Dental emergencies can occur at any time and are often unpredictable. From a knocked out tooth to loose fillings or a broken denture, these problems can cause pain and open your mouth up to bacteria.

Spokane is a thriving four-season destination where you can paddle down the river, bike through miles of lush forest, tee up at one of 76 area golf courses, or camp in gorgeous state parks.


The sudden onset of a toothache can cause your world to stop on a dime. It is a painful, life changing event that can prevent you from being productive and may lead to a loss of work hours.

A toothache is a dental emergency and needs to be treated immediately. It could be a sign of a cracked or chipped tooth, an infection, or a dental abscess (pus pocket) which is a bacterial infection around the root of the tooth. If left untreated, an abscess can spread to the surrounding teeth and soft tissue resulting in damage and pain.

Broken Tooth

Though our teeth are incredibly strong and hard-wearing, they’re not indestructible. Teeth that are cracked or fractured can be painful and require prompt treatment to prevent the crack from spreading.

Depending on the extent of the fracture, treatment may be as simple as placing a dental filling or a tooth replacement option like a dental crown. In more severe cases, a crack that extends to the root can lead to infection, which will likely require root canal therapy.

A knocked-out tooth is one of the scariest dental emergencies. In addition to the immediate pain and damage, missing teeth can have lasting consequences on your quality of life. In addition to reducing self-esteem and confidence, damaged teeth can cause poor nutrition and make it difficult to sleep. The good news is, most knocked-out teeth can be saved if you take the right steps immediately after injury. Ideally, the tooth should be returned to its socket and kept moist (in milk is best). If this is not possible, rinse the mouth and any salvaged teeth fragments with warm water.

Injuries to the Mouth or Face

The mouth and face are vulnerable to trauma and injury, and can affect your quality of life if not treated promptly. For instance, a knocked out tooth may seem like a minor dental issue, but it can expose the gums and other teeth to bacteria, which can lead to infections and even permanent tooth loss. Icing the affected area and taking acetaminophen can help relieve pain until you reach a 24 Hour Dentist of Spokane WA.

Other injuries include a cut tongue, lip or cheek; this type of dental emergency often requires urgent treatment to reduce the chances of infection and minimize bleeding. Other oral emergencies include loose fillings, impacted teeth and cracked or chipped teeth. When these issues occur, call Grins and Giggles Family Dentistry to schedule a same-day emergency appointment.

Broken Dentures
