Our Commitment to Your Dental Health

First and foremost, our commitment is to your dental health. We know that dental emergencies can be unsettling, and that's why we've made it our mission to offer compassionate, high-quality emergency dental care that puts your comfort and well-being first.

What Constitutes a Dental Emergency?

Dental emergencies can take various forms, and it's essential to recognize when you need urgent care. Here are some common situations that warrant immediate attention:

  • Severe Toothache:

    If you're experiencing intense and persistent tooth pain, it could be a sign of an infection or an abscess. Prompt treatment is crucial to alleviate your pain and prevent the issue from worsening.

  • Knocked-Out Tooth:

    A knocked-out tooth is a time-sensitive emergency. If you can, gently rinse the tooth (without scrubbing), place it back into the socket if possible, or keep it in milk and seek dental care immediately.

  • Broken or Chipped Tooth:

    A broken or chipped tooth can be both painful and aesthetically concerning. We can assess the damage and provide options for repair, such as dental bonding or a crown.

  • Lost Crown or Filling:

    If a crown or filling falls out, it can expose the underlying tooth to further damage. We can replace or re-cement the restoration to protect your tooth.

  • Gum or Soft Tissue Injury:

    Injuries to your gums or soft tissues should not be ignored. These injuries can lead to infections if left untreated. We can provide care and treatment to promote healing.

  • Dental Infections:

    Dental infections, like abscesses or gum infections, can lead to severe pain and swelling. Timely treatment is essential to prevent the infection from spreading.

  • Broken Orthodontic Appliances:

    If you have braces or other orthodontic appliances, a broken wire or bracket can be uncomfortable. We can make the necessary adjustments to keep you comfortable and on track with your treatment.

What to Do in a Dental Emergency

In a dental emergency, it's essential to stay as calm as possible and take the following steps:

  • 1. Contact Lake Cities Dental:

    As soon as you recognize the dental emergency, call our office. Our experienced team will provide guidance, assess the situation, and schedule an appointment for you as soon as possible.

  • 2. Rinse Gently:

    If you have a knocked-out tooth or a tooth that's been dislodged, rinse it gently with water without scrubbing. Handle the tooth by the crown (the part that's visible when you smile) and avoid touching the root.

  • 3. Keep the Tooth Moist:

    If possible, place the tooth back into the socket, ensuring it's facing the right way. If this isn't possible, keep the tooth in a container of milk or a special tooth preservation solution.

  • 4. Control Bleeding:

    If you're experiencing bleeding due to an injury, use clean gauze or a clean cloth to apply gentle pressure to the area to control bleeding.

  • 5. Over-the-Counter Pain Relief:

    If you're in pain, you can take over-the-counter pain relievers like ibuprofen (following the recommended dosage) to help manage discomfort until you receive treatment.
