Emergency Dentistry Relieves Pain and Supports Long-term Oral Health

No matter how well you plan to prepare ahead of time, accidents can happen, and dental accidents aren’t an exception. Seeing an emergency dentist immediately after your incident can be the difference between saving and losing your tooth.

Eckland Family Dental offers emergency dentistry services in the Everett and Redmond areas. If you encounter an excruciating toothache or broken tooth, schedule an appointment with Dr. Kale Eckland and his team for urgent dental care. Our emergency dental care resolves pain and prevents the condition from causing irreversible damage.

What counts as a dental emergency?

It’s any dental situation that requires immediate attention. Delaying or putting off treatment for a dental emergency causes unnecessary pain, tooth loss, and possible systematic infections. Visit an emergency dentist when you experience the following.

  • A cracked, fractured, or broken tooth
  • A knocked-out (avulsed) tooth
  • An excruciating toothache
  • An abscessed tooth
  • A loose or lost filling or crown
  • Uncontrollable bleeding on the lips, gums, or cheeks

Dental emergencies should be taken seriously. They’re not something you ignore, hoping it will resolve itself. In fact, dental emergencies tend to worsen, often causing irreversible damage. If you are unsure whether your dental situation is a dental emergency, err on the side of caution by calling us. Let us decide whether you need a same-day appointment or should wait.

How We Handle Dental Emergencies

The most important thing to do when you have a dental emergency is to remain calm and call an emergency dentist. We’ll give you instructions on handling your situation over the phone before you arrive at our office.

When you reach our office, our team will promptly diagnose you to determine the root cause of your dental woe. After diagnosis, we’ll administer one or a combination of the following treatments.

  • A tooth filling to treat a cavity
  • Dental crown or onlays for significantly damaged teeth
  • Emergency root canal to treat an infected tooth
  • Emergency dental extraction for a tooth damaged beyond restoration
  • Medication to manage pain and infections

While our immediate goal after an emergency is to relieve pain and restore oral health, we’ll give you ongoing care to ensure dental emergencies don’t arise in the future. We’ll emphasize the importance of routine exams, cleanings, and at-home oral hygiene. Your dentist will also educate you on the importance of a mouthguard if you brux teeth or participate in contact sports.
