same-day emergency dentist appointments

If you have oral pain, don’t wait to call us, thinking that your tooth may feel better on its own. A tooth that is infected won’t resolve itself without treatment, and you could be risking the spread of your infection and even tooth loss.

If you are not sure your situation is an emergency, call us anyway. We’re happy to assess your condition over the phone and help you determine if you need immediate attention.

We also recommend that you call us before heading to an emergency room. Most hospitals don’t handle tooth emergencies, and you could save time and money by calling Arrowhead Ranch Dentistry first.

If your emergency takes place after hours, please don’t hesitate to text us at (602) 843-0010. We have after-hours instructions that will help you get the relief you need.

If you are having tooth pain, call our office immediately!  Often patients try to “wait it out,” hoping that their toothache subsides, and end up spending more money and time in pain as a result.  Give us a call at your first sign of discomfort to help avoid costly complications and future problems.

swelling or abscess

If your gums are hurting, begin to swell, or if you notice a small bump on your gums, give us a call right away!  These are common signs of an abscess (infection) and it is very important to address this immediately to help prevent any worsening of the infection.

broken or chipped tooth

If you chip or break your tooth it is vital you get into the office as soon as possible.  After a tooth has broken once it is very susceptible to breaking again, costing you more money and creating added discomfort.

lost filling or crown

If you are experiencing discomfort as a result of a missing filling or crown you can apply clove oil (available at the pharmacy or grocery store) to help relieve the pain.  You can also place tooth wax or dental adhesive (available at your local pharmacy) as a temporary solution.  Don’t forget to bring your lost filling or crown to your appointment!

knocked out or loose tooth

Time is of the essence when you have had a tooth knocked out or loosened.  Getting to the dentist in a timely manner (30-60 minutes) can make the difference between saving and losing your tooth.  It is important to try not to touch the tooth’s root and to handle the tooth gently.  Rinse the avulsed tooth with water and place it in a container with milk (best option) or salt-water (if no milk is available).

bitten tongue or lip

Small nicks are likely to heal themselves, but if you have a large cut or excessive bleeding go to the emergency room as soon as possible.  Applying a cold compress and warm salt-water rinses can help speed up the healing time.

  1. Use a mouthguard
    Are you a fan of sports? Show your appreciation for the sport without putting your perfect smile at risk. Don’t get hit in the face or mouth and end up chipping or losing a tooth. Wear a mouthguard when you’re out on the field or court to protect yourself from a dental emergency.
  2. Watch what and how you eat
    Human teeth are tough, but you’d be surprised how easily they can be chipped or cracked. Hard candies and hard meats are just a few of the ways that otherwise solid, straight, and beautiful teeth can be broken. The easiest way to prevent this from happening is to think before you bite. If you’re thinking about giving in to your sweet tooth, don’t. Chipping a tooth isn’t worth it, in addition to cavities from too much sugar.
  3. Don’t chew on anything else
    Did you know that chewing your nails, pen caps, and other non-food items can cause your teeth to break or chip? To help you break this habit, try chewing sugarless gum. Not only will it help redirect your fixations, but it’ll also stimulate saliva production and cleanse your teeth.
  1. Save your teeth
    Traumatic injuries can result in chipping, fracturing, partial dislocation, or teeth that are completely knocked out. Failure to seek dental emergency care after such an injury can result in permanent tooth loss and the need for dentures, dental implants, or other dental replacements. Fortunately, prompt dental care from an emergency dentist can improve the likelihood of saving your teeth. If your tooth has been chipped, fractured, or completely knocked-out, carefully collect any remaining pieces and bring them to the dental office.
  2. Avoid pain
    Whether it’s a toothache or something more serious like a knocked out tooth, there’s a good chance you’ll experience a lot of discomfort around your teeth and gums, as well as in your jaw. The longer you wait to get treatment, the worse the pain will get. If you experience any kind of pain, call us as soon as possible to see if you need an emergency dentist appointment. Dr. Dockstader and Dr. Nguyen can provide you with treatments and medications that can help you avoid the pain.
  3. Reduce the risk of infections
    In addition to pain, one of the most common issues you’ll face after a dental emergency is infection. Infection can occur as a result of trauma to the body, including injuries to the mouth. If you don’t treat your infection right away, it can spread to other areas of your body and put you at risk for more serious health issues. Visiting us as soon as possible will reduce your risk of developing an infection during a dental emergency.

Come see your Glendale emergency dentist at Arrowhead Ranch Dentistry as soon as possible. Dr. Dockstader and Dr. Nguyen can provide you with treatment and medications to reduce both tooth pain and swelling.
