Our team handles dental emergencies at Redmond Smiles

Imagine enjoying a casual weekend bike ride when an unexpected fall leads to a chipped or knocked-out tooth. Situations like these call for prompt dental intervention to alleviate pain, prevent further damage, and possibly save the tooth. At Redmond Smiles, Drs. Colby Eckland and Lee Zamos are pleased to provide care for dental emergencies with same-day dentistry at their Redmond, Washington, office.

What is considered a situation that warrants emergency dental care?

Emergency dentistry is a crucial branch of dental care that attends to acute oral health issues requiring immediate attention. Emergency dental conditions can range from severe toothaches and abscesses to lost fillings or crowns, each presenting its challenges and urgency for treatment. When you have a walk-in dentist available, such as the team at Redmond Smiles, you know you will have the care you need when you need it!

What should I do in the event of a dental emergency?

Knowing how to react before you can reach your same-day dentist can be pivotal. For example, in the case of a knocked-out tooth, the American Dental Association and our team recommend keeping the tooth moist by placing it back in the socket without touching the root or in milk if reinsertion is not possible. This can significantly increase the chances of saving the tooth. Emergency dentists like ours specialize in these urgent care scenarios, offering services beyond regular office hours to address dental emergencies efficiently and with the necessary expertise.

Understanding the signs that warrant immediate dental attention and the steps to mitigate damage before professional care is available can be lifesaving. This knowledge prepares individuals to act swiftly and appropriately in the face of dental emergencies and highlights the importance of regular dental care in preventing sudden oral health issues. It is advisable to have the contact information of your local emergency dental office, Redmond Smiles, readily available and to familiarize yourself with basic first aid measures for dental emergencies.
