Cashmere & Wenatchee's Emergency Dentistry
A dental emergency is typically sudden and unexpected. Knowing that you have a trusted, caring doctor with years of experience in your corner is a wonderful reassurance in the face of a painful emergency situation.
Drs. Ryan and Janie Busk provide an extensive array of emergency dental services, extractions, and more, including treatment of excruciating toothache pain, soft tissue injuries, lost crowns, lost fillings, and cracked or dislodged teeth.
What Is a Dental Emergency?
Some dental emergencies are relatively obvious in their urgency: a tooth that has been knocked out, fractured, or partially dislodged should be treated as soon as possible at our practice.
Other potentially serious problems, including a persistent toothache, may not seem like an actual emergency at first; extreme pain in one or more of your teeth, however, should be treated as an emergency because your symptoms may signify a considerable underlying problem. A full list of oral and dental health problems that should be considered urgent includes:
- Lost filling or crown
- Abscess in the gum
- Cracked or chipped tooth
- Objects that are stuck between teeth and cannot be removed
- Extruded tooth (partially dislodged
- Loose or broken brackets in patients with braces
- Broken braces
- Fully dislodged tooth
- Persistent toothache
- Bleeding in the mouth that does not subside
- Soft tissue injuries, including inner cheeks, lips, tongue, and gums
- Jaw injury
While many dental emergencies occur as a result of unavoidable circumstances (including a sudden fall or the development of an unknown infection within a tooth), there are ways that you can help keep yourself and your family safer.
Never use your teeth as tools to open packages and always wear a mouthguard when playing sports. These simple precautionary measures can help prevent serious and painful dental emergencies.
The most common reasons for tooth extraction include a tooth that has been irreparably damaged via decay or injury, impaction or is negatively affecting the position or growth of other teeth. Throughout the course of your procedure, our doctors and team will ensure that you are completely comfortable with sedation and pain relief options that are customized just for you.
For patients seeking lifelike, reliable replacement teeth, we offer a wide selection of restorative dentistry options that effectively rebuild and rejuvenate your smile.
