Dental emergencies can be very stressful. It’s terrible for your own tooth to be severely damaged or knocked out. It can almost be worse to see it happen to someone you care about.

Try to stay calm, and call Pacific Northwest Smiles right away. We’ll find the soonest appointment we can for you. We’ll do our best to treat you the same day you call. You don’t even have to be one of our regular patients!
We also have an after-hours emergency phone number you can call if it’s nighttime.
With a wealth of experience with dental trauma and emergencies, we can stay calm, professional, and friendly. We’ll strive to make you as comfortable as we can. We’ll work quickly to relieve your pain and attempt to save your tooth. Whatever your dental emergency, we are prepared to get you health again!
No one really expects a dental emergency. It’s hard to plan for it, but you can be as prepared as possible by doing the following:
- Have Our Numbers Ready: When you’re in an emergency, searching for a phone number wastes time and makes you feel panicked. Add our phone numbers to your contacts in your phone, or put them up on a sticky note where you’ll be able to see them.
- Practice Preventive Habits: Cavities are one of the most common reasons patients suddenly develop terrible toothaches and need a same-day appointment. Prevent cavities as much as possible by brushing twice a day and flossing once per day. Be sure to attend your regular appointments as well, so we can spot decay before it gets worse.
- Protect Teeth from Impacts: If you or a family member is active in sports, get a protective mouth guard or other appropriate safety equipment immediately. Ensure that teeth are covered when they could be struck by accident.
Taking these simple steps can save you trouble down the road.
