Dental Emergencies

What are Dental Emergencies?

Dental emergencies can occur at any time and for a variety of reasons. They can leave you in pain, feeling frustrated, and with severe discomfort. We offer emergency care for both new and existing patients. We can provide help for adult and pediatric patients alike.

Why is Dental Emergency treatment needed?

If you’re experiencing an emergency and forgo treatment, the problem will often get worse. It’s very rare for dental problems to go away on their own without professional treatment. This can cause a minor issue to become more major, requiring extensive and invasive treatment to repair the damage. This is why we always recommend being seen right away as soon as you notice there’s a problem.

I hate going to the dentist, my kids absolutely adamantly refuse to go to the dentists, but Dr Nellie totally changed our perspective! I mean yes customer service is superb, staff is friendly office is sterile and technology is great, but what won us over is how unbelievably painless the whole process was! My daughter who screams bloody murder at the sight of the dentist did not even bat an eye when Dr Nellie put a crown on her broken tooth. She was literally stunned with how quick and smooth the whole procedure went. My teeth are super sensitive and cleaning is a torture for me. I barely felt anything with Dr Nellie, and my teeth are super clean, white and smooth. Absolutely loved the experience at her clinic, and 100% would recommend.

Just had a great experience in Federal Way Dentistry! Came for check up and broken tooth, Dr. Nellie offered me same day crown and like 90 min later I left the office with fixed tooth, new crown and clean teeth! I am really impressed with new technology and knowledge of the stuff! Federal Way Dentistry is my dentistry now.

Dr. Nellie Solovjov is very efficient, thorough, and gentle. She truly cares about her patients; I would recommend her to family, friends, and everyone, especially people with children, for she is very kind, compassionate, and patient. Her supporting staff, the assistants, dental hygienists, and office staff are all wonderful, caring people as well. 10 stars to Federal Way Dentistry!

What are some common Dental Emergencies?

An emergency often leaves a person in pain and dealing with severe discomfort. We provide care for a variety of different emergency situations. Some of the more common emergencies we handle on a daily basis include:

  • Pain and toothache
  • Abscesses and infections
  • Post-operative emergencies
  • Orthodontic emergencies
  • Cracked, fractured, or broken teeth
  • Loose or lost restorations
  • Sensitivity
  • Gum bleeding or inflammation
  • Wisdom tooth pain

What happens during the Dental Emergency appointment?

We will begin your appointment by asking about the problem. This gives us the ability to decipher if an x-ray is needed. If the x-ray is needed, it’ll be taken at this time and used to help diagnose the issue. We then work to examine your teeth and mouth to determine the best way to go about treating your dental issue. We can provide treatment at the appointment to relieve you of the pain and discomfort that you’re feeling. If you have an infection, we’ll recommend that you take antibiotics before any type of treatment is done. You will benefit from having emergency treatment, as it helps to prevent the problem from getting worse if ignored.

If you have a dental emergency, call our office today and we can work to get you in to be seen right away.
