Care When You Need it Most
Emergency Dentistry in Queen Anne
Dental emergencies can happen to the best of us, whether an oral injury has broken a tooth or severe decay has resulted in an infection. No matter what issue is causing you oral pain, our team at Seattle Dental Co. will address your needs efficiently and get you out of pain. We address the cause of your issue and not just the symptoms, so you can rest assured that you’ll get back to optimal health after treatment with Dr. Song or Dr. Guerrero.
Immediate Dental Care
When it comes to dental emergencies, it is critical to get the care you need as quickly as possible. If your tooth has been knocked out, you’ll need to see a dentist to have it re-implanted within 1-2 hours for the best results. For this reason, the team at Seattle Dental Co. keeps emergency appointment slots available in our schedule for current patients and walk-ins.
It’s not always easy to know if you’re experiencing a dental emergency. Some conditions like dental injuries, pain, swelling, excessive bleeding, and knocked-out teeth are obviously emergencies. However, not all dental emergencies are painful. If you break a tooth, or pull out a piece of dental work like a filling or a crown, this is also considered an emergency and we recommend making an appointment as soon as possible.
If you can, we ask that you call ahead at (206) 284-4412 to let us know that you’ll be stopping by to address an emergency. This gives us time to assess your situation and prepare for your visit before you arrive.
We’ll Accommodate Your Schedule
