Emergency Dentist Q & A

Who needs emergency dental services?

When you have a dental emergency, call Dr. Wu before you head to the emergency room. In many cases, she can help. At Issaquah Premier Dental, she can address the following emergency dental problems:

  • Toothaches
  • Extreme mouth pain
  • Broken tooth
  • Cavities
  • Swollen jaw
  • Knocked out tooth

Often, Dr. Wu can see you the same day you call. The office also has extended hours, including early morning, late afternoon, and on Saturday

What should you do in a dental emergency?

When you have a dental emergency in Issaquah, Washington, call Dr. Wu’s office right away. Someone from the team can direct you to the best course of action:  depending on your situation, you should come to the office as soon as possible, head to the closest emergency room, or follow specific at-home treatment instructions.

For instance, when you break your tooth, Dr. Wu suggests wrapping the tooth fragment in a wet cloth and bringing it with you to the office. If you bite your tongue or lip, she may advise you to treat it at home with a cold compress or head to an emergency center for stitches.

What should you do when you knock your tooth out?

If your tooth gets knocked out due to trauma, call Dr. Wu’s office right away. Pick up your tooth, being careful to avoid touching the root. Rinse it only if necessary, but don’t scrub the tooth, as any tissue should stay attached.

If you can place the tooth back in its socket, do so. If not, put it under your tongue or tuck it into your cheek. You can also put in a glass of milk, but not tap water.

Get to Issaquah Premier Dental or your closest emergency center within 30 minutes for the best chance at full tooth restoration.

What’s included in a new patient emergency exam?

  • Performs a limited examination
  • Screens for oral cancer
  • Takes X-rays of the affected area

Through this appointment, you get established as a patient, and Dr. Wu determines the cause of your emergency dental problem and recommends a treatment plan.
