Dental Emergency Q & A

When should I see an emergency dentist?

You should contact an emergency dentist any time you experience a serious issue regarding your teeth or oral health. Some of the most common types of dental emergencies include:

  • Biting into your cheeks or tongue 
  • Pus or bleeding around a tooth
  • Severe, throbbing toothache
  • A broken or fractured tooth
  • Knocked out tooth

It’s important to seek immediate dental emergency care any time you experience these types of issues, among others, to restore your oral health and treat infections. Your emergency dentist can get you treated right away and help you with any pain you’re experiencing.

How can an emergency dentist help me?

Arizona Advanced Dental welcomes same-day appointments for dental emergencies, so everyone in your family can receive high-quality dental care when they need it most. Dr. Clifford and Dr. Cutler can gather any essential imaging on-site to diagnose your condition and provide any of the following emergency dental treatments (to name a few):

  • Perform a root canal 
  • Repair a broken or chipped tooth
  • Clean and suture open wounds
  • Extract the abscessed or damaged tooth
  • Place a knocked-out tooth back in the socket
  • Prescribe antibiotics or pain-relieving medications

With their expertise in general dentistry and oral surgery, as well as cosmetic dentistry, Dr. Clifford and Dr. Cutler can restore your smile and bite and help you recover from the most complex of dental emergencies. 

Is emergency dental treatment painful?

When you come into Arizona Advanced Dental for a dental emergency, the team understands how overwhelming the experience may be. They’re diligent about ensuring you get seen right away, so Dr. Clifford or Dr. Cutler can evaluate the extent of your dental emergency.

In many cases, you can receive a local numbing injection right away to help your pain subside. Arizona Advanced Dental proudly offers a variety of sedation dentistry options, including nitrous oxide (laughing gas) and conscious sedation medications, so you can focus on recovering, rather than on pain and discomfort. 

You can book your appointment at Arizona Advanced Dental through the website, or you can call to speak with a team member if you’re having a dental emergency.
