Emergency Services

Dental emergencies often happen when we least expect them. When you have a broken crown or severe tooth pain, you want a dental provider who you can depend on and who has convenient hours and scheduling. Our friendly and experienced team at Dynamite Smiles Dentistry is always here for you! 

In the event of a dental emergency, please contact us at our Scottsdale dental office so we can help you repair your smile and relieve your pain. 

An emergency dental appointment is not a substitute for life-threatening emergency treatment. If you are experiencing severe dental trauma like an injury to your jaw, please go to the nearest emergency room to receive the appropriate treatment from a medical doctor. 

Common Dental Emergencies 

At Dynamite Smiles Dentistry, we consider tooth pain to be a dental emergency. Suffering from consistent and severe tooth pain can point to a more serious oral health issue, like an infection or impacted tooth.

Having a background in engineering, Dr. Heday is a natural problem solver, and she can find an effective way to protect your teeth. Our team wants to relieve your pain as quickly as possible and find the origin of your discomfort so we can preserve your smile’s health. 

Common dental emergencies include:

Broken, Chipped, or Cracked Tooth 

Sudden dental trauma, like biting a hard piece of food, can damage a tooth or result from a deep cavity you didn’t know you had. If possible, bring the broken pieces of your tooth with you to your appointment. 

Dental Abscess 

A dental abscess can lead to a harmful oral infection and result from an injury, untreated cavity, or old dental work. Symptoms include bad breath, pain, and fever. If you have a dental abscess, we must see you as soon as possible to control the infection. Depending on the severity of the infection, treatment can include antibiotics, a root canal, or tooth extraction. 

Severe Toothache 

Many factors can cause a toothache like a deep cavity to an infection. If you have severe and consistent tooth pain, please contact us so we can determine the cause and find the best treatment for your needs. 

Lost Tooth

A knocked-out tooth is a critical dental emergency that we need to treat immediately if there's any hope of re-implanting it in your jaw. If you lose a tooth, call our dental office immediately. 

You can gently rinse the tooth, but take care not to touch the root or any attached tissue. Try to replace it in the socket if possible; if not, place the tooth in a container of saliva or milk and bring it with you to your appointment. If we cannot reinsert your natural tooth, we will replace it with a realistic dental restoration, such as a bridge or dental implant. 

Lost or Damaged Restoration 

A lost or damaged restoration requires speedy repair or replacement. Whether you have a cracked filling or a lost dental crown, Dr. Heday can fix it for you with speed and efficiency.  

Do you need urgent care for a dental problem, like a chipped tooth, a broken tooth, or extreme pain? Dr. Heday and our dental team can help you! We have several years of experience treating dental accidents, injuries, and infections, so you can rest assured you will be in very caring and capable hands.
