Find a solution to your dental emergency
No one plans to have a dental emergency, and that’s why we offer affordable emergency dental exams, so you don’t need to wait to get the care you need to relieve your dental pain.
The Importance of Prompt Emergency Care
Same-Day Dental Care
Looking for immediate care? Same-day dentistry gets you in our office right away, so you can quickly get back to a healthy oral state. During your visit, your dentist will examine the dental injury and craft an immediate plan to heal and restore your smile that very same day.
After Hours Appointments
Not all dental emergencies happen during business hours! That’s why we offer after-hours appointments for patients experiencing emergencies that can’t wait to be treated. Call our office to schedule an appointment if you are experiencing a dental emergency beyond our usual hours. Our team will do everything we can to work with your schedule, alleviate your pain, and get your smile back to thriving health.
If a dental emergency occurs over the weekend, there’s no need for you to wait in pain until Monday for an appointment. Our office provides limited weekend availability and appointments by request to ensure you receive the immediate treatment you deserve.
When issues arise, our team can perform problem-focused exams (also known as limited exams) to help address the issues. Limited exams allow us to focus on what’s hurting or injured so we can get you out of pain and back to normal again.
Digital X-Rays & Imaging
Better diagnostics means better results. With modern imaging techniques, we can quickly and accurately assess your dental emergency, and create a treatment plan right away, so you can relieve your dental pain and get back to your life.
Emergency dentistry provides immediate care for patients suffering from severe oral pain, toothaches, and dental injuries. The goal is to alleviate pain and get the mouth back to a healthy state again. Since emergencies can happen at any time, dentists provide same-day, after-hours, or weekend appointments. Get the care that can’t wait with emergency dentistry.

What To Do In A Dental Emergency
Keep Calm & Reduce Bleeding
Any dental injury can turn a regular day into a stressful, painful situation. However, it’s important to stay calm, and remember that your Bonney Lake dentist is here to help. Just taking a few deep breaths and assessing the situation will make it easier to make the right decisions in an emergency. If your dental injury or accident has caused bleeding of any kind, apply pressure with a sterile strip of gauze to the afflicted area. Keep the gauze in place until the bleeding stops, or until you reach our office.
Control Swelling & Pain
Over-the-counter pain medication like ibuprofen or acetaminophen can help to temporarily alleviate any pain or swelling you may be experiencing. However, it’s important to avoid blood-thinning medications like aspirin, as they inhibit clotting and make it difficult to control the flow of blood. In addition to medication, you can also relieve pain with a cold compress by applying an ice pack to the cheek or lip near the affected area.
Call Us Right Away
Once you’ve gained control of your dental emergency, give us a call. Even if you’re unsure if your situation counts as an emergency, our team can help assess the severity of the injury, and get you in our office as soon as possible to receive the care you need.
