Arrive on Time
Edge Dental Emergency is located at 15455 Memorial Dr #400 Houston. It’s an extremely accessible location, and our dental receptionist will gladly help you with the directions. We make every effort possible to see you on time, so you don’t have to wait for long. We request that you return the courtesy. If you cannot keep your appointment because of unexpected illnesses or emergencies, please let us know as soon as possible.
Your appointment at our dental clinic will start with a general examination and assessment. This is especially true for new patients. We aim to provide the best dental treatments possible, and we can only do that if we have a comprehensive understanding of your oral health and medical history. We will recommend a series of dental tests, most of them performed using cutting-edge technologies. The tests shouldn’t take long.
After the examination and assessments, our emergency dentist will discuss all of your symptoms and concerns. They will also review your health history and the results of your tests. Based on all of this information, the dentist will curate a personalized dental treatment plan. We believe all individuals are unique and should be treated as such. Your treatment will be designed to improve your oral health and help you maintain optimal health for a lifetime.
After curating the treatment plan, our emergency dentist will walk you through the entire process and initiate the treatment. Your treatment may be scheduled for the same day or another day, depending on your unique needs and concerns. Some of our emergency dental services include emergency root canals, emergency dental extractions, dental crowns, dental fillings, TMJ treatments, and much more. Please schedule a consultation to discuss your treatment options.

Do I Have a Dental Emergency?
Wisdom tooth extraction is one of the most common dental emergency services. This is necessary if you have an impacted wisdom tooth, indicated by extreme toothaches, infections, and overcrowded teeth.
You should contact an emergency dentist if you have a damaged crown. That’s because the crown may harm your soft tissues or increase the risk of bacterial infections. The dentist will replace or fix the dental crown.
If you have lost your dental filling, you must contact an emergency dentist for an evaluation and replacement filling. Leaving your dental cavity open is extremely dangerous and increases the risk of bacterial infections.
If you have a broken or cracked tooth, you may need an emergency root canal or an emergency dental extraction, depending on the severity of the dental crack. The emergency dentist will determine the extent of the damage.
Gum pain and swelling are common symptoms of an abscessed tooth, i.e., a tooth with a bacterial infection. The emergency dentist will drain the cyst and perform an emergency root canal or dental extraction.
If you have a knocked-out tooth, please contact an emergency dentist as soon as possible, ideally within an hour. The dentist can possibly reattach the tooth if you’re fast and the tooth is intact and healthy.
Schedule Your Second Opinion
