We can handle all YOUR dental emergencies
The risks for tooth damage is always a part of life. From biting on a hard object to tripping and falling.
While we don't want to be Chicken Little and say that "The sky is falling," the dangers are everywhere. Whether it's eating hard or sticky foods or getting struck in the face accidentally, all of these are risks that could lead to cracking, chipping or losing a tooth. They are way more common than you may think!
Regardless of the reason for damage to your teeth, the goal of our Portland urgent dental care specialist is to be there to take care of YOU. Whenever you're concerned about your teeth or general oral health, give us a call and so we can put your fears to rest.
Your Portland Urgent Dental Care done right
At Portland Emergency Dentist, we handle ALL of your dental needs - not just emergencies. We also offer preventative dental care to ensure you are protecting your teeth and gums. We happily serve children and adults throughout the Portland area!
We're firm believers in preventative care. We understand that fitting in regular visits to the dentist can be an inconvenience, but we aim to make the experience - from setting up the appointment, to sitting in the dentist chair - as pain-free as possible. To this end, we offer nitrous oxide to help put you at ease.
We hope that you feel comfortable visiting with us for your regular cleanings and checkups because that's what helps reduce the likelihood of having to visit us for more major treatment.
But we also understand that emergencies happen, which is why we strive to offer emergency dentistry that provides you with peace of mind when something actually does goes wrong. A knocked out or chipped tooth is just a temporary problem, one that can end with you looking back and smiling knowing you still look your best.
No matter what actually causes your dental problems, our Portland urgent dental care doctors are ready to offer the right restorative dental treatments: including implants, bridges, crowns and root canals if needed. These procedures will not only restore your smile, but will help prevent future issues with other teeth.
Preventing Future Dental Emergencies
As with all things, proper prevention is key! To prevent injuries to your mouth while doing physical activities like sports, always be sure to wear a mouthguard. Mouthguards should be used by both children AND adults to prevent teeth from being knocked out or chipped. Ask us about our lab created Mouthgaurds. They are custom-made for a perfect fit and offer added protection beyond store bought ones. Don't risk your smile for the sake of style!
Also, be aware of your teeth. If you have a loose tooth or if you or a child are experiencing tooth pain, it's a good idea to keep away from hard or sticky foods until you've had a Dentist examine your teeth.
We can diagnose the source of your pain and come up with a treatment plan specific to your needs, whether you require a root canal, implants or wisdom tooth removal in Portland.
While it's often an afterthought it's important to be mindful of baby teeth that are loose, cracked or chipped. There are still oral health risks regarding baby teeth. As placeholders for adult teeth, if they fall out too early or are damaged, they can affect how the adult teeth grow in. These untreated issues can even lead to root damage of the permanent teeth.
