Emergency Dentistry in Issaquah
Safe, Professional, & Personable Treatment Options
Our team understands a dental emergency can be an inconvenience. Dr. Herzog takes dental emergencies just as seriously as his patients. We do everything in our power to get patients into our office the same day they call and resolve the issue as quickly as possible.
What Dental Emergencies Can We Help With?
We see patients suffering from a broken or cracked teeth, permanent teeth that have been knocked out, objects caught between teeth, severe toothaches, swollen gums/face, and any other scenario where the patient is suffering from mouth pain and may not know the cause.
All dental emergencies are seen during our normal practice hours. We can typically get emergency patients in same-day or next-day for treatment.
How to handle a dental emergency:
- Bitten lip or tongue:
Apply pressure to stop any bleeding that may have occurred, then apply ice to the area on and off, being careful not to leave the ice cube on one spot very long. Next, rinse your mouth out with an antibacterial mouthwash to prevent infection. Inspect the wound to see if it’s superficial. If it is, treatment is not likely needed. If the wound seems deep, give us a call so we can assess further.
- Object caught in teeth:
Gently try to remove the object with a piece of floss. If it does not come out easily or if it appears to cause damage to the surrounding gums when trying to remove, call our office.
- Broken, chipped, or fractured tooth:
Rinse your mouth out with warm water to help reduce infection and clean the area. Then apply a cold compress to your face where the tooth chipped to help reduce swelling. Call our office immediately.
- Knocked-out tooth:
If you are able to recover the tooth, make sure to keep it moist the entire time, as this may help us be able to save the tooth. Get to our office as quickly as possible.
Gently floss around the sore tooth to see if a piece of food is causing the sore tooth/gums. If the pain persists, call our office so we can take a look at the tooth and potentially take X-rays, as the pain may be generated from something below the surface.
- Broken jaw:
Because there is a risk of causing severe breathing problems, we recommend you seek immediate medical attention from your local area hospital if you have broken or dislocated your jaw.
If you experience intense bleeding or your emergency extends beyond dental care, please go to the nearest emergency room for assistance.
We try to accommodate emergency dental patients as fast as possible. We can typically fit dental emergencies into our next business day schedule. However, we only see dental emergencies during normal business hours.
