Emergency Dentist Dental Care

A dental emergency is trauma that occurs to the mouth, gums, or teeth, and may require immediate attention. Knowing what to do in a dental emergency could ensure a better outcome. The best thing to do should you experience an emergency is to stay calm.

  • Call our Vancouver office at (360) 892-2994.

  • If you cannot reach our office for some reason, or if your emergency is life-threatening, dial 911 immediately.

Prior to arriving at our Vancouver, WA dental office, you may wish to rinse your mouth out with warm (not hot) salt water. If you are in severe pain, apply a cold compress to help alleviate the pain and reduce any swelling.

If you experience trauma that requires immediate attention, you will need an experienced dentist to perform a thorough examination. A emergency dentist is one who is experienced in evaluating tooth injuries and taking immediate action to save your natural tooth. Depending on the extent of the injury, our dentist may schedule several follow up visits to ensure the steps taken to save your tooth are working.

If your emergency dentist determines the injury will be a complicated case, our dentist will refer you to a specialist for follow up visits. This will be determined during your initial visit or a follow up visit. For example, an endodontist or root canal specialist may be needed for more complicated cases.

At Cascade Dental, our dentists are experienced in emergency dental procedures. If and when an emergency occurs, Cascade Dental is here to help. Your health and comfort are important to us, so call us right away.

How Can I Prevent Dental Emergencies?

Some dental emergencies can be prevented by planning and making better choices. Your teeth are not the replacement for scissors or other sharp object designed to cut. Treat your teeth with the appropriate care, so you can keep your beautiful smile and natural teeth. Patients can avoid dental injuries to the teeth and gums with these tips:

  • Wear a mouth piece when playing sports
  • Avoid the temptation to bite hard candy
  • Do not chew ice, hard nuts or other foods that could crack or chip a tooth.
  • Do not use your teeth to break a package open or cut wire.
