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 schedule online if your situation isn’t urgent.

Common Questions About Emergency Dental Care

What would be considered a dental emergency?

If you’re in pain, it’s a dental emergency. If you’ve experienced damage that affects a tooth’s function, it’s an emergency. It’s best to see us ASAP so we can resolve your problem as quickly as possible and get you feeling better. Fortunately, we make it easy to reach us even outside of regular business hours, and we offer same-day appointments in many cases.

What can I do about a dental emergency on the weekend?

The best thing to do is to call us on the number we provide for emergency situations that occur after hours and on the weekend. We can then advise you on how to handle your emergency until you’re able to see us. In many cases, your actions can affect the outcome of your treatment.

Can I go to the ER for emergency dental care?

You can seek emergency dental care at the ER – but there won’t be a dentist on staff to treat you. They can stop any bleeding and possibly provide pain relief. Most important, they can provide antibiotics if you have a fever or other signs of infection. You’ll need to see a dentist ASAP to actually address your problem.
