We Offer Emergency Dental Care
Have a Dental Emergency?
Call EastSide Smiles now!
The severity and sudden onset of a dental emergency can make it a very stressful situation. When you are in pain and need relief fast, you want EastSide Smiles on your side. We reserve time in our busy schedule so we can always accept emergency patients on the same day they call us. With us, your dental emergency will be as pleasant as it is possible for it to be.
What are the most common dental emergencies?
Any number of problems can call for immediate dental care. Accidents frequently break a tooth or knock it out altogether. Some painful conditions such as severe toothaches and inflammation or bleeding of the gums may arise at any time. If you are experiencing intense discomfort that you feel needs urgent attention, please call EastSide Smiles’ office immediately!
How can I prepare my home for a dental emergency?
Your home’s first aid kit should be your first line of defense against a dental emergency. If your first aid kit does not have these items yet, please add floss, gauze, acetaminophen, and a container to transport a broken tooth to it. Keep the contact information for EastSide Smiles in your first aid kit as well.
What should my first step be in a dental emergency?
Even if you are uncertain whether your dental condition constitutes an emergency that requires immediate attention, please call EastSide Smiles anyway. We can determine whether your case is urgent, and the sooner you call the sooner we can treat you.
How can I prevent a dental emergency?
Unfortunately, the nature of emergencies is that they are oftentimes unavoidable. However, you can lessen the chance of an emergency occurring by brushing and flossing regularly, as well as by keeping up with your biannual cleanings and examinations. During such visits your dentist can detect signs of a problem before it poses an emergency.
EastSide Smiles does not penalize our patients for suffering from unexpected dental issues — the cost for treating your emergency will be the same as if you had scheduled it well in advance. Following your initial examination, we will ensure that you are comfortable with our plan of action and its pricing before we continue with treatment.
