Emergency Dental Care

When it comes to emergency dental care, there are a range of issues that may require urgent attention.

Tooth Pain

Tooth pain is often the primary reason people seek out emergency dental care. This pain can be caused by a variety of factors, including cavities, gum disease, a cracked tooth, or an infection. Regardless of the cause, it's important to seek out treatment as soon as possible to prevent further damage and alleviate discomfort.

Emergency dental care is crucial for anyone experiencing sudden dental problems.

Toothache, tooth fracture, crown coming off, broken filling, abscess, and swollen gums are some of the common emergencies that require prompt attention from a dental professional. Seeking immediate dental care can prevent further damage, alleviate pain, and restore overall dental health. If you are experiencing any of the above emergencies, contact our team at Smile Vegas Dental so we can get you in with a same day appointment.

Common Dental

  • Toothache: usually occurs due to a severe cavity, infection, or injury. It can be unbearable and disrupt daily activities, making it necessary to seek dental care right away
  • Broken filling: can result in tooth sensitivity, pain, and even infection. Neglecting a broken filling can lead to further damage to the tooth, and the pain can become unbearable.
  • Abscess: occurs when there is an infection in the tooth or gums. They can be painful and cause swelling, fever, and difficulty in swallowing. Prompt dental care is essential to treat abscesses and prevent further complications
  • Tooth fracture: typically occur due to trauma, grinding, or biting hard objects. If left untreated, the fracture can worsen and compromise the health of the tooth
  • Crown coming off: Crowns are necessary to protect weak or damaged teeth, and when they come off, the underlying tooth can be left exposed and vulnerable
  • Swollen/bleeding gums: Swollen gums can be a sign of gum disease or infection. They can be painful and can lead to tooth loss if left untreated. Emergency dental care can help diagnose and treat the underlying issue, preventing further damage to the gums and teeth.

What is a Dental Emergency?

Any dental issue that needs to be addressed right away is considered an emergency. Dental issues are not always life-threatening. However, you require emergency dental treatment if you have fractured face bones, uncontrollably bleeding, or discomfort that does not improve with medicine.

What is Considered a Dental Emergency?

A dental emergency is any issue that needs to be addressed right away in order to prevent more damage, halt bleeding, relieve excruciating pain, or treat an infection. These may include:

  • A Severe Toothache
  • Tooth Extrusion
  • A Knocked-Out Tooth 
  • Sudden Tooth Pain
  • Any Bleeding or Swelling within the Gums or the Mouth
  • An Abscessed Tooth
  • Infection

If you do not identify with the following and are still experiencing any excruciating pain or excessive bleeding, then it needs to be addressed as soon as possible.

What do I do in a Dental Emergency?

Call a dentist during business hours. If it’s outside of regular business hours, other care options may include the ER, or an urgent care center.

If it’s Outside of Business Hours, can I go to the ER for a dental emergency?

Although most ER’s don’t have the tools to provide dental care for a dental emergency, they are able to provide treatment to stabilize and control bleeding, control severe pain, and provide treatment for dental fractures.

What is the most common Dental Emergency?

Since they contain multiple causes such as infections, oral injuries, dental decay, teeth worms, and crooked teeth, toothache and gum bleeding stand out as the most common Dental Emergency.

What Services can we provide?

We cover any dental accidents ranging from abscessed tooth removal, emergency fillings, broken fillings, fractured teeth, broken retainers, and anything to suit your needs.

How soon should a dentist see you in an emergency?

As soon as possible. If access to a dentist is unavailable, urgent care and the ER are other options. It is imperative to alleviate any bleeding or pain caused by a dental emergency.

Only my first visit and I’m already very happy that I chose Smile Vegas Dental. They really show that they care about their patients. I’ve had a debilitating fear of the dentist, and they made sure that they walked me through every step of treatment to make me feel as comfortable as possible. Everyone here knows what they are doing and they all communicate very well with each other. I have already recommended this place to friends and family here. Amazing team!

I'm going to start off with this: I hate going to the dentist. I always have. I've had some awful experiences with dentists growing up, and I always put off going.In my 39 years of life, this was the first time ever that I had a truly pleasant experience at a dentist's office. There was definitely some pain and discomfort as expected, but it was minimal and the staff was overly caring and friendly. Constantly concerned with my comfort level. I have some more work to be done, but I feel so much more at ease about it than I did before I initially walked in the doors. I will definitely be returning to this dentist, and highly recommend others to go here as well.

I was looking for a new dentist that was closer to my house and found Smile Vegas Dental through my insurance provider. I was easily able to schedule my first appointment just within a few days through the dentist’s website. I normally dread going to the dentist and get anxiety with getting my teeth cleaned and other treatments. However, my first visit was great! From the front desk to all the dental staff, everyone was so friendly and welcoming. Jon took my dental x-rays and he informed me every step of the way of what he was doing, which I liked. Cassie was gentle in cleaning my sensitive teeth and gums as I didn’t feel any pain like I normally do. Dr. Najand was also very nice and after examining my teeth, he recommended what treatment plan was best for me. Overall, I had a wonderful and positive first time experience at Smile Vegas Dental and I’m happy to have found a dentist that truly cares about their patients.

Everyone was so friendly and I was amazed how thorough they were. I've never experienced this before with a dentist. They weren't rushed and made me feel important. A special thank you to Kathy. She was wonderful and took the time to explain every detail with me. All the dentists and technicians were great. I will recommend this facility to everyone.

Brand new patient here, I had just finished my orthodontic treatment and heard about this dental office through a friend. I came in for a cleaning and whitening and the whole experience was phenomenal. The staff are all super friendly and the dental work that was done was top notch. I'm extremely happy with my smile and would definitely recommend this office to everyone. Dunia was the dental hygienist that took care of me during my visit and she was fantastic!
