Emergency Dentistry

Have you ever had a dental emergency and needed help? Even if you make your oral health a priority, you can still experience a toothache, broken tooth, or lost dental crowns. That’s when you call an emergency dentist in North Salt Lake like Dr. Will Bates to receive prompt, quality treatment and relief.

If you are currently in pain or have another urgent problem, call our emergency dental office at (385) 300-8184 so we can help you.

What Is a Dental Emergency?

If you experience an unexpected dental problem of any kind, your first thought might be to ask if it’s really a dental emergency. The answer is that if it has to do with your oral health and concerns you, it concerns us. We recommend that you call us first so we can put your mind at ease and learn how we can assist you.

Some of the most common dental emergencies we see at our North Salt Lake dental office are:

  • Broken or fractured teeth

  • Loose or lost fillings and crowns

  • Mild to severe tooth pain

  • Jaw pain or swelling

  • Tooth infection or dental abscess

  • Food stuck between teeth

  • Dental trauma, including knocked-out teeth

Critical Dental Emergencies That Can’t Wait

critical dental emergencies that can't wait

Degrees come in all shapes and sizes, and some need urgent, immediate attention while others are less critical. For your own peace of mind, call us first. We don’t want you worrying needlessly or waiting for treatment when you need immediate dental care.

One example is a loose or lost crown that we need to replace as soon as possible but not immediately.

On the other end of the spectrum is severe tooth pain or jaw pain and swelling, where we would likely need to see you the same day. These symptoms can indicate an underlying problem like an infected tooth or dental abscess that requires immediate treatment to save a tooth and prevent infection from spreading.

Another urgent situation is dental trauma, such as a knocked-out tooth, where you really do need to stop what you’re doing and seek an emergency dentist for treatment.
