A dental emergency is any situation that poses an immediate threat to the health of your teeth and supporting tissues. Dental emergencies are often the result of impact to the mouth, but they also can be caused by infection. To ensure the best possible outcome, any dental emergency should be evaluated by a professional immediately.
If you are experiencing a dental emergency, we recommend you contact your general dentist first. Your general dentist will be able to advise what your treatment options are and if necessary will refer you to us. If your dentists want you to be seen in our office, we will offer same-day emergency services for most conditions.
For patients that have been already been seen in our office and are experiencing severe dental emergencies after hours, such as significant infection, pain or trauma please call our emergency number: Nordic Family Dental Phone Number (360) 779-4141 or text online with us via our online chat button.
For permanent teeth that are knocked out, rinse the tooth and put it back in the socket. If you can’t get the tooth back in the socket, place it in a container of milk, water or saliva to keep it moist. Do not touch the roots (handle the tooth by the crown) and don’t brush the tooth. Contact your general dentists IMMEDIATELY for information and emergency treatment – the sooner you get to us, the more likely your tooth can be saved!
For baby teeth that are unexpectedly knocked out, leave them out and contact the child’s dentist immediately for instructions.
If you can’t get into your dentist’s office immediately, here is a list of effective home remedies to make you more comfortable while you wait for care:
If a broken tooth has a sharp edge, cotton can be placed over it to protect soft tissues in your mouth.
Pain-Free Emergencies: Some dental emergencies may not cause pain initially. For example, a cracked tooth may not hurt, but it may lead to nerve damage in the roots. For this reason, all of the listed conditions need immediate attention, whether or not pain is present.
