Lake Sammamish Dental Emergencies

Emergency Dental Care in Issaquah

When you’re dealing with a dental problem, your dentist should be your first call. But what if you encounter a problem on a holiday, weekend, or in the middle of the night? If you’re dealing with a severe dental problem outside normal office hours, you will likely need an emergency dentist or even an emergency room visit. Dr. Sciabica is available to help!

If you have questions or are not sure if you have a dental emergency, please do not hesitate to call our office.

Understanding Urgency

Not every dental situation should be considered an emergency. To help you determine if you can wait to be seen by Dr. Sciabica or if you need his urgent care, ask yourself the following questions:

Understanding Dental Urgency
  • Are you in severe pain? Severe pain and bleeding are signs of an emergency.
  • Have you lost a tooth? Fast treatment can potentially save a tooth.
  • Do you have loose teeth? Adults should never lose teeth. A loose tooth, even without pain, is a serious problem.
  • Do you have an infection? An abscess or serious infection in your mouth can be potentially life-threatening, and treatment should not wait. You may notice swelling or knots on your gums or swelling around the face.
  • Are you bleeding from the mouth? This is a potential sign of an emergency.

In general, any dental problem that needs immediate treatment to stop bleeding, alleviate severe pain, or save a tooth is considered an emergency. This consideration also applies to severe infections that can be life-threatening.

If you have any of these symptoms, you may be experiencing a dental emergency. Give us a call right away to let us know what happened.
