Benefits of Emergency Dental Treatment

If you are experiencing a dental emergency, it is critical that you seek treatment as quickly as possible. There are several benefits associated with seeking emergency treatment, including:
  • Same day treatment
  • Immediate pain relief
  • Available 24/7
  • Salvage a damaged/decayed tooth
  • Prevent infection

If you are experiencing pain, swelling, and/or uncontrollable bleeding, you qualify for emergency dental treatment at Diamond Dental. We have offices in Bellingham and Mount Vernon.

Root Canals

While many patients are concerned about root canals, modern dentistry often makes this procedure quick and simple. Infected teeth in danger of extraction can be disinfected and filled with a sealer, offering a safe, effective solution for a problematic situation.

Oral Surgery

Minor surgical procedures are sometimes necessary to treat dental issues. Defects in the bone or supporting gum tissue may require repair with simple, yet precise surgical techniques.

Bone Grafting

The bone around your teeth is special and doesn’t regenerate when it’s lost. Your teeth rely on this bony foundation to remain stable and functional. Sometimes we can repair these defects by adding bone grafting materials.

Types of Dental Emergencies​

At Diamond Dental, some of the most common types of dental emergencies we deal with include:

  • Severe toothache
  • Cracked/broken tooth
  • Knocked out tooth
  • Loose tooth (due to trauma)
  • Abscess (swelling of face/jaw)

When Should You Seek Emergency Treatment? ​

If you have uncontrollable pain, swelling, and/or bleeding, it is critical that you contact the clinic as soon as possible. If you can get the bleeding under control and manage pain and swelling with OTC pain relievers such as ibuprofen or acetaminophen, we consider your case to be urgent but should be able to wait until regular office hours for an appointment.
