Meet Dr. Justin Lai (DDS)

Emergency Dentist West Houston

Meet Dr. Justin Lai (DDS)

Dr. Justin Lai is one of the leading emergency dentists in Houston, TX, currently serving the communities in the Memorial Area and Energy Corridor. He has a stellar educational background. He attended the J Frank Dobie High School, following which he studied Chemical Engineering at Rice University, and he eventually acquired his Doctor of Dental Surgery degree from the University of Texas Health Science Center at San Antonio Dental School.

Dr. Lai believes his superpower is his attention to detail, one of the most important and underrated soft skills in dentistry. He uses cutting-edge technologies and his attention to detail to scope out the smallest of traces of dental anomalies and problems before they escalate. His goal is to make sure you never encounter an actual dental emergency or problem because he treats all dental concerns before they can escalate.

However, if you do experience a dental emergency, you can trust that Dr. Lai will resolve the problem using the least invasive techniques possible. He only performs emergency dental extractions if no other options are available. Dr. Lai also stays abreast of the latest developments in dentistry by attending annual conferences and workshops. This ensures that you receive the latest dental treatments at all times.

Dr. Lai is an Eagle Scout, and he’s a proud member of some of the country’s leading dental associations, including the American Dental Association, TDA, GHDS, and IALD. Besides dentistry, Dr. Lai is a golfing enthusiast and spends most of his free time on the golf course.

Holistic Dental Care

Edge Dental Emergency believes in holistic dental care. We understand that your dental health can’t be viewed in isolation. It’s a part of your overall health. Your general health and dental health impact each other. For example, periodontitis can increase your risk of diabetes and vice versa. That’s why we take a proactive rather than reactive approach to dentistry. Dr. Lai leverages cutting-edge technologies, such as intra-oral scanners and 3D x-rays to identify dental problems and anomalies at the earliest stages possible, thereby helping you prevent dental emergencies.

We encourage you to schedule same-day appointments and avail of same-day treatments, provided we have the availability.

Cutting-Edge Technologies

Dental treatments and technologies advance and change at a rapid pace. Dental treatments and techniques that may have been commonplace a few years ago can soon become obsolete. That’s why we stay ahead of the curve and use the latest cutting-edge technologies. This allows us to provide the safest and most advanced treatments with the least risk of complications. Below, we highlight the benefits of some of our most advanced technologies.

3D digital x-rays provide a comprehensive image of your teeth and dental anatomy from all angles. Furthermore, we don’t need multiple exposures to capture different angles, and the images can be easily duplicated. As such, 3D x-rays are safer and more effective at diagnosis than traditional x-rays.

LANAP is a cutting-edge laser device used for the treatment of gingivitis and periodontitis. The dentist adjusts the wavelength of the device to channel highly-calibrated light energies into the infected and damaged tissues. The laser energy destroys and removes the infected tissues without affecting the healthy tissues, liberating you from gum disease.

Intra-oral cameras are small, pen-like devices with a camera attached at the end. It’s driven into your mouth and oral cavity to produce a comprehensive image of the inside of your mouth. The emergency dentist can use this to identify the smallest and earliest signs of dental decay, infections, and problems before they escalate.

Prime Scan is an advanced technology that allows the dentist to take impressions of your teeth without dental mold, which can be quite unpleasant. The dentist simply moves the pen-like device around your mouth to capture the impressions, which can be sent to the laboratory to prepare dental crowns and implants.

CAD/ CAM (computer-assisted design/computer-aided manufacturing) technology is one of the latest breakthroughs in dentistry. This technology allows dentists to take accurate scans and impressions of your teeth and then produce same-day dental crowns and bridges within the dental clinic. If you receive an emergency root canal, you can walk out of the clinic with a proper dental crown, saving you another appointment.
