Any type of dental emergency requires prompt attention to save your oral health from further damage and restore comfort to your smile. At Made Ya Smile Dental, our team of caring dentists has over 30 years of experience in treating all types of dental emergencies, including broken teeth or fillings, loose bridges or crowns, soft tissue injuries, and knocked-out teeth (avulsion). We understand that dental emergencies can cause a great deal of stress and leave time in our daily schedule to accommodate unexpected treatment needs when they arise. If you or a family member has a dental emergency, we strive to see you as soon as possible, typically on the same day.
Whether your dental emergency happens unexpectedly or is the result of a sports injury or accident, our team is here when you need us. We place dental emergencies as a top priority and are highly skilled at providing the efficient, timely care you need to restore your oral health. Even if your emergency occurs after-hours or over the weekend, a member of our team can provide instructions on how to care for your condition until we can meet you at our office for treatment. Please do not wait to seek care as some emergencies, like knocked-out teeth, require urgent dental care and timely treatment. Contact our Sugar Land, TX family practice right away if a dental emergency has impacted you or a member of your family, and we will get you in to see Dr. Joe Prasifka or Dr. Trey Nguyen as soon as we can.

"I drove to Sugar Land from San Antonio for a gingevectomy. I was super nervous, but the assistant and Dr. Chakaki made sure that I felt safe. Dr. Chakaki has changed my smile and I’m so grateful that I was able to get my procedure done with her. It was painless and I was super picky, but she exceeded my expectations and I am very pleased with the results."- M.T. / Yelp / Aug 05, 2020
"Made ya smile dental changed my life. I was bumped by some guys and 3 of my front teeth were knocked out. I was embarrassed and my self esteem was very low. I didn't like to go into public, or meet new people. This effected all aspects of my personal and professional life. I couldn't afford to get them fixed. I called in to The Michael Berry radio show on AM 740 and told him my story. Michael was super nice and told me he was going to talk to his dentist, Dr. Kesner and see if he could help me. The doctor contacted me and I went to Sugarland to see him. He did a lot of work while being really, really nice. The entire staff treated me like family. Now I have a beautiful smile thanks to Michael Berry, Dr. Kesner, and the staff at Made Ya Smile. The thing is, they didn't help me for recognition, publicity, or anything else. They saw someone in need and helped because they could and it was the right thing to do. Not only is Dr. K a great dentist, he's a great person as well. I very strongly recommend Made Ya Smile for more reasons than I care to type. I also would like to thank Mr. Michael Berry, Dr. Kesner, and all of the great staff at Made Ya Smile in Sugar land. All of you are great people and you have truly improved my life. Thank you, and God bless you all!"- D.T. / Facebook / Jul 29, 2020

Dental emergencies can happen at any time and to anyone. We know that dental emergencies often occur on the weekend or outside of business hours and are here to help. If you experience a dental emergency, please contact our Sugar Land, TX team immediately so we can assess your condition and let you know how to care for your mouth until you can get in to see us. Any injury, trauma, or damage that occurs to your teeth, gums, or jaw should be evaluated by one of our general dentists as soon as possible. Keep in mind, not all dental emergencies result in discomfort or painful symptoms, but it is still important for us to take a look so that we can minimize damage to your mouth. Dr. Prasifka and Dr. Nguyen treat all types of dental emergencies. Some of the most common types we see include knocked-out or partially knocked-out (extruded) teeth, broken or cracked fillings or teeth, tooth abscesses or infections, injury to the soft tissues or lips, dislodged or loose bridges or crowns, unexplained bleeding, and toothaches or pain that do not resolve. During your emergency, we will work to get you out of pain first and then provide personalized palliative or restorative care to treat your needs.
What To Expect
At Made Ya Smile Dental, we focus on providing comfort and high-quality care during your dental emergency and will work to minimize your stress and discomfort as quickly as possible. Our team will get you in as soon as possible to see one of our dentists and address your emergency needs. Since each dental emergency varies from the next, we personalize your care and recommend treatments best suited to get you back to health and on with enjoying your smile. We may need to take 3D cone beam scans or digital x-rays of your teeth and jaw to comprehensively understand and treat your dental emergency.
Before providing any type of care, we will present our findings and review your options for treatment with you. In some cases, we may go ahead and provide treatment at the time or take a palliative approach to care and bring you back in once it is appropriate for your health (such as in the case of swelling or infection). Please go to the emergency room right away if you have extreme bleeding or suffer facial, head, or neck trauma. When you heal and your situation is stabilized, we can then address any oral health or cosmetic needs that result from the injury.
Once Dr. Prasifka or Dr. Nguyen have provided emergency dental care and assess your situation, we will provide instructions on how to care for your injury and schedule any follow-up treatment. Antibiotic or pain medication may be prescribed to control infection if needed. Our team may also recommend cold compresses or ice packs to help reduce any swelling in the face or jaw. You may also want to stick to a soft food diet until your discomfort subsides and your oral health is stabilized.
Our team may also make suggestions on how to minimize your risk for dental emergencies in the future. Wearing custom-fit athletic mouth guards during sports can greatly reduce the risk of oral injury during physical activity. Avoiding parafunctional habits, like nail-biting, ice chewing, and biting on hard objects, is recommended to lessen the risk of teeth and restorations from chipping or breaking. Following your emergency care, it is also important to ensure you adhere to proper brushing and flossing and scheduling routine biannual cleaning and exam visits with our team to support a healthy, comfortable smile.
Some dental emergency procedures may be covered by dental insurance. A member of our business team will check your plan specifics and let you know of any personal costs. We know that dental emergencies are unexpected and will work with you to find treatment and payment solutions that fit within your budget. To help make emergency care more affordable, Made Ya Smile Dental accepts several easy payment options, including flexible low- or no-interest financing solutions.
