Common Types of Dental Emergencies
- Broken Tooth Restoration
- Chronic Toothache
- Cracked or Chipped Tooth
- Knocked-Out Tooth
If your tooth restoration (filling, crown, bridge, or denture) breaks, please visit our office right away so we can preserve the restoration.
If you have a persistent or throbbing toothache, we recommend icing the area of your cheek closest to the tooth and call our office for an emergency visit.
If your tooth breaks, try to collect as many pieces as possible and bring them with you to your emergency appointment.
If your permanent tooth is knocked out, put it back into the socket and bite down gently on a piece of gauze to keep it in place. If you can’t put it back, transport it to our office in a cup of milk.
Is Emergency Dentistry Covered by Insurance?
It depends on your insurance plan. If you’re unsure about your emergency coverage, you can call our office and our financial coordinator can look into it for you. If you aren’t covered, don’t fret. We offer and accept a variety of payment methods to help ease the burden of your emergency visit on your wallet.CALL NOW 253-864-0310

Can an emergency dentist provide sedation for anxious patients?
Emergency dental visits can be scary experiences, especially when a patient is not used to receiving restorative dental work. Our office provides IV sedation, which can help patients feel much more relaxed and at ease during their dental treatments. Our team is trained to administer IV sedation safely and effectively, and we can review your treatment plan and current health status to determine if sedation should be added to your emergency visit.
Should I go to the ER or an emergency dentist?
When a dental-related emergency occurs, many patients will head to their local emergency room for immediate assistance. Unfortunately, many ERs lack the equipment and experienced staff necessary to treat issues that are tooth, gum, or mouth-related. If you have any additional injuries that are more urgent, then visiting the emergency room first is likely the best choice. If your emergency is strictly dental-related, however, we recommend making an appointment with our team at your earliest convenience.
Is a loose tooth considered a dental emergency?
While a loose tooth is exciting for young kids, a loose permanent tooth is a serious situation for teens and adults. Permanent teeth should never be loose, and if any of your teeth feel wiggly, it’s likely that they are on the verge of falling out. We recommend scheduling a visit with our team as soon as you can to prevent the tooth from falling out completely, as that will increase the odds that we will be able to restore your tooth. Should we determine that removing and replacing the tooth is a better option, we can assist you with that as well.
