Tukwila Dentist Providing Emergency Dental Service

Fortunately, Dr. Timmerman provides emergency dental care in his Tukwila office. He is available for same-day and after-hours appointments to address your most pressing dental needs. Dr. Timmerman reviews written by patients consistently rate his emergency services highly.

Are You Experiencing a Dental Emergency?

Sometimes it is difficult to determine if a true dental emergency has occurred. A dental emergency can be any type of dental issue that interferes with a patient’s activities of daily living and quality of life. Dental emergencies may include a broken or injured tooth, injured gums, a tooth infection or abscess, chronic pain or damaged restorations. If you aren’t sure, it’s important to see an experienced dentist like Dr. Timmerman.

Tooth Injuries/Broken Teeth

When a tooth becomes injured, it is important to seek emergency dental care immediately. A tooth that has been broken or has fallen out should be placed in a cup of milk or saline, without being cleaned off, and brought to the dentist’s office promptly. If you grind or clench your teeth, or if you participate in activities that put you at high risk for tooth injury, ask about using a custom-fitted mouth guard for tooth protection. 

Gum Injuries

Gum injuries can be caused from athletic injuries, trauma, abscesses, or impacted teeth. The cause of gum pain can range from minor conditions to severe infections. Cutting-edge imaging can diagnose the problem quickly and minimally-invasive treatments help patients return to a pain-free life. 

Abscesses and Tooth Infections

An abscess is an infection that occurs around the root of a tooth. Abscesses cause severe tooth pain and can become very serious if the infection is not treated. Although rare, the most serious cases may require hospitalization. Treatment of an abscess includes prescription antibiotics initially, followed by a root canal to prevent further infection and preserve the tooth. 

Don’t Wait!

Dental emergencies can range from problems that require home treatment to problems that require hospitalization. It is impossible to know the severity of a dental emergency without a professional exam. Whether you are a new or established patient, don’t hesitate to contact our office at any time to address your urgent dental concerns!
