Scottsdale Emergency Dentist
If you have a dental emergency, we will see you the same day you call during our regular office hours. We are open Monday through Saturday.
Reasons to See an Emergency Dentist
- Toothache. The most common reason people seek emergency dental care is severe tooth pain. An infection inside the tooth usually causes this pain, and it won’t go away on its own.
- Broken dental work. If you have a crown or bridge or filling that breaks, you should visit the dentist right away. It is important to protect the vulnerable tooth from decay.
- Broken tooth. Especially if it is a front tooth, you’ll want some immediate attention.
- Knocked-out tooth. If you lose a tooth in an accident, clean it and keep it in a damp towel as you immediately head to our office. If you can get here within half an hour, we may be able to re-implant the tooth.
Emergency Toothache Care
Painful toothaches are often caused by an infection inside the pulp of the tooth. Fortunately, this infection is easy to treat. Dr. Dang will numb the tooth and treat the infection to get you out of pain. He may give you antibiotics to help fight the infection. At a later appointment, you may need root canal treatment to ensure the infection doesn’t return. Though root canals can have a bad reputation, with modern techniques the are much easier. They’re far less painful and traumatic than tooth extractions. With novocain, you won’t feel pain during the procedure. If you are very sensitive to dental pain, you may need sedation.
Oral Sedation for Anxious Patients
The number one reason people avoid dental care is fear. If you don’t get routine dental cleanings and exams, you’re more likely to have a dental emergency.
We understand if you’ve put off seeing the dentist because of anxiety. We enjoy treating nervous patients and helping them experience stress-free dental care, and we never judge. With mild oral sedation, you should be relaxed and comfortable. All you need to do is take the pill we prescribe before your visit. You’ll need someone to drive you to and from your appointment, as you’ll still be too sleepy to drive home afterward.
