Don’t Delay Emergency Treatment for These Dental Problems
Dental emergencies can come in all shapes and sizes, so you may be unsure if your situation requires immediate treatment. In general, if you’re in pain, then it’s an emergency. Below are several types of urgent dental problems, along with steps to take before your appointment with us:
- Toothache – A toothache could indicate a bigger problem such as an abscess. Call our office so we can treat you before it turns into a more painful situation. For pain relief, rinse your mouth with warm water. A cold compress also helps reduce pain and swelling.
- Knocked-Out Tooth – We may be able to save your tooth if you bring it to our Seattle office as soon as possible. Place the tooth in a container of milk to preserve it. Be sure to avoid touching the roots of the tooth.
- Dislodged Tooth – Use a cold compress to relieve pain and swelling. Call our office as soon as possible for an appointment.
- Loose or Broken Crown – Try to slip the crown back over your tooth, if possible. Secure it with denture adhesive until your appointment.
Get Your Smile Back With Restorative Treatments
Dr. Koo will likely resolve your emergency with one of these restorative treatments :
- Tooth Fillings – If you have a painful cavity, we’ll stop your discomfort and protect your tooth from further decay with a composite filling that looks completely natural in your smile. If you’d prefer, you can get a metal filling instead.
- Dental Crowns – Dr. Koo uses durable porcelain crowns to fix broken teeth, cracked teeth, or extremely decayed teeth. With proper care, your crown should last at least a decade and often many years more.
- Inlays or Onlays – These restorations are sometimes called partial crowns. As the name indicates, they are larger than a filling but smaller than a standard crown.
- Root Canals – When the inside of your tooth becomes infected, you’re at risk of losing it. Plus, infection can be quite painful. Dr. Koo will remove the infected material from your tooth and sanitize it to stop the pain and save your tooth.
Don’t wait to call us at 206-922-4573 if you need emergency dental care in Seattle! Use our after-hours number at night and on weekends: 425-954-5374. You can also if your situation isn’t urgent.
Stay Stress-Free During Your Emergency With Sedation
Even if you normally don’t mind visiting the dentist, a dental emergency may make you nervous. We can administer nitrous oxide to keep you relaxed throughout your treatment. It is:
- Safe – Nitrous oxide, also known as laughing gas, has been used in dentistry since the mid-1800s. Even young children can receive it.
- Flexible – It’s easy for us to increase or decrease the amount you receive during your treatment.
- Non-Invasive – You simply breathe it in through a small mask.
- Fast-Acting – You won’t need to wait long to experience its calming effects. You’ll feel a calm euphoria within minutes.
- Not Likely to Linger – Unlike other sedatives, you’ll feel alert within minutes. You should be able to drive yourself home and resume normal activity right away.
