Dental problems do not always wait for normal office hours. Broken fillings or damaged teeth are common reasons for emergency treatment. Toothaches and abscesses can also require prompt attention. Call our office at the first onset of pain. Dr. Amanda Rentschler, Dr. Emily Hobart, and our team can provide you with the information and treatment you need to eliminate pain or discomfort and prevent the problem from becoming worse. Emergency dental care in Mount Vernon is only a phone call away, 24 hours a day, seven days a week.
Common Dental Emergencies
Severe Toothache. Toothaches are often treated by having an extraction or a root canal. Root canals are usually referred to the endodontic specialist. Sometimes, it is necessary to refer an extraction to the oral surgeon.
Fracture or avulsion of permanent front teeth. If a fracture is not too severe, it is repaired with a composite filling. If a tooth is completely knocked out, it is important to call immediately so the tooth can be placed back into the socket, splinted for stability, referred for any additional needed procedures, and monitored properly.
Emergency Dentistry at Roosevelt Dental Center of Skagit County
When it comes to our patients’ dental emergencies, we are often able to accommodate patients the same day they call. If it is a fractured tooth that requires more lengthy treatment, we will smooth the rough area and sometimes place a temporary filling, if indicated. Frequently, we are able to replace missing fillings same day, or complete an extraction same day, if needed.
We are fortunate enough to practice dentistry in a beautiful setting: a modern office building with a home-style feel and set near a green belt, surrounded by nature. We offer nitrous oxide in all of our treatment rooms for those who may be experiencing anxiety regarding their emergency appointment. To show how much we care about you and your experience in our office, we place follow up phone calls after invasive procedures to ensure your well-being.
Everything we do is designed to create a pleasant, hassle-free dental experience, whether you are here for a routine checkup or an urgent dental issue.
