! When I called to schedule new patient appointments for my family and myself, they were extremely helpful, patient and accommodating. My kids have always been scared of dentists but this office is very kid friendly. The dentist explained everything in a way that we could understand. I would recommend longview family and emergency dental care to everyone!
Everyone took great care of me, the office was clean, and they were all very supportive especially since i was nervous about getting my wisdom tooth removed. Overall great experience!
I cant say enough about how great Dr. Adam and his staff/clinic are. Angels among us for sure!! I broke a tooth while eating breakfast this past Sunday. I knew ER wasnt going to be able to help me due to the injury being dental, so I looked and found Dr. Adam. I called and was scheduled for a same day appointment within an hour of me calling. From the moment I walked in, I was treated like family. Dr. Adam was awesome at explaining my case and making sure I understood what needed to be done. The staff do a great job of making sure you understand your cost before starting what you need. Dr. Adam went above and beyond to help me with EVERYTHING I needed, got my issue fixed and had me on my way in no time. He truly cares about his community and giving back in the best way he knows how. I told him I thought he was an angel for being there to help me on a Sunday. I got my emergency handled and found a new dentist all in the same visit. I'm beyond thankful for what he did for me and HIGHLY RECOMMEND him and his clinic to anyone needing a fantastic, caring, get-it-done when you need it, dentist. You wont be disappointed!! Thanks again Dr. Adam! see you again soon!
I came in as a new patient and it was way more than Id expected. The office was a welcoming environment. The staff were very friendly and make you comfortable in everything they do. Dr. Zaher is amazing. He always does a great job explaining the process before starting. I finally found a great place to go for my dental work. Highly recommended to anyone looking for a great place who provides so many dental services. You wont regret it!!
I don't like the dentist at all but with the help of Andrea everything went smother and fast dentist was amazing thank you all for such a good experience...I will be back for sure!!
Just in awe! The staff is absolutely outstanding caring loving! And the assistant... wish I could remember her name! She was incredible!! Went in being terrified and they made it a point to make me feel good physically and emotionally! I am so thankful to have found this place! 4 teeth extracted 2 wisdom teeth and 2 molars and he did an amazing job! Thank you Dr. Adam! 🤎
I hate going to the dentist but this was the best experience I have had by far. The front desk staff was pleasant. Kiera assisted on the whole way through and was great to work with along with the other staff. Dr. Adam was professional, funny and made the whole process comfortable. I had an extraction and he was done before I could even think about it lol. 10/10 would recommend. This will be my dentist going forward!
I had a crown come out unexpectedly, and after regular business hours. They were able to see me immediately, and provided excellent and friendly care. I received very clear after care instructions, and I really appreciated that they took the time to explain everything and answer questions. I will definitely be back!
Very nice business . Everyone is professional and very nice. My procedure went well . And the Dentist and staff are very knowledgeable and helpful . I would definitely recommend the for all your dental needs. Thank Longview Family Dentist .
Awesome treatment, helped when I was in pain. Even on a weekend.
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!
I got my wisdom tooth pulled 2 weeks ago, anyone that has ever known me knows I’m absolutely afraid of dentist always have been. I came in scared for my life, but Dr. Adam and both of his helpers talked me through every step on how it was going to feel during and after the procedure, I can honestly say that this has got to be 1 of the scariest but the most calming and easiest visits I’ve ever had in a dentist office. “My favorite Dentist” 🤗
Dr Adam and his staff are so pleasant and kind! I would give them ten stars if I could. I had absolutely no pain or anxiety during my procedure. I was constantly asked how I was doing and I was well taken care of. Best dentist ever!
Alma and Dr. Adam are awesome! Super nice and did great work. Both were very comforting and professional. I will be coming back.
Amazing dentist! Very attentive, and professional. Fixed a very deep cavity, and my tooth no longer hurts. I highly recommend.
Dr. Adam is by far the BEST dentist!! I was so nervous to get an extraction but he was super patient and explained everything so well!! I definitely will be coming back and I’ve even referred my entire family because he’s so good!
I was in excruciating pain for about 3-4 days. I called at 8PM on a sunday night (they close at 9) to just get a quote for a tooth extraction. They told me to come right in and stayed late just to help me out! They made me feel welcome and comfortable. They laid out all my options and even worked with me on pricing to help me get relief. They even let me keep my tooth. 😍 LOVE THIS PLACE!!! Would recommend them to everyone i know.
I found myself visiting family, far from home, and in terrible pain from a stubborn toothache. I was able to be seen on a Saturday late afternoon and had a wonderful experience... even with needing a root canal and a crown. Dr was extremely helpful, gentle, and ensured a pain free service. I’m grateful for the speedy relief and excellent customer service. Highly recommend.
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.
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.
Super amazing!! Went at 8pm for severe pain in one of my upper right molars. They gave me the options, explained each one, and I had a quick and painless extraction. Definitely would recommend them to anyone. The dentist is nice and friendly and the staff were all really sweet as well 🙂
Dr. Adam is extremely accurate, definitely a professional. The best dental care I have ever experienced. I would recommend this dentistry to anyone.So grateful I found this dentist and in a great location. I’d highly recommend bringing your whole family.
I had a toothache in a tooth that was part of a bridge. As the day went on Saturday the pain got worse. I called the emergency office and spoke to Anna. She said come right in. After X-ray , Dr Adam showed me the infection and the root canal that was not good. He discussed everything he was going to do. He knew I was stressed so he gave me several breaks to get myself a rest. It was a removal that was ,to me, a little tricky. Dr Adam did a great job. I will go back again to implants. I have confidence that all will go fine. The experience was a good one. Anna caked to check on me today. That shows that they care about their patients. Thank you both for making me feel at ease!!!
Greeted energetically by receptionist as you walk in. Dr. Zaher and staff explain everything in a way that's easy to understand. All procedures are discussed with multiple options so you can decide what you are comfortable with having done. Will definitely be going back for any work I need done.
I highly recommend Dr. Adam Zaher and his staff. They saw me on short notice on a Saturday night. I was very nervous about having my tooth pulled, however they went above and beyond to make me comfortable. The office is nice and extremely clean. And to top it off Andrea periodically checks up on me to make sure I am healing properly. This is definitely my new family dentist 😁😁😁
WOW. What a great experience, a refreshing scene at Long View Family and Emergency Dental Care. Kindness and professionalism from Dr. Zaher and his staff from the time you walk in until the time you leave. When the financial peer come, I was amazed considering the price with the great service that was provided. I will definitely be back for any and all dental procedures. Did I mention they gave me a same day appointment? Thank you so much Dr. Zaher and staff at Longview Emergency and Dental care!!
Usually, I’m quite anxious and stressed about even calling the dentist, but this place is amazing! I felt absolutely no pain and the procedures that I had were extremely quick. They explain everything in detail about your personalized dental plan and costs. The staff is personable and friendly and the Dr. puts your care and comfort first, plus he has a cool sense of humor. I am happy that I was referred to Longview Family and Emergency Dental!
Most of us want to have a perfect set of teeth. And this is the reason why we try to be consistent in keeping our dental appointments. However, some of us might not be able to achieve this because of particular situations or conditions that our teeth might be facing. And this is the reason why we sometimes need emergency dental services. One of the services offered by emergency dental services is tooth extraction.
What is tooth extraction?
Tooth extraction is a procedure performed by a dentist or an oral surgeon where a tooth or teeth are removed using special dental tools and equipment. This procedure usually requires either local or general anesthesia. Before the procedure is performed, the dentist evaluates the condition of the patient’s teeth.
Why do we need an emergency tooth extraction?
There are many situations where an emergency tooth extraction is necessary. Let us find out below.
1. Emergency tooth extraction is necessary when the tooth or teeth suffer severe damage due to trauma.
One of the common reasons why teeth trauma is experienced is when one gets involved in an accident. Most of these injuries happen during sports activities. A sports injury to the mouth can leave your teeth cracked and hurts your gums. Although some of these injuries can still be treated, there are severe cases when the only option is for extraction.
Your dentist or oral surgeon will first take an x-ray of the affected portion of your mouth. This will help determine if the dentist can still save your teeth through restorative procedures or not. If the damage is severe, then the best option is to have an emergency tooth extraction. A tooth extraction will help stop further pain and damage.
2. Emergency tooth extraction is sometimes necessary for cosmetic procedures.
Sometimes, cosmetic procedures such as teeth straightening would require that some teeth be extracted from your mouth. This would enable your teeth to straighten up properly if there is enough room in your mouth. This is especially true if your teeth are too crowded in your mouth. Teeth removal can ensure the proper alignment of teeth. Although this is not usually the case there are situations when teeth removal becomes necessary to complete a cosmetic procedure.
3. Emergency tooth extraction is necessary when there is damage to the teeth due to infection.
When your teeth experience severe decay, it may extend to the core of your teeth which is connected to the nerves and blood vessels. You experience great pain when the nerves are exposed and it gets hit by food particles. This condition may be beyond restoration and the only way out is by emergency tooth extraction. If this is left untreated, then the integrity and health of the root will be beyond repair. An extraction is the most logical option when this is the case.
After an extraction, the patient will have the option to choose to have dental implants to replace the missing tooth or teeth.
4. Emergency tooth extraction is necessary when there is gum disease present.
If the gum disease is still in its early stages, it can still be reversed. However, it can progress into a more severe condition that attacks not only the gums but other structures of the teeth as well. The gums will then recede and this weakens its support of your teeth. Your teeth can fall out or it needs an emergency tooth extraction. Although severe gum disease cannot be cured, there are procedures known to the dentist that can help slow down its progression.
5. Emergency tooth extraction is necessary when there is a dental abscess.
When there is an infection in your teeth, you will find swelling and your tooth is filled with pus. This is tooth abscess. You will find it inside your tooth and you can feel great pain. Sometimes, you will not know that you have tooth abscess until you feel the pain. If left untreated, the tooth will become more infected since the abscess doesn’t heal on its own. It is then necessary to have an emergency dental extraction in this case.
6. Emergency tooth extraction is necessary when your tooth is fractured under your gums.
Usually, when you chew your food, your tooth absorbs a lot of impacts. Your tooth can become fractured especially if your teeth are not perfectly fit together. If the fracture is beneath the gum line, then it needs dental extraction as soon as possible.
7. Emergency tooth extraction is necessary if you have an impacted wisdom tooth.
During your late teens or early twenties, your wisdom teeth appear. Normally, your wisdom teeth will occupy the most interior portion of your jaws. However, it can happen that the wisdom tooth will not have space in your jaws. One of two things can happen. First, the wisdom tooth can push the other teeth out of its way. Otherwise, it gets stuck underneath the gums.
The second scenario leads to a painful situation. When this happens, you should call your emergency dentist immediately. Your emergency dentist may perform a wisdom tooth removal. If x-rays will show that your wisdom tooth is impacted beneath your gum line, then it needs to be removed.
It is necessary to extract impacted wisdom teeth. Otherwise, you will experience pain. Other problems that can happen with an impacted wisdom tooth include trapping food behind the wisdom tooth, gum disease or infection, tooth decay in a partially erupted wisdom tooth, and more.
However, even if your wisdom tooth is not impacted, some dentists and oral surgeons recommend that it be extracted so future problems can be prevented. It can prevent decay as a result of not being able to clean it properly because it is hard to get to it. And you will never know what diseases or complications can happen to your wisdom teeth when you get older.
How is tooth extraction performed?
Only dentists and oral surgeons can perform tooth extractions. Once you are ready for the procedure, an injection of local anesthesia will be administered so that the area where the tooth will be removed will get numb. Sometimes, general anesthesia is administered to a patient. This will help prevent you from feeling pain throughout your body. This way you can simply sleep throughout the procedure.
If the tooth extraction is for an impacted wisdom tooth, a small cut or incision will be made into the gum to be able to access the tooth. The dentist might also need to remove a small piece of bone that is covering the tooth.
To make it easier for the dentist to remove the tooth through the small opening, the tooth may be cut into smaller parts. However, if the tooth has fully erupted through the gums, then the incision is no longer necessary.
- Your dentist will then rock the tooth back and forth so that the tooth socket can be widened before taking it out. This procedure can make you feel some pressure just before the tooth is removed.
- Because of the anesthesia, you shouldn’t feel any pain while your wisdom tooth is being removed. If you feel any pain, don’t hesitate to inform your dentist or oral surgeon about it so that more anesthesia can be administered.
- The time it takes to remove your wisdom tooth will vary depending on the condition or the placement of the tooth. Normally, it only takes a few minutes, but if there are complications then it can take a longer time.
- When the surgery is done, your gums will be stitched back using dissolving stitches. This is only if an incision was made to pull the tooth out. These stitches usually dissolve within 7 to 10 days.
- Gauze will be placed where the extraction took place and your dentist will ask you to bite your jaws together so that pressure is applied to the spot. This will help your blood to clot in the empty tooth socket. Blood clots can help the wound to heal faster. If there is an infection, then you will be prescribed antibiotics by your dentist.
- After the dental procedure, there are some instructions that your dentist may give you.
- When blood oozes from the wound after the wisdom tooth removal, you need to replace the gauze over the extraction site. Refrain from spitting excessively so that the blood clot is not dislodged from the tooth socket.
- Your dentist can recommend pain killers to manage the pain you may feel after the procedure. You feel pain especially if a bone has been removed during the procedure. If you don’t want to take pain medications, then you can simply hold an ice pack against your jaw.
- If there is swelling and bruising of your cheeks, you can also use an ice pack and the condition will improve in a few days.
- You can do some normal activities the day after the extraction. However, you should limit your movement and avoid strenuous activities. This can make you lose the blood clot from the socket.
- After the surgery, drink lots of water but refrain from drinking alcohol, coffee, soda, or hot beverages. This is good in the first 24 hours. Also, refrain from drinking from a straw for at least a week so that the blood clot from the spot will not be dislodged.
After surgery, refrain from brushing your teeth. Simply use a mouthwash to rinse your teeth. After 24 hours, you can resume brushing your teeth normally. Be gentle near the part where the tooth had been extracted.
Oral health is very important. To protect it, emergency tooth extraction can be the last resort.
