At Oasis Family Dentistry, our team will do everything we can to make time available for patients suffering from dental emergencies. To get your issue handled, give our dental office a call as soon as possible to schedule an appointment with your emergency dentist in Woodinville, WA, Tim Hung, DDS!

Why Choose Oasis Family Dentistry for Emergency Dentistry?

How to Handle Common Dental Emergencies

While different dental emergencies require different approaches to care, it’s important that you give our dental office a call to schedule an appointment regardless of the type of emergency you’re experiencing. You’ll have a higher chance of getting to our dental office the same day as your emergency and be able to ask any questions you might have about your issue. Before you arrive, here’s what you can do depending on the type of dental emergency you’re having.

Toothaches

Use dental floss to remove potential food debris from between your teeth. If discomfort continues, take ibuprofen and apply a cold compress if any swelling is present. The cause could be tooth decay or an infection, but we won’t be able to tell for sure until you visit our dental office for closer examination.

Chipped/Broken Tooth

Keep any pieces of the tooth that you can and bring them to the dental office. If swelling is present, apply a cold compress for 10 minutes at a time, followed by removing for an additional 10 minutes. You can repeat this process for up to one hour. If the tooth can be saved, we’ll begin designing a crown to cover the tooth and prevent future fracture.

Knocked-Out Tooth

Do your best to stay calm. Locate the tooth and pick it up by the crown portion. Do not touch the root or remove any tissue still attached. After gently rinsing off any dirt or debris, place the tooth back into your socket to keep it preserved. You can also keep it in a container of milk or saltwater for up to one hour. Get to our dental office as soon as possible so we can attempt to re-implant the tooth, otherwise you’ll need to start considering your tooth replacement options.

If you still have the restoration, use dental cement, denture adhesive, or sugar-free chewing gum if nothing else is available to temporarily cover your damaged tooth. While you should always bring the restoration to the dental office with you, we’ll likely need to replace it, especially if it’s very old.

The Cost of Treating Dental Emergencies

Whether your dental emergency requires simple antibiotics or root canal therapy, we want to make sure that you get it handled sooner rather than later. The complexity of your issue will largely influence the cost of treatment, but we can’t provide an exact price until you come to our dental office for closer examination. No matter what it costs, we’ll help create a financing plan that is reasonable while still addressing your emergency as much as possible.
