Don’t Let a Toothache Ruin Halloween | Houston, TX

Do you have exciting plans for Halloween? Will you be attending a costume party? Or maybe trick or treating around town with your children? Perhaps you just want to catch a scary movie at the local cinema. You could even venture to one of the Lone Star state’s great amusement parks – they’re all decorated to the hilt for the holiday.

Whatever your plans entail, Halloween is a fun-time filled with friends and family. But nothing can ruin your plans faster than a toothache or other dental pain. At the Antoine Dental Center in Houston, TX, we offer same-day emergency appointments. We can get you back to your Halloween plans in no time, free of a toothache or other discomfort.

Toothaches and other dental pains happen to everybody, they also tend to strike without warning. Your aches and pains could have been caused by an accident, a sports injury, or even an infection. Whatever the problem may be, we can treat it and prevent it from getting any worse. Don’t delay dental work, most problems will only get more painful the longer you wait.

We offer treatment for many emergency dental situations. If you’ve broken a tooth or even had it knocked-out of your mouth, we can help. If you’re having a toothache that just won’t go away, we can help. If your gums are swollen or bleeding, we can help. Many dental emergencies are caused by underlying dental problems, and we can treat those as well.

At Antoine Dental Center in Houston, TX, we offer late hours and Saturday appointments. That means that we can almost always provide you with a same-day emergency appointment. If you’re worried about the cost of an appointment, you may be relieved to know that we offer payment plans, no-interest financing, and an in-house dental plan.

If you are experiencing dental pain or are afraid to visit the dentist, you may be interested in sedation dentistry. Sedation dentistry is designed to help you relax and relieve any anxiety you are feeling before your appointment. We offer three different types of sedation dentistry to fit your needs and desires.

Our most popular option is nitrous oxide sedation. You may have heard this service referred to as laughing gas. We attach a small mask to your face and deliver a stream of a oxygen and nitrous oxide. The safe and clean gas mixture allows you to relax and feels almost like a happy drunk. Nitrous oxide also wears off quickly, so you can drive yourself home from your appointment.

We also offer oral sedation. We prescribe a mild sedative for you to take before your appointment, then you just sit-back in the chair and relax. Oral sedation is great for people who prefer a stronger sedative than that offered by nitrous oxide.

For longer or more complicated procedures, we are also one of the few offices in the area to offer IV sedation. IV sedation is the strongest form of sedation dentistry available. You will likely not remember your procedure if you choose IV sedation. You will also need someone to drive you home after an appointment, because the sedation may take a bit to wear-off.

If you’re having a dental emergency, we encourage you to call our office at 713-364-8890. You may also want to save that number in your cellphone, because you never know when a dental emergency may strike. At the Antoine Dental Center in Houston, TX, we proud to offer existing patients and new patients same-day emergency appointments. Call us today and feel better tomorrow.
