Emergency Dentist in Kenmore

Not every emergency necessitates calling 911—thank goodness. Nevertheless, every emergency should have a plan, so you can react with speed and assurance. In the case of a dental emergency, the first step is to call the office of Dr. Amin Taba at 425-247-1047. We are here to help, listen to the circumstances of your emergency and advise you on the best course of treatment.

Depending on the emergency you are experiencing, we may need to schedule a same-day appointment. Sometimes, in fact, a same-hour appointment can be the difference between saving and losing a tooth. Please don’t make the decision on your own! Your smile is too important. Call Dr. Taba for reliable emergency dental service.

Emergency Plans

As mentioned before, having an emergency plan is important. With this in mind, Dr. Taba and his team would like to offer you some tips on how to handle different dental emergencies.

If we asked you to name one situation that you were certain is an emergency, you’d probably say a knocked out tooth. This is the emergency that requires immediate dental treatment in order to save the tooth. In the meantime, take the following steps:

  • Gently rinse the tooth with warm running water. Be gentle, so any attached tissue is not removed.
  • If you can, place the tooth back in its socket and bite down gently.
  • If this isn’t possible, then submerge the tooth in a container of milk or a mild saline solution and head to our office.

Another obvious dental emergency is a broken or fractured tooth. If you can find the broken piece of tooth, rinse and place in milk. Use a cold compress to reduce facial swelling if the broken tooth is the result of a hard blow. Call our office and we’ll schedule an appointment as soon as possible.

A toothache is also a common occurrence that may or may not be an emergency. Try flossing around the tooth that’s bothering you in case there is a particle of food caught between your teeth. If this doesn’t work, then your toothache may be a sign of something more serious, such as a deeply cracked tooth, extensive tooth decay or even a tooth infection that requires root canal therapy. Call Dr. Taba, and we’ll provide advice over the phone on how you can alleviate the pain.

Stan A.

"I’ve been getting my teeth cleaned at Dr. Taba’s office for the past few years and love being greeted by all of the positive smiling faces when I walk in. I have very sensitive teeth and Dr. Taba and the hygienists are always SO gentle and take extra care to make sure I’m never in pain. Dr. Taba’s genuine care and love for his patients shines through his kind demeanor and great attention to detail. I can always trust him to get the job done exceedingly well and ease my anxiety about being at the dentist."

Lauren W.

"I came for a cleaning, exam, and X-rays while they were having a special. All three for $112! It had been over a year since I had been to the dentist and I had a few cavities that I was already aware of that would need to be filled. The cavities where confirmed during the cleaning and nothing else was noticed. Overall the cleaning and exam went great. They have a great staff on hand, a wonderful view of Lake Washington while relaxing in their massaging chairs. I was able to schedule a follow up visit for the cavities a few days after. This appointment was great as well! I will return for future dental work."
