  • Tooth knocked out
  • Broken tooth

If you’re having a dental emergency that’s not on this list, no worries. Zam Dental covers all dental emergencies, with the sole exception of life-threatening emergencies. If your life’s in danger, proceed to the nearest emergency room right away.

What can I expect when I get emergency dental treatment?

The Zam Dental team starts with a full assessment of your mouth damage. This includes a description of your pain or problem, a review of your medical history, and advanced imaging as needed. 

The compassionate and highly skilled Zam Dental team starts treatment right away. Depending on the damage, you may need anesthesia to numb the treatment area. The Zam Dental team’s main goal is to have you pain-free when you leave the office. 

When is emergency dental care available?

Zam Dental offers emergency dental care during all normal office hours, Monday through Saturday. If you’re having a dental emergency, call the San Antonio office closest to you, and a member of the Zam Dental team will arrange your visit promptly. 

Although emergency walk-ins are welcome, it’s helpful to call ahead so the team can get ready for your visit and begin care as soon as you arrive. Zam Dental makes emergency dental patients a priority, and they always make room in the schedule for those unexpected situations that require immediate attention. 

How do I prepare for my emergency dental appointment?

By nature, emergencies allow little-to-no prep time, but there are a few things you can do if you’re able. If you’re in pain, you can apply an ice packet to the outside of your jaw. If your tooth is knocked out, retrieve it and put it in a cup of cow’s milk to preserve it until you reach Zam Dental. 

When any member of the family has a dental emergency, especially young kids, try to keep them distracted with a toy, game, or movie on your phone or tablet. 

If you have a dental emergency, take a deep breath and remind yourself that Zam Dental has you covered. Reach out for the best in San Antonio emergency dental care now.
