Emergency Care

Woman with tooth pain looking or emergency dental servciesThere’s never a good time for a dental emergency. Unfortunately, they always seem to happen in the evening or on a Saturday when you least expect them. If you are experiencing a dental emergency, it’s important to have it treated quickly. Call our Kirkland office, even if it’s after hours. Whenever possible, we will schedule a same day appointment. After hours and on weekends, Dr. Manson makes himself available to talk you through the problem over the phone.

What Dental Emergencies Do You Treat?

Some of the most common emergencies we see are chipped teeth, broken fillings, or other accidental injuries. Broken teeth are often painful or unsightly. The damaged surface can catch your tongue or cheek when you chew, causing additional discomfort. If the break is very deep, the tooth could be open to food particles and infection. Typically, immediate care is the best way to prevent further damage.

Dental Pain and Toothaches

Dental pain could be due to several causes. It may be something as simple as having something stuck under the gums, or it could be as significant as an abscessed tooth. Either way, toothaches are serious business. If left unattended, it can keep you from eating meals, focusing during the day, or from sleeping at night.

When Should You Call Us?

If you’re not able to go on with your normal routine (such as eating or going to work or school) let us know right away.

Be sure to let us know if you are experiencing swelling in your gums, as this may be a sign that you have an abscess. Anti-Inflammatory medicine like Ibuprofen can help swelling and pain, but an antibiotic may be needed to eliminate the infection. However, in order to save your tooth for good, you may need a root canal.

It is very important to have dental pain checked right away. Ignoring it will only allow the problem to get worse and could affect your general health.

On March 19, Gov. Jay Inslee announced new restrictions on non-urgent medical and dental procedures so the state can make sure Washington health care workers have enough protective equipment to wear as they work the front lines of the COVID-19 pandemic. The order applies to any non-urgent procedure that requires medical and dental professionals to wear personal protective equipment (i.e. gloves, masks, gowns, etc). From now until May 18, 2020, all dental offices in Washington State must limit care to emergency treatment only, including our practice. 

Please note that effective March 23rd, all appointments between now and May 18th will need to be rescheduled. Please wait for our team to reach out to reschedule your appointment. We will have limited staff working at various intervals to handle any questions you may have, as well as take care of your emergency dental needs. Please feel free to leave a voicemail for our office and we will return your call at our first availability. Please be patient with us as we work to return the many questions coming our way. 

While this mandated closure is out of our control, we will continue to control what we can: to smile, stay positive and share kindness as we head into unknown territory. We are confident that the good fortune we have had to deliver outstanding dental care, will once again return and we are looking forward to that day. Until then, stay well.
