An emergency dentist in Kirkland treats dental and mouth injuries that need immediate attention. Most dental emergencies are situations in which you might lose a broken or knocked-out tooth for good.
Making it to Kirkland Premier Dentistry as soon as you can after your injury, preferably within 30 minutes, could mean the difference between saving and losing your injured tooth.
Whenever you are concerned about a severe mouth injury or condition for yourself or a member of your family, it’s a good idea to seek immediate emergency dental care. Some situations that are considered dental emergencies include:
Chipping a tooth in and of itself doesn't always warrant emergency dental care. If the tooth is chipped, but it doesn't appear as if you'll lose the tooth entirely, it's probably not a dental emergency.
Even so, you can't go wrong by calling an experienced dentist at Kirkland Premier Dentistry. They're trained to handle dental emergencies and can walk you through what to do with your tooth until you can visit the office.
Quick action is imperative for a dental emergency like a knocked-out tooth. Without immediate dental care, you could lose the tooth entirely.
To try and save the tooth, start by cleaning the injured tooth and the inside of your mouth. Rinse your mouth and tooth with warm water, being careful not to touch the tooth by the roots.
Hold the tooth by the crown (the smooth white top part) as you rinse it. Using light pressure, reposition the cleaned tooth in the empty socket in your gum. Close your mouth and bite down gently on the tooth, if you can
It might help to bite down on a soft piece of gauze until you can visit Kirkland Premier Dentistry. Call the office right away. Or, have a family member or friend call to let our staff know you're on your way. Call 425-243-6170
What should you do if you can't put the tooth back in your mouth? The goal is to keep the tooth moist at all times. Put it in a cup of milk or in your mouth next to your cheek to help preserve it until you arrive at the dental office.
Don't let a broken tooth prevent you from enjoying your smile. Call Kirkland Premier Dentistry for expert assistance in the event of a dental emergency or book an online appointment now.
Let’s be real here, how many people truly “love” going to the dentist? Sure, I know plenty of people who don’t mind it, or who tolerate it, or who dread it. But who loves the dentist? Well, I do, at least I do now. After my very first appointment, I told Dr. Sheena Gaur I wanted to hug her. I didn’t (‘cause - personal space, plus COVID) but I seriously wanted to. I cannot recommend this dentist highly enough, I switched my whole family to this dentist.
I have major anxiety when it comes to going to the dentist, but when I came here I didn't feel the anxiety. They are very thorough when explaining all that I needed done and I really felt like my comfort was important to them. They took the time to hear me and made sure I was good. I would definitely recommend them to anyone looking for a good dentist that will calm all those jitters!
I am so glad I discovered this office - definitely my new go-to dentist. Dr Sheena is very professional, kind and patient. She is always willing to help out, explain procedures and answer any questions. I felt like I was in good hands despite my anxiety. The office is clean and relaxing. I love that she responds to concerns quickly and efficiently. I recommended her highly... Thank you!! :))
The team was amazing at helping me get me get what I needed quickly and was extremely helpful. Highly recommend them
I wish I could give this place and every employee I met today 20 stars, they took absolute care of me is a understatement, people I was pampered, had me saying thank you a thousand times, I couldn't be more thankful for the treatment I received. If you guys see this, thank you so much for the care you put in to my mouth... umm yeah
