Lacey’s Best Emergency Dentist

Emergency Dentistry

It’s not common to think of the dentist when you visualize a medical emergency scenario, but problems with your teeth can be painful and unbearable and they need direct attention. Our providers can help assist you with toothaches, missing teeth, or jaw pain on short notice. If you have no insurance, our office offers a cash discount or CareCredit with financing available.

Emergency Dental Services

Our expert dentists can help in the case of:

Toothaches: Toothaches often seem like a minor issue, but they can lead to major problems. Ignoring a toothache for a long period of time can cause rapid tooth decay possibly leading into the nerve and forming an abscess. If you have sweet, temperature, or biting sensitivity, call us for an exam.

Breaks, Chips, or Cracks: Accidents are a part of life, but it is important to never ignore broken or chipped teeth. Even if there is no pain, it is important to restore the teeth to minimize the chance of the tooth breaking further.

Loosened or Avulsed Teeth: Exercise is excellent for your health, but sometimes results in accidents. Sports injuries do more than just crack teeth; they can cause teeth to fall out entirely. Our doctors can help with emergencies involving loose or knocked-out teeth.

To avoid further damage after an injury, wash your mouth with warm water and apply a cold compress on your face to alleviate pain and puffiness. If the tooth has completely fallen out, do not touch it or wash it, simply put it in milk and bring it to the office as soon as possible. Our doctors can talk to you about options and may even be able to reinsert your tooth with a stabilizer. Fractured pieces of teeth can be replaced with either fillings or crowns, depending on the extent of the fracture. Evading speedy dental care can end in emergency root canals later.
