Emergency Dentistry is an area of dentistry that focuses on addressing dental issues that arise suddenly or unexpectedly. If you experience any dental emergencies, such as a cut lip, a knocked-out tooth, a broken tooth, or a severe toothache, it is very important to visit the dentist in order to avoid further dental complications.
The emergency dentist will be able to diagnose and treat the condition, depending on its severity. To treat your urgent dental condition on time, you can call our office at (360) 651-2900 to schedule an appointment.
Dental emergencies often occur due to an accident or trauma. If you experience any of the following dental emergencies, visit our office immediately:
If you have a knocked-out tooth, do not try to put it back into place. Place the tooth in a glass of milk and bring it along with you to our office. If the tooth is not retrieved within 2 hours of being knocked out, it is unlikely that your dentist will be able to restore it.
Cut Lip or Mouth
A cut lip or mouth can result from biting your lip or cheek while eating something hard, playing sports or other recreational activities, etc. It is important to clean the wound with warm water and apply pressure for the bleeding to stop. If it doesn't stop, visit the dentist immediately.
If you get a broken tooth because of an accident or trauma, visit our office immediately. The dentist will try to determine the cause of the break by taking X-rays and performing a clinical evaluation. Treatment for a broken tooth will depend on the extent of damage and may require crowns, bridges, root canals, or even extraction.
A severe toothache can occur if you have cavities or gum diseases or if you have accidentally bitten your gums or tongue while eating hard foods or playing sports. The pain can be excruciating if the infection has spread beyond the teeth and gums, causing an abscess. So get it treated as soon as possible.
